Back on Tuesday Last Week, Sunday, November 3, 2019

Back on Tuesday night, last week, Boomer and I took a wee walk-about

The wind was bad, restless; like a nightmare

Then it started to snow

I was frozen; we didn’t go far

The next day showed us diamonds on the earth

Which truly didn’t start melting until Thursday

Then warming up enough by Saturday it was all gone.  Leaving on wet spots where it used to be.

November has arrived; winter is officially here (no matter what the calendar says) 🙂

Our Time with SPIDER WOMAN—-Thursday, November 3, 2016

walk-with-tallyTally and I had lots of stuff to  do the day she stayed with us.

She willingly went right along with Terry or I, or even both of us.

sign-of-the-timesBut mostly Grandpa was busy.  So mostly it was Tally and Grammy!

corn-mazeWhen Grandpa was waiting in line, and a little girl got too restless, Grammy came and got her and we went to THE CORN MAZE!

Before we ever started Tally asked the lady if there were going to be people who jumped out and tried to scare us…or bloody anythings out there.

“No” the lady replied.  Just some fun searching and looking and coming out at the end.

“Okay, we can go then, Grammy!”

So off we went!

creepyThere were vignettes

creepy-clownAnd a alarming clown.

But we made it clear through with Tally leading the way.

hay-rideAfterwards we got to go on a hayride, win a pumpkin and then go home in time to eat supper and become

spiderwomanSPIDER WOMAN…Complete with a ugly nasty spider (which would have scared me) riding on her back!

Happy Halloween it was…for me and for her!




Brooding—Tuesday, November 3, 2015

ENow that we have moved from [my favorite] Daylight Savings Time into the time —- called get up and work in the dark and go home and work in the dark — Mountain Standard Time

The day does not so much dawn

FAs it just stops being night.  A small phenomenon, which will last for a spell.  Then we will start getting weak sunsets and weaker sunrises.

And all living things goes on hold, waiting for the lengthening of the daylight.

MThe weather apps say a big storm is to blow in here today…some places will see 45-50 m.p.h. winds.  Not good.  Of course that might not be here.  They are also saying we will see rain and snow at 5,000 ft.  We live a little above 5,000 ft.

PInk-Morning-RainThe clouds are gathering….I can see them coming in  over the mountain tops…a brooding feeling —- the Uncompahgre Plateau (not the mountain just above, that is Grand Mesa) has a dark and brooding look, the clouds are having a dark and menacing social party, talking about if they really are going to dump rain and possibly snow—maybe not, they darkly mutter to each other,  we just might like to fool the weather people.  Then a evil chuckle resonates between the cliffs and canyons as they band together chuckling.

NUntil the storm gets here, we wait, working at buttoning down all flapping and possibly flying things. We are gathering in the wood for the fire, making sure all can handle wind.  Or a huge dumping of rain.
