Corn Bales—-Thursday, November 30, 2017

Our neighbor is shredding up the corn stalks—dust is flying and food is being prepared for cows

It’s a win-win on many levels.  The land owner doesn’t want cows on the land…he says they damage too much stuff

The farmer, who rents the land, would like to clear up the stalks in some form…either with grazing off the old corn or burning.

The ranchers, who like to have their cows fatten up on last years leaven’s, now gets a chance to have the corn — only in huge bales.

It’s a nice solution for all…the farmer gets the crop cleared off, the land owner doesn’t have to have cows on his land, and the rancher gets the corn stalks without having to trail his cows to the farm ground.

AND the field isn’t burned!  YAY!

That Shift from Storming to Not—-Wednesday, November 30, 2016

the-shift-001Around four o’clock on Monday afternoon the storm finally decided to leave

The sky started stretching and reaching further and further until the golden light burst forth.


The moving clouds were shifting fast and clouds turning to mist over the plateau.

The air was so crisp and fresh I could almost dance in it.  Loading up the firewood for the evening I took in great breaths of fresh air that was colored in beautiful sunshine.

eveningSuch a relief from the sharp gray overcast from that morning.

From my world to your heart!
