Grass Edged in Gold — Tuesday, October 11, 2022

As I stood watching the long grasses in the pasture (the Upper End)

The sun broke through the west’s low-lying clouds, lighting up a unique edge on a stem of grass!

Thank Heavens for cameras, otherwise, this beautiful experience would only be a memory.

From my world to your heart,


There in a Sudden Blaze — Sunday, October 11, 2020

Thursday, I was out and about looking for things of wonder

Watching the insects and bees, enjoying the beauty of the last flowers of the season—

Thinking to myself that Autumn/Fall is earth’s answer to the sky’s gift of rainbows

Checking the bee house (it’s filling up)

And the ladybug house—-nothing there.  I don’t really know how a LadyBug house works.

When I looked up into the sky and saw a Sun Dog!

A simple, but very {always} correct announcement, of colder weather coming in three days’ time.

From my world to your heart,


The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— We All Walk About, Mindy–Friday, October 11, 2019

Mom, Boomer and I went for a walkabout.

That means we walked to the cross over ditch.  Mom won’t go much further because she thinks I will get lost on the farm.  Then we walked down the long lane to the county road; then home, again, home, again, we trod.

Out by the grain bin, we saw a FOX!  Boomer ran up to say “Hi!” but the fox ran off.

Fast!  Faster than an old/ancient beagle can run.  Of course, Mom was yelling at Boomer to “COME HERE!  Boomer, come back”!

The fox could have run off because of Mom and her loud voice.  Don’t ya think?

Then when we went for a walk down the long, long lane to the road, Mom made all of us turn around and RUN back toward the house as fast as possible.

Mom didn’t yell this time.

She just turned around and RAN!

After all that excitement, Mom picked me up, opened the back door, told Boomer to get in the house and that was it.

Run over!

Walk over!

Then on Saturday—-Thursday, October 11, 2018

In a very dark morning sky, we loaded ourselves up and headed to New Castle, Colorado where our oldest granddaughter was playing in a volleyball tournament

As the sun lighten the sky (as we drove along)

We saw lovely bits of clouds laying sweetly along pockets in the mountains

Their beauty made my heart light

And the world a bit sweeter!

From my world to your heart


High in the Leaves Dreaming—Wednesday, October 11, 2017

We were in Delta, Thursday afternoon, when we drove down a side street and saw a HUGE group of people gathered on a sidewalk corner staring, pointing, and taking photos.

Coming to a stop at the stop sign we lookedto where everyone was pointing and we saw


Here is a story about the bear.

And how it all ended!

What a huge beautiful bear!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Sit Still and Listen to the Whispers–Sunday, October 11, 2015


“There are times when we stop,

Blaze-4we sit still.

Evening-SKyWe listen to the breezes from a whole other world

Setbegin to whisper.”—James Carroll

How true!  We just have to stand still…and feel…listen…and there they are…the whispers of the wind, the earth and the sky.

Your friend,
