Dusk Coming Faster and Faster — Monday, October 25, 2021

Gone is the time when the days of Summer seem endless

The dark of the night is coming swifter and faster and lasting longer and longer

Still, the days offer amazing delights —sweet little eye-candy treats

The heartbeat of our bird friends on the farm, gifting us with bits and pieces of their lives.

From my world to your heart,


Thank You, Everyone—Sunday, October 25, 2020

The people who reach the end of their days must leave others who have to live out their days without them. Fredrik Backman—My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry

All your kind thoughts and words have made the passing of my darling little beagle easier.

I found another heart-shaped rock.

I was taking down the dog houses and putting them away in one of the grain bins, tears in my eyes, missing that little dog who would have been right by my side as I worked,

When I saw the tiny little heart.

Then Helen Walsh, who lives in Dingwall, Scotland, Sent me a lovely rainbow!

You are (all) so right!


Boomer is ever so much better, now, there is no pain,

and he is with Fuzzy! (They are bestest friends forever—they tell me that ALL the time!)

Life goes on.

It has to.

If anyone would like to give a donation to an animal charity in Boomer’s name (You DO NOT HAVE TO, only if you want too)

I donated to  Black Canyon Animal Sanctuary 42528 Needle Rock Rd. Crawford, CO 81415 in memory of Boomer.

Or send one to your favorite animal shelter, there is such a need out there.

From my heart, in great thanks for each and every one of you, to your heart,






The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— Black Beauty and I Have a Very Tiny Adventure Friday, October 25, 2019

Black Beauty came over to play with me yesterday day.  Black Beauty likes to play with me.

I’m very gentle with her, you see Black Beauty is a Special Needs dog; sometimes she just doesn’t understand things, but I take my time and I help her.

We sniffed out all the news on the farm.  Black Beauty didn’t want to go far without her Mom, but I told her it was okay.

My oldest sister was in the house with Mom talking.

They won’t be outside for a spell.

Black Beauty wanted to stand right at the back door and stare inside, but I gently nosed her away and showed her all the cool smells we can investigate.

Once she understood she was with me and it was okay to explore, it went very well.

Black Beauty is a Lab so she has a very good nose; i.e. ABLE TO SMELL EVERYTHING!

We sniffed here and there and everywhere—we smelled coyotes, raccoons, two foxes, and

Mindy cat.

It was a very nice time.

Then Mom and Black Beauty’s Mom (my oldest Sister) came outside

and we all walked back through the farm to Black Beauty’s home— gathering dog news all the way.

Boomer Beaglie Brown 😊

P.S. Some of the photos of Black Beauty have been posted before, but Mom forgot to get current photos on the walk; I wanted you to see Black Beauty in my news report.

The Air Smells Like Falling Leaves—-Thursday, October 25, 2018

Although I love summer best, my heart leaps into my breast with flares of joy for spring and then once more for the bright lovely days of Autumn

Autumn to me is more than a dying time, or a song sorrow, or a lament to the Old Gods

Its a time of remembering—as the leaves fall down on the weary ground and the plants close up for another year

The sky seems to [also] brighten into strong colors even more so than the brilliant summer skies

The air is not full of the smell of green growing things and thirsty soil like it is in Spring

Nor is it full of the spices and floral scents of summer

But it is full of the smell of leaves turning yellow and falling, drifting toward the earth where we mere mortals tread.

From my world to your heart,



WE HAVE BEGUN!!! —- Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Terry had the corn checked for moisture and we were DRY!

Out to the field we went, joy mantling our cheeks

On Tuesday’s bright late morning in October (thankfully not January like a couple of years ago) smelling of dry corn stalks, and shelled corn we began filling the truck!

By 1:15 in the afternoon the first load was down to Elevators.  By 2:30 p.m. it was back in the field.

Now…hopefully there are no breakdowns, or some sort of crisis, or rain…rain would not be a good thing right; harvest is here!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,



Makes My Farmers’ Heart Glad—-Wednesday, October 25, 2016

corn-harvest-002Yesterday, Monday, we started the 2016 Corn Harvest!

corn-harvest-003It’s early this year!  Wonderfully so!

corn-harvest-004Before Halloween even!  With blue skies and nice weather!  Sure is a nice feeling.

Last year, we were not able to harvest in 2015.


Nope,  it was in January before we could even begin!  

Before-DawnSo far we are way, way, way ahead of last year’s harvest!

terry2016 is an amazing year…we harvested corn in January and now again in October!

Not many years can boast two corn harvests in one year!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,


I AM BACK! THANKFULLY! —- Tuesday, October 25, 2016

october-moonAfter twelve very long days I finally have internet again!  I am so thankful I wanted to cry.  I know that is silly, but it’s true!

I’ve miss all of you.  Near and far.  It was like being flung out into Siberia, or the North Pole!

Anyway, the internet is back!  Tomorrow I will bring you up to speed on what we have been doing for twelve days and I will be catching up with each of you!
