Weather—and the Hay is Down, Monday, October 3, 2022

Wet cat

“It’s wet out there Mom!”

“Yes, Mom, WET!!!”


We just needed a couple more days of drying to get the hay in.

Farming.  Always a risk, where the weather is concerned.

A Cloud Sat Down on the Farm —- Sunday, October 3, 2021

We woke up to fog one day after the rain

The world is all silent and close

Moisture settling all around us, and on  us,

The quiet washing the world anew!

From my world to your heart,


Together in the Wind —-Thursday, October 3, 2019

(From Pinterest)

Off we went, in the chill cool wind of late evening

Where we saw a rainbow playing around on the Grand Mesa foothills

The sunset was lovely

We stood on the ditch bank and just enjoyed being together out on the land.

My Brother Wrote Something —- Wednesday, October 3, 2018

One day last year my brother wrote to me a wee email about my search for purpose in life

(this is a random, but a consistant battle I have with myself—finding my ‘skills’)

I don’t seem to struggle as much as use too, but the ‘need’ to be good at something still rings within me at different points.

Anyway, I printed off his thoughts and read over his email randomly

At the very end, he stated something I have been thinking each of you might find a use for in your life

Dan wrote; “I have learned that when I am feeling pressured, stressed, depressed, or ill— it is a message ringing from my soul to change or do something different”.

Every time I read that my heart, mind, and soul goes WOW!

That is the key….the Universe calling loudly to me.

So it is with a sense of cheerfulness and pleasure

I can actually see what I am longing for—then, as lightly as a fluttering butterfly; peace and purpose fill my body and I can move forward.

I hope this amazing statement from my brother can help you also.

From my world to your heart,




Happiness! — Monday, October 3, 2016

i-love-rainbows-004In the midst of my health crisis (which is OVER…YAY!  My lung has unfolded and I’m back to normal, with only a small amount of soreness)

AND the heavens have given to us more Rainbows today!


The pinto bean combine Broke!

Terry had to remove the header (this is what picks up the pinto beans and loads them into the feeder house


A rock was lurking in one of the rows of pinto beans, got into the header and fed into the feeder house, whereby it mangled everything it could.

After a whole day of repair, by my magical husband, who seems to know how to fix lots of stuff,

unloading-the-beanshad everything put back together and finished the last field of pinto beans.

i-love-rainbows-012I wasn’t much help, as you can imagine.

pinto-beansThe last load of pinto beans will make it’s way to the Beanery right after lunch!

the-road-to-grammies-039We are celebrating, that is for certain and For sure!
