We had a Gusting, Blowing, Nasty, Sharp Wind Wednesday—-Thursday, October 31, 2019

The weather on Wednesday was terribly unsettling and unnerving.

The wind-chill was -2*f ( -18.8889 c)

It was spitting snow when I got up at 6 —I slept in having gotten up all night to keep the fire going in the woodstove.

We got the wood taken care of Tuesday, just before the wind took over.  Notice all the trees still have their leaves.  I hope this hideous sudden cold hasn’t killed the trees.

The Sky is Full of Fey Beauty—-Wednesday, October 31, 2018

The rains left last night and today

The sky is swimming with leaves upon the very cool breeze

The earth’s beating heart is slowing down, heading into the deep sleep called winter

Every day the sound of the beating heart of the earth is growing softer and softer

As the time of deep sleep nears.

From my world to your heart,



Weather an Intimate Companion—Tuesday, October 31, 2017

The leaves are falling thick and fast now on sunny days and cloudy days

I got most of them raked off the lawn last night.  I still have more to go around the buildings

As the wind and the clouds re-write the weather the corn harvest goes on.

(This is an old photo of the Elevator taken January 2016…the year the corn never dried down)

The Elevator opens at 6 in the morning and a line is there waiting

The air today sings of rain, but is only damp, with the clouds starting to part and blue skies shinning through.

Terry called and said he was sixth in line…if all goes well, he should be home for lunch!

Back in the Day——Monday, October 31, 2016

I’ve been going through ‘stuff’.  I’m a terrible pack rat when it comes to something called –History.  I have a very hard time disposing of it.  So therefore, I have lots of “stuff’.


And, of course every photo and every slip of paper floods my memory with all those experiences years and years ago.

This is me on my mare, Ginger and my brother on his horse Pal.


This is my little filly–TyLee.  Ginger is her mom.

ginger-and-i-1964This Ginger and I, with a friend, Mary Hill, holding TyLee.  Don’t you love the pants stuck in the books look?

And here is one for the memory books–

The girls I grew up with.  Our Mothers and Dad were the best of friends.  I’m the one with most of the dress showing.

Jamie Pinkerton is in the front–she has beautiful black hair, Judy Perkins is standing next to Jamie in front of me, Judy is still just as beautiful today and she was back then.   Then Judy’s sister, but my sister–of– my heart, Dixie, is behind Jamie and next to me.  Dixie is no longer with us.  I miss her every day.

I really don’t know who the baby is, I wish I did.

Well…now THAT was trip down memory lane.

Love you,
