The Surging Wind has Brought Us Colder Temperatures—-Monday, October 7, 2019

We have had wind for several days now, making setting tubes a bit of a challenge

Although the daytime temperatures have been warm enough we didn’t need coats in the middle of the day

The winds gusted and moaned through the standing corn, across the rooftops and slammed into standing buildings

swallowing all of us in fine coats of dust.

The wind flailed the electric fences

and drove leaves, weeds and other loose things across the land and into our hair and eyes.

Sunday day we were still experiencing a wee wind, one that had a tendency to make us shiver.

I hint (just a hint),  of winter coming.

The Bringer of Beauty and Pleasure —-Sunday, October 7, 2018

It’s raining here.  Has been for days!  And Nights.

But I am not complaining, although we are starting to be a tad too wet!

Still, this morning after a very rich and full cloudburst

A rainbow appeared over our house, landing in the now harvested pinto bean field

And on the Cottonwood tree at the end of Fedler’s yard

The whole tree was alive with the color gold!

The sky is a dark leaden color, the rainbow over our house brings such beauty and pleasure I just had to share it with you!

From my world to your heart,

Linda

Ditch Work—Wednesday, October 7, 2015

We are working on winterizing the farm.  Boomer and I started picking up the siphon tubes and the orange dams.  Cows are very hard on things like that—they love to walk on them to hear the snap!  Silly girls.

DirtToday we are back at the settling pond.  He was going to finish it up in the spring, but has since decided to do it now.  The huge pile you see in the corner we will do just before the water turns in, but the rest of the dirt will come out this fall.

Actually today.
