I’m slow today. Well, not slow for the day, but slow getting up here to post my blog. We are still working on the ditches and had a few things to do before Terry could take out the tractor.
(Sometimes I’m early, very early, because…well, I just can’t sleep at night. The stay awake and toss and turn thing so I get up and write a post to you.)
Terry is doing the tractor work, so I came in to visit a spell with you.
Once more we finished all the dirt for the rest of the year. 🙂 (Where have I heard that before 🙂 ) Terry went over and dumped the last load, while I drove the tractor home, and put the tractor way.
Then we worked on digging out the orange dams in the mud ditches. Always, always a huge job. We have two more to go, but stopped for spell. Now that we are ‘elderly’ we have to pace ourselves. Ten years ago the story would have been much different.
After supper (yes, we eat early…by 5:00–that is so we still have daylight to work in) we worked on winterizing the ditches.
We worked in a sky full of color and rainbows!
It was wonderful! I counted two rainbows, then a faint third one!
The end was right over our house! How marvelous is that!!!!?
The sky was stunning! Because the sun was sitting it turned the air/the clouds, the sky, and us—Pink!
It sure made our work go easier!
As we worked I started thinking how the year is slowly drifting into winter, but before the winter chill and frigid temperatures, the stunning beauty of fall blooms before our very eyes, the last of summer bursting forth in random elegance and grace, blessing our lives, if we just care to see.
