The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— Out and About with Mom and Mindy (sometimes)

Mom and I

and sometimes Mindy, took walks in the rain, in the wind, at night, and in the storm we had.

But this morning we took a walk in SUNSHINE!

Anyway, here are some of the things we saw

These tiny birds are back…YAY!  Mom and I love to see them and watch them…they watch us, by freezing very still, not moving at all.

If Mom talks to them, they get very nervous but don’t move.

Last night, after the storm left, Mom and I went for a short walk to the old tree, which is no longer there, because the ditch company sprayed and killed it….and Mom saw a helicopter coming our way.

She took a picture (Mom always has her camera with her) just to see if the helicopter would show up.  Only the lights on the helicopter showed up.  Still kinda cool.

Our storms were mild compared to other places so the renter is back on the land this morning.

The sun setting through the storm last night was rather cool.

Mom and I checked the apricot blooms…yep, froze.  There might be a few that make it, but nothing like there could have been.

The canal water came yesterday!

Mom and Dad and I all thought YAY!

Dad says today we make ditches!

Oh!  I hear a big truck!  I know that motor!

Gotta go!

See ya,

Boomer

Undulating Waves of Light —- Monday, March 25, 2019

It’ has rained every day since Friday

The morning sun struggled to break through the thick clouds; color skimming over the tops of the Paonia mountains and under the massive drizzling thick, heavy clouds

Then last night, the sun broke through, making everything bright and dazzling

And I saw in the northeast

A rainbow, filling my beating heart with quiet happiness

Today the sun is shining it all it’s splendor, with a taste of warmth in the air!

From my heart to your world,

Linda

 

My Mother Always Said—Wednesday, March 13, 2019

Our sun is covered with thick clouds of heavy moisture….it has been for three days

Today we have wind…lots and lots of wind, plus rain and very cold temperatures.

The birds are flying low the sky; the air full of their calls.

Wind is good and bad…for it is the wind that will move this stuff out of here; chilling us to the bone.

And possibly drying up all the rain.  🙂

My mother always said: “When Easter is late so is Spring”.  

I think she is right! 🙂

Pure and Wonderful Delight—-Sunday, March 3, 2019

We had rain…I tried to get a photo of it last night, rain is rather hard to photograph in the dark…

Just say’n.

But still, I had fun trying.

Yesterday our oldest daughter saw a marvelous rainbow on her way to work

So, because I love rainbows…she sent a photo to me!

Even though we are so terribly wet, and the days are dark and dreary Boomer’s and my little walkabouts are showing that Spring is starting to arrive

And this morning after a night of hard rain

I see GREEN starting to appear!

YAY!

A Taste of Spring—Sunday, February 3, 2019

It rained during the night…soft gentle rain, then heavy mud creating rain

But on my way out to take care of the two little fluffy hens

The gray light started to brighten, the clouds drifted into clumps instead of one big mass

The sun broke forth and I saw two Rainbows.  At different parts of the sky!

MAGIC and Wonder right here and now in FEBRUARY!!

Wings in the Air — Thursday, November 29, 2018

The sky is full of sounds

And color — storms play around us

There fun little birds flowing between here and there

The shadows cast by their little feathery bodies is more than a delight to me

The rain and the

snow shimmer here and there (we only got snow one day here and it was gone by noon)

And sometimes…there are other wings beating the air!

From my heart to your world,

Linda

 

The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— And Then It Rained

All summer long (off and on) we wished for rain.  Of course, we didn’t want rain when the hay was down, or when Dad was doing the pinto beans, but there were times when the sun beat down without mercy and the temperatures stayed above 100*…even as high as 106* for DAYS!

It was at those times we prayed for rain.  Please send rain we would pray…all of us.  The Plants, the rocks, the animals, all.

But the rains didn’t come.

It’s fall now and guess what?

THE RAINS HAVE COME!

Big fat drops…not just a few big fat drops but MANY and Much and lots so much so it’s hard to gather any sort of news at any point on the farm!

Although, I do try!

There isn’t any news on the very wet lawn. I check every time I go outside.

There isn’t any news out by the haystack yard

Or the cornfield

Or the Butler Bins

Or down the long, long lane to the house

There really isn’t any news when it’s raining so hard I can’t see my paw in front of my face

BUT

JOY BE!!! HOWL!!!!!

Mom and Dad have company and now there is

NEWS!

P.S.  Mom wrote the forest service about that big fire up behind us—this the answer she got back—- “the fire will burn in the interior until it receives a great deal of moisture. It is contained, just not entirely out. I hope that explains it?

So, Mom and I think we need LOTS MORE RAIN!  But up there on the Plateau, so that big awful fire will die and go away!

 

 

 

Only the Rain Falling is the Constant Sound —-Monday, October 8, 2018

It’s been raining for days and days…and nights and nights

But with the rain, there are bursts of color which pummels the dark sky with joy

The sun breaks through the heavy clouds

Freshening the sky and our eyes

From my world to your hearts,

Linda

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

The Sky is Full of Rain the Trees Dripping with Answer—-Tuesday, October 2, 2018

It’s raining here!  A beautiful soft ground soaking pleasurable Autumn rain.

The rain is causing the Earth, the plants, and ME to sing with gladness!

Rain!

Glorious wonderful exquisite Rain!
