And Then—Sunday, June 27, 2021

The wind and dirt arrived again

Making it hard to move around on the farm; littering the air and our mouths and noses and eyes

Along with the wind came RAIN Clouds

Lovely, soft, earth quenching, leaf cleaning, air freshening Exhilarating RAIN!

We’ve had a few days of off and on rain now!

It is indeed a beautiful, intoxicating, cheerful, enlivening THRILL!

A Memory of Winter’s Chill —- Tuesday, May 11, 2021

Sunday night a huge wind/potential rainstorm came rolling into our area.

Monday the sky was heavy with low clouds and the air sharp enough to make a person think of January.

The weather people said rain, but (right here) we didn’t see any.

Just smothering dust.

Hopefully, we will start to warm up again.  I’m ready for the winter and it’s chill to just be a memory.

Gloriously Hot —Wednesday, August 12, 2020

Perfect for making hay!

Rain, rain, stay away.  Come again some other day!


The third (3rd) cutting of the first field!

Finally, Sunday, July 26, 2020

In between rainstorms and hissing wind

The second cutting of the second alfalfa field

Is stacked and heading to other homes

It can rain all it wants to now. And the rain will be greatly appreciated.

Inspiring and Amazing, Swirls of Light —- Monday, April 6, 2020

I’ve been wanting to show you this for sometime

But Friday’s with Boomer came first, then the start of the water on the farm came second

But one-day last week we had rain

Which is an essential part of spring, bringing vitality to all growing things (and mud, but that is a very different story than this one)

What I wanted to share with you is this!

As the sunset, the mist created by the rain was the color of rose

I have never been blessed to see such a sight in all my life

The whole hazy effect was very enchanting.  Even when the rainy mist turned into shadows.

What a joy!  What a blessing!

From my world to your heart,


The Earth’s Blessing —- Thursday, November 21, 2019

While out-and-about, looking at the sky through the tiny lens on my camera

The two hens and Beaglie following me

Mindy choosing to NOT get in the way of two hens (they like to chase her–making her a wee bit unnerved.)

I happened upon a lovely gift of  heart…waiting there in the shadows of other rocks

A marvelous gift all dressed in gray!

From my world to your heart,

Top 40 Funny Inspirational Quotes That Will Inspire You Extremely 26 #motivationalbiblequotes

(From Pinterest)

The heavens sang to us yesterday afternoon

Washing the air clean, leaving the soil warm and damp, the grass shining, the corn leaves radiating their rich smell of corn pollen all through the air.

This morning the heavy clouds started rolling back; the sun claiming the sky.

Everything feels rich, yet languid, draped in lush shadows and pleasant fragrances.

Life is good.

A small teasing wind started blowing around Two O’clock yesterday afternoon

When suddenly the clouds burst open

Our Thunder Comes from the West — Monday, July 29, 2019

We have been having afternoon/evening/nighttime showers.

They are random and quick.

Building up; crashing and booming with lightning and thunder

It’s amazing and marvelous all at once.

Friday night in our town, they had an outstanding experience of an inch of rain in 30 minutes.

Where we live we got lovely, just right, rain.  The air clean and refreshed. The air sparkling.
