The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Farm Life Series 8, Wind, Rain, Drought, Sun, Weather, September 17, 2021

“TLC Cai-Cai, what are you doing?”  Mom asked me in a puzzled voice.

Hunting, I mentally thought to her.  She didn’t hear me or understand…humans just don’t get animal speak, sometimes.

So, I just went on doing what I am doing.  Although, I did keep one ear and one eye on Mom so I would know what she was wanting. 😊


“You are nine months old, now, my Kitty-Kitty.  Mom said, walking behind me with her camera.  “Just to warn you; Fall is coming.  Soon you will see leaves and leaves all over the lawn, the grass will stop being green and the air will cool way down.

But this is all good.  It’s just part of the changing of the seasons.”

I jumped up into the air, quickly running off…I missed.  But I will get it the next time.  It can be anything…

bird (of course, not if Mom is around, lizard, or grasshopper.

Mom tries to stop me on bird and lizard, but she lets me get the grasshoppers.)

“Soon we will start having more and more Fall rains (we hope, Mom muttered to herself), and the air will get very crisp and down-right cold in the mornings.”  Mom kept pace with me while I hunted.

That’s okay…I like getting my photo taken.  Mom says I am very photogenetic.  Preen, Preen 😊

POW!

DID IT!!

I got a grasshopper!

SEE Mom!  A GRASSHOPPER!


“Nice, TLC Cai-Cai! I think your mind is on other things today.  We will continue teaching you about Farm Life another time.

Mom gave me a nice pet and rub on my head, turned around, and went back into the house.

I played with the grasshopper until he wouldn’t move anymore. Then it was time to go HUNTING again!

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-RAIN, Friday, August 20, 2021

Mom says we will get back to all about ‘Running a Farm’ next week, but for right now, there is REJOICING in the House and on the Farm.

It started raining and

it hasn’t really stopped.

As for me—

I’m not sure about this rain stuff.

Quiet Days — the Kind that Leaves No Mark, Tuesday, August 3, 2021

It’s been raining here,

Little showers of delight

Our air, ground, and souls cooling way down

Making a person think it might be Autumn

It makes me feel like Fall

Time racing forward

That summer will be over (too) fast.

Moments racing ahead…

The rain is nice, it’s actually making puddles

Still…over there — just beyond

Is Fall…

Autumn

The cool down, just before

Ah, well…until then

Our days go Quietly forward…

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.

Because —–Wednesday, July 22, 2020

Because

of this

Terry had to go out yesterday morning

And rake the hay…..

Please, Please, no more rain….not until we get this field baled and stacked!

PLEASE!

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,

Linda

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,

Linda
