One day we had RAIN!  And ever after we have been having rain clouds with rain all around us. (YAY)!


We had a fabulous, marvelous, glorious RAINBOW!  

Oh! the Joy!
From my world to your heart,



All the way from Wayne Township, Noble County, Ohio—Monday, June 20, 2022

I got a message on messenger with this lovely, lovely rainbow.

“Here is a rainbow from near Seneca Lake, Wayne Township, Noble County, Ohio. It is a double rainbow. You can barely see the one to the left. We had 1 1/2 inches of rain in about one hour. Makes around 5″ in the last week”

(And, if you look close there is the start of a third rainbow! WOW! Something I have only heard about; never seen!!)

What a lovely and beautiful gift…Thank you ever so much,

Hi Linda.

I was listening to the St. Louis Cardinals baseball game this evening when I noticed the sun was sneaking out to the West. There were still the dark rain clouds to the South. I figured I better go take a look to the East.


WOW!  A double rainbow!

Thank you ever so much from me and everyone who reads my blog!

From Kate —- YAY— Sunday, August 15, 2021

It is ever so much fun to open my email and find a wee gift:


We’ve just had the first rain of the season. Winter’s nearly over, storm season (spring) is on the way and is forecast to start early.
Each morning that the Husband is on day shift, I take Mouse out for a walk, carrying a sandwich for the Husband in my pocket. He pulls up his fuel tanker at the bottom of the hill near our house on his way back into the fuel terminal to reload, and I hand the sandwich up into the cab. Today, it was drizzling a little, but the sun was also out, and there was a faint rainbow in the dark sky behind him. You can see the A and B trailers of his truck on the left, he was just pulling out when I took the photo. I told him he’d dragged it into town from out in the bush specially so I could take a photo for you 🙂
I hope you’re OK, and not missing Mindy too much.  Our animals are tied by such strong strings to our hearts, aren’t they?
Love, and hugs,
Thank you so much, Kate.  Yes, they wrap themselves into our hearts, minds, and souls. 🙂  I do believe Mindy is gone, although, I keep looking for her every day.
From my world to your heart,

Summer, Blessed, Welcome, Delightful Summer —- Sunday, July 11, 2021

Although, we received no rain

The sun and the moisture in the air gave us

That glorious omen of


The omen that told Noah…all will be okay!

Exquisite, I Really Can’t Describe It Any Better —- Wednesday, July 7, 2021

Those flesh and blood creatures

Who share the farm with us.

The daily hum, of not just our movement on the farm

But the songs,

The physical movement

Even the air

The light.

All hooked together; like a large crochet bedspread.

From my world to your heart,


Magnificent Glory — Monday, June 28, 2021

Our oldest daughter (and oldest child) was driving home from Grand Junction when the sun created an amazing arch.

That most ancient sign of hope

There was a perfect double rainbow, glittering among the cool raindrops, on the desert between Delta and Grand Junction.

A most welcoming, joyful sight!

From my world to your heart,


I AM SO BLESSED —- Sunday, May 23, 2021

We were driving into town this evening to pick up the motorbike which had been repaired, and there was a really huge bow, probably several miles wide. You couldn’t see the top, it was in the clouds, but I’m sending you the left and right sides of it.

I think it was sent for you.  You all need it more than I do right now 🙂
I always love a rainbow!!!

Thank you!  Thank you! Thank you!!!!

What We Have Been Doing — Part 2, Sunday, April 25, 2021 (AND A RAINBOW)

One of the gated pipes had a huge crack in it’s side—therefore, we had to go through our extra sticks of pipe and haul one over for the repair

Once there the pipe had to be pulled apart

The broken one removed.

(Mindy is helping.  She had to check out the pipe to make sure we got the broken one.)

She approved.

Then we had to put the new pipe in place of the damaged pipe.  And hook up all the pipes together again.

Took lots of time–pulling and tugging, then rolling the gates up into position.

You would think gated pipe would make irrigation easier, but the reality is they are lots of work.

So.  There you go…the time-consuming repairs on top of all the ‘regular stuff.

And the gift of the day—A RAINBOW! 

Oh, the joy!

From my world to your heart,
