Where We Are, What We Are Doing— Thursday, July 8, 2021

The heat is back…hot like the underside of burning logs

The day starts so brightly, if you shut your eyes the light stays under your eyelids for a long, long time

Sometimes the clouds build up around us..skimming flat over the plateau

and a wind bends the long grasses this way and that

Then the clouds move on being pushed somewhere else.  (Which is a good thing with the alfalfa turning into hay)

The first field of alfalfa is now being baled and hauled.

The second field has been cut and is drying into hay—-

Our days busy, busy with the back and forth of this and that.

2nd cutting of hay:  First field is done, the second field in the process, the third field still to go.

As the Summer Day Ripened —-Thursday, July 16, 2020

After early morning irrigation

Before the day started to grow into heat

Terry started the process of

Of swathing the second field of alfalfa

We leave the windows open all the time so now our house smells like ‘fresh mown hay’
