The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter 9, Friday, September 23, 2022


“Who?” TLC Cai- Cai asked as he lazily walked toward me.


Black Beauty,

and Kia!”

“Oh, I like Black Beauty”

TLC Cai Cai exclaimed!

“I don’t think I like ANYONE!

If Mom stays,

I will be okay— I can handle the company.

A Wee Bit of Sad, with a Hurry Hurry Plea — Thursday, September 23, 2021

The little hummers are still filtering through

They don’t stay long…just spend time to fill up then they are GONE

Oh, gosh! I say to them….Hurry, Hurry a big freeze will soon be coming and you don’t want to be here when it happens.

Fingers crossed I don’t have any more come through.  Which means they have finally made it through our part of the world to someplace else much warmer.

There in the Daily Murmur of the Land, Wednesday, September 23, 2020

These times we live in are so

scary, really.

I tried to think of a different word;

only scary seemed to burst out of my mind and stay there.

I have given up listening to the news

Reading hate-filled anything

Watching any type of National Sports.

I do so, to keep my mind sane, although,

We keep on working, and I am putting up food as always.

Storms clouds are not just building, they have arrived.

My Dad said I liked to look at the world through rose-colored glasses.

I think he was right. For I bury myself in the daily murmur of the farm.

From my world to your heart,



Thanks to the Gods Who Create the Creatures —- Monday, September 23, 2019

“I Really love that feeling when you finally find out why that book got its Title!’ Unknown

We have a beautiful young buck roaming our yard at night

The game camera I set up to capture photos of the raccoon’s; captured this wondrous creature

Moving through the flower beds, his coat shimmering in the camera light

The gracefulness of his delicate and slender strong legs, the chiseled planes of his face, the long tufted ever-moving ears are delightful to behold.

Unbeknownst to me, Boomer followed the bucks tracks.  (I didn’t know until I checked the camera.)

Thankfully I can enjoy this creature and not be upset with him…I have planted all things deer don’t like to eat.

Now raccoons, let me tell you they enjoy lots of things in the yard…the apricots, the pears, the cherries, the prunes, the wild plums, the apples, and my tomatoes!

Just say’n. 🙂 🙂

Back in the Day—-Sunday, September 23, 2018

Back in the day—

Terry grew up on a diary not far from us.  Lots and Lots of work a dairy requires, but one of the big things about dairies is the fact you have dairy cows to sell the milk so people can have ice cream, butter, cheese and MILK to drink!

Terry’s Dad, Jack Brown, (in time) sold milk to the Association (purchaser of milk) his grower number was 25.

Terry said his Dad wrote the number on the milk cans with red fingernail polish 🙂

Way later, after we were married and the dairy cows were sold, Terry’s Dad, Jack Brown, donated several milk cans to Meadow Gold Dairy, located here in Delta, Colorado.

Those milk cans have become part of Meadow Gold’s fun little delivery truck they take special places, we were lucky to get to see the truck, the Jack Brown cans with his name on them and Grower number 25 still polished on the cans with red fingernail polish this weekend.

It was a very special treat for us (Terry especially) to see the cans and to tell the story of Grower Number 25 and his Dad, Jack Brown.  (He also mentioned he and his brother, Roger, milked cows as they were growing up… :), just say’n.)

Another Photo from Merri—Wednesday, September 23, 2015

I’m late today…we just got back from delivering another load of pinto beans.  🙂

Merri's-LightsMerri sent me another photo (to share will all of you), of the stunning northern lights right out her door.

How incredibly beautiful her world is!

Your friend,


Linkedin—Wednesday, September 23, 2014

For some reason I’m getting lots of requests to be part of the Linkedin Professional Network. Please don’t think I’m rude, but at this time in my life I don’t want to join a professional network.  I do appreciate everyone who has sent me an email request; but I graciously decline.

I also have heard from other friends that I have sent out requests for you to join me in Linkedin —please know that I do not have an account with this professional social network.  I’m sorry if you have gotten those messages they were NOT from me.

Spend the Afternoon—-From Sara, Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Sara, Punkin’s Patch, did a post a couple of years ago about a springtime float down their river.

I loved the last photo so much I asked her if I could have a copy.  She so generously sent me one.

From-Sara Isn’t it wonderful!

“Spend the Afternoon.  You can’t take it with you”–Annie Dillard

Sara started her post with the above quote from Annie Dillard. Annie is so right…we do need to remember to just stop awhile and enjoy…there is much out there for us to see, things that soothe and fill our souls with peace and replenishment!


I hope each and everyone of you take an afternoon and just ENJOY…we all need to visit those things which stops time, work, and the busyness of doing!

Your friend,
