More Wood Stories, Monday, December 19, 2022

Cliff and Kimi bought a quarter of that huge semi-load of firewood!

So —we all (Cliff, Kimberly, Terry, and I) loaded up 5 1/2 cords of firewood and took it over to Cliff and Kimberly’s house.

This way they can cut it there and not have to come all the way out to the farm!

YAY!  for them and for us and the shrinking woodpile!

Light, Morning and Night, Sunday, December 18, 2022

And while we have Pink light for evening–fat, full wonderful Pink light.

In the very thin air, as the sun starts to think about getting out of bed.  Our world turns blue.

The Thin time.

Out There in the World–a Sweetness—Found, Sunday, December 11, 2022

“Boo Berry!” I called.  “Come See!”

“Right there waiting for us!  You and Me”

An awesome, exhilarating little heart.

Thank you Universe!,  Thank you, Earth!

Thank you, little heart!

From my world to YOUR heart,


Limitations, Sunday, October 30, 2022

I think I am improving.

I really can’t tell.  Feel better: do a little something. Then collapse, sleep —then start back over feeling a little better.

Still, I have hope.  This is gone for a long time and I’m tired of feeling poorly.

Rain Added (Although Not Right on the Farm), Sunday, September 4, 2022

Although watching it shower on the A’dobies was a delight.

The sunset bedazzling and very elaborate

The clouds gradually quieted as the sun subtracted itself from the simple life

Of our each and every day.

Work tilting forward always

Soon, Very Soon, Sunday, October 10, 2021

The weather people are telling us

We are in the very last days of Summer.

Any time now…any time

A visit from Jack Frost will arrive.

Bringing with it lots and lots of snow for the mountains

And hard killing frosts, causing our temperatures to drop from the high 60’s into the low 50’s

These are the last days of Summer glimmering in the clouds, the sky, and on the land.

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,
