I can see clearly now…

Wednesday September 20, 2017  It will be sunny and cool today, a perfect day for getting the pastures all cleaned up. Way back in the beginning I'd use the rake and shovel method and try to do it every day. Oy! That didn't leave much time for anything else!  Once…

Weather and clouds

Monday September 18, 2017  Fall weather is the best, except of course when it threatens to snow on our event!  As we're intently watching the forecast for next weekend we need to remind ourselves that the forecast is accurate only about 10% of the time. lol  Sometimes they even miss…

Shhhh, listen to the quiet!

Tuesday September 12, 2017  I do not care for traffic, I do not care for crowds. I did grow up in the city but my heart has always belonged in the country.  But development doesn't stop for anyone, and I'm seeing signs of growth even in the areas close to…

Monday September 11, 2017

Monday September 11, 2017   I find that spinning and knitting help me deal with stress.  When the 9-11 tragedy struck 16 years ago, I remember spinning yarn like crazy while I listened to the radio.  Yesterday I knitted as I waited for news of Hurricane Irma and our Florida friends…
