Skies of glory was incredible to capture…I hope you enjoy the photos!

It all began Friday morning about 7:30 when the sky colors and odd clouds caught my eye…

DSC05384

I looked out while grabbing my camera!

DSC05386

No time for shoes…thankfully it was already 58 degrees!

DSC05400

The colors and clouds kept changing…it was calm here but there was turbulence above in the clouds…

DSC05406

The majestic light of Heaven was shining through the clouds with iridescent amber colors…

And the word “Glory” was on my mind…”Shekinah Glory.”

As the sun slowly climbed out of his bed…

He peeked out at my camera and beamed his bright golden rays of light, for a beautiful day!

“Fall” Fell Fast Upon Juniper Canyon!

“Fall” fell fast upon Juniper Canyon…

We went from a HOT 100 degrees a week ago to a low of 38 degrees last night…our weather has been weird and crazy the last few years…and this was a blessed but crazy weather event!

DSC04938

A half-inch of rain fell overnight…and a half-inch of rain is a glorious blessing!

DSC04820

Ellie and I did the happy dance…

DSC04578

Of course the wind blew all day…causing some dust to blow…

DSC04981

But…we got rain! It was incredibly peaceful hearing it on the roof last night lulling us to sleep…and waking up today seeing rain puddles outside:)

DSC05304

Yep we are care takers of the land and we love seeing it watered with heaven’s glory and grace…

DSC03650

And the fires in Oregon had a mix of God’s grace with snow and rain but mostly snow…it helped huge:)

DSC04959

Fall is in the air and Melody is smiling! Click on the picture and you will see her smiles:)

DSC04982

I hope for more fall rains to come…with raindrops falling on my head:)

Along with dust storms without wind. Its eyrie when the dust begins to rise without the wind!

DSC03404

Creepy unusual clouds above my head…

DSC03405

Almost makes you feel like you are in the Outer Limits or the Twilight Zone!

DSC03420

Kaaaa-Boom the thunder and lightning began. I was over feeding Melody and saw the strike hit…

The first fire of the season was born with winds blowing in our direction…we live about 10 miles from here if we drive the road but across country it is only 5-6 miles with lots of wheat fields in between.

11209512_1056803757663010_4242742552326542406_n

Our neighbors and community jumped into action and thankfully no one was hurt, no homes were lost and the fire was out! Sadly they lost several hundred acres of wheat.

Scary times here as we have been declared a drought county…

DSC03480

Last night it was 73 degrees at 11:30…that is hot for us this time of year…

DSC03595

We have hit above 100 degrees most of the month of June…with a week straight of 110 plus degrees!

DSC03455

Stay tuned with Ellie and I on the dusty trail of life:)

I came across this a long time ago and it hits the nail on the head for people who blame their problems and mistakes on their family or on their parents or on the man in the moon. They blame every problem they have on someone else, unfortunately until they quit telling lies and using manipulations, until they admit their wrongs and look only to themselves, they are a lost cause. I know people that are very good at lying, really good and they roll along sucking people into their lies. They believe their lies so much they create a false truth and will defend their lies at any cost to you or anyone else.  I agree with this poster…Hallelujah and Amen!

Matching Clouds Of Weirdness….

Alerted me to grab my camera and click click click!

DSC02984

Ominous clouds of doom…hmmm?

DSC02985

Very unusual clouds for us here in Eastern Oregon.

DSC02992

I noted the right cloud was getting larger at the top…while the left one was sort of morphing into something else?

DSC02991

I zoomed in on the right cloud, it was huge…we did not have a storm here but something unusual was going on in the heavens above! This odd cloud formation, reminded me of Close Encounters Of The Third Kind!

DSC02596

Its 90 degrees here right now…crazy hot for this time of year!

HRCG and Ellie are over and out for now…but we’ll be back:)

Happy Weekend!!!

Country Girl Views Of Spring Time Renewal

Country girl views of spring time renewal, often begins…

DSC01998

With the view out your windows of intense blue skies and vivid green fields.

DSC02000

And Ellie Belle on point as she can hear voles or field mice in the pasture…

DSC02002

Rain showers move in quickly as on cue to sprinkle the crops and the land…

DSC02021

As Melody runs for cover!

I love seeing all that looked dead a few months ago, come back alive with a new season of hope…the farmers are out in the fields again and I am out and about doing spring time clean up…it feels good to breathe deeply the smell of Spring, while working up a sweat with the warmth of the sun on my back.

DSC02004

And as the day draws to a close…

DSC02086

With beautiful skies and colors all around…

DSC02006

The man in the moon above says…Goodnight and Sleep Tight!

Ellie And I Had….

An excellent adventure! Our first Spring walkabout!

DSC01907

It was heavenly to feel the warm sun on our backs as we hiked up the hill!

DSC02200

Winter seemed long this year with the lack of snow and our usual winter weather…instead we had blah days of gray overhead with occasional fog.

DSC01923

Thank goodness, Spring has arrived with clear blue skies as far as I can see…not a cloud in sight!

DSC01945

And Ellie found something and she is digging it!

DSC02941

I do love my clouds as long as they are like this…they are fun to capture on film!

DSC01948

And Ellie is yet digging….she is such a character!

DSC03072

Melody is shedding out her winter coat…she is so pretty this time of year as her dark red bay hair sheds out to reveal the white roan hair underneath…she is my horse of ever changing colors! She is called a Red Bay Roan, her legs remain black as does her mane and tail and her head…but her body roans out in summer and she is striking when you see her! I think she is beautiful…and yes she is my horse of course:)

DSC06734

And as the day began to draw to a close….

DSC01950

The incredible skies we have here during “magic time” stop me in my tracks….I’m a grabbing my camera!

DSC01890

And Ellie Belle is happy and ready for a nap…and it sounds like a good idea!

HRCG is over and out for now but hang on….I will be back!

Golden Days Of Summer….

Golden days of summer is dedicated to those dealing with freezing temps and bitter cold…along with snow and ice…and nasty winds producing impassable drifts…in other words Old Man Winter.

SONY DSC

I gathered a few favorite photos from last summer and fall…I hope they will warm you up with some encouragement that soon…those warm days of summer will return!

Our patio is our hang out place during summer months…

I miss you kitty girl…my sweet Min-Mouse…forever you are in my heart…and someday we will be together again my sweet kitty angel girl.

SONY DSC

My flowers last summer went viral…and were amazing!

DSC05798

 And Ms. Ellie Belle…she is with me all the time. She is 100% Australian Shepherd and I am her herd…

DSC06374

She seeks to protect me so she always walks in front of me checking things out…and she goes into defensive kill when she senses danger of any kind. We love this girl lots…she has a beautiful heart like Minnie…I think Minnie sent her to be with us.

SONY DSC

Here’s hoping the spring and summer of 2015 will be warm and beautiful with incredible skies and weather!
