I’m Back…I’m Back…Yep I Am!

I’m back…I’m back…yep I am!

From the adventure of surgery and I’m feeling like me again!

DSC07226

And I hate this part as I feel good enough to do more but my body says “yeah right gf, go ahead and try”…so I’m taking it slow.

But doing more each day…grabbing life and as usual hanging on tight for the ride of my life! It always feels dang good too…that ride thing on my horse’s back:)

I am truly sorry for being so long in posting a new post…I have thought of you all daily but I have been too tired to do much of anything.

DSC07208

And last week we had a severe weather alert…and a tornado warning….scary yes and whoa…tornado?

DSC07214

Here in this corner of Eastern Oregon we do not get tornadoes…ever…and now it is becoming a common experience each year with a tornado alert!

DSC05204

OK Kansas., now quit that…you can keep the tornadoes and we will keep our peaceful fluffy white clouds along with the man in the moon each night!

DSC04079

And we have hit over a 100 degrees already…unheard of in June here…another record and a first…not good for the wheat at all!

DSC07143

And I’m back…all is well and all is ok! I have tons of pictures to capture to make up for lost time and posts! Hang on and know I am not going anywhere! Wishing you all a wonderful evening with good stuff from me…

HRCG, Ellie, Melody, Dasher, Tucker and Wild Bill we’re over and out for now…but not for long!

Hang tight and enjoy the daily delights of summer once again!

Golden Dreams Call….

Golden dreams call to me, as the old clock with its steady tick tick tick lulls me to sleep….

SONY DSC

I smile as I remember visiting my Grandma each summer with Mom…

SONY DSC

I loved hearing Grandma’s clock chime on the hour and on the half…ticking its tock, counting the precious seconds in our families lives, for well over a 100 years now. Just think if that clock could talk!

Mom used to set the time ahead when she had to practice piano as a little girl growing up, in a much different world than today.

SONY DSC

I rest in God’s grace and His quiet peace…as the old memories wash over me.

SONY DSC

The crickets came back early this year with their nightly serenade singing me to sleep…drifting off to la la land:)

DSC05716

Life is ever changing…we all seem to live our lives dancing as fast as we can…

DSC03422

And I love the dance but, I do remember a simpler time. How about you?

Wishing you a “Blessed Easter” week!

SONY DSC

 “May you feel His Presence…and know His Peace…For He Has Risen!”

HRCG over and out for now….

Rainbows Are Dancing

Rainbows are dancing with gusto as “Old Man Winter” slowly waltz’s himself off to his snow cave for a very long nap!

DSC06849

Spring is coming…Spring is coming!

DSC06857

With incredible storms above…

DSC06852

And incredible rainbows stretching over my head as I snap happily away!

DSC05665

Now if I can just find that pot of gold hmm? Oh wait, I did…its living here:)

SONY DSC

Wherever you are in this huge world, I hope that “Spring touches your heart with a new hope…while filling it with crazy joy!”

Yup, I’m over and out for now…but lucky you, I’ll be back!

Sometimes…….

“Sometimes you find yourself, in the middle of nowhere…

And sometimes in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself.”

WY. Moose

I love this quote…as I know its true!

The middle of nowhere speaks to your heart with a reverent peace,

Winter View

As God whispers softly to your soul with the beauty of His world all around you!

SONY DSC

May you have a peaceful night and a peaceful tomorrow.

HRCG over and out!

 

A Quiet Reverence Of Snow…

A quiet reverence of snow falls softly on the land…as life holds its breath.

 DSC06118

There is something about snow falling out here in the middle of nowhere that brings a silence of holiness…as time seems to stands still.

DSC06037

Silence fills your heart with purity as the small white flakes fall quietly around you.

What

The silence brings sad memories too of loosing my sweet kitty girl, Minnie Mouse a year ago yesterday…

DSC06069

While I know she is safe and someday I will see her again,

DSC01435

I miss her presence and her sweet spirit…

SONY DSC

Her beautiful green eyes and her kind kitty girl heart.

DSC06118

Tonight as I write it is super cold, with icy roads and fog that drifts in and out of our canyon.

Old memories come back each holiday season as I miss the loss of relationship with family and miss those who are no longer with us. I miss the old days…and the old ways.

DSC00814

I hope that you all have a wonderful turkey day tomorrow, with lots of good stuff…new memories, good food and always lots of laughter. The second turkey we cooked on our Traeger….oh my, it is darn good! Whoo-Hoo and so easy too! If you don’t have a Traeger yet, get one as they are worth it!!! Everything you cook on them is absolutely delicious!!!

“Happy Thanksgiving” From “Wild Bill and HRCG”…

Golden Carmel Colors Of Fall…

Golden Carmel Colors Of Fall…Fall Softly On The Land…

SONY DSC

As the early dawn light slowly creeps through my window,

SONY DSC

Waking me with a soft amber glow…

DSC05277

God is painting the day for me:) Incredibly beautiful!

DSC05225

The surreal light lasts throughout my day…as do the colors of fall.

DSC01339

With the days being shorter…time passes blink fast!

DSC05284

Night moves begins…full of swoopy clouds with golden colors fading into blues, pinks, oranges…and a beautiful sunset!

DSC03649

And as the world turns…

DSC03165

The sun yawns and goes to bed…

SONY DSC

And as we follow the sun…we too yawn and decide Mr. Sun has a good idea:)

DSC03009

With that said…HRCG along with Wild Bill, Ellie and Tucker in the background are over and out!

Have a blessed weekend wherever you are!

In The Golden Light Of Life…I Fall Forward Into Fall!

In the golden light of life,

DSC04771

I fall forward into fall!

SONY DSC

Each year I go through a time of transition between the glorious long days of summer…

DSC05536

Into the golden surreal days of autumn.

SONY DSC

Memories wash over me…as time passes on…

SONY DSC

We do what we ought of instead of doing what we want…

scan0016

Time passes by and people pass on at the drop of a tear…

DSC03628

And as a warm fall breeze washes over me, it stirs,

SONY DSC

My heart with sentimental memories…tears flow easily as I ponder the whys, whats and woulds…

SONY DSC

Quietly my wind chimes call me back to the present…

SONY DSC

As I fall forward into the season of fall…with a heart full of both grief and gratitude.

SONY DSC

Wishing You A Beautiful Fall, Full Of Autumn Colors Wherever You May Be!
