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!

DSC07017

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

Storms Of Earth…Storms Of Glory

Low rumbles of thunder grab my attention…

DSC03106

As the clouds build and gather over us…

DSC07017

It is eerily quiet as the rumbles grow closer…

DSC06858

Our sunshine and blue skies slowly disappear…

DSC03402

A stir of a breeze sends my wind chimes gently swaying…here comes the dust storm…

DSC02761

 And…BOOM!

DSC07080

Run for cover Ellie…C’mon lets go!

DSC03303

Its a busy crazy time of year here and I’m slow with posting…

DSC03323

I will return soon…until then HRCG is over and out…stay tuned!

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!

Skies Of Glory…God Of Light!

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

DSC05383

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…

DSC05398

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

DSC05411

As the sun slowly climbed out of his bed…

DSC00344

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

May you have a “Glorious” Weekend Wherever You May Be!

“I miss you much my sweet kitty angel girl!”

Psalms: 19:1

“Fall” Fell Fast Upon Juniper Canyon!

“Fall” fell fast upon Juniper Canyon…

DSC04958

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:)

_MG_6985

May you be blessed this week…with glorious rains and glorious life…and lots of smiles:)

HRCG over and out for now…but never for long:)

HOLY COWZ! HOT N CRAZY DAZE!

Holy Cowz!

DSC03687

Hot N Crazy Daze Have Descended Upon Juniper Canyon!

DSC03402

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.

SONY DSC

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:)

DSC03468

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!!!
