Community of Thoughts

What I really love about being here, something I never knew or probably never would have if I stayed in town, is that the people out here come together like I have never seen.

I am watching the wheat field at the end of the road grow. The thing that amazes me is that it wasn't leased out. when the farmer died, others in the area showed up to harvest and replant for the widow, expecting nothing in return. I am sure it will be leased out in the near future. But it is a nice, heart warming activity that is going on for the moment.

Sure, people in the town where I grew up would show up with food and offers to help with this or that, but never on the scale I have seen here. They don't take no for an answer.

My ankle still hurts, so I have been on light duty. I have a few things to do to get the goat kids ready for what sounds like a March blizzard headed our way.

A good neighbor is a precious thing.

I can't believe that we have snow in the forecast, it makes me want to cry.

I want all the darn chicks out of my basement and into the barn, but they'll freeze to death out there!!!

Yes, country community is a wonderful thing! :) We are supposed to get 3 - 6 inches of snow Saturday. Bleh.

Snow hit here, South Central MT, yesterday afternoon and it's still snowing! So far it appears we have 4-5" of new snow. 98% of the last snow storm had already melted and seeped into the ground. This moisture is a blessing and even though I dislike mud I will bite my lip :o)

It's forecasted to let up by this afternoon, have a few nicer days( into the mid to high 40's) and then by Sat. snow and cold again,now my lip is bleeding, just a bit, LOL!

Just don't overdo it on that ankle, my friend. I know you have to get the animals ready, but please just be careful...

Glad I live in the deep south when I hear opf snow this time of year! Almost time to go swimming here!

Have a good day...and take care.

Well, you know I'm all about spreading the love. Sure is different than what all people like to focus on. It's NOT all negative--maybe it's all a "test" to see how loving we can all really be :)
Hope your ankle feels better soon!

That is a wonderful show of human kindness. I think farmers and country people do go that further mile for others. It is refreshing
