The Refrigerator!

 You probably notice I have two posts today. I posted tomorrows, along with todays. I hope you enjoy them. I choose not to change this. There is a reason for everything. Enjoy. B

About the time most of you read this I will be on a train, heading to take care of some of those things on my plate. I love the train it always gives me lots of time to relax, and think.
  It is 6:00a.m. Tuesday morning. I am sitting at the table looking out my big window. I am watching two deer graze around the new bales in the field. They are a nice red colour this time of year, beautiful.
 I see some movement back behind them; I grab the binoculars. It is a mother hen and her eight little turkeys. A big blue Heron flies overhead to places unknown.. This is why I love early mornings.
 There are big puddles on the ground, a welcome sight; it must have been a good rain yesterday. I know many of you are waiting for your rain, I hope you get it soon.
 Our pastures are almost non-existent; we are feeding the last, of last years hay. Our girls don’t like that very much; they keep searching for the elusive green grass in the dry fields. The watering hole and the ponds are very low. It is going to take a lot more rainy days to rectify that situation. We can only hope it gets better.

 I can hear the Robin singing her song outside my window, welcoming the morning. I can also hear my refrigerator humming. These are the only sounds this early morning. I hope the refrigerator stops soon. Its sound seems to bother me more today.
 Life has been a little crazy here. With all the outside worries I am finding this year much more demanding.
 Everyone has these times in his or her lives, and I know it will pass in time. I cannot control everything around me, even if I want to.
 The refrigerator has stopped running. Peace.

Photo Friday will be delayed, I will return soon.
