The River



All that snow, shown in previous posts, has melted, down from the hills into the field, forming a river. The width of it has increased each time I look out the window.  I could describe how the chickens have found a higher place to roost, or the neighbors have a boat in their pasture, but this song describes it much, much better:

This video also includes the old song "Suppertime."

I love JOhnny Cash. Thanks for sharing.

We're all hearing how the northwest was getting clobbered with snow, to be followed by possible flooding. Wondered if you were in that mix.

Lydia,

While you are experiencing an unusually warm winter, we, on the Eastern Seaboard of Australia are experiencing a markedly cooler Summer with higher rainfall in not a few places while the West of our nation bakes under terrible drought conditions with recent lightening strikes causing ferrocious bushfires.

I pray we have a cold winter here, and more rain.

I have seen weather patterns repeated every 12 years and sometimes 9 years. It will not snow for several years and then we will get a lot of it, followed by no snow for more years after that. I think of Sir John Franklin and his disastrous trip to find the Inside Passage, when I hear of weather "patterns." Later on, an explorer from Norway studied the possibility of climate patterns and was able to choose a warmer year to sail through the Inside Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

Lydia,

Yes. We're entering into a year of 'Solarmax' the tip of a twenty two year Sun cycle (broken into two more minor eleven year cycles) marked by increased sun spots and solar weather activity (Solar mass ejections and flares, starquakes etc). the first good port of call should be the Nasa website for more information. Though most 'credible' scientists have stated the Sun cycle does not impact upon weather, I believe there is more to this than meets the eye.

I see in the distance there is a snow storm on those mountains, and it is coming closer to that field. I should go out and get something. We have a tradition that when we know of a snow storm coming, we go get beans and rice and bacon, fabric, stickers and scrapbook materials. One would not want to be snow bound and risk getting cabin fever, so one has to have a lot of supplies to keep life interesting indoors.

I sure love Johnny Cash! I just watched the Little House on the Prairie episode the other day with the children with Johnny and June Carter Cash..

We were covered in quite a bit of snow, as well...

I agree with you Lydia, about having plenty to keep little ones (and adults alike) busy during big storms. Lots of arts and crafts and stories and baking!

God Bless!

The flooding has come back. The farm wife across the field from me went to feed her lambs, and found that the water had filled a valley area between her and her house, and she could not make it home. Her son got his boat out and rowed her back home.

I have a long list of blog posts and lots of things in drafts, but am caught up in keeping the kitchen clean, meals made and laundry done. I hope to post again soon and include the heart shaped treats made this time from rolled out biscuit dough, and from a sheet cake you make yourself, plus a few simple heart shaped ideas. There is so much on the web these days, one finds it hard to think up new ideas!

I am looking forward to your heart-shaped ideas. You blog is usually the first one I check for seasonal craft, decorating or cooking ideas, and many times I don't need to bother searching the internet further. All these creative projects in one stop!

Jane, I have a lot of ideas in my mind for Valentine things. I use brown paper bags, cardstock, boxes from the kitchen supplies, and stickers from the Dollar Tree, if there are any available. I hope to get busy soon and get these things posted. Thanks for your interest. It helps me to know that someone really wants these kinds of posts.
