Wordless Wednesday: Full Moon At Dusk 6 Replies by Texas Homesteader The full moon rises at sunset. Beautiful. ~TxH~
Nice picture. Talk about big sky.
You live in a beautiful place! Any of our beautiful views are marred by power lines, etc. A necessary evil, but kills the view. Also loved your old barn post and I have never heard of the fruit either. Looking forward to the creative ways you will use it. Raisins. Interesting to find a substitution that you harvest from a tree!
Barbara, I know what you mean. It seems I waited a lifetime to finally get here and now I don’t want to miss a thing! Beauty is everywhere here, even in the everyday. I love that you enjoyed the barn post (an old building very near and dear to my heart) and that the homestead fruit tree post interested you as well. I’ll be posting next week about different ways I preserved the fruit and the pros and cons of each way. Tune in! ~TxH~
Oh I look forward to all of your post, love the ranch and all that goes with it. I totally understand also all the blood, sweat and tears that it takes to make it a success. I grew up on farms, tenant farms, Daddy never owned any land and he and Mama were the two hardest working people I have ever met. Therefore, their four children were also. It was hard and I don’t know how they did it. Our days started at 4 am in tobacco season and us kids got to quit and go to bed about 10 pm. Then poor mama would still be up canning or freezing whatever we had picked after coming out of the fields and shelled after supper and a shower. Then we kids could go to bed. A hard life. But, all four of us kids came out of that life with strong work ethics and morals that I don’t see much of today. I am a dispatcher for Fire, Rescue and Police so I see way more of the bad side of life than the good, so I may well be jaundiced 🙂 The good tax payers that pay my salary are rarely the ones that I deal with. The old barn takes me back to where we lived from the time I was a toddler until I was in the 4th grade. As does John Grisham’s “A Painted House”. A lot of memories. I’m still not at the point in my life where I can look back and call them “The good ole days”, but it does make me fondly nostalgic!
The layers of color in the sky are beautiful! 🙂
