An Unexpected Event

Nov
3

Pink and blue:

I saw this amazing, beautiful blue-pink-blue sky the other night and raced for my camera. The sky changes so quickly. I have seen an amazing sky over the hills before then waited a few minutes too long–and had it go dark or gray on me. But then it took me a couple days to post this photo because I’ve been so busy.


I have EVEN missed some Daily Farm posts lately. Daily Farm means DAILY farm. This page on my site, above all, is updated DAILY.

Please bear with me.

There are things going on right now and I can’t take pictures.

There are things going on right now and I can’t tell you.

There are things going on and I am sad and happy and worn out and rejuvenated. There are things going on that are unexpected and yet known, unanticipated yet inevitable. Bad yet good. In the end–good.

Please bear with me. For the next weeks, especially, as posting may be even lighter as I complete preparations. I have news and so much to show you and tell you, but I can’t just yet. November will be a wild ride. Please keep coming–because one day, within the next few weeks, I will be able to tell you. And show you. And when it’s all over, I will be back to my regular annoyingly incessant posting schedule. (I promise!)

In every ending is a new beginning. Thank you for being here.

    I’m not sure whether I should be scared or excited, sad or hopeful. I’m going with the excited and hopeful. Whatever is going on, please know that we’re always here, even if I don’t post comments as often as I should. Sending hope, love and positive thought, vibes and prayers to you. I’ll be checking every day, waiting until you can share your news. :hug:

    OK! So somebody else noticed that sky too. I wasn’t crazy (at that moment) after all. My perspective was a bit different though. I noticed it when I opened the door and the whole world seemed to have gone orange. I went outside and everything was sort of “antiqued” looking. Then after a few minutes I could see blue sky moving in from the west. Really wild looking. FabHub and his brother were in a garage working on a vehicle so didn’t see it, but the dogs and I stood and gazed for a while.
    Can’t wait to see what project you have going on – the most intriguing part is WHY you can’t take pictures. You aren’t usually shy about the in progress photos. Looking forward to the results!

    I will keep coming every single day (your site has really made my job more bearable, I take a little morning break to check it every day- it is a mini escape.)

    The anticipation of whatever is going to be revealed is ridiculous though. I can’t wait. I’m always both nervous/excited whenever you mention it.

    Anyway, like everyone says… Prayers,Thoughts,Good Vibes all going your way!

    Could it have been the northern lights? Not sure the date you took that picture but we saw them in Cincinnati.

    We sure appreciate your pictures…if you lived in Arizona you would see skies like this every day. Our sunsets are spectacular. but then you wouldn’t be snowed in…:)

    Change can be challenging even when it’s change for the better, as you well know. You’re so used to sharing what’s going on in your life, I imagine it’s almost as hard for you not to post as it is for us to wait to hear. I wish you peace and strength and pink skies as you deal with your current endeavor. We’ll be here when you’re ready.

    Don’t worry about us, take care of you. I love to visit everyday and whether or not you’ve posted anything new, I always find something that I haven’t seen yet. I also refer back to favorite posts A LOT! Just made another batch of soap yesterday. Thank you so much for all you have shared and continue to share.

    I figured something was up from your relative silence. I have my guess of course – I expect many do, and there are probably as many guesses as there are readers. Will wait for your reveal to see how close my thoughts come to your reality. Whatever it is, you have the support of the community here. Take the time you need. As Virginia Farmgirl said, when I visit and there isn’t anything ‘new’ I can always find something I haven’t seen or reread some of my favorites. When you are ready to be back daily we will all be glad – but you gotta do what you gotta do first.

    ????? BLOWN AWAY <—-Hummmmm, would that have anything to do with
    maybe getting a Huge Wind Powered Generator! Then Suzanne's
    electric bill just might be a tad smaller, that is as soon as it's cost is paid off…..plus maybe some credits for selling the extra watts to the Electric Company???? Just thinking!! ?????????

    Goodness…I’m almost afraid to say this out-loud but, is it possible that Suzanne may become a “Gramcracker” in a few months? :bugeyed: Such a mystery…can’t wait for the reveal!

    Suzanne, you big tease. You know, I was just reading the comments and the amount of love and caring was spilling out all over my key board, I got misty eyed. I am so gratefull for this site. It makes my day a whole lot brighter. Everyone here is so uplifting it’s hard to be down when reading from everyone. I really enjoy the forum too. So much knowledge in one place. Almost boggles the mind. Ok I am through rambling. Oh, Suzanne, could you possibly give us a hint a day or once a week even? lol. You Rock Girl.

    OK, I don’t know which page to log my guess as to what is going on…so here goes. Suzanne has cut her hair for 52 and hers wedding. Bad, good, old, new, inevitable, foreseen, etc. All good!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
