Weather: It was partly cloudy and very windy most of the day. The high temperature was a chilly 55º. (Detailed Summary – click here.)
Sunday: This was a (needed) day of rest. All centered around Mass, Communion, and family. Of course, we did our simple chores. The gardens were watered. Because a ‘Freeze Warning’ was issued for our area, we covered the cherry tomato plant in the herb garden.
Plantings: Nothing to report
Harvest: Nothing to report
Daily Highlight: Washing dishes has strangely become one of my favorite things. In Hawaii, rainbows were always in view as I performed this chore. In Idaho, I was treated to magnificent sunsets.
So, when we moved to Serendipity Farmhouse I wondered what visual delights would accompany evening kitchen cleanup. I soon learned that grazing steers and sheep, along with the view of surging waters in our river would be a common scene.
This evening was not so common. I spotted the unique signature image of a bald eagle emerging from behind a large sycamore tree and circling upwards on the center of a thermal. The evening sun highlighted the sharp contrast between its black body and white head and tail. It was a majestic display of power and peace in ascent.
