Morning Walk…

This morning I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Even after a breakfast of eggs and tea, crankyness and an overactive brain threatened the rest of the day. So, Neko and I decided to walk up Indian Creek to where D was baling up hay.

I hadn’t been up Indian Creek for a couple months and what a change the summer makes. The grasses, clover, and flowers were all starting to dry up, but it was still a beautiful scene, especially in the Cormack place:

It was hitting the high 90s, even at 10 am. I had my trusty water bottle, and Neko took advantage of the shade of cattails and muck ponds along the way.  Unfortunately, Indian Creek is lacking in good human sized swimming holes, but it was fun to watch her dive in and flop down in the mud and goop.

We made it to the Reanus place a couple miles later and checked out the old combine (and a few more muck holes).  This piece was abandoned years ago after an attempted seed-harvesting operation.  I don’t think the ranch has harvested seed since.

D finished baling for the day soon after Neko and I decided to settle into a nap under the shade of one of the bales.   So, instead of walking the 4-5 miles home, we crowded onto the 4-wheeler and rode home. A mason jar of cold lemonade later and I realized my mind and mood had gone back to its optimistic self.  Yea for beautiful landscapes!

  1. Thanks for the pix. It’s been so long since we’ve been to the ranch. We’re looking forward to your big event next summer. What a great place to celebrate!

    • Thanks! Working on it little by little…figuring out bits and pieces. I still have along way to go before it’s how I want it but I’m learning a lot!
