Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Doing the Laundry

Doing the Laundry  is something  I really do not mind doing. I quite enjoy folding clothes and  I do plenty even though there are only two of us  to supply the dirty clothes. There is some small bit of therapy in it for me. I love the smell of fresh folded laundry and while I fold, my mind wanders to quiet times, simpler things.. family thoughts and to our future." ...and the aroma of  the laundry room as the washing machine comes to its final  spin is heavenly. .Do you feel  like this ? or am I just the  strange one? Whatever,  it makes me happy &  I do sometimes make my  laundry powder to save money and  find that also rewarding. I can hardly wait for the weather to stay sunny and warm long  enough to hang out my clothes on the clothesline. I think there is nothing nicer than  to crawl between clean bed when the sheets have been dried by the sunshineor to open the linen closet to fresh smelling  towels. I must go now, its time to fold the last load.

Look the Beach & Squirrels too!

 "Hi ,  (Buster here) I am at the beach.. in Crescent City California.....&  I see a squirrel. He's right over there coming my way. I wish I didn't have this darn ol' leach attached to me..It's really getting in my way. I know, I know "all dogs must be on a leash" Who made that stupid rule? Well I didn't let it slow me down too much.. Here it comes! I see him going down in this hole..... Gee, I wish that hole was bigger...I can see him... I can almost  reach him.. "come out Squirrel.. let's play."

Well that didn't work... but I see some sea gulls on the beach.. maybe they want to play... No, they are too busy  soaking up the sun.. just my luck... It sure is a pretty  beach though. Look at this  sand. I really liked running on it.  This is the lighthouse  my Mom & Dad  thought was cool...  especially at nightfall when it was all lit up. I really  have had fun on our first  camping trip in our camper. 

As you can see my Mom took lots of pictures of the beach from our campsite.. Did I tell you we were camped over looking the ocean?  Well blog readers,  I gotta go soak up some rays while its still warm.. and  ya know I just might get that squirrel to come play.  * tomorrow  my dad says we are going to go get some crab, I wonder if they'd  like to play with me?

Now That's a lot a Bull

 A beautiful day at the fairgrounds today. We do not have any use for a bull, or cows or plan to get any, but we did enjoy going to see them this morning at the 51st Klamath Falls Annual Bull Show & Sale.

After watching them get a couple ready to show we went to and talking to a few owners we made our way to the  vendors tables for a bite to eat.

Several flavors of  Fresh beef jerky and Who could resist Fry Bread? Not me.

Hot Butter & Sugar Yum!

Tonight the Cattleman's Association will be serving a  New York Steak Dinner, That sounded good too but we already have dinner next year  we will have to give that a go.

  I found the smallest pair of chaps I have ever seen.. Thinking of our two year old grandson and how cute he would look in these.) but of course  he is no cowboy  nor will he probably be one..But  a picture of him in them would be adorable.

I loved this display of rope too.. There is something about the smell of new rope and leather..I really like.

Sadly   we missed the working dog show last night , but the Rodeo is Sunday and that could be really fun to attend . We heard one of the local women  horse competitors was going to be participating in a bucking bronco riding competition. We do love the happenings of things going on here in our  farm  & ranch community of Klamath Falls.
