Tuesday’s Bee Poetry


It’s Tuesday Haiku:
Tuesday’s Bee accompanies
My Morning Coffee

And here is Tuesday’s Acrostic:

And I love you, too!

Join me this morning
For an autumn cup of love
From me just for you

Have a Terrific Tuesday.

See ya tomorrow.

Seeds of Love


It’s a snowy, blowy, ccccold day
here in south-western Montana.
An easy day to
feel blue,
trapped,
captive.
But, there is a remedy!

Are you feeling blue?
Take time to plant seeds of love.
You’ll be the blossom.

This may not look much like “Seeds of Love,” but if you were not feeling well, your husband is just home after being hospitalized for a week or so after surgery, and I called to say I was bringing you dinner, you might feel the love. Wouldn’t you?

I sprinkled it with “seeds of love” (I used celery seeds) and off I went.

I feel warmer already!
There’s no better way to
cheer yourself up
than to reach out with love
to cheer up someone else.

Who needs your “Seeds of Love” today?

See ya tomorrow.

A Great Smoothie


We purchased some pears at CostCo this week. If you have ever shopped CostCo, you know there’s no such thing as buying a “little bit” of anything. So, when we had a pear for breakfast this morning and realized they are perfectly ripe, ready to eat now, I wondered, “What am I going to do with all these pears?”

I have six more…

Then I began reading the CostCo magazine that came in this week’s mail.

In the Farm to Table section, there was a perfect answer to my dilemma – Pear and Pumpkin Protein Smoothie. Take a look:

By coincidence,
I just happen to have
all the ingredients on hand.
Oh happy day!!

  • pear
  • pumpkin puree’
  • plain Greek yogurt
  • milk
  • honey
  • vanilla (no protein powder today)
  • pumpkin pie spices
  • ice

Add a little tequila and enjoy!

See ya later!

Taste of Autumn


Shetland found the grass
Beneath gorgeous autumn tree
Tastier than most

Devastating Snow


How can something so beautiful be devastating?

BURIED CROPS

Near Wolford, North Dakota: “The impact has been great. Wheat, corn, and soybeans are still out in the field. The wheat and soybeans are buried in some places. We haven’t been able to chop our corn because of the wet fall, therefore making it impossible to bring cattle home before the storm. They need to go in the field that the corn is in. We have been forced to feed cows out in the pasture the last two days which is going to deplete an already short hay supply. We lost all our oats hay due to the constant rain and the snow we had last week. The picture above is covered soybeans.

Forced to feed cows an already short hay supply

Our farmers and ranchers need our love and support. The impact of the storm across western and central North Dakota is dire. Farmers and ranchers across the area were especially impacted.

Buried soy beans

What do you think we can do to help our farmers and ranchers?

They can’t harvest crops buried in snow!

One FaceBook reader who saw these pictures wrote a comment that reflects what most of us are feeling:
Holly Anderson “This is so sad. It affects so many of these hard working people’s livelihood. It also will potentially affect the costs for consumers as well. The moisture is needed but never is wanted in this quantity and this early. I am so sad for all of these farm families.”

Yes, mass destruction of crops
WILL show increased prices for the consumer.
How can it not?

Loving each other
Means farmers and ranchers, too.
What form will love take?

These gourds decorated the tables.

They reminded me of beauty in distortion

Never be afraid to be different

 

The Bozeman Symphony this afternoon

was incredible!

We thoroughly enjoyed the music

and the gift of a very talented conductor

and creative, dedicated musicians.

After the Symphony we tried a new restaurant:

Nordic Brewery in Bozeman, MT.

We highly recommend it.

Try to get Avery as your waitress.

She was efficient and adorable –

And the beer samples and food were delicious.

Bees and Honey


Bees and Honey

You all know I love honey,
And bees are dear to my heart.
How can we protect these pollinators?
Where do we even start?

Bee Thanks.jpg

We begin with our children
As we teach them the value of bees.
We show them how to protect
The insects around us – such as these.
.

We show them up close pictures
And let our fascination spread
To the next generation
As we substitute awe for dread.

Bee - carrying pollen.jpg

There’s so much we can learn from these
Social insects who do so much good.
Let’s open our minds and our wonder
To help others do what they should.
.
Enjoy God’s nectar, the honey,
And thank the producers, the bees.
Let’s do all we can to protect them…
There are no more important life form than these!

bee-die-all-die

It’s a message worth teaching
It’s a message worth preaching.
Do your part!

Thanks for visiting…
Have a great first week of Autumn.
