As Far as the Eye Can See
Good morning, Come on in and have a seat, its been a whirlwind around here so if we sit at the table I will have to shake the crumbs off the tablecloth and if we sit at the counter there will be some clearing to be done before I can relax. But come on in.Continue reading “Sunday morning Coffee”
It is fascinating to me how the inner landscape of a persons life can shift. In my case that means I have gone from being a person excited to write or blog about daily life to being someone who feels really private. I can’t quite explain it. It has been about a month or moreContinue reading “I Have Not Been Blogging…”
I wrote about Gina and her first 20 years a few weeks ago because the days were ripe with stories. But as I post this its Saturday and officially her birthday. As I get started on this blog I am tucked in the back seat of our Hyundai, Gina is in the front seat andContinue reading “Song of the Day: Happy Birthday!”
I have an enduring interest in American culture and right now that automatically seems to mean politics. Is there American culture separate from politics? Right now it doesn’t seem like it. I am a people pleaser so I tend to keep what I think about the developments in the U.S.A. to myself, in an effortContinue reading “My Theory about Roe v Wade”
In a recent blog I spoke about finding my way to taking a vacation in a convent in Toronto. In this blog I want to write about a learning that came up as that unfolded. What happened at the convent is part of the story, the rest happened earlier this spring. The earlier part happenedContinue reading “How do you solve a problem like Kaklika?”
Do you have time for an evening coffee? In my case it will have to be decaf. The windows are open, the birds are chirping a bit, the air is still, it is a gorgeous evening. It is 9:28pm on the longest day of the year. I think I have about a half hour beforeContinue reading “Come on over for a decaf….”
A few weeks ago I was blogging live from the Bar MW working chute. Today the location is distinctly different. I am coming to you from the St. David dorm room in the guest house at Sisterhood of St. John the Divine in Toronto. I am in an Anglican convent. Rain is falling quite heavilyContinue reading “Planes, Trains and Automobiles and trailers and my own 2 feet.”
There are some landmark days going on in our lives. Among them is that Gina is turning 20 soon. The echo of that fact in terms of my own story is that I am coming up on the 20th anniversary of being a hands on Mom. This anniversary and all that the last month hasContinue reading “A 20 YEAR STORY”
We got going a bit early today in order to be ready for the arrival of Harold. He is the trucker we use to take large herds to summer pasture and our calves to the auction mart. The first step happened when Russ and Morgan brought the group in we had put through the chuteContinue reading “Day 57 – Calving Season 2022 – The Tenderlands – Chapter 3 – Longings”
If you will indulge me I am going to play pretend for a moment or two. I am in this moment an on location reporter. “This is Kathy Kyle coming to you from the Cow Dog Lounge at the Bar MW Ranch.” While I lounge on a sectional couch in the pole shed our teamContinue reading “Day 56 – Calving Season 2022 – On Location”
