I missed posting my favorite full moon of the year, September's Harvest Moon, but it still seems appropriate here with "The Last Bale." It was glorious! (And so was Jupiter!)
And, for the journal there is my own sketched version of a Navajo Harvest Rug done in watercolors.
From the Web, of course. And, worth every penny of $2500, don't you think? (But not in my budget!)
Date: September 20, 2022
Time: 3:19 P.M.
Temperature: 97 degrees F.
Event: The last bale of the season was successfully rolled and wrapped.
Significance: The cattle are assured of ample feed for the winter.
We are thankful!
On another note, there are lots of rolls out there to be hauled to the hay lots, but that's not in my job description. :~)
As for me, I am looking forward to some cooler weather so I can get the gardens, both old and new, ready for winter. And there's the brick paver project that got put on hold last year when I broke my wrist. I feel ready for it now and have decided to put the pavers down in the Shanty Garden where I want to expand the seating area.
This week I did some sketching in the journal but haven't had time to do much painting. One of my sketches that I love so much is of Omar, which I will share soon. I wrote one of his quotes in the journal.
"To all of us the thought of heaven is dear~
Why not be sure of it and make it here?
No doubt there is heaven yonder too,
But 'tis so far away~
and you are here.
