Peace, evening peace

 The weather is beautiful, it was sunny all day, crisp temperature and light breeze.  Now it is still as it settles into twilight, the breeze gone, the sun setting.  The chickens are about to go to roost.  Cows are milked, back in pasture waiting for their evening feed of beautiful green alfalfa hay.

There is a big pot of spaghetti sauce on the stove.  Roy and Sean are finishing bottling milk and cleaning up.  They will be in for supper soon.  Roy said the cows milked well.  They are getting used to him, are much better behaved than they were the first few nights he milked.

I snapped a few pictures.  I hope they capture a bit of the peace that exists around here - all the time, but especially at twilight.

"Now the day is over, night is drawing nigh, shadows of the evening steal across the sky . . .  "

Sabine Baring-Gould, pub.1865
