Just a small town gal and that is all I'll ever be,
where life is just another iced sweet tea away,
where you can see the twinkling stars at night,
the wonders of the moon,
and puffy white clouds floating across the blue sky.
Welcome to my blog from the heartland, full of random musings, observations, reflections, things I love, events in my life, humor..

Each evening brings a new canvas
No smog or bright city lights
To diffuse the artistry
Of a rural sky filled with
Vibrant oranges, pearly pinks
Magnificent purple
As eventide brings
Another fleeting magical sunset
That dreams are made of.... 'Home is where the heart is...

Live life slow, en...

"I've never outgrown the wonderment
Of awakening in the early dawn
To a winter wonderland
Of snow falling soundlessly
Dancing in the blustery wind
Before covering the ground in a
Soft glittering blanket" ~ 'Home is where the heart is....' ~

The silo
Stands stately and solitary
In the recently harvested field
Surrounded by a mosaic of colors
On a perfect autumnal day " ~ Home is where the heart is~

"Today as I looked out the window
Marveling at the various colors that autumn brings
Red, yellow, purple, black, orange, magenta, and brown leaves
Dancing in the breeze
Some losing their hold
Gently floating to the ground
I thought of long past fall days of my childhood
And my Mom's annual foliage tour
Teaching us the names of the various trees
Oa...

Cast dancing silhouettes
Across the road
As this autumn day
Softly
Slips into eventide"~ Home is where the heart is..." ©SBDS2017

Rhythmic pitter patter of raindrops....Thunder in the distance...... Nature  singing a sleepy lullaby
 
Life is full of beauty if one takes the time to see

Dust cloud settles slowly
Following the pickup truck 
Traveling
On the back roads
In this rural valley
Where time slows down
One admires the simple beauty
In the ordinary of one's life
 
 We hope we never get tired of the simple beauty of a cloud of dust on the backroads, or become
someone who doesn't se...

The day is winding down 
It is quiet now
Gazing at the long shadows 
Stretching across the yard
As evening approaches
Memories traverse through my mind
Of times past
Weekends spent with grandparents
Cousins, aunts and uncles
Football and baseball games
Foot races, blind man bluff
Jumping rope, Red rove...
