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..

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...

Today is the first day of fall
In this rural area that means nothing at all
As the thermometer on the wall
Says it is still sizzling summer temperatures

We well know that on rare occasions
We might have four seasons in one day
So as I write this, by this afternoon, just maybe
It may start to feel more like fall

So for...

"It is morning in this rural area
Porch sittin' while sipping a cup of coffee
Sounds of life begin to stir
A rooster crows
A cow is mooing
Birds are chirping
A dog barks
As the sun rises over the hill
On this last day of summer"...~'Home is where the heart is' ~

"May Day! First day of May always conjures up a childhood memory.....picking peonies, irises, roses, from Mom's flower garden...filling our homemade construction paper baskets.....hanging them on the doorknobs of our neighbors....
ringing doorbell.....dashing away so it would be a mystery as to who left the flowers....(somehow they always seemed

As we were leaving the local cafe after enjoying breakfast night Thursday evening, a friend asked if I had seen his latest addition. Said, 'nope haven't. Well, hold on. Guess better find out what it is first. Maybe I have seen it.' No, I had not seen the Watusi cow that he had recently bought.

Before heading home we decided to drive by to see it. The s...
