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..

This amazing tiny creature
Keeps the yard lively from spring to fall
Little but mighty
Delicate and graceful
Flying jewels, beautiful wonders of nature
Entertaining acrobatic stunts
Moving swiftly sideways, backwards, up and down,
A swan dive
Then soa...

"Autumn days
Return each year and begin
Painting leaves yellow, red, and gold
Vibrant colors gently, covering the earth
Rustle and crunch underfoot
Fluffy, comfy sweaters
Brisk nips in the air
Pumpkin patches
Apple picking time
Hay Rides
Harvest Moons
Nature bursting with beauty
One grand finale
The hush before winter" ~Home is Where the Heart is.....

It's pumpkin and everything spice season
Homecomings and football games
Misty mornings and sunrises bright
Cooler nights and brisk breezes
Sweaters and boots
Chili, stews and soups
Flames spark and crackle in the fireplace
Pumpkin patches and corn mazes 
Lattes and hot apple cider
Carmel apples and candy corn
Crunch and rustle of au...

'Up Home'

Over the river and knew we were halfway there
Up another hill, then down we go, round the curves
Cattle grazing in the pastures,
We knew we were getting closer
To that place where we loved and were loved
A country place our folks called 'up home'

We turn off the highway
Go through the small rural town
Go to the curve turn left, one block then right
Onto the pavement to

Nightfall...front porch views....eastern sky....setting sun casting a pink glow on daylight skies as they slowly move across the horizon to the west .... night skies simultaneously rising, meeting up with the end of another day....squirrels chattering and birds fluttering about as they settle in the trees for the night....rural life......serenity....

We have so enjoyed seeing all the first day of school photos of all ages and reading updates on the little ones who are just beginning their school years. It brought back flood of memories. One memory was prompted by reading about the little sister who walks her sister to the school bus and so ready to welcome her back home at end of school day. Each day after I returned hom...

Summer Rain Showers In Midst of the Night

"Quietude----summer rain showers in midst of the night.....distant booms of thunder....lightning illuminating the night sky.....rumbling gradually moving nearer.... pitter patter of raindrops... steady staccato of a gentle rain dance and sing a lullaby on the rooftop....drifting off to sleep dreaming of splashy puddles at daylight...."~Home is where the heart is' 8/12/16 ©SBDS2016...

Memories were made on an old tire swing that my paternal grandparents hung up on a branch in a big old oak tree
It was a simpler time and place
A time when a child's heart was pure and gentle
The old tire swing was all we needed
To while away many hours
Childhood dreams were dreamed
Just children swinging on a tire swing
Parents and grandparents sittin' on the porch visiting...
