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..

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...

Quite often this summer the heat has not been conducive to be able to enjoy one of my favorite activities.....porch sittin'. Even without the heat, just walking across the lawn, the bugs are quite unbearable. So much for peace, comfort, and serenity on the porch. So, the alternative is to revel in nightfall via the window, from the couch, with...

A boy, his horse and his dogs ......'riding the river together'
~ 'Home is where the heart is' 7/12/16 ©SBDS2016 All Rights Reserved

This evening, I perused several photos a friend shared on Facebook that they had taken of their son riding his horse into the river and his dogs following, swimming behind him to the other side.

Those photos reminded me of a saying ' someone to ride the river with', that have often heard th...

"If you ever saw the sunrise peeking from behind eastern hills
Watched squirrels gathering nuts, rabbits scampering through grass, a deer at dusk gracefully leaping across a field to the sounds of rushing water.
Seeing stars brighten up the night without the reflection of city lights
Listened to cicadas, the tree frogs croak after a soaking r...

Independence Day is now a few days past, but the reason for it spans beyond that day. It was a quiet day, ....well, let's say quiet as could be since it was 4th of July. We say job well done to all our fellow neighbors who put on this show for their own families and friends. We enjoyed watching the blaze of colors bursting forth into the sky through ...
