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..

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 ...

"Bringing life to the yard each day
Hummingbirds  are amazing little beauties
Hovering, flying backwards, sideways, diving and swooping back up
Finally sitting for a  peaceful respite as if knowing that I'm trying to take your picture..
For a moment no more flight finesse for a spot at the feeder...

Childhood memories... Lazy, hazy days of summer at grandparents...lying on a hammock gently swaying between the elm trees... Watching cotton candy clouds floating by......bright blue skies.....a light Kansas breeze...mason jar of sweet iced tea.....cicadas singing a lullaby... Drifting off into a dreamy summer nap ......~ 'Home is where the heart...

Eventide....blue sky peeking beneath storm clouds in the east......yellow sky to the west.....rainbows and raindrops..... golden glow across the wheat field......rain, storm clouds, sunset show off their colors in the moments before night skies begin....serenity..from 'Home is where the heart is'
"Dark clouds become heaven's flowers when kissed by light." ~Rabindranath Tagore
