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..

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 our picture window, from the coziness of our living room.

We are wondering about what those Royals have up their sleeve lately as we watch each game ...we won't expound on that thought other than
send a rousing shout out GO ROYALS!!

Enjoying the rain we have randomly been on the receiving end of recently, particularly since it is thunderstorms and not worrying too much if tornadoes were going to pop up. Humidity that it brings, on the other hand, what can one say other than one doesn't do humid well or heat for that matter. One does enjoy all the seasons and look forward to each one, just that some are easier on our comfort zone.
Read earlier today that only nine more weekends until football season starts. Surely, fall isn't that close at hand. Where has the time gone?

Talked to a friend from high school couple nights ago, she had some exciting news to share. She is one of those friends that we immediately say our greetings and laughter begins...one always know that it is going to be a fun filled conversation. She is one of most generous, kind hearted, faith filled people I know. Congratulations BMA! Looking forward to seeing and hearing more about your continued and well earned achievements and successes. Life long friends are such a blessing.

The hummingbirds, along with so many other types of birds fill the yard with their flights of fancy, along with the squirrels, rabbits running to and fro. Once in awhile will see a random raccoon in the yard, or a deer running, leaping through the field across the road during the twilight hours. Occasionally, a skunk or opossum show up after sunset, but thankfully that is a very rare occurrence.Skunks and their ominous odor don't sit well with my olfactory. Benefits of life in a rural community.

Wheat harvest has come and gone. Soon the corn fields will be harvested. The fields that once held the wheat and corn will be plowed and ready for planting new crops. Grateful for farmers and ranchers for they provide sustenance in this world we live.

Until we see you again on this dusty trail of life, or we post more random musings ----Live life slow, enjoy the simple pleasures, moments suspended in time, take the back roads now and then.. "~ 'Home is where the heart is'
