Quiet Gentle Days........

Our days are being spent enjoying nature and basking in the glow of being in the country.


Normally, outside our camper, we see mockingbirds up on the lines.
Not so this time. I think these are scissor tails. The field in front of our camper are full of them!
They dip and twirl and try to impress one another and have provided wonderful entertainment as we sit out on our deck.


I know my friend, Annie, from Hootin'Annie's could tell me just exactly what this bird is!


I watched them as I sat on the deck whacking up a dozen pair of jeans from my friend, Brenda.
Probably a good two quilts will come from this stack!


The view in front of me as I cut the legs off, split them up the ribbed seam and then cut that ribbing to be used as ties or on some sundry project and then fold and stack the denim for my next visit down here when I will cut them into squares.

This evening was our 'Shower Day.'
I COULD use the thimble sized shower in the camper but it's just easier to go down to my step son's place. I bathed first and I visited some of the critters while I waited for Louis Dean.


The geese were honking.....



and eating.


The chickens were rummaging around in the grassy meadow.


The swallows have built more than one nest by the roof line of their new house.


It smells so good down here.
I have been working the last two days on my book.
After a couple of hours this afternoon, I decided to take a nap in the girl bunk with the window right there open to the country air. Ah, the scents and the sounds lulled me right to sleep.


Everywhere I look I see a 'picture!'


I do love it here.


This is a zipper spider and he eats a ton of insects so he is a friend.


I wander around and find all sorts of fascinating things I haven't seen before.....
like this box of vintage metal toys.


It's so much fun to look around down here.


After our showers we came back to the camper and Louis Dean built us a fire while I grilled some smoked sausage and hot dogs for our dinner.


Cheers from the COUNTRY!!!!
