I did, indeed, go to bed early and slept late .....as in 10:00 this morning.
No guilt because I am RETIRED! Louis Dean says that just means we get TIRED again!!
After we completed our morning routine - which included coffee and Chocolate Sundae Pop Tart - for HIM - and a Fruitcake Cookie for ME - we drove the truck down to the meadow to cut up some wood for our campfire tonight.
While Louis Dean worked on the extension cords for the chain saw......I went off exploring.
I love ALL barbwire wreaths!!
The meadow is one of my very favorite places down here on the ranch.
I walked back up to the camper to make some sandwiches and took pictures all the way.
Our camper is up there in the distance.
I love looking at all the things down here on the place.
When I returned with our picnic lunch, Louis Dean was still working on the extension cords to make his chain saw work.
He knew how much I wanted a fire tonight and he made it happen!
It is so beautiful out here......
the birds and the trees and the beauty of the country.....
on my way back to the camper, I stopped at the chicken coop.......
and these are what I gathered!
Louis Dean meant to make ham and eggs for our supper tonight.....
but instead we opted to eat the leftovers we found in the fridge!!
When we added wine - well, it made a perfect meal!
I sent this pic to my sister, Deanie, this afternoon.
She will be visiting us on the ranch for the very first time tomorrow!
Only Nita and Mike have been here when they visited us last fall.
I do so love our country camper!!!
One by one we are adding visitors.
Guess who our next visitor - after Deanie -will be?
Kailey!!! That little girl called us on Face Time all by herself!!
We ended up with a great conversation with all four of the quads plus Amber.
My heart just melted when Kailey said, "MeeMaw, are you in your camper??? You are so far away! I love you, MeeMaw!" *sigh* I said, "MeeMaw will be home soon!" And so I will!!!
While I love being out here where life is so simple.....
and we get to watch people working the land....
we will be going home soon.
We so admire Dean and Sherry and how they have worked hard to make their dream of country living come true.
We are grateful they share this life with us!
I brought down a heavy bag of blue jeans........
and turned them into stacks of denim squares from which I will sew them into hand crafted quilts.
and it just gets better!!
The moon is up and we are celebrating a country evening!!
The meadow this morning at the ranch.......
The Neighbor Feeding His Cows this afternoon......
No pics of the lovely time we had sitting by the fire and watching the stars.....
Louis Dean got cold and wanted to com inside the warm camper!
Closing out our night with disc 5 of Season 2 of LOST!
We hope to finish the season before we leave so we may be up late tonight!
