fARm LiVIn' iS tHe LiFE fOR mE!

Funny how normal things can go unnoticed day after day and then one morning, as you're standing in front of the kitchen sink (in the world's ugliest kitchen by the way)washing dishes by hand because the dishwasher is hooked up totally wrong and could possibly start a fire if it is used (along with the wiring in most of the house), before taking the first of several loads of laundry out to on the clothes line in the back yard (which by the way is made out of the drive shafts of 2 old trucks) because the gas man hasn't been here to hook up the gas line and the clothes dryer is still in the box . . . then you get a mental picture of hubby riding through the back pasture last night on his new to him tractor (which I have put into the same category as the kitchen - world's ugliest)with a big old smile on his face .... Well if you're me, you'll start humming the theme song to Green Acres. Then you'll start laughing hysterically because the hound dog puppy and the doxie are sitting there side by side on the kitchen floor staring at you like you've gone completely over the edge.

As I'm typing this, the neighbor's Jack Russel Terrier is frantically scratching at the back door, which means a storm is coming . . . oops! I mean a storm is here. I guess that means the laundry on the line will be going through a second rinse cycle mountain style. Oh well . . . .

GOODBYE CITY LIFE!

Blessings Y'all!

It is my firm belief, and I believe that I'm correct on this, that rain water kills germs and is a natural softener and could even cure the common cold when allowed to do the "second rinse" of clothes on the line. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. Blessings, Marlene

Ha! I had Green Acres on my mind as I visited your blog then laughed to read you were humming that tune. Life is fun wherever you are if you make it.

Enjoy!
