Gone Country

I consider myself a country girl at heart.

A country girl that happens to live in a city. A country girl that flies on airplanes more than any person should be subjected to. A country girl that wears business clothes and has a phone glued to her ear.

But still a country girl at heart.

Jim and I went back home for a week in September and enjoyed every second of it. It was my first time home in 2 1/2 years but in a way I felt like I'd never left. Everything there is right. Everything fits and makes sense. Everything is simple.

Simple needs. Simple pleasures. Perfect.

Well except for ticks. I have not missed the ticks.

Incidently, I am the only one who walked in the fields and managed to get into seed ticks.

It's probably true that I spent more time in the fields than everyone else. I couldn't help it. I kept getting drawn to those simple things I used to take for granted.

Like cows.

God help me, I've missed cows.

The way they liesurely stroll and eat without a care in the world.

The way they playfully scuffle.

The way they make funny faces.

Cows have a fantastic sense of humor.


Thanks funny tongue cow. Thanks for reminding me about the simple things.
