Around The Globe My Life

County Life

Green acres is the place for me.

Farm livin’ is the life for me.

Land spreadin’ out so far and wide.

Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.

Oh how I enjoy the country life… Being able to go out in the evening and pick vegies from the garden and then come in and make fresh salsa. Or to watch the deer and the fawns come out and romp in the back yard. Sit here and listen to the owls hoot at night and all the insects. It’s so pretty and calm. The air is so fresh.

I really don’t want to go back to that damn little apartment. It’s so confining and so depressing. I don’t see how people do it! I wish I could buy my parents place.

Today I met Bill for breakfast and had a good time at the Machine Shed, then went to Living history farms. That was fun. Was supoesd to call Justin Jenks but his phones not working. I’m pretty pissed about that because I really wanted to hang out with him today! Grr.

Went to VWM as well and shopped there. Then went out to Big Creek/Saylorville and did some off roading with mom’s truck. 😉 Was fun!

Came home and went swimming and hot tubbing then made salsa with fresh tomatos and hot peppers from the garden. It’s so yummy!

Going to the fair at 9am tomorrow. Going to be a long day.

Oh yeah baby!! Thats one main reason I don’t move to a big city. Gotta love here in Waterloo, Iowa and surrounding areas.


LOL I have actually eaten at the Machine Shed. They had great peach pie and cinnamon ice cream. YUM!

It was a long time ago. I think I was 13 or 14. Dad had business at the Rick Island Arsenal and we actually drove all the way over there just to have dinner. Cute place, and yeah, very country. Good food too and like I said, great peach pie and cinnamon ice cream. I love the midwest.
