Sweet Summertime

ranch horsesIt’s the time of year I like best… tall prairie grasses, bending in the breeze, meadowlarks trilling from the fenceposts, fresh peas from the garden, long walks beneath summer clouds. Ice cold garden tea and front-porch settin’. Oh boy, I could get used to this weather fast! :)

I told my husband a few days ago that I think this is what Heaven feels like; this perfect temperature – not hot and not cold. Just perfect. It makes up for the brutal winters. It really does.
I think that’s the first time I said that without also adding ‘almost’. because I truly believe it now. (don’t ask me in January tho. I may have forgotten! 😉 )country roads

We recently were on vacation to Maryland, and while it is a beautiful state, the humidity really got to me. And the hemmed in feeling. I was so happy to see our wide-open prairies again! :) I am spoiled. I feel so blessed to live in this wide open space. I know it’s not everyone’s choice, but wow! God sure knew what He was doin’ when He parked us here. clouds in wyoming

    Someday I’m gonna live in the wide open spaces, Lord willing. Lancaster country PA is pretty crowded and stifling sometimes.

    I love those perfect summer days too, and yes, they make enduring the winters worth it. I so wish our last move was west. We moved from Holmes county Ohio to NY. Here in western NY I feel like we live in a fish bowl. And it is humid! I noticed people seem to be friendlier the further west you go to. So did your move go well? Will there be pictures? *smile*

    just wandering through the internet and came across this site via ranch and riata site
    wonderful pictures
    we live in southeast saskatchewan, it gets flatter than wyoming and no trees but you really can see , supposedly it makes for good sailors , the distance to the horizon doesn’t bother
    if i knew how or could figure out how i would toss a picture in
    also have great weakness for cheesecake, especially chocolate
