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
