I often wonder if people that live here take the view and beauty for granted. When you see something everyday its easy to never really see it after a while. We do our best to remind each other to look at it as if it's the first time, new.
|The drive in was amazing as usual.|
|Getting closer, even more amazing.|
|When you visit the hardware store, this is the view from the parking lot|
We had some light hail last night and a good soaking rain. I was pleased, all the seed I spread around will get a fighting chance, especially considering the winds that were raging today. As usual I managed to get just a little too much sun but I don't like wearing shirts anymore when I'm running, especially when they feel like parachutes in the 30 mph gusts. It was a shorter run than normal but I made myself get out there and do it and since I didn't die I'll consider it a success. The usual headwind both directions at those gust speeds was awful.
Rock had a great time hiking around and swimming in his favorite holes. The creeks have a few deep spots, this one being the deepest and there are brookies for him to paw at and get excited about.
|Splash-Splash, taking a pittie bath!|
Bobcats, coyotes, deer, elk, turkeys and a whole lot of birds. We saw one of the cats (typhoid) but haven't seen rabies in a few weeks. With any luck she moved on to a better woodshed, but it's not the first time she has vanished for a while.
|Birds abound and everything is green and amazing.|
The laundry is almost finished and all of the other chores are done. I just got back in from hiking a few miles with my backpack, only a little breeze out in the plains. The Amish neighbors down the road a bit have a new baby horse but it didn't want to visit me. Further down the road there is fresh construction, there are about 4 new places within 5 miles and there is a big field for sale with water rights 1 mile down. I haven't priced it out but I'm sure it will sell no matter the price, it's buying and moving season.
I spied down the road further and a fellow bloggers property and we might be just a little jealous of the view they will have from any window.
