Ok, so I’m not really out in the boondocks. But I’m definitely not living in the city. You drive past a lot of fields and farms to get to my house. I wake up and have goats, cattle and corn (or wheat depending on the season) to the North, and cattle to the East, West & South of me. I literally have goats and calves in my front & backyard. For a while I had a goat in my backyard, too. It was always my dream to be able to live in a house one day where I could wake up, look out my window and see the sunrise just beyond the corn. And my dream has come true! I didn’t really account for all of the flies, spiders & rodents that came with the territory of living in the country…but I do get beautiful sunrises and sunsets every day.
Because of the previously mentioned bugs & rodents, I often take country living for granted. The view is now my norm and I forget that not everyone has the blessing of living in wide open spaces. It’s quiet and peaceful out where I live. And although I have days where I wish that I were closer to civilization (mostly a mall and Starbucks), I do love living out here.
I figured that in today’s blog post I would share a few pictures of some of the things I see when I walk outside my house. Enjoy a piece of ranch life!
