Small Town Traffic and Sights on Country Road
Rained last night
the temperature at present very cool
It is delightful to me and well aware heat will start returning tomorrow.
One of the joys of living in a rural area use to be not having much traffic on the road
Not the case lately as the roads were filled with vehicles on my trip to town yesterday morning..
I wondered "where have all the people come from and where are they going in such a hurry?"
It seems I am accomplishing less lately.
Use to be on the road for the town trips by 8:00, and now it is later.
As I hurry to leave my cottage and finally get on the road
I wonder why am I always in a hurry?
In past years I thought if I was on time for an appointment that I was late.
Always arrived 15 minutes early.
Now it seems I hurry and arrive just on time and with my mindset - I think I am late.
To do list was not completed and will try and leave at my early time one morning.
Did manage stop at one small market, purchased truck license, post office, fuel in truck and bank stop.
Returning home and down my country road the sides of the road are filled with Queen Ann's Lace - have tried growing them in my garden
for years with no success. May try again....
For long stretches the wild orange lilies are lovelier then ever.
Came across a turtle in the middle of the road and stopped to take his picture thinking of his
He sure was dirty - looked like he had been in mud hole.
I am having thoughts of not cutting grass as you come down my gravel driveway or on the road in front of my property. Want to encourage the wild flowers to grow. I know that was my intention when I moved back to the country and seems I just started cutting and grooming and now it looks
like the city and I do not like it.
A new country eating place has opened on the winding road and the scent of the wood and the meat cooking over the coals is so enticing.
It lured me to stop and inspect their menu
Rarely eat like this at present time but sometime might pick up a plate of tenderloin to go.
I was told they grate the cabbage. That is a plus from me as I remember my mother's slaw
and how she would grate the cabbage and chop other ingredients to put in it. Lately I cannot
hold part of the cabbage to grate but she did in 80 plus years. I do not think many people do
Special friends that read my sharing and my children and grandchildren - peaceful weekend wishes are sent out to you from one who lives at
the edge of the wood...
Images did not download in the order I wanted them too
but will not mess of this post redoing it :)
