We do what my parents always did also. We get on the way back township roads and just drive around looking at all the beautiful scenery and farmhouses. If you have never been, the Amish around there have a distinct way they build their homes. The flowers are always beautiful and full and vibrant around their houses and gardens. Mom and I always say we are going to stop and ask what their secret is one of these days. Horse manure tea??
Emergency break to go find Blacky. Thank goodness he was found because it would have been my fault. I put him out in his yard cage this morning and the one end had come loose somehow and he escaped through that! For a second, I thought the neighborhood red tailed hawk had had a rabbit brunch. Close call!
Here is what my spice cupboard looks like now with all the new herbs and spices. You DO know that you should replace them every once in a while, right? Look at the prices!!!!!
By the time we were heading down the back roads slowly making our way home, I had grown tired of the fussing and fighting, so I let them play on their dsi's. I know, I know... sing songs, play games... blah blah blah. Well, I HAD been doing that for the past two days. Selfish me just wanted to enjoy the time I had left looking and talking to Jason. So, out came the dsi's. The only thing we had when I was a kid were books. Although Ruth does take a backpack full of books EVERYWHERE she goes. The seriously funny thing about the first picture is that Ruth is too busy playing on her dsi to realize that there are horses RIGHT OUTSIDE her window! If you know Ruth, she is crazy about horses. Then, once they realized the horses were there, they were using their dsi's to take pictures of the horses.
