So.. I'm pretty sure that Microsoft came here to take pictures for their screen backgrounds.

Don't you think?

I actually think it's pretty, pretty out here in the country.

The hubby works in the garden and I take the pictures. Again, a great partnership.

Here's a field of wheat in our backyard

And here is the view I can see from my window while I do the dishes....Actually, I haven't done the dishes for a while. I gave my husband dishes duty until he took me on a date. That was about 2 months ago and he's still doing the dishes. Hee hee hee. Try it ladies! It's wonderful!

I don't know why, but everytime I look out the window, (at this view pictured above,) I start singing, "Home, home on the range. Where the deer and the antelope play. Where seldom is heard, a discouraging word. And the skies are not cloudy all day."

Do you know that I just barely understood one of the lines of that song correctly? All growing up, I thought that the song meant, you shouldn't say the word "seldom" because it is a discouraging word. I think it was just because of the phrasing. It was like I was singing it, "Where 'seldom' is heard, as a discouraging word...." But now I finally get it. It means that seldom do you hear a discouraging word. Right? C'mon, haven't you ever sang a song incorrectly?

My cowboy was once singing Whitney Houston's "The Greatest Love of All" and he sang, "No matter what they take from me, they can't take away my LIBERTY!" in front of a group of us and everyone started laughing. Or you know that song that goes, "Don't go chasing waterfalls..." Well, my friend sang it, "Don't go Jason, what if all.." :) Funny huh?

Anyway, this fall, when the grain fields are ready to be harvested, I already know that I won't be able to get the song by Sting out of my head. "As we walk in fields of gold....You'll remember me, when the west wind moves. Upon the fields of barley. You can tell the sun, in his jealous sky, when we walked in fields of gold." Is it stuck in your head now?

(I actually had to look up the lyrics to this song, and guess what. I've been singing "You can tell the sun, in it's yellow sky.." ALL THESE YEARS! Yep, just found out it's "jealous." How bout that?)

(I know this was a totally random post, but that's just the way I am sometimes.) :)


  1. Oh gosh! I need to come and visit badly! My camera wants to go to work in the worst way. It's GORGEOUS!

  2. Wow; the top two pictures DO look alike! As a child my sister sang the song I Am a Child of God: "he's given me an earthy home with parents kind-of dear" rather than "kind AND dear." I still think of that when I sing that song.

  3. Anyone is welcome anytime! lol. It is really pretty up here. The spring was we are in the middle of July and it's getting hot and dry. August is pretty when the harvest - fields of gold.
    Michelle- so funny about that song. That made me laugh.
