Simple Country Life

There are so many benefits to living in the country.  You are surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature.  The peace and quiet of chirping birds, deer in the meadows, the beautiful vistas of the sky.

Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere; and sometimes in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself.  Author Unknown


I can’t get enough of dirt roads and simple things.  Author Unknown


It is the simple things of life that make living worthwhile, the sweet fundamental things such as love and duty, work and rest, living close to nature.  Laura Ingalls Wilder


Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.  Ernest Hemingway


I wonder who once lived in this house.  They must have worked hard, raised their family, laughed and loved.


I seldom see a windmill here in the Southeast U.S.  When I lived in the Western part of the U.S. windmills were everywhere.  Windmills make me think of the years gone by, a simpler time in life, my grandparents era.


As we ventured down a little country dirt road – we found this little goat  enjoying the hay with two horses.  The horse on the right, with it’s half opened, sleepy eye has a look of total contentment.


I always think of John Denver’s song – “Country Roads”, take me home, to the place where I belong . . .
