A country girl’s life

As some of you know if you follow my blog, I’m a country girl. I love living in the country. As a child I played in the woods, corn fields, cow pasture, and mud puddles to my little heart’s delight. I’m raising my son to enjoy and respect the same countryside that I love. Now he fishes and hunts, not to mention plays in the mud and catches frogs. It’s just a wonderful life.

Take for instance this morning. We woke to a gorgeous sunny morning here in Georgia, which here lately is a wondrous sight. After a cup of coffee and toast we headed out to cut limbs out of our trees to allow the sun and breeze to blow easily through. But not before we watched Luke Bryan in all his gorgeousness hunting on a program my husband watches. 

Then it was time to weed the garden and pick the tomatoes. I gathered the ones in the bowl on the counter with the new ones. Yep, you guessed it. I canned them. Maybe you’re saying but wouldn’t it be easier to buy them already canned in the store. Well, yeah, but nothings better than in the dead of winter pulling out your frozen goods from the summer garden. It’s using God’s bounty that he generously provides us.  

I did take time to clean the house some. Now I’m propped on pillows in the bed with the sun streaming through the windows. We are actually getting what I call a true summer rain shower. It’s still sun shining as the rain gently falls. I have my laptop and now it’s time to get to work. 

The birds are singing outside the window and playing in the rose bushes. It would be a moment of quiet solitude if my son wasn’t two bedrooms up playing his drums and my husband is in the den watching the last Harry Potter. But it’s still peaceful in my country home.

As for the rest of the day, it will be committed to hours of working on my current manuscript. I’m excited. I worked last night until almost midnight. I would have worked longer, but my eyes were telling me it’s time to shut it down. Although my brain was still working as I tried to go to sleep. 

Hope your Saturday is a pleasant one. Take a little time to listen to the birds sing and watch a couple of clouds silently pass through the blue skies.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Sunday evening…

As I sit here on my patio working on my latest work in progress I can here the birds singing happily, the pool filter humming, the mosquitos buzzing around my head and then the whisper of a late evening breeze through the tres.

My weekend has been a busy one. We spent yesterday at my husbands sister’s place on a lake about an hour and a half from home. It was really nice to just sit around talking and eating. We got in the water for a while and rode in the boat. We just rested.

Then today after Church my mom picked up our son so he could spend the week at her lake house. Now it’s lonely. It’s amazing how lonely you feel when your child is not around. Normally on a summer evening he’s in the pool or riding the four wheeler back and forth, but this evening it’s just quiet. 

I became inspired this afternoon as a short summer storm came through to finish the historical romance that I started last summer. It’s based in the Georgia and it’s spans the pre civil war period and beyond. I’m really excited to get into it. I love history, always have. If there’s a historical place anywhere I want to see it. My husband just laughs at me, but he still gets dragged to where ever. 

I hope to start the cover tommorow. You may be saying why start the cover when you haven’t finished the book, well, I have it pictured in my mind and while it’s fresh I have to jump on it.

As for now, I hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoy the last few hours of Sunday, for tomorrow is Monday 😦

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
