But who's counting.

It is always fun when the doorbell rings and you are brought a pie from the friendly neighbors across the street.

Which incidentally, the pie was almost scarfed down by the two dogs that wouldn't stop jumping up and reaching for it.

Mental note: they are not so well behaved as I had previously thought .

The weather today calls for snow. This makes me think... Would I have been an ideal pioneer woman? Or live on a farm? The answer to that is , if it weren't for animals in the house, and if I am equipped with proper weather gear, then YES!

I feel at home in the tame, with a hint of wild, un-city life. I guess, rural is in my nature. I find peace looking out into fields of nothingness. I like to wake up to quiet.

...and I like to answer the doorbell with smiling kids at the door.
