I experience some real joys from living in the country.
In the early morning, I can sit on my front porch in the solitude of nature. I enjoy the sights and sounds of the world coming awake, from the buzzing of the hummingbirds to the babbling of the nearby brook. Often a momma deer and her newborn will come to the creek to drink or nibble on nearby foliage.
Truly, for me, the one downside is the limited quantity and quality of internet service in our area. Our internet is supplied by satellite and I suppose that is better than none. But when 10 family members converged on our homestead the first of the month our internet data allotment slipped away faster than ice cream melting on a hot Tennessee afternoon! Our little 11-month old great-grandson Elijah was the only one who didn’t sport a data-devouring device!
I share this information simply to say … I haven’t had enough data to blog and share some of our fun summer recipes! This morning I got up at ‘O dark hundred and beat back the data gremlins to write for a few minutes!
