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!

My Chief Starbucks-loving husband and I had an appointment about an hour away from our home.  Since we were leaving early in the morning, I knew it meant a stop at the Starbucks down the road. [Side note: I don’t drink coffee.  I have never drunk coffee.  I like to cook and bake with coffee granules but do not care to drink it.  For me, Starbucks is a clean bathroom on the way to wherever we are going or coming from!]

On this particular day, I came out of the bathroom andThe Chief was still in line.  I wandered over and as he ordered I said to the Barista, “what do you have that isn’t coffee based?”  She immediately, “OH!  You must try the Caramel Apple Spice.  Caramel. Apple. Spice. What’s not to like?   At this point, I did something that is pretty uncharacteristic for me.  I just said “okay.”  I didn’t ask how much$. I didn’t look for calorie count (mistake) I just said “okay.”
