I’m officially A “Country Girl”

What a gorgeous day it was again today! We took a long drive and then a walk through the woods. We stopped along the way and got close up to a group of cows that were being fed apples! They were so cute & soft. I got several "kisses" from one very sweet one named "Daisy" ~ that's her in the middle #44


After that, we drove along the road and came upon a couple of gentlemen digging up potatoes. They had a huge basket full, so I just had to stop and ask them if I could buy a couple. Wayne's always told me that there is nothing better than a baked potato fresh from the ground. Of course, the men would not hear of us actually paying, so they gave us as many as I could carry in my hands and then we were off again. I have those potatoes in the oven right now and I can smell them. I can't wait to taste them. I got some shredded cheese to go on top and then we'll have some split-pea and ham soup to balance out our dinner. Country cooking 101 ~ Katie would be proud {and you know who you are Katie}. Hee hee ~ who says you can't turn a suburban girl into a country girl over night ~ I beg to differ.

But before I go, I just have to share this awesome meadow at the top of the mountain ~ right up from where the cows live:


Is it gorgeous, or what! I'm never going back to Louisiana, Never!

I hope you are having a super week so far ~ I'll be posting some new work this week, so please check out the shop when you get a chance. Thanks for reading my ramblings......

Xxoo & peace always ~ Kathy

    I'm so happy that you finally are settling in. Here's to a wonderful (cold, snowfilled) winter.
