We take care of the land...it takes care of us.

We're just a couple of country dwellers......

Ya just never know what I'll blog about next...

So visit us often!

Time For Some Christmas Caffeine?

The Holidays can be exhausting!

The decorating has been 
a two week long process
(I'm still not finished)

all the goodies I want to make
will take another week....

the gift list keeps getting longer
and the weather is getting worse....

Christmas is near and I need 
a boost!!


time for a shot of espresso
and a big ol' sweet doughnut!

 have no fear...
the ladies at Sweet Grass
will pour me a cup of Joe,
 and treat my sweet tooth!

I'll sit in one of their 
exhilarating comfy chairs
and check my list...

Hmmm....cookies, pies, treats to go!

Gift certificates for all of my coffee-lovin peeps!


Now I can sit back
and relax....

enjoy some holiday time 
with loved ones...

Maybe I'll even get some beans
for at home...


I'll brew a cup of cheer
while I decorate 
one more tree!!

 Thanks for the boost ladies!
Your shop is just what
this Christmas lover needed!!

It's been too long!!

The Sall's had to break down
and get a new computer...

something that was
NOT on my 
Christmas to-do list!

What a disaster to have your computer
go down in the middle of three different 
photo jobs!
Over 1500 photos to save and edit 
and no COMPUTER!!


Such a trivial problem 
as I sit here and watch the news...

My heart and prayers 
go out to the grief-stricken families
in Newtown, Connecticut.

Such an UN-imaginable tragedy!

Impossible to feel their pain,
no words can express enough sympathy!

I hope this community can gather together
and begin a healing process...

they will never forget,
they will always remember these innocent victims...

May all of our tears turn into love and support...

My time has been consumed lately with a different 
computer and windows 8 (ugh!)
but, it looks like things are returning to normal at least!
Today I am grateful for normal!
Hug your family today and let 
them know how much
you love them!

Hugs from the country,
