I don't know who said it but I've heard the adage that one day in the country is worth a year in the city. I've longed to live in the country for as long as I can remember and now that I do, I love taking advantage of the country roads and scenery. When I started out on errands today I decided to take the backroads and clear my mind of the decisions and responsibilites that have consumed me this past month. Those things have not gone away, nor will they, but driving down country roads was a wonderful way to lessen the burdens of life for a few minutes. When I saw the draft horse scratching his head on an old tree, I slowed the car, backed up, and stopped in order to take his photo. Isn't he a beauty? The other photos are just simple country scenes I passed on my way into town to do some banking, mail a letter, and then head to my former home to continue the process for selling it. I might need to drive down country roads again tomorrow.
P.S. I just found the adage on Pinterest - I hadn't even searched for it. Serendipity! I had the adage wrong - it's a MONTH in town. Oh well. Here it is. The link took me to the Primitive Pond.
