We just had an opportunity to travel to our other farm/ranch in Abilene Texas. It had been two years since we had visited our place. It was heaven to me, I love to go because all my responsibilities and cares stay here and I can experience the simple life. We have a little travel trailer parked on it and we just sit outside beside a nice little fire and enjoy the solitude .
Since the Mesquite trees had not budded out yet, I noticed the abundance of mistletoe. I so love it. Just the thought of all the mistletoe naturally hanging over my head is ever so romantic. I had watched an early morning news report some months ago about the shortage of mistletoe this season. Most of the mistletoe is harvested in Texas and with the huge drought harvesting was down. So sad, think of all the kisses lost. Why do we wait for Christmas to hang mistletoe over the doorways in order to steal a kiss from our sweeties? What if we always had mistletoe over the doorways. Kissing every time we crossed the threshold!! Awesome!! Yes, I am an older mature lady that is totally head over heels in love with My Fellow of 32 years of marriage. Maybe we can just pretend to have mistletoe over the threshold......
Its so strange how blogging can open your eyes to ever so much more. I have always been a country girl and enjoyed nature. I always laugh about some certain city folks that talk about taking care of the environment (land) as if its a new idea, my folks have been doing that forever. Most country folks are one with nature and we naturally work with and respect our land. But now I not only see nature I try to share it. It's like having a child and seeing life through their eyes. (a major thing I love about blogging). Even if its just a little wild flower, it becomes so interesting and important.
