On a Sunday afternoon one of our favorite things to do is ride the dirt roads with the dogs in the back of the truck and the windows down listening to the 70's on the radio.
I realize I have already told you that once before.
But today we crossed by the fields of yellow.....
across the pastures..
through the pine thicket
and came out at our little piece of paradise...
"Our" sandbar at the River...
It makes our hearts beat calmer, our breathing relaxed, stress levels go down...
The dogs are happy.......we are happy.
Then we play a little "Redneck Golf".....we see who comes closest to hitting it across the river.
I never win...:(
Now it's time to leave our little paradise and go home...
This is what we do...:)
I know to some people this is very boring but to my husband and I it is some great, quality time spent together.
We talk about everything.....no phone interruptions, no t.v., no internet....just us.
On the way out we passed by hundreds of these....
Do you know what these are called........Cypress Knees.
A cypress knee is a term used in the biology of trees to describe the distinctive structures forming above the roots of a cypress tree of any of various species of the subfamily Taxodioideae. Their function is unknown, but they are generally seen on trees grown in swamps. Some scientists have thought they may help in oxygenation to the tree's roots or assist in anchoring the tree in the soft, muddy soil.
People sell them..
I could be rich!.....lol.....but I wouldn't sell them.
And one last photo.....on our way out.
I thought this was a cool shot....it looks hazy but that is how high the river got up a few days ago....you can see the line on the trees where the water stopped.
I thought it would make a cool abstract photo.
Anyway....this is our life....I warned you in the title of my blog.....not extraordinary....just...
My Ordinary Country Life!
But I wouldn't have it any other way.
