Before I start, I wanted to say how much fun it was yesterday while we were playing What Do You Want To See. :) Thankyou also to those new folks that posted comments...I always appreciate hearing from everyone. It seems like the more folks I visit and get to know on their journals, the longer their comments from me get, its a lot of fun I must admit.
Traci, where I lived, we had SO many trees on a little yard in a neighborhood. I loved the trees, hated when Fall came. Leaves in the gutters, leaves everywhere to rake. I had to rake periodically because if I waited for them ALL to fall, it would be next to impossible to push them along into a pile if they were to get wet...layer after layer of wet heavy leaves. It was just no fun.
With that said, you sound just like my Mama, lol, she wants to know when we are planting trees too. We will, when we can get the time and money, but they will be evergreen trees like Leyland Cypress. I really like those. If there are to be any leafy trees, they will be planted FAR away from the house. I dont ever want to rake leaves again. Not my idea of fun.
Ian wants to plant some fruit trees, which would be nice. He is wanting to also see about planting olive trees, and press our own olive oil.
This morning I had to go get our mail from the post office. Ian didnt have time to put the mailbox up yesterday afternoon so he will have to do it today after work, or tomorrow. There is talk of him working tomorrow since he will have to be off all of next weekend so we can help Brian move into his new house. I am so happy for him that he has his very own house now. I will make sure to take the camera and take lots of pictures.
Anyway, I went up there to get the mail. Mrs. Robinson was there. I dont think she felt to well. She had a tissue over her nose while she talked. I don't think she felt much like being there. Guess it is good for her that Saturdays are short days at the post office. She is the wife of the man that came out to buy all those Silver Phoenix roos I had and then I ended up buyingBonnie and Clyde from him while he was here. He wheels and deals in animals all the time over in Collinsville at the Trade Day on Saturdays. I loved that place, I need to go back there soon.
I keep drifting off from my subject! LOL
So she gave me the mail that they had bundled up from Wednesday through Friday. I asked if I could get todays, or if it had already gone out could they save it and put it in with Mondays mail. I was expecting prescriptions and didnt want to miss them. She said they hadnt gone through todays mail to be sent out yet but she would hold it.
I went out to the truck to leave and as I got in two ladies came out the back door rolling bins of mail. They recognized me...isnt that something. They knew about the mailbox and said they had a package for me this morning. They just knew me, by looks, isnt that something. So she got the package out and handed it to me. I told them thankyou so much as I had been waiting for these prescriptions and needed them right away.
I know they probably have a total of 500 addresses to deliver to, and its like anything, you just get used to the places and people you go out to, but it was still pretty cool.
Mrs. Moates stopped by on my way out and wanted some eggs. Her and her husband live at the end of Doc Moates Road not too far from here. The road was named after their family as you could probably see. She had a bag of ground corn for me, just a small bag, but still, it was nice. They were testing out their new corn grinder and Mr. Moates said to her why not take the chickens some. I was already in the truck headed out, but I will stop in at their house later and drop off the eggs for them.
There is nothing like living out here...nothing. It cant compare to anything I have ever experienced. The people, the places, the whole area...I just feel so blessed to be a part of it out here. In some way or another, eventually everybody is connected out here. I love that.
