Happy Friday everyone..
Hope you are all having an awesome day..
We woke up to a simply beautiful morning..
Terry decided he needed to take some stuff out to the farm so of course if he goes then I want to go along too..
The closest route for us to get there has been closed all Winter due to the fixing of one of the bridges..
Today, my darling husband thinks perhaps we should take a short cut that people with four wheel drives are taking..
It has been raining here all week and I kindly pointed this fact out to him..
I don't know about your husbands but mine thinks that he knows best when it comes to such things... (rolled eyes) ..
Hey, he can probably save a few bucks worth of gas.. right?
This is what the GOOD part of the road looked like..
Did I mention that we were also hauling a loaded trailer?
Now.. one of my most unfavored things to do is ride old muddy back roads even on good days.. The day after heavy rainfall makes it an even more unfavored thing for me to want to do..sigh..
I again KINDLY point out that it would no doubt cost a lot more to get the whole thing hauled out of there then to go a few extra miles..
Oh my... He says he has it all under control...
We go about a mile then he decides to get out and see what it is like ahead a bit..
I am in the truck calling on the Lord to get us out of there..
He gets back in and with my eyes tightly closed and calling on heaven he goes a ways further..
Wisdom came down and he gets out and unloads and unhooks the trailer and pulls it out of the way by hand..
Oh man.. I hope I don't have to call 911 way back here..
Does my phone even work?
Oh Lord help us...
Did I mention that the road is very narrow with mud on both sides?
Well, thank the good Lord we get turned around and the trailer rehooked and finally get out of there..
All thanks to the grace of God..
GUESS WHAT THIS DEAR MAN SAYS TO ME AS WE TURN ONTO THE PAVED ROAD???
"I hope you never talk me into doing something like that again!!"
Yup... that is what I am married to... grin..
Oh well... Life goes on... eh!
We arrive at the farm without hardly even any mud on the truck...
The trees are beginning to get their leaves..
We had stopped at the store and picked up a few things for me to make lunch with..
Tomato and Bacon Buns...
Nothing fancy but good..
Beautiful skies today...
The old apple tree is slowly starting to bud..
And the lilacs are greening up..
Choke Cherries are budding, too.
After everything is unloaded Terry went back to the brook to look for fiddleheads..
They are a wonderful wild fern that grows here along the brooks and rivers.. They taste something like asparagus only better..
I cleaned up and took a wee walk and we head home again..
Such a quiet and peaceful place ...
Only the birds singing and the wind blowing...
Thank you dear ladies for your sweet visit..
I hope you find this a bit entertaining.. smile..
All is well that ends well, eh?
Take care, dear hearts..
Looking forward to reading all your little notes that you leave me..
May the Lord bless and keep you...
