Thursday Thirteen-Country Life

Thirteen things I love about living in the country:

1. No neighbors.

2. Wide open space for playing and exploring.

3. No noise other than the occasional moo.


4. Cows. (Except for that certain smell right before the barn is cleaned out.)


5. Watching my guys work.


6. Watching crops grow.


7. The smells-fresh grass, rain, that sweet smell of corn pollinating, the musty barn smell.


8. Gator rides.
9. Being able to tell the kids to play outside without worry.

10. Never knowing what kind of critter you might run into.


11. Planting season.


12. Harvest season.


13. The big, blue sky.

I think I would love #9 the most. But I like them all :)

Bren said...

Beautiful! While we don't farm we have plans hopefully to someday move out further into the country. All that and you still have a Starbucks! Yeah!

Emily said...

I am totally a city girl, but when I see photos like that it does make me a nostalgic for the country! oh, and Jack pees outside in the suburbs anyways! lol

Kristen said...

What a wonderful life you have. Great list!

Lula! said...

Yes. I agree with every one of them. Whenever I get an itch for having Target closer than 45 minutes, or complain about having to drive 30+ miles to dine at a decent restaurant, I glance outside my door...at the mountains surrounding us...at our lack of neighbors...all all the wildlife...at my girls on the back of our 4-wheeler...and I remember.

Country living is where it's at. Amen!

Martha said...

Great pics, love Cole's booty shot and Miss Claire with the bubbles.
I am such a City gal but this makes me long for Green Acres. Thanks, JDM.

Auntie Q said...

Noah just told me we're meeting you at Tractor Town to play today. HUH? Where does he come up with this stuff?
Great post. Beautiful pics. But you can keep the country. Too much for me to handle out there!

Lauren said...

Neighbors do not hinder my children from running around naked!

Becky @ Our Sweet Peas said...

Gorgeous pics! I want a farm!

sassy stephanie said...

Amen sister. Love the country. Except for those days when it feels a little lonely. But love it most of the time.

Tammy Lessick said...

Great pictures. Hi from the SITStahood.

SmartPumpkin'sMom said...

Even though I am a city girl, I wish my neighbors didn't sit on top of me. Just love the picture of the sky! And I wish I could tell my child to go out there and have fun without worries.

how beautiful!

i live in a subdivision where my son STILL insists it's ok to drop his pants and go wherever he likes.

dood1ebugs said...

I loved the pics. I live out in the country too and LOVE IT!

What an awesome thing you've got going there!!!! ♥♥♥

Carrie77 said...

I just love the cloud picture! How perfect. All the pictures are great though.

Kat said...

Your pictures are just gorgeous!! I should do a post like this. About the cool things you get from living in the 'burbs. Like traffic. And 5 walmarts within 5 miles...

Tiffany said...

Great pictures! I like #1 :)

We live in Nebraska so I can relate. Not on a farm, but there is something serene about being able to find wide open spaces and just think and enjoy. I can't get down with the cows though - except maybe the baby ones at the fair :)

ShaRhonda said...

I live in the city now, but I do love going back home especially to my aunt and uncle's dairy farm, thanks for this post!

Val said...

First let me say I love your blog. I have been sucked in and can't get out :)

Now, number 1 pic is the reason why we need to move to the country. I have a child who enjoys nothing more than to get naked for the neighbors. And I am sure they are tired of watching him pull his pants down to pee on the garden :)

Mrs Parks said...

I love John Deere Boy's Buffet pants!!

Always a Southern Girl said...

What a great list. We moved to the country when I was 11. Before that we lived in the Suburbs. So I have to say. I really love the Burbs better, but the country certainly does have great advantages.

I live in the Burbs now too, and we get some interesting wild life too. We had a wild baby bunny running around our living room a couple of weeks ago.

Have a great weekend.

confessionsofacountrygirl said...

And those photo's right there make me miss living in the country! Have an AWESOME weekend!

Farmchick said...

Hey I like all of those things too! Hope you weekend is sweet.

pam said...

I love your country pictures. You def. live a beautiful surroundings. I especially like that the kids can go out without worry:)

Becky said...

Number 14: The awesome pictures you can take!

...love Maegan said...

there is at least one day a month where I want to move out of LA and into the country ...this post is glorious!

Mrs4444 said...

Terrific shots. I especially love the wheat ones. That is wheat, right? :) Happy Summer to you!

meandtheblueskies said...

Wow. You must really like the country. I prefer an urban setting myself but the big old sky is beautiful. Stopping by from SITS. My one year anniversary ends real soon so if you get a chance, stop by and grab an entry before it's over.

Rebecca said...

Seriously.......I wish I had country living! It looks like a great place to raise your family!

Z's Mom said...

I live in the suburbs.....but I'd definitely chose the country over the city. You're very blessed! And I love cows....I don't know why....I just do!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

That looks like pure bliss!

Mama Mel said...

Hi from SITS! I love this! I have always wanted to live on a farm and have lots of animals, especially cows (my favorite)! I strongly dislike my noisy neighbors over here, and wish I could move somewhere where my nearest neighbor is a mile away or more... Love the pictures! :)
