    That's the best way to loan money, don't expect it back. You may be pleasantly surprised by some, but at least you won't be disappointed or angered by the others.

Oh, how I love the smell of cow...

Saturday, April 09, 2011

...patties on a dark misty spring morning! Today was the first day, due to temperature, or rain, or my schedule, that I was able to walk/run outside. It felt great! It was early this morning, 50 degrees, very foggy, and pitch black. There are no street lights in the country. I carry 2 flashlights, but that only lights the road directly at my feet. Actually I like it that way. I can't see the hills to mentally dread their arrival. I depend on my legs to tell me when I am going up or down hill. By that time, it's ok, I'm in a zone. In the complete blackness, the other senses are heightened. There was foggy mist in the air that felt refreshing on my face. I could hear the buzz of electricity as I passed each pole. And an occasional bird. The roosters were not up yet. And I actually like the smell of the cows. Makes me appreciate my country roots. When I am in the car, driving this route, with the kids talking, or the radio on, and the windows up, I miss all of this. It makes me more aware and appreciative of the smallest things...like cow sh*t.

    My parents have a farm, and I know what you're talking about. I was driving my convertable the other day with my son and his friend in it. His friend mentioned how he couldn't believe all the smells from my car. lol

I never realized how you can get the outdoor smells with the convertible....probably why I like it so much !!

    emoticon I HAD to read your blog with a title like that! emoticon

Oh my! I even hesitate to WALK at night, because it seems I'm always tripping over things. I can't even imagine running at night! Then again, I can trip over my own two feet or twist an ankle in broad daylight, so I have to be careful.

It's great that you can do it, and that you enjoy the experience, even the *fragrances*!

    ...I believe that's cow manure, lol.

I thought your blog was going to be about gardening - but I like the direction you took! I never thought walking in the dark was good - but your blog paints a wondrous picture in my mind's eye!

Great Blog!!

Hugs from another country girl,
