The photos I’ve chosen for this post all represent life in my town and home at the moment. It is harvest time for the corn. I will miss the smell of the corn fields as I drive by. It is a great smell and one I find equally comforting and intoxicating. As I watched the planes fly in formation at this past weekend airport day in my town I turned around to watch traffic go by on Route 50. At one point there were three combines traveling westbound heading to more fields to harvest. When you purchase a home or property in my county you have to sign paperwork stating you understand you are moving to farm country with its noises and smells. I think nothing of pulling to the side of the road to let the combines pass but friends who visit question what I’m doing. I’ve always wanted to drive a combine. It’s on my bucket list.
I included one of the streets where I walk dogs and travel most every day. It’s one of my favorites. I love the architecture and there is a church that has the best sayings on its sign. Sometimes there are quotes by Rumi, Mother Teresa, Buddha, Helen Keller and sometimes the bible. I enjoy my towns open spaces, quaint streets and proximity to major cities, DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia. It is a good town for walking. I currently live on the outskirts of toke but enjoy it immensely. I’m curious to see what NYC thinks about my little town.
The bookcase photo I included is actually the first thing you see when you open my front door. Books are a huge part of my life. I was excited to purchase fourteen this past weekend for $21.00. All but two were hardcovers and the last two were Agatha Christie mysteries. And just to close out with a little silliness I love the esurance candy crush commercial. I laugh every time and I really like the geico auctioneers make bad grocery store clerks commercial.
