|My neighbor's red pickup truck (photo 2009?)|
It is a CD I came across while cleaning out Christopher's closet... one I forgot I even owned... a music CD which accompanied a Wilderness Family video long ago. It plays the sounds of acoustic guitar music and is quite peaceful... although what it has to do with wilderness is beyond me.
I have lived in a city surrounded by millions of people and while an interesting place to live for a couple of years, my heart belongs to the country. I miss the forest sounds in the quietness that comes with snowfall on winter mornings. The earliest signs of spring around here each year is when one awakens to the sound of bird songs... lovely... and the occasional noise of a car badly needing a new exhaust system on the county road... but such is life.
This morning I drove the mini-van (which Stephanie and her hubby gave us) on the scenic route into town... watching as farms and cornfields passed by the window... well, technically I was passing them! It is still a new feel for me to drive so I was going a little slower than usual but realizing how much fun it was to sit higher than in the Buick.
Then I remembered how my "dream car" has always been a really big red pickup truck. So... here I was driving down country roads really high up in my big red minivan. I had to laugh when I thought of it... the homeschool mom emeritus version of the big red pickup? :)
Speaking of said daughter, she has a lovely new blog post (am I the least bit biased?)... here.
