Today (a definition)

To-day (adv.): 1. a quiet rise with children fast asleep; 2. joining Husband on the porch to bask in the already 55 degree am sunshine with our personal preference of caffeine; 3. jumping in my workout clothes and hitting up the trail for a five mile jaunt by the water; 4. returning home to two happy children and a Husband tending to the garden; 5. Husband sending a message to me via my five year old to say, "you wont be a country girl unless you get off the computer!"; 6. work, work, work in the yard; 7. witnessing a mass tadpole population growing in our upper pond; 8. farmers tans; 9. an afternoon drink on the shady porch with Husband and talking about our good friends and how blessed we are; 10. anticipating another full house of visitors this evening so we can celebrate the sunshine BBQ-style.

Now, I'm considering what sweet treat I could make to top off this perfect day?  Any suggestions?

How are you spending your weekend?

xx, Cassie

What a lovely day country girl!! Your family & their peacefulness always make me smile! You always tempt me to pick up & move to our farm...with EVERY visit here :)

That BBQ is calling my name!!! :)

What a wonderful day! I love this post. You've inspired me to be a country girl today, even if I live in the city.

Sounds so lovely. It is raining here and may turn to snow tonight, so I am so enjoying the photo you choose. Perfect. I just discovered Pinterest and I am on my way to play right now. Can't take the computer from this country girl!

Jen-pinterest...are you sucked in yet???!

How peaceful, this is what life is supposed to be. Reading this post was like watching a tv episode of an imaginary program called the peaceful perfect life.

that sounds like an absolutely sweet day! what did you end up making? days out in the country always make me want some sort of fruit treat - cobblers, crisps, and pies!

Sounds wonderful! Tell everyone hello!

Afternoon drink on a shady porch is my idea of the perfect summer day!

a visit from me would be a sweet treat :)

#5 is crackin' me up! Love it!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
