Childhood Memories: The Journals

Sara has written since childhood. She laughed, as she looked at the Snoopy tattered cover with pink paper. These were the original manuscripts in her childlike handwriting with pictures. She had not forgotten the homemade, priceless cards she wrote in hopes of lightening the mood, making someone happy.
They brighten the heart of her Mother’s broken heart. The cards seem to calm her angry stricken Dad, during those iced cold, egg shell moments when he was home.
A flash of past memories lost, but never forgotten. Stored in the Her special treasure box. Holding the box tightly she began to have flashbacks
Sara grew up in The Dark House. Sparked conversations in the middle of the night. Dad coming home drunk were always explosive. Many times leading to arguments, fights, then eventually him creeping into her room at night. Supposedly, in search of the Bathroom.
It hurt to the core of her heart to have the past revisit in glimpses. Taking a deep breath, she took courage, remembering God’s protection; His Love, Grace and Mercy.
Sara found comfort in Journaling while Stargazing. The many conversations and time spent rationalizing within herself. Then talking God.
Pressing through the tears, with radiant hope soaring within her heart and the many encouraging words hemmed within.
Sara made a decision that the time was Now. She couldn’t wait another day. In an instant, she to blew the dust off the Journals, loosen those apron strings and did what brought her so much joy. The words began to overflow from within, pouring out just as the Sunset and smile brightly.

🍓 Great Country Farms: 🍓 Strawberries and More

Great Country Farms we finally arrived. The two parking lot attendants, wore yellow vest with smiles were so bright. They directed us to the weeded grassy parking lot. You could tell by the number of cars already there people arrived prior to them opening at 9:00 A.M.

We could see lots of people in the Strawberry Patch. After getting out of the car a Tractor pulling a four wagons filled with people passed us taking more people across the rocky road trail to the other side of the street. A lot people began running, some walking up the road, crossing the street hurriedly, even a few with Baby Strollers, in hopes of getting strawberries before they were Out

The prices to enter were quite reasonable. They even offer Family Memberships, and Military Discounts. They advertise specials on Groupon. It seem as though they strive to make the experience of being on a farm and picking your own produce affordable for Everyone

While we standing in line to obtain Admission Bracelets was a treat. We were captivated by Freshly cooked Strawberry Pancakes aroma feeling the air. The dock like doors, were opened wide, the smell engulfed your thoughts sending signals of hunger, for a taste.

The Great Country Farms Store reminded of a small town Farm Store with Speciality Items. They offered Strawberry Theme Items for purchase. There was Strawberry Jam, Jelly, Wine, Soda, Kettle Corn, Lollipops, and Chocolate.

Homemade Cookies and fresh Hot Apple Cider Donuts, which melted in your mouth and were so delicious. My daughters devoured their Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies to be the best ever.

They also carried Fresh Farm Eggs, along with a few Meats other local Farmers.

Strawberry Time

Boarding the rear tarp covered wagon, pulled by the Yellow Tractor was so exciting. We settled into the wooden sits with much anticipation. The ride was bumpy filled with much laughter, and conversations with strangers brought together by a family time.

The Sun seem to smile as we all seem to embrace the beauty of nature. The young children giggled, so contagiously. When the Strawberry Field was insight, they began jumping up and down! The Ten Minute ride seem to last for only seconds, we had arrived.

The Sun was blazing hot, as each of us exited the Wagons. Grabbing Green Baskets and Flat Box Crates, we all headed in different directions to cover the Strawberry Field Radius.

There was a slight breeze, helped a lot, to keep our bodies cool as we gleaned the field.

They offer so much more then Fruit Picking, there is all day fun for everyone. Great Country Farms is Family Friendly place.

Foggy Bottom, Bluemont Virginia

Splashes of Cotton can be Seen,

Looking out, I see nature Untouched

Lovely homes, acres of Land

The smell of Strawberry Pancakes, cooking filled the Air
so intoxicating, stomach Grumbles
No way, it’s time to hit the Fields

A Rain Forest In The House

There is a Rainforest in my House
The trickling of the water, is not so Soothing, not it very Amusing
The steady stream of Water reminds me of a never ending Waterfall
Niagara Falls….Not at All
I’m seeking the positive in this situation and thankful for ears to Hear
The Plumber will arrive between 8 A.M. and 5 P.M., but at least he’s coming.
The sound is embedded in my head, as I slept last night. It caused my mind too wonderful as drifted off to sleep.
I was on an Island Excursion, walking on the Beach hand and hand, feet in the sand. My daughters say I was smiling as they awaken me….Poof.
Reality Set In….the battle of the Leaky Rainforest
The stream is flowing faster, the force is harder and faster.
We just may need Sail A Boat it is Raining outside Too.
The yellow valve on the Hot Heater is turned of and water is still the Rain Forest Stream the second floor with Hot Water.
Making the best of this situation we have a Sauna Too
Put in the stopper a Hot Water Jacuzzi
Making the Most of our Rain Forest

Mother’s Day with My Best Girls

My two Best Girls are my Precious Daughters. I love them very much. They have grown up to be fine Young Ladies!

On yesterday they chauffeured me to Downtown DC for an extravagant afternoon for entertainment and dining.

We were pampered on every level at The Hamilton. The brunch was everything.

From Fresh Cooked Omelettes, Breakfast Foods, Country Potatoes, Fresh Cooked Greens, Cajun Rice, Brisket, Chicken, Salads, Fruit and many German Desserts and Breads, plus much more.

The show was great too! It was wonderful to see such diversity in families out celebrating together. The positive energy filled the room.

Most importantly it is always a joy to hang out with my two Princess 👑 .

Republic Day Celebration

Happy Republic Day to India 🇮🇳.

This is a very exciting and festive celebration. Military parades are held in New Delhi and the state capitals. Representatives of the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force and traditional dance troupes take part in the parades.

Republic Day is a public holiday. It is a day off for the general population, and schools and most businesses are closed.

Republic Day is celebrated on January 26 each year. However, India became independent of the United Kingdom on August 15, 1947.

India’s constitution came into force on January 26, 1950, completing the country’s transition toward becoming an independent republic.
