I have lived 99% of my life “in the country.” The only time I lived in town was when I attended SDSU and for a few months after I graduated from college.
I like the peacefulness and quite that rural living offers. I like the freedom and space.
Sometimes, it would be nice to live a little closer to town. Mostly on nights when I don’t feel like cooking. J and I joke about running out to get a quick bite or calling delivery.
I am not a big one for convenience or luxury type items. I never had a dishwasher until I went to college. My Mom and Sister still don’t. I have been without my dishwasher for a week and a half.
I have to admit, I like the convenience and luxury of a dishwasher. Currently all I see are dishes to be washed and/or dishes to be put away. It’s a never-ending cycle.
Earlier this week I was reminded about the importance of friends, laughter and sharing. Simple and fun conversations with co-workers is good for the soul. So is a trip to the beauty shop.
I am thankful for the simple joys I have been blessed with.
