On Sunday, after having a relaxing weekend and recuperating from our week; We took a drive out to Midlothian,TX...about 1 hour West of where we live.
I didn't have my camera out while heading West...but on the way back I took these pictures. Can you see those HUGE WHITE THINGS?
No the ones in the fields... They are COTTON BALES.
That warms my heart. Seeing those cotton bales. The heart of American industry. Made in the U.S.A. HOME GROWN COTTON! What's not to love about that?
It was nice to see and to get out of the house for a bit and drive.
We went to pick up our Venison.
The freezer is full and stocked. Bow season is just finishing up and so we may be getting more when gun season opens up too. We'll see. We have an arrangement.
The Honey has a friend that hunts-- he's single and can't eat all that he shoots but loves to hunt. Honey can no longer hunt-- So what he doesn't give to his family-- he lets us have, after paying for processing. Pretty good deal for us really; since a the price of actually going hunting is just not something we can do right now.
I love the scenery...even though it's flat as far as the eye can see. It just Makes me glad to be American!
On another note...here it is October and our Crepe Myrtle is blooming for a 3rd time this year!
Isn't it pretty?
Thou will keep him perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee;
because he trusts in Thee.
~ Isaiah 26:3
