I got spurs that jingle jangle jingle....



I woke up this mornin'. Put on the kettle for coffee. GROUND the coffee beans with my BARE HANDS. Made pancakes WITH homemade cinnamon apples. AND fed the cattle (dogs..but same diff)

I am like the pioneer wo-man of the century! Not only that but I also have about 45 mosquito bites. UGH! The rugged life. There's not even a starbucks within like, 50 miles or more! Who knew I could be so rugged? I might even try hiking the Appalachian Trail next week! (have you even heard of the AT?...that's what we outdoorsy folks call it...I didn't think so.)

I even showered in "mineral" water yesterday. I feel like there should be award medals for stuff like this. Maybe I'll publish a journal about my time here on the mountain. Make people AWARE that the rest of the country doesn't just LIVE like us. That some people don't even HAVE a gym to go to. SOME people dont' even HAVE treadmills and need to walk on hills just to exercise!!

Makes you 'preciate your freedoms now, don't it!

And THAT? my friends, countrymen, is what the 4th of July is ALL ABOUT! So on today, the 5th of July, let's NOT forget to 'preciate our vast freedoms, that hillbillies just don't have.

Amen.

Was that your morning or Maw Ingalls'?

seriously? said...

OMG...do these people not know you at all? Are they really your friends or are they secretly trying to kidnap you and hold you and your darling doggies for ransom? That is the only explanation I can think of...

Wow, I never suspected a yoga instructor could have been a mountain girl. Nice work!

We Appalachian folk have freedoms. Freedom from showers, oral hygiene, etc.

dede said...

amen! thanks for the awareness! How many more days of country life are you going to endure???

Kris said...

You're alive! You survived!

When I think of cabins, I don't think of bugs...instead I think of rabid, carnivorous serial killers with scary masks and chain saws.

So I am very glad to hear you survived!

What am I reading here? A description of your lover's getaway for two? Who is your "partner"?

And why haven't you logged into Facebook? I sit on the computer for hours, aimlessly waiting for you to heed my call. But no call is heeded.

Oh, and I am TOTALLY bringing Madonna's rubber band bracelets back. Kind of like the way Justin brought sexy back, only way better. And probably sexier.

Except that they aren't really bracelets, but the rubber band for my hair.

That's still sexy, though, right?

And since this is becoming the longest commnet in the history of man, or blogging, I guess, why don't you show us any love with the following? What are the qualifications to become one of your peeps?

Is there some secret handshake that I don't know about?

Yours in commenting and blogging
