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.
