The Twelfth Night has passed and today, in order to complete this post, I was forced to open my gift to myself…photos from the season.
Well, that is not even my last gift…I have yet to open most of my Christmas Cards—a punishment from the guilt I feel for not sending cards for the second year in a row…Cards are my favorite gift..especially when they arrive like my Christmas In The Country partner’s did.
Let me take you back to that day…
The Rural Route Mail Lady waddled up my sidewalk trying to balance six or seven packages and open our screen porch door. I met her with hopeful girls hanging on my legs…”are the gifts for us?” I deposited the packages with a quick glance at the addresses and my heart skipped…
Could my secret partner really be her?
This post to my secret farm wife hideaway on the Internet
Followed by this:
So are you wondering who was the “RockStar” by whom my family was graced?
Non other than the World Famous Matriarch of THE ZCREW! The Zeorian Harvesting Crew documents their travels in the High Plains Journal (A publication all farmers and ranchers must subscribe to if they are really farmers and ranchers—P.S. Bossman placed an ad for a cat loader..buy it please. P.S.S. I failed that question in my animal science class at KSTATE.. High Plains Journal–what does that have to do with Dodge City and Kansas..isnt’ Kansas on the Prairie? What are Plains? My city girl ignorance…)
Ok, Back To Tracy: She has a heart of Gold..I enjoyed reading her blog posts @ Nebraska Wheatie about harvest…her love of Nature, Photography, Family and Ag melted by heart. AKA I cried…her handwritten note in my Christmas Card related to my miscarriage and how she expected my children to be underfoot while opening a package, she explained why she choose each gift…oh,I am hopeful to meet her in person soon!
Ok, those kids who are usually underfoot..are painting in the carpeted living room…so I am off to join in the fun!
One last Merry Christmas,
