"Cowboy Take Me Away"

I am NOT a farm girl in the true sense. My Dad made it very clear early in my life that my farm skills were lacking, not that I minded. I was more than happy to stay inside and play piano, though I did like pushing the bales off the end of the truck and watching them roll away.

I am a farm girl in that I experienced the ups and downs of farm life, though not as acutely as some of my friends. The BSE crisis had an effect on my family, although small, and periods of drought sapped the energy of us and our small farming community.

But I am a real farm girl in the sense that I am at my most relaxed and quietest when at home on the farm; everything seems to slow down. There is something calming about looking out the window of our small farmhouse and seeing the big expanse of sky. It’s wonderful.

I had plans to do a lot of reading and get a good head start on some of my essays this week, but I already know it won’t happen. After a year of university without any summer break, I am starting to get tired of school. I’m going to have to push myself to get things done, but I’ll somehow do it; my sense of pride is too strong.

One of the best parts about coming home is getting to see Sadie! Last night I created her own Facebook page! We already spent some quality time together this afternoon. We had a nap on the living room couch. Mom is working tonight, so she’ll probably sleep with me. I really wish I could have Sadie in the city!
Now it’s time to sit back, relax, and watch a little curling!
