I was told by the dish network guy--and he assured me he knew everything about living out here in the boon-sticks!--that Scottsbloom used to be used by Scottish women who migrated to the Northwest for brooms... figures, I mean you know, it could be it got the name from, oh I don't know.... a bakery? I suppose it may have made a great plant for that. I even toyed with looking at how to make brooms and selling them to rich Microsoft and Amazon employees.... I might still. I'll Google it later. *grin*
Some things I like about living in the sticks "so far from civilization" (um, really? I still can get my Amazon Prime and I can still make it to the city in under 45 minutes).
- The quiet solitude.
- Listening to the birds begin their morning song.
- The crunch of pine needles as I tramp in the yard and "nature area".
- The way the dew looks like sprinkles of pixie dust on wild flowers in the morning sunshine (I don't have my camera always with me I need to try to capture this!).
- Walking outside in PJ's at 9 pm or 8 am, its all the same!
- Sun Tea. Its tastes better in the country.
- The hiss of the sprinkler and the buzz of the bees.
