The first 2 weeks…

How do I encapsulate the first two weeks’ time here? Good food. Absolute quiet. Lots of grass. Lots of bugs. Me — cooking! Bela in her element.

(*note: the flowered item in the photo below = A WATERMELON!)

Lots of things are different here. People pay with CHECKS. They state what county they’re from, not what ‘city’. They invite you to church. (Okay – they urge you to go to church…) There is a serious lack of sidewalks. Doors are left unlocked. Dogs don’t take walks (they hang in their backyards). The local hamburger joint doesn’t need a gimmick; that is where people are going for their burgers, period. You know your chickens. Literally.


These came from a friend’s coop. Never seen such a bright orange yolk in my life. And the taste? Quite different from the ones in the store.

With time on my side, I’ve been able to wander a lot.


And Bela? Well, she’s getting along just swimmingly…
