Off The Farm for A Day

Today was a day spent off the farm. Or at least we were off the farm in between AM and PM chores.

Allen headed off to have lunch with a long time friend and I headed to the city for some shopping. 

I lived and worked in the city for several years prior to returning to a farm life.  And after moving here I commuted to the city every weekday for the first five years.

Now the city is a chaotic and startling place to visit. It's great to go there once in awhile, it's almost a treat really,  but I've certainly lost touch with how to live there.

Being in the city for any length of time gives me great appreciation for country life.
