country beauty...

Alright, so I'm a huge sucker for not only homemade doughnuts, and cinnamon rolls, but also sunsets! When Matthew and I were first married he worked at a dairy farm, milking nights, as well as his sawmill/woodworking shop, at that time we didn't have all our farm critters! I had a part time job. But anyways he would be at the barn, and I would sit outside or take a nice long walk down our quiet, country road, forcing myself not to jump every time I heard a peeper or cricket. I grew up in a small town, but in town, and listened to 18 wheelers and jake brakes slowing as they flew down the hill to a stop, not the crickets and wind blowing through the hay fields. I would torture my husband as I would keep the radio on for some "noise" at night. I wasn't used to the peaceful, quietness of  country living. I now cherish the quiet, and peacefulness of the country. I have the pleasure of open areas and the view is spectacular! So I have over the many years sat and watched and taken many pictures of what I call my sunsets! I never tire of seeing them either. The sky lights up as if on fire as the sun settles down below the mountains and another long day comes to an end. OK so I'm not always sitting and enjoying them, sometimes we are out and about doing farm work or garden stuff... !
That said I have a couple pictures of my sunset the other night, and wanted to share them with ya'll! These were taken about 10 minutes apart. Just to show the difference 10 minutes can make!

Enjoy, and thanks for stopping our plot of land we call home!
