So, after we've moved to the country, what's different?
It's so quiet! The only cars we hear are the few that pass down our road. The only other sound is the wind through the trees....oh, and occasionally the neighbor doing some skeet-shooting.
Instead of sitting on my back porch reading, I sit on my back porch and think. Deep thoughts: Why did the female duck lay an egg in the middle of the pasture where everyone can step on it? Does my cat seriously think he's a match for the goat? How does one get red clay stains out of a goat? How much manure does a horse produce?* What does one actually DO with manure?**
