Green Acres

Farm living may not be the life for me, but I love to get out in the clean, country air, away from the busy city life whenever I can. I’m a little bit country, but mostly a city girl.

barnhorsesI love animals, especially when someone else takes care of them and cleans up. They are wonderful, but a lot of work and responsibility!

Saving my money so I can go shopping for vegan shoes and Jean has found some great vegan restaurants for us to dine in style.

It came in white and gray, but I couldn’t decide so I bought one of each! 😉  Actually, I do that often when I like something, I buy it in two or more colours. I must’ve learned that from my mom and I notice my daughter sometimes does that, too! I wore the gray top to the Scottish Highland Games.

Have a great weekend and get out for a country drive if you can!

  3. Always great to visit the country side. Cities are artificial places created by man. I love your photos, which reminded me that I have not been near horses for a long time. Great outfit especially the skirt. Sara

      Thanks, Suzanne!

      Yes, we are always minutes away from the countryside in all directions! Day trips are fun and we will be doing a couple of day trips this weekend.

      We’ll be going to NYC next month.

      Have a great weekend!!

  6. Lovely farm–especially since it looks like the kind of place where animals would like to live! I also buy the same thing in different colors. I must have learned it from you. If I like the fit and style of something, it’s good to grab a couple. I’m mapping out our NY shopping routes right now! See you soon!

    Hi Carmen, I have returned from my vacation and my first visit, it is, for your blog. We seem a little, we are city kids, but we like the field, but we find it difficult to live in it. I love your outfit, with the lace at the neckline, and the skirt is gorgeous. You look beautiful. I loved your post about Scottish games.
