As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I hung out with the BF and his dad at their family farm this weekend. It was a much needed escape from everyday life and stress.
The house isn't lived in except for when BF's dad goes out there a couple times a month...so the food is quite lacking.
|Bedroom upstairs...yep that's the nightstand ;-)|
And the idea of a meal with the BF and his dad is ordering pizza. ((Thank goodness I asked for veggies on the pizza!!))
(Raise your hand if your seasonal allergies have come back full swing!!)
I got some fruit, since I know it is lacking at the farm (even when we had lunch at the grandparents' house on Sunday).
|The extend of fruit was homemade grandma jelly and craisin cookies (SO GOOD!!)|

I had to get back to the farmhouse to study for my nutrition quiz (due that night) since my life has been taken over by Chemistry lately.
|I thought it was funny I was eating a banana and there was one in the book.|
You see, the farm house is really old and wasn't in use for decades until a few years back, BF's dad decided to gut it and fix it up. It is still a work in progress and one of the things in the works is sealing up the house so bugs won't get in.
Therefore the faint buzzing and tapping of the bugs hitting the windows (over and over) was the background music to my studies all afternoon. I finally finished my studying and my quizes (we get 3 attempts...don't judge..they are tough quizes!!) at 11:57 which is fitting as the quiz is due at midnight.
We saw a huge "burn pile" basically where farmers take dead wood and other trash items that they plan to just burn. I am pretty sure some of them sit around for years.

It is so refreshing and peaceful. Even though my allergies were killing me by the time we left, I still made it a point to take in the beautiful views as we traveled home.
|Grabbed these as my snack on the way home with a banana. Our dinner was fast food...all we can do is try to be semi-healthy right?|
I have a feeling one of the farm pictures from this post will be going on my laptop background. *sigh*
Maybe I should just convince the BF to be a farmer and I will be a farmer's wife and work at the hospital as a dietician. And blog about being a farmer's wife. Sounds good eh?
We will see what God has in store for us...but I may or may not be praying for the farm life the next couple of weeks!
Back to the real world! ((Which means Chemistry..ekkk!)) Have a good Monday, friends!
