Trip to Property

This is the back field of our 10 acres in Fairfield County; we've got to take the Gravely tractor up and mow before we loose it all to the woods again. We drove back in since we had the pick-up truck as it's too overgrown to really walk in at the moment. About where I took this picture Scott scared a batch of Bobwhite Quail. They were so cute; wish I could have gotten their photo to show you all.

Since we were out that way we decided to drive up and check on a friend that we haven't heard from in awhile but she wasn't home. Hopefully she will call us soon and let us know she is OK. The drive was gorgeous...

I wish that our fields were this well maintained but living about an hours drive from our land makes it hard to keep it this beautiful. Hopefully within a couple more years we will be up there and able to stay on top of it - unless we sell it all and move somewhere else. We've learned that no matter what - life throws you curves and you just have to roll with it.

On the way back we were getting hungry and decided to stop at Five Guys for burgers. This one is located in The Village at Sandhills ... UGH!!! What a mess traffic wise! Then we got inside the music was so loud I couldn't hear what the cashier/order taker was saying and the other cashier/order taker kept hollering out his orders to the kitchen crew... UGH! Needless to say we were so happy to LEAVE that place. If you LOVE shopping I'm sure you'd love The Village at Sandhills but we hate shopping in places like that so have decided we will never return unless forced to at gun point. We stopped at Target - a LOT less stressful and more low key - right up our alley. We bought Scott a new outfit and some other things that we buy only from Target. All in all we've had a wonderful "goof off" day!


  1. I love that first picture. I would be perfectly happy having a house on that property! A pretty drive, too.
    Five Guys are soooooo good but yes, sometimes the music can be too loud and I think that must be a thing with them. The one we used to go to in Cary, NC was the same way. But the burgers and fries are wonderful. :)

  2. Beautiful Property!
    I can so see a lovely little cottage type home there..
