Simple Ramblings From A Prim Cottage

King of the Hill

This is the road I should live on..smile... Well the farm auction was no fun I left after about a half hour.It was HOT well over 100 degrees,there was only like 5 things I wanted and the auction service they used were not the brightest people.They were painstakingly slow and with the heat you'd figure they would want to move along.Normally at auction box lots are done by the row buyers choice.Well this service was auctioning 1 box at a time and showing each item in the box.So I told hubby I wanted to go.We did enjoy the country ride.We then went to fleamarket and lunch...It was close to our friends house so I stopped to visit these sweetie's along the way.....

You know who the king of this hill is right..

Love their plank set up.It even has a rope pull troley to send food over from the road.There is a big river down below..How cute is this baby?

Fleamarket was unbearable hot and the people that were out were just plain rude and trying to get something for nothing.I started feeling exhaustion from the heat so we closed down early.I think today is the first day I've felt ok since.The Heat Wave finally broke last night it's still hot but not 100+ and they dropped the warnings.We decided to not do fleamarket this sunday and just take a break. With dad and some other things going on I've been a little out of sorts.I just need a day or two of idle time. No schedules or rushing..Just sitting and enjoying a conversation with family and sweet tea under the shade tree...Playing carefree with the girls...Reading..Some good comfort food...Snuggling the fur babies..Going for a walk on the trails..Just taking time to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life..It will surely all be waiting after my break..smile...I went to my friend Kathy's prim shop looking for something for a blog friend,she was sold out but I did find a few small things.She was setting up her fall and halloween displays she is a little expensive but always has the neastest stuff.I'll tell you I'm so ready for the crisp fall days.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Don't blame you a bit for taking some time off -- this heat can really zap you and it's best to slow down and enjoy the season.... Cute street sign..... and super-cute goats!
Have a happy day.....

Hi Amy sometimes life has it way of telling us to slow down and when we don't listen it makes you. The heat has been so bad for many of us. I am sorry that the auction didn't work out well for you. Beautiful pictures of the goats. Take it easy my friend and pour a glass of that sweet tea for me too lol
Peace and Blessings
Cheryl...Snatch JOY~!

Those goats are adorable! I love their little ramps! Bet they keep the lawn mowed too! lol! It's sounds like you have the right idea Amy to slow waaaaaaay down and sip some cool refreshing tea. It doesn't take much with the heat the way it's been to take it's toll on us.
Here's to looking forward to some nice cool fall weather!

Too bad you didn't have some tools with you. That sign would be perfect in your garden! Maybe you will have to make one......
It has been too hot for me to go to auctions, too. I have been so busy running my family to dr. appts. that I can't seem to catch up.
I love the goats---so cute.
You know things are going to happen as they will whether you are there or not. Just take it easy. Heat exhaustion is not good for anyone!
I'm off tomorrow for 2 full days of running my brother around; sleeping over at my sisters to save time and money. Columbia, MO is a good 4 hour drive, each way.
And, the tomatoes are finally ripening in multiples. I will be canning next week!
Keep hydrated, Stay cool!
Still praying for your Dad!

Hi Amy,
Yes, I think you need a well deserved break from the rat race, enjoy every minute of it sweetie!

Those goats are so cute, made me miss mine for a minute!

Sorry about the auction and market, just to dang hot for much of anything..

I still haven't been to an auction~ something tells me, it's a GOOD thing! LOL! I'd probably get in big trouble!
Those goats are sure sweet, I like them. I hope you just enjoy a little break, I know I'd like one myself.
If it's not one thing, it's another.
The heat is taking a toll on everyone I think, I hope it does cool off a tad.
Take care sweetie and just be.
sis Renee

Hi, Amy ~ those goats are so cute. I've been to auctions like that and always end up leaving, auctioneers are not supposed to be that slow. I sure hope it cools down for you so you feel better.

Hi Amy, bummer the auction was a bust but glad to hear that the that has broke. It was ungodly HOT here too but now it's raining and cool! Still don't get your posts on my sidebar...only get a few of the ones from the blogs I follow! Enjoy some time off & have a glass of sweet tea for me! ~Kriss~
