One of the perks of rural Kansas living is...
Enjoying Grilled Rack of Lamb, right here in our home, and minus the $$ price tag, thanks to the ranchers down the road. They know we Armstrongs love lamb, and whenever they have an extra, they thoughtfully give us a call.
Another perk, at least this month, is the plethora of home garden tomatoes we are consuming. Home-grown tomatoes are really tasty, and very healthy. I think they are mentally healthy. Nothing better than a really nice tomato, picked and eaten, right then and there, in the garden. Why do you think the hornworms and grasshoppers do it?
And finally, the lavender. When we venture out of the air conditioning and into the swelter that is known as rural Kansas in our front yard, we can smell...lavender. Amazing, refreshing lavender. Our front yard smells so, so much better than those air fresheners that tout "lavender".
