Where I stayed
With Aunt Karen and Uncle Doug
Karen and Doug were at the UK game when we first got here so we got to spend some time with cousin Doug, whose wife is visiting family in Florida. With no pressing marital obligations, Doug was able to take some time and show us around the dusky surroundings. He took us along the back road to where he will be building his house in the future and it is beautiful there. Fields and trees and mountains, you couldn't ask for much more than that! Next, we went and ate at a local Mexican restaurant where Tracy and I imbibed. A margarita a piece - mine slushy goodness and Tracy's on the rocks. I can't recall when the last time I was that tipsy in public but since neither of us were driving there was no harm done
Sunday morning we took our time getting up and just hung out with Karen, sipped a bit of coffee and discussed everything in the world. John and I picked up a book that discusses some of the most common questions people have about Peace Corps service. John took a bit of time to read it aloud to us which brought up several interesting discussions. Uncle Doug later joined us and we spent the morning in uproarious laughter as everyone picked on everyone else.
We then headed down to check out their new barn, which is beautiful
When I was younger I never could have imagined living in the country. As I was just standing there listening to nature an amazing calmness came over me and I realized what a great life it could be!
