Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itAnother great nights sleep so peaceful and dark here in the country thats why we love it here. One nice thing we enjoy wake up in the morning have to look out the window to figure out where we are. At 5 am was a comfortable 68 F and then suddenly the rain came down very heavy for quite a while. Hmm our plan was to go to the Keady Farmer's Market/ Livestock Market only about 15 minutes away, only on Tuesday's here in the summer. Uncle Clare was coming to the market with and came out to see us at 8:30, the rain had let up. Supposed to rain later though. So off we go, got to the market by 9 am parked close and no rain. That's a good thing though a few puddles around.
We wandered around checked a few things here and there lots of fresh produce, meats, toys, baked goods you name it a good selection. And we supported this market quite nicely.

That was our fun day here at the market and visiting family, out here in a great country setting on the farm. We heading on down the road again in the morning, newer places and old faces, don't want to wear out our welcome here.
