Lifestyle Forecast: that's country

Recently, I have been accused of becoming a country girl. I do like living in the country (and I do spend a few days involved what might be called country activities), but I like the city too. However, since I'm living in the country at the moment, I thought I'd do a forecast on what to do when you're in the country.

Monday, August 8:

"For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; he adorns the humble with salvation."
Psalm 149:4 (ESV)

Tuesday, August 9:

Go camping with family members or friends. It doesn't have to be tent camping (I know sleeping on the ground can be cold and hard and very uncomfortable). Rent an RV, stay at a campground that has cabins, or even stay in a hotel near the woods (it's a stretch, but hey, I'm not here to judge your camping methods). I'm going on a trip with my grandmother and brother this week. We're going down to Yellowstone and staying in hotels and resorts along the way. (She calls it camping, I don't.) However, if you are outdoor camping, don't forget the S'mores!

Wednesday, August 10:

Ride horses. There's usually a place not too far out of town where you can take trail rides through the woods and very tame horses. If you own horses, this will be very easy. Some friends of mine from the church here in Idaho have horses and I went riding with them this morning down at the fairgrounds' arena. It was a lot of fun, even though I fell off when one of the horses went too fast for me. (FYI: always wear a helmet, you never know.)We're going again next week!

Thursday, August 11:

Go berry picking!! There's always farms that sell their berries by the pound if you come pick them. Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, huckleberries, you name it. They're usually pretty cheap and fresh berries are just so much better than the frozen ones or the ones you buy at the grocery store. I went huckleberry picking on Saturday with some friends and although I got eaten alive because we went at night, it was a lot of fun and I had fresh huckleberries on my cereal this morning. YUM.

Friday, August 12:
