Texas

Road tripping
Across Texas
Looking out
The window
Counting my blessings
Every mile
A treasured souvenir
I didn't buy
Highways end
Leading to
Dusty country roads
The mooing cows
Are my musical accompaniment
The goats soon follow suit
And now I feel at home
Even when I'm not
From Dallas
To Austin
And back
The privilege
Of having a home
Leaves
Me
Crying
Tears of joy

  32. Employ crop rotation techniques in your organic garden. Typically thought of for large-scale farms, crop rotation can be useful even in a small garden plot. satta king

  38. Oops. I exited too fast. I'll try again! This couldn't be better timed. I'm visiting Dallas this week for a few days. I don't think I'll see much of the country or cows (I wish, though) but it's a good sneak preview to get me more excited!

  39. No matter where you're traveling, make sure to wear sunscreen. Even if the sun isn't shining, your exposed skin is still subject to the sun's harmful rays. Wearing 15+ SPF sunscreen will ensure that you don't get a painful sunburn and that your trip can be fun without the pain.

  41. A surprising part of a weight-loss plan is sleep. If you are trying to lose pounds, be sure you are getting enough sleep (ideally, 8 hours a night). Studies have shown that people who chronically sleep less than they should have higher levels of hormones that increase hunger.

  42. Make them relevant and inform your customers and fans about things they would be interested in. Don't just make a post without having a purpose. Your customers already have enough information coming to them, so make your posts relevant so they stand out.

  43. Ever since my husband got me divorced for the past 2 years, i v'e not been my self. I was reviewing some post of how i could get back my husband then, i saw a testimony shared by Marina Choas from SWEDEN about a spell caster named Dr. tunde. I contacted Marina Chaos to confirm about how Dr. tunde helped her and she clarified everything to me of how he helped her and that gave me the courage to get in touch with Dr. tunde for help. Dr. tunde assured me that my days of sorrows will be over within 48hours after he has finished with his work. I followed his instructions he gave to me because i had the believe, faith, hope and trust in him. Verily i say to you today that i and my husband are back together and i can proudly say and testify to the world of what Dr. tunde did for me. Contact him today via E-mail:(babatundesolutioncentre1@gmail.com) OR call him or whatsapp him +2348143581382 if you seek his help.
