Its been so gray around here for the last couple of days. It was nice to have a day off and go for a walk in the sunshine. The farm looks so strange with the corn cut down. I could see a yellow flower in the distance and curiosity had got the best of me.

I was wondering what kind of flower could bloom this time of year. I reached down to touch it and it felt a little strange. I chuckled feeling a little silly. My Mother in law is a very strange woman. With 80 acres of land she stills feels the need to plant fake flowers. Well, she had me fooled, almost!

Well, it looks like another year has come and gone. Last year at this time I was still living in the city. We took a big leap of faith by moving out to the country but it seems to have paid off. Sometimes you just have to go with your gut. It just felt like the right thing to do. I sometimes wonder how I got here. Things did not have to be this good.

Speaking of following my gut

There were others places to invest money but Steemit just felt right. I must admit I felt a little stupid watching Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin taking off. The thought had crossed my mind that I had made a huge mistake. I realized that I get something more here than just a financial investment. I get to create and express myself. I get to be part of something bigger than myself. I have realized that I am not alone in my thoughts. There are others who think the same way .

I would like to thank @phelimint for creating this really cool piece. " I bought it with steem" I proudly tell people. They look at me like I am crazy and go back to watching wheel of fortune. They have no idea how brainwashed they are and thats ok.

Pretty for Christmas Eve.

Merry Christmas to you!!

Steem will have a very prosperous 2018 with the introduction of SMT, I truely believe we made the right choice investing our time and money into this revolutionary project.

That's really amazing picture and that coin is really looking precious, precious because it includes the logo of Steem. Steem is precious for me. Thanks for sharing.

Merry Christmas and stay blessed.

Have a great day.

I absolutely love that your mother in law planted fake flowers, that is much too cute. Plus, it gave you a little smile by the sounds of it so that is a bonus. Love to have met you on Steemit, so I am glad you made the decision to come on here. Hope you have a very Wonderful Holiday.

Lol your grandma seems quite a character

Merry Christmas
And let’s hope your Steem investment climbs big time next year

Enjoy Sunday! Merry Christmas

very nice photos

We plan to move out more towards the country one day. We are really working now to be able to have our own land and build on it for our family.

I am so grateful my brother introduced me to Steemit. He and my husband were already into crypto currencies but my brother knew I would love the blogging side of it. Steemit has made me more interested in the block chain and learning about other coins. I am still confused by a lot of things but I am just thankful my family knows about all of this and are finding new ways to invest our earnings. I’m learning as I go :)

yes come out to the country, The Internet might be a little shitty but you don't have to worry about being shot as much. its a good trade. I hope to never work in a big city again!

That’s our plan! I know it will be hard work keeping up with land but I think it’s worth it. Eventually we want to get to the point where we’re off the grid and living with only solar panels! 😁 We do want to be where it’s less busy and as you said where we’re less likely to get shot. 😐

shew shew I need some time off. It does help to spend some time in the wilderness . I don't think a lot of people go with their gut anymore. they take the safe road and it never fulfills them. Heck, I need to take my own advice. meh, still groggy. anyways keep the good posts coming and thanks again for all of your support!

Love the idea of planting fake flowers!

One of my grandmothers use to put fake flowers in pots on her porch. I always thought it was adorable.

I too, am glad I found Steemit, it has so much to offer and I am learning so much I didn't know.

I'd love to move to the country for various reasons so I keep my eye out for property we can afford. So far its a pipe dream but I do believe that if you want something badly enough it will come. :)

I hope you and yours had a nice Christmas!

I love that quote. Awesome.
I got one from Philiment too. Hoping to grab some more Silver from him in the upcoming year!

The flower had me looking closer at the texture too. A splash of a sunny bright coloured fake flower in the winter is nice touch Mother-In-Law. I think your gut is very wise. May you and your family be happy and prosper in the new year.

Well, 'planting' fake flowers is a weird idea but at least it's not that gray anymore))
