Brandy Day268: Fly Over States

I want to give a huge shout to all the farmers!! Thank you!! The hours you put in, the physical labor you do. We don’t see all that is put into making sure there is successful crop & livestock growth for food and raw materials.
I’ve always enjoyed living in the country. The smell, the farms, the old barns, the cattle & horses. I love when the farmers harvest the fields this time of year! The smell of fresh soil, beans & corn.
The bulk of corn that is produced today is not for food production but more everyday items such as plastic, batteries, cosmetics, cough syrup & diapers to name a few. Most soybeans are processed for their oil as well as protein for the livestock feed industry, however they are also used for human consumption.
Next time you find yourself pissed off behind a tractor or semi, perhaps you should wave in thanks for all they do rather than speeding by in frustration.

Brandy Day198: Yummy!

I love breakfast food!! Its always been one of my favorites, which is good cause they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Lately though, when I wake I’m starving but after I’ve made food I’m no longer interested 😦 This morning after I cooked, I was able to choke down some eggs and hash browns. I hope this doesn’t continue on much longer. It saddens me not to crave some of my favorite things!
