Let it out. Let it all out...

You know those times you get too much going on in your brain and you just blurt out random things?


That's how I feel this weekend.
It's been a busy week, I'm hot and windblown, and a little frazzled.
Okay a lot frazzled.


Here are some photos found in my phone recently.
There's no rhyme or reason to any of it.
Some of them I shared on Instagram (@therustedchain) and some I didn't.


I love love love small towns in Middle America.

Lilo's tired of posing for pictures. She has such a tough life.

I grew these!! And they made a delicious salad. You can just call me Martha.

I made jam. Strawberry Mulberry jam. And it's goodlicious. You can just call me Farmer Beki.

He picked 3 wildflowers for me. I don't know why, but he insisted that it had to be 3.

Middle School band and choir concert. Ree (The Pioneer Woman) texted me in the middle of the concert, not knowing where I was.
Of course I didn't have my phone on vibrate. Oops.
It still baffles me to look down at my phone and see her name.
There's one other celeb that's also become a texting friend and it amazes me to see her name in my phone too.

I love this Martha Stewart ad in a magazine. So retro, but so dang cute.

The Girl and I went thrift shopping and I loved these Strawberry plates. Now I'm kicking myself for not getting them.

This was a floor length "Crazy Quilt Coat". I did not buy it either.
But if you want it, I'll go back and get it for you.
I'm sure it'll still be there.

All the wheat is starting to turn and just about to be harvested.
Kansas is so pretty in the warm months.

I think that's all.
I'm done. Spent. Fried.

Bongo drums.

I'm particularly fond of the specific small town in middle America in your photo. I hope to live in it for the rest of my life. :)

Petunia? You must have been thinking of me! ;) Loving all your random words thrown in there.

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

My dad said they'll be cutting wheat by the end of the week. It's like my favorite holiday- harvest. Soooo glad we're out of school by that time.

I want to come to your small town America countryside idyll!!! One day, Farmer Beki, one day. If you can promise no snakes.

The world would be a happier place if we could all own, and wear, a crazy quilt coat.

I am going to try blurting out random words someday when I'm done.spent.fried. and see how my family reacts, this is fantastic, just like the crazy quilt coat :)

I have those strawberry plates, they are small ones, like dessert ones...can't tell from the picture what size the plates you saw are. Anyway, I'd be willing to part with them if you really want them. You can email me at if you want. :)

That's it. We are twins separated at birth. I blurt out random words all of the time when I really feel a burning need to say them. Extraneous!!!

I have not really met anyone else like that except maybe my husband who has more self-control than I do and just tells me that he feels like saying ______ instead of actually just blurting it out with no explanation. But at least he understands me.

You are forever on my favorites list because of this post.
