Driving for Pizza

Yesterday evening after a somewhat muddly day I drove over to a small American midwest country town, that has a real live Italian chef, to buy some good pizza for this New Zealand farmer to take back home to my prairie kitchen for dinner. ย Some days it is such a relief to leave the dinner to someone else.

These were the skies I drove under.

Travelling East.



Then the return trip travelling West 30 minutes later (I treated myself to oneย very nice glass of wine sitting very happily all alone at the little bar – the Italian chef’s wife knows her wines!).





Just BooBoo and I and a big, big sky.

I hope you have a lovely day.

  1. That last sunset shot is wonderful. I hope the pizza was everything you anticipated โ€“ sometimes it’s exactly what you need.

  2. Your prairie skies and low clouds always give me the feeling I should creep along the ground like a cat in stealth mode ๐Ÿ™‚ Laura

  3. Amazing photos! The second one looks to me like waves rolling up on a beach. Wine, fine pizza and beautiful skies, and Boo right there sounds like a perfect Friday evening.

  4. What an exquisite sky! It looks almost surreal. Sometimes there is nothing quite as relaxing as a pizza, glass of wine and my own company.

  5. Beautiful pictures my sweet friend. I’m glad you took some time to yourself for a change. Kudo’s to YOU!! XOXO – Bacon

      • That is awesome my sweet friend! You so need to take more time for yourself. I know! That’s like me telling mom to do that. But sometimes, you just need a little pampering – even if it is a few minutes with a glass of wine ๐Ÿ™‚ Love you bunches – sending major hogs and snout kisses. XOXO – Bacon

  6. Excellent choice for last night. I miss The Big Sky show sometimes here in the woods, so then I have to go down to the lighthouse point and get my fill. Love your clouds!

  7. I hope the pizza was at least half as luscious as those impressive skies. A toast to a girl and her dog having a quiet moment alone. Nothing better.

  8. just thought about my piggy T shirt I ordered…..can you confirm that all is correct please

    • You will have to go to the site and check your account – I have nothing to do with the orders – I really do not have the time that is why i work with this site – just sign in and see what your account says

  9. We love living close to the ocean. We enjoy the mild winters. But, dear Heart, you gathered every memory of our glorious prairie skies and gifted them to me. For this and all the delightful mornings I spend on the farm I thank you from the bottom of my heart. XX X Virginia

  10. Much as I adore TonTon, I can’t think of a more agreeable old soul companion in the passenger seat than Boo.
    And that blue of the sky in the last shot? Twilight? I stood looking out my front window last night waiting patiently for it, until my husband who was eating his salad alone in the kitchen finally came to fetch me asking “Is there something wrong?”
    I watched the grey, pinks, aquas all dissolve to grey but missed the blue. Trying again tonight.

  11. Much as I adore TonTon, I can’t imagine a more agreeable, old soul companion in the passenger seat than dear Boo.

    Spectacular skies, Cecilia. Absolutely stunning.

  12. Oh my! Oh sky, so that’s where you’very been lately. Oh Boo, you lucky dog, you! So nice of you, Miss C., to share your ride home with us.

  13. I love driving the back roads with only the land and sky especially at sunset. Haven’t been able to do that for awhile. I’m glad you had a nice drive, good company (sweet Boo), a good pizza and glass of wine. All of us need something like that once in awhile, no demands, no agenda, just some quiet time alone. Have a lovely evening.

  14. This lovely fall posting makes me think of Tom Rush’ song “The Urge for Going”. Search on YouTube for it and be transported into the season through this evocative song in minor chords. This is a song I used to play and sing when I played the guitar. Much love, your Gayle

  15. Lovely!!! So Friday was still ‘pizza night’ but no one had to make it! The photos are glorious: I could never take such with the plethora of tall trees and undulant ground here . . . am scrolling back and forth . . . . just one thought since I do not know the US laws: in Europe one could have taken Boo in to sit next to you and the glass of wine . . . here it is a big ‘no-no’: if there also, hope he had a nice private quiet nap during . . . ๐Ÿ™‚ !!

      • More’s the pity indeed! Guess he still felt he was keeping ‘watch’ over HIS lady ๐Ÿ™‚ !! I just remember the multitudinous lunches and quite a few dinners in France, S Germany, Austria especially and Italy where, coming back from the loo, it was a continuous ‘step-over’ from anything from white snappy poodles to huge mountain dogs with lots of pats en route!! As long as they behave: I love it !!!!

  16. Fantastic skies! We don’t have take aways or deliveries very often but when we do (and I think next week we’ll be having a few as we now have no means of cooking as the kItchen fit starts tomorrow! ) we make sure it’s something worthwhile. We have an excellent, award winning fish and chips that also does pan fried fish, uses locally caught fish where possible and does specials like smoked haddock fishcakes or mussels….and all in recycled, bio degradable packaging…and delivered too ๐Ÿ˜€
