If you take the curvy backroads, this Red Man barn is our neighbor 5 minutes away. If you go by way of the 'main' roads, it takes a bit longer. But every time I pass it, when I happen to pass it, it takes my breath away. I can not even FATHOM putting that much work into a barn! The painting is very intricate and ornate. Of course, accompanying the barn in a beautiful brick home, a trellised yard and curvy stream lined with huge, perfectly rectangular chunks of rock. All in all, a stunning show off the side of the road. I have hoped for a day when the sun was setting behind it, but my timing has never worked out and I thought I might as well be happy with a blue sky, while I wait.
Speaking of waiting. And men.
My Mattie is off doing the 'guy thing' tonight, camping out under the stars and a military poncho. Tomorrow, he is going woodchuck hunting. A 100% guy weekend!
I hate being away from him, especially at night, so when it is necessary, I try to play it up to be fun.
A feeble task it is, trying to convince myself... but I attempt to do so none-the-less. My 'fun night' involves a girlie movie, a bowl of twix triple chocolate ice cream, and the blog.
Actually, looking at the time, I should correct myself and say-the night has PASSED with ice cream and the blog. Picasa just ate up my whole night-so the movie will have to be set aside for another time.
Since I am heading out tomorrow to spend the day with the two other families involved in the camping trip. Let's see: that means 15 kids and six adults
and since we will be there for THREE meals
and since I time has slipped away from me, yet again, and it is now !0:45pm...
I have some SERIOUS food making to do. Looks like it will be another early morning... The third night in a row that I have not gone to bed earlier than 1 am.
Worst part? I have no plan! I have no idea what to make! Agh. Rebecca!
Shame on you!
