Lazy Morning

Ahhhhh.....this morning there was nothing to wake up for. No early football practice nor any early basket ball practice. Just a slow wake up with some coffee and a nice long walk to start the day. I did, eventually, have to make a quick trip to, "town".

 I found this barn with one lonely hay roll on my small country road. 



This lovely barn duo is at the intersection of a small highway and my little country road. 




Finally, I made it back to the farmette.  One of the ladies in the yard greeted me upon my arrival. 



"Living in a small town....is like living in a large family with uncongenial relations.  Sometimes it's fun, and sometimes it's perfectly awful, but it's always good for you.  People in large towns are like only children."

  4. That first barn photo is handsome, and then those exuberant flowers. Are they all growing in a planter? That is a great mix of colors.

  10. Michelle -- Great composition and color in the top barn and hay roll. I do believe that many women as they age become more solitary. My aunt raised nine healthy children -- she was quite frazzled by the time they all left home. Her comment to me later in her life was --"I love living alone." I think women just have so much on their plate when the family is young and full of energy -- after the children have left women can finally look at their own life and really decide what they want to do with it. I look at my older years as a transformative time. -- barbara

  16. I long for the those kind of mornings! With cattle, there is always a reason to get up. Of course, on vacation I was the first up every morning. I was hoping I could "bank" some of that early time, but apparently the bank at home doesn't work that way! DANG! ;-)
