Perfection

Perfection is not truly attainable. But, yesterday was pretty close. Started the day off with low temps, cool breezes and doors to this old house open wide.  That beautiful weather hung around all the live long day.






Right down the road, I came across a tobacco field in the process of being cut.  By days end half of the field was finished.  Really a lot of work.  The plant is cut, put on a stick, and will be hung in the barn to dry. 




The evening had me at a local Bluegrass festival enjoying the likes of JD Crowe and the New South






A sunset on the way home just topped off the day. 






Not perfect, but pretty darn close.

  1. The secret is in enjoying what life throws at you, isn't it? And when life is kind and throws a day like that, well . . . perfection!

  11. It does look like a perfect day! I can see how cutting and hanging tobacco leaves is work intensive. It looks like the drought wasn't too bad in your area.

    It's still a little too warm here for my comfort but I know in a few weeks the first hints of autumn are going to arrive and I'm so ready for them!

  17. It's why I've always been drawn to 'small town life'. I'll take it!

  18. Yes, ma'am, I'd say it was purty perfect, too! I'm SO looking forward to some cooler temps!

    I think it's neat how the tobacco is harvested. We have some friends that came by an old tobacco wagon - big ole thing - that they hang all the tobacco sticks on and carry it to the barn. REALLY neat piece of southern history. I love that stuff!

  22. Toe tapping and a dance with
    that fella you call Mr. Romance!

    After-all, you said a perfect day
    or as close to one as you could
    expect. ;-)
