Thoughts From the Week

Today I present to you a selection of random barn shots that have absolutely nothing to do with the subject matter of this post.  Do enjoy.....



I now have a cap and gown hanging in the laundry room.  Wrinkle free, shiny, and all ready for ceremonies happening in a few weeks.  It seems strange that the young man of the house is already 18 years old.  



I shall be making this fine dessert tonight for our Sunday family supper.  If you haven't made it, you need to.  A family/potluck favorite.  


In between softball games yesterday, I checked out my latest edition of Southern Living magazine.  (Thanks Mom for the subscription.)  Rick Bragg's column at the back of the book is always a favorite of mine.  Here is a great example of his work.  And, his words ring true.  


Signing off for now, as chores await as does more coffee.  With the men fishing and the softball girl resting, I am enjoying some quiet in this old farmhouse.  

Go forth and have an exceptional Sunday.

  2. It is an odd feeling how 'suddenly' our children are grown, I do remember that feeling. Mine are now 10 years beyond that point... That dessert sounds delicious...

  3. Have I ever told you that I just adore your posts...and this one is great, too. Have we ever seen any of your "old farmhouse"? I can't remember ever seeing it or any of the rooms.
    Hope you are having a good Sunday...I just made a cake to take to our Home Fellowship gathering tonight and it's all I can do to keep from cutting it...I am such a weanie. :) but, I mean, REALLY.....sweet ....and chocolate...hard to resist. :)

  7. Lovely barn photos...I would love for you to share photos of your "old farmhouse"...In the blink of an eye children grow into young adults and soon head off to college...it's called empty nest...I am not a fan, but learned to adapt...How tempting this recipe sounds...Have a wonderful week...

  13. It's amazing how quickly children grow up isn't it? I thought those high school years whizzed by way too quickly. I enjoyed the barn photos...I love old barns and big old farm houses.

  20. If there was such a magazine in Maine (Downeast Farmer?), the conversation might go like this: " Ayuh, ya got a problem there, mister. Don't know much about 'wyas', but ol' Rusty down at the 'corna' there might. That's his place across from the graveyard. He's my brotha's wife's brotha. Good one. Knows wyas, yes sa he does."

  21. Oh, and the barn pics? Fab... all.

  22. There's nothing like a barn shot or seeing a barn out in a large field with nothing around. You wonder what it holds. If you had the opportunity to play in a barn as a kid then you rekindle those memories....ahhh to be a kid again....playing in a barn.

  32. I don't know where to start...enjoyed the barn shots. You should link to Amy's Barn Collective. She has it up now.

    The dessert sounds delicious...haven't read the Rick Bragg thing but going to. It used to be a tradition with me to listen to the audio version of All Over but the Shoutin' while I fixed either the Thanksgiving meal or the Christmas. Parts of it reminds me of us kids growing up. If you haven't read it or listened to it, you might try it. I have did both.
