Exciting Times



Lately it's been all barns and ballplayers around the farmette.  I threw some flowers in the mix yesterday and I am sure the excitement of that was overwhelming for some of you.  Let's see what else has been happening in my world.........

*the tiller coughed and sputtered this weekend, instead of purring like a kitten

*all of the girl's softball socks have holes in them 

*always interesting to find some wild turkey in the fridge and I am not talking about the bourbon

*tattling is a sinful activity, especially at the end of the school year 

*secret agent farmer man doesn't find the prospect of owning a llama entertaining  

*the PTO is hosting a lunch for us weary teachers tomorrow, can't wait 


Enough about me.....what's happening in your neck of the woods?

  1. My mom was big on 'no tattling'---I agree.

  3. Hello, pretty rural scene. I love the barn and curvy dirt road. Kudos to all the teachers. No Llama, they are cute! Enjoy your day and the week ahead!

  4. Llama sounds good to me. I always told my kids, you go tell the teacher your mother said to, so that made me laugh. Hope your summer is wonderful.

  7. What??! You don't get to get a Llama? Watch out, they spit!
    No... that's a camel. Don't get a camel.

  8. Cute little old barn. I enjoyed your thoughts. But you might want to think of an Alpaca over a Llama.. they are easier to handle and the fiber on them is the softest ever. ((hugs)), Teresa :-) (and they are cuter)

  9. Sounds like an interesting week! We have very large gardens, so our tillers don't seem to last long before they start coughing and sputtering (And worse)! They have to do a lot of work!

  12. Enjoy your lunch. Your pot looks like it's going to look really nice. I put some sweet potato vine and salvia in a pot with an ornamental grass. The vine is already going crazy!
    Thanks for sharing.

  13. How is that that such a dilapidated looking structure can be so pleasing to the eye in a photograph? Well done. I love the composition with the trees and road. Hopefully, the PTO was honoring you and your colleagues for National Teacher Appreciation Day --- and hopefully you were (and still are) appreciated.

  14. I'm new here! Your name immediately drew me in as I live in a small Kentucky town that we just moved back to from the city last year. I love how you captured the essence of farm country with this beautiful picture of the barn, because it's that look that surrounds the town I'm in, too. I can't wait to browse around here and read some more!
    Blessings,

  15. Your world sounds exciting and wonderful to me!
    I am a retired high school English teacher and I know how exhausting/ exciting May is.
    It's almost summer!

  16. A fine barn shot. Don't you run out of photogenic barns? Hope the PTO recognition event was fun and that you felt the appreciation from the parents. (You wouldn't get a llama if you lived with me, either.)
