On my 20 mile ride on Friday, after my sweetie visit, I managed to capture quite a few barns, some in better shape than others, but all have their own charm.
It's difficult to see but this barn's established date is 1895
While this barn has 1948...the 1895 barn looks in much better shape than the 1948 barn....I guess they just don't make them like they used to...But I particularly like the blue chair sitting in the doorway. I drove by this same barn last summer and the blue chair was sitting in that same spot. Either it is bolted down (which I doubt) or it must be someone's favorite spot to sit or.....someone is just too lazy to pick it up and put it away. I have a feeling it might be that last choice....I know, I have things that need putting away and I am too lazy to do it.
And speaking of 'too lazy'....this morning as I was in the shower, I heard the phone rang. Now 10-15 years ago I would turn off the shower, and run dripping wet with a towel barely wrapped around me, to answer the phone because 10-15 years ago I knew that when the phone rang it was almost always someone that I knew that wanted to talk to me and I wanted to talk to them (usually). Now, more times than not, when the phone rings, it is an unknown caller, an 800 number or a business that I know is going to bug me to buy something or donate to some worthy cause. I am getting to the point where I don't answer the phone at all, if it's important, or someone really wants to talk to me, they will leave a message. And I certainly won't turn off the shower and run half-naked to try to answer the ringing phone, no not anymore. I am even starting to receive these annoying calls on my cell phone. YURK!!
OK that is enough ranting. Went to the movies with my girlfriends today...we went to see "Parental Guidance" with Bette Midler and Billy Crystal. It will definitely not win any awards, but it was cute, made me giggle and I left with a big smile on my face. The kids were absolutely adorable and there were lessons learned. Sometimes that's all you need from a movie...just a big smile as you leave.
Linking up with Trish over at Barn Charm. Wishing you all a good Monday and a great week ahead.
