Northwoods Jaunt, Day 1: Down on the Farm
I took Friday off and drove with DH to the great northwoods of Wisconsin for some lots of visiting. There was a nice gathering of almost everyone we in the area of DH's uncle's farm on Friday evening -- Aunts Bev, Dodo and Ruth, Uncle Rudy, cousins Linda, Carol and Kent, first-cousin-once-removed Chris!
From my seat where we visited in the 3-season porch, I noticed the shadow of the garage creeping up the side of the barn as the sun fell -- the windows on the barn perfectly placed so that it looked like a tiny little shadow house. I was a good little visitor, but I squirmed in my seat as I watched that shadow until I couldn't stand it any longer! I couldn't bear to let the opportunity pass, so jumped up and bolted out the door, grabbing my camera and shooting some farm stuff in the late day sun.
Not to forget Macro May!
The Farmall tractor -- with flare!
I came back in with my knitting (as of last night, two of the six Parcheesi squares is fini!). It was fun to spend an evening on the farm -- in the country. I've never had a rural address, and think I'd like to someday... if I can ever leave my present, practically perfect place. (I'd also like to try an utterly urban address someday, too!)
I hope you had a good weekend. I'll be back with more tomorrow -- Saturday was nearly as perfect a day as could be imagined! But today is Monday, after all, and there's lots to catch up on in all areas of life.
