At the head of the bed in our room at the farm, instead of a headboard, was a large north-facing window. As day began to break, all I needed to do was lift my head off the pillow a bit to see the sun rise over the horizon. I'd wanted to get up early and get out with my camera, but was quite happy with the sunrise situation from bed.
Considering it was a "vacation Saturday," I was up very early -- out right around 6 a.m. -- a fact that I shared with DH's uncle, whose farm this is, when we visited him later in the morning at the long-term care facility where he now lives. I am very happy with the images I captured on the farm, but my favorite memory -- the one that will come to mind every time I view these photos -- is the happy expression on Uncle's face when I was telling him about my early morning and how much I enjoyed poking around his old farm.
The resident barn cat is the exact opposite in coloring of our Roxie, and much like her in temperament. This is a barn cat that could just as easily live in the house -- and might even prefer it.
There were cows in the barn recently, but the notes were old, old, old!
While DH continued with the visiting on Saturday afternoon, I had a little break in the action and a most enjoyable visit with Ms. Kmkat at Cafe Wren in Luck, WI. Cafe Wren is an adorable cafe -- a converted old house, great color, local artwork everywhere -- and offers a fantastic Cranberry Chicken Salad Sandwich for lunch.
