Sunday I was a bit blue.
At 3 I was still in my pj's.
I needed a good cry.
which I got spectacularly
from watching Steel Magnolias.
(I think this movie is the all-time best chic flick.)
My husband suggested we take a drive to Fairy Land,
a sandwich, ice cream, etc. place that we like,
but aren't often out that way.
There were some houses for sale on past it,
so I got dressed, downloaded info from the Internet,
and off we went.
.After a delicious lunch, we hit the dirt and graveled roads
looking for one house in particular.
We found it and it has a wonderful two acre setting
complete with barn.
However the extra miles to my school would not only add
too much more driving time,
the road was grueling.
It would beat the crud out of my Mountaineer.
So, no to that.
we found lots of barns!
Here is the first one I photographed.
It's on a country road
outside of our hometown in southeastern Ohio.
This one was taken from inside the car.
Then my husband suggested I get out, which surprised me.
I didn't think he'd want to sit in the car while I traipsed around
Patience was the rule of the day apparently,
so I traipsed and clicked.
(It took me most of the trip for me to realize
he was deliberately doing this
to get me out of my funk.
His plan worked wonderfully.)
Notice the fence post.
My husband was telling my daughter and son-in-law
about how fascinated I had become with fence posts and such.
I tried to clarify that I was fascinated with barns,
however I couldn't be heard over the laughter.
Well, at one point in photographing this barn,
I put my finger on the zoom button
to get more distance for the above two shots.
I accidentally hit the zoom in
and what should appear smack dab in front of my eyes,
taking up the whole frame?
A fence post!
I burst out laughing.
My husband laughed heartily when I told him the story
once I was back in the car.
A close-up of a door that caught my interest.
These next guys were on down another road with another barn.
I just had to put them in this post though.
Aren't they cute?
The big one has such a beautiful face.
