The Weekend Report..........

The Man took a personal day on Friday and he still has a week of vacation left as well!  Whoo hoo! 

Friday morning he put Black Betty in the infirmary so he could pull her transmission.

Notice she could use a good bath as well!!

After that was done, we finished up the trim-work on the barn.  It looks so great!  I can't wait to see it painted, but we may have to wait until next summer to get that done.

I'm thinking that up there in the peak, I'm going to try to get a laser cut cross to hang up there.....what ya think??  We are also trying to decide if we will paint it all red, with the eaves and the corners white, or if we will paint it red and paint all the batten strips white.........what ya think 'bout that??

Then, while I was on the ladder looking over the roof I saw this............the picture truly doesn't do it justice, but try to click on it and see if you can get a feel.  It was so beautiful I was nearly moved to tears and just had to make it my header for awhile.

Such a gorgeous world God has blessed us to live in!  Ps....I LOVE the panorama setting on my camera!!

On Saturday Pop Pop and Granny picked up The Youngun to head over to my sister's for the weekend and we pretty much just fooled around, got some groceries, that sort of thing.  Pretty much just took it easy. 

Then Sunday The Man played in his shop while I had a nice ride on Champ.  Having a great ride on a beautiful day is just so wonderful!  There is nothing like cantering along in a field with the sun shining and the breeze blowing!  God is good!! 

God Bless...........
