I think I May Be Obsessed with Old Barns

Red Barn

On my days off, mom and I like to go exploring!

One of the things I like to do, is drive through ‘farm country’ in search of old barns!

I think I may be obsessed with them!

Unfortunately, as we explore, I am seeing the traditional wood and stone barns going by the wayside.

Gradually, I see newer barns being built of aluminum or steel… for this reason, I am always pleased when I come across an old barn – especially one that is still in use and well taken care of!

Barns come in all shapes and sizes! Some big, some little…

Like this little yellow barn I christened ‘the happy barn!’

The Happy Barn

Or this lovely white barn I found…

Barns are used by farmers for a number of things… housing for livestock… storage of food, such as this big ‘dehydrator’ that is used to cure tobacco after its been brought in from the field.

As I explore the local area in search of these old, beautiful barns, I can’t help but think about the families that live on the farm… the memories that are being made… and the stories they hold…  yes, I truly do think I am obsessed with old barns!

Until next time,

Peace, love and safe travels!

Changing My Mindset

20220823_124418_0000

What’s the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning?

As you lay in bed, do you think things like:

  • I have to get up.
  • I have to go to work.
  • I have to make healthy meals.
  • I have to exercise.

I know I am certainly guilty of this!

And to be quite honest, by saying such things, I have procrastinated… so much so, that I have had to rush out the door to get to work! And I live at the campground!

Moreover, I have ignored the whole exercise thing completely!

But what would happen, if instead of saying “I have to…” we started saying “I get to?”

  • I get to wake up in the morning.
  • I get to go to work.
  • I get to make healthy meals.
  • I get to exercise.

By using the words ‘I get to,’ we can start to see how truly blessed we are, and how much we have to be thankful for!

So, what do you get to do today?

Until next time,

Peace, love and safe travels!
