"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

The Old Mill Stream

Today I'd planned on showing a few pics of Jack's sweet vintage cowboy room... I was inspired to finish a few last details by other bloggers procrastination parties. But I'll procrastinate more as pics would require more cleaning and I'm just not up to that today. This cold/sinus infection has lingered a week and exhausted me on top of foal watching (up nights checking momma horse to assist in foal's delivery), weedwhacking, planting, teaching and MOSTLY mommying my strong willed kindergartener. Lord give me strength and deliver us a healthy mare and foal!

I'd rather be "Down by The Old Mill Stream," nearby
wouldn't you?





One year after starting this blog and posting this, I'm linking to the great Barn Charm party!

Love these old buildings, and the wheel is a wonderful addition. We have the Cyrus McCormack Farm where he invented the reaper here in Rockbridge county, and these types of buildings are beautifully preserved on that property. Such nice photography.

I have to apologize for taking so long to visit everyone's Barn Charm entries... the flood situation in this area has me out shooting the scenery! =0
