Back roads

We took a drive today…. all back roads.  I took so many pictures my batteries died.

I knew I wanted to go to an old barn that fell down.  Steve has known about it for a couple years, but I just discovered it a few weeks ago.

And he wanted to take me to see this pond/tree/shed that he loves.  I had never been on this road.  I think I was on about 10 different roads I had never been on before.

I made him stop as soon as I saw this tree.  It is a sycamore, fairly rare in this area.  Steve thinks we need one.

Oh, but it was even prettier from the other side!

This old house is on a road that neither of us had ventured down before.

Hope your weekend was great.  We are re-charged and ready for a busy week ahead of us.  Lots of quilts to do, a building to work on, and Steve is preparing for hay season.  Oh joy.

I did get the next several hours of listening enjoyment loaded on my mp3 player.  I am in the middle of Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs.  It has been entertaining, poignant and profound.  It is rare for me to laugh out loud due to a book, but this one has me laughing raucously.  Thanks for the recommendation Adam!
