This is the second time that I photographed this barn – and both times the barn feels menacing, maybe sinister. It is a good photo for me to post today because right now I’m feeling a little surly. I had a great day shopping with 13 year old granddaughter Emily and I am working on the quilt I’m making her for her bed (and college dorm). I’m paying the price with a very sore back and fatigue and that is frustrating. I’m tired of chronic pain that always has to be pushed through if I want to have a life. I’m frustrated with having to always pay a price for having fun.
There, I’ve had my pity party and now I’m ready to get our supper of fresh sweet corn, hot dogs, and peaches with blueberries from my favorite fruit people at the farmers market. Then I think I’ll work on the quilt a little more, soak and polish my feet, and then Emily and I are watching Christmas Holiday together. She said it is really funny and I know laughter produces more feel-good chemicals in the brain. I wish I could get this barn to laugh.
