Day 172: Halloween Barn


Spent a day here recently helping decorate for a Halloween party at my friend’s house/barn.

There will be cobwebs, crepe paper, skeletons, blood, tombstones, and creepy lights placed in strategic places.

This old barn is not just a stinky old tobacco barn but a huge horse barn that in its hay day was the best in the state.

Tons of stalls, room for hay above, medical stalls, and cleaning/treatment areas. Super impressive. The cobwebs already present will make for an awesome haunted barn for the party.

I can’t wait to drink punch and dance around the bonfire :-)

Day Forty: Melting

Frosted Barn

This past winter has given us some of the best snow I’ve seen in several years. I feel like I haven’t really shown my appreciation much since I haven’t built a single snowman or gone sledding. Some of the snow this winter…ahhh, perfect for sledding.

Even if I haven’t had much of chance to go out and romp in the snow at least I get to enjoy the beautiful frost it has left over the farm.
Above is the barn in the backyard, with the blowing wind it gave the front of the barn a cover of icing. Even the horses’ manes have bits of icing on them early in the morning.

As much as I love the snow, I sure do love the warm weather that melts it away. Weather in the 50s and 60s help chase away the cold winter nights that are so vivid in my recent memory.
