We are undergoing a few good changes here at the homestead. We built a metal barn type of home that we finished back in the fall of 2004. We have been so blessed to have this wonderful barn style home.
We enjoy having family over often. I like the simplicity of the country life....a place to hear the birds calling sweetly to a mate, the cow bellowing to find it's calf, the howl of the coyotes as the sun begins to set. Oh I don't need riches or gold just the view of the sun setting low or the brilliance of the stars stretching far across the prairie sky.....Yes I do enjoy the country life.
We are enclosing the area where we usually park and making one large gathering room. We will be putting in a large fireplace and lots of windows. We are also adding on a new parking area.
I hope to have a few rug hooking and quilting get togethers here starting later this fall. We plan to make it rustic inside as Danny and I will be the ones doing the inside work....and since we aren't carpenters rustic is what it will be!
Sunday after church I gathered up my paint and brushes and started painting!
Some red and black and look a "new" bench!
Then I just couldn't stop so I made a few signs :)
Thanks to all that visit my blog and catch a glimpse into our life out here on the farm. I truly want to enjoy each day come what may and at the end of the day as I lay my head down I want to give thanks for all my blessings.
Happy Trails to You......Ginger
