Driving past an Oregon barn on a summer day.
Oohing and ahing over the scenery....and the horses.
Watching the sunlight dance across the sky and kiss the green...
               today I'm wishing I was right there.

Instead, the rains are beating down and the winds are blowing.
The last few leaves of autumn, drenched and tossed by the wind, will be raked away soon.
Today my bones are achy, my head's pounding, and my bed's got a magnetic hold on me.
I've had to let go of what I enjoy the most, in order to rest and make it through the have tos....
                 and that's got me kinda cranky.

So I'll just close my eyes, and drift back to sunny Oregon.
And remember that the holidays that bring kids home
and family together 
are just around the corner.

  1. Great picture and great memory. During the cold months I'm always wistful for the warm days and family being together.

  2. Welcome to Barn Charm

    Now, that looks like one beautiful barn scene! Lovin the barn & horses... the fence, too!

    So sorry you're sick, but here's to getting better & kicking sickness in butt! LoL! =)

    Thanks a bunch for joining =)

  3. Love the shape of this one! I like how the roof descends in small steps there on the right. Easy for snow runoff I'm assuming. Throw in some horses and great fencing and it's charming!

  4. This one just goes on and on! And isn't it the perfect shade of red! It's fun to look forward to the holidays with family and friends!

  5. oooohhhh i just love this image. so happy to see you at barn charm!!

  6. Beautiful barn and photo! I love the dreamy feel. My early years were spent in Oregon so it holds a special place in my heart.

  7. What a lovely picture, Adrienne. Yesterday was just nasty weather here, too. Today, the sun's shining, but it's going to be a chilly one!

  8. That looks like my part of Oregon. Love barns too.
