Barn Charm Tuesday - Blue Ridge
On Monday the kids were out of school for MLK day. Christian's buddy called and wanted to get a few guys together for a basketball game so I drove Christian over to the school where they were all meeting to play. I told Christian that if any kids were up to no good and started causing trouble in the neighborhood to call me and I'll come get him because I didn't want to send him to his auntie and uncle in Bel Air. I got a "real funny mom" from him lol....
So anyways, after dropping him off, Braden, Dalton and I went in search of a barn. Braden "AGAIN?" ha, yes again, tomorrow's Tuesday, duh...so drove around and nothing was working in my favor, the sun was in my eyes coming up from behind every barn I'd see. For some reason there weren't any barns on the un-sunny side of the road. And when I'd find a barn and try to focus, cars were coming up out of nowhere. Gosh, don't these people have jobs to be at?!
I did get a bit brave at one point. Took a little gravel road that was called "Pioneer Road". It was a short road and I could see the end, which had a super neat old abandoned house. I drove down it and parked and walked across a small field. The boys wouldn't come with me. I didn't want to get too close to it because although it looked abandoned, I didn't want to get shot or something in case it wasn't. I didn't bring my bigger camera with me and only had my small point and shoot. I was really wishing I had brought my new cam because there were these 2 cool, spooky vultures sitting up on the roof. It was hard for me to focus with my little cam and was windy as heck. But I would love to get closer to that place and check it out. Before spring, before snakes! I'll have to make Nick take me there so I'm not so chicken :) I'll share a pic from there though this week...I know, you can't wait can you?! :D
Today is supposed to be FRIGID. The high is only in the 20's. I told the boys and Braden says "And they are making us go to school?" I know right?! Can we get a cold day?
I'm a Barn Charm linker!
