Barn/Cottage Update ~ We now have a modern convenience…

It’s called… Electricity!!! Thanks to Mr. W and his blacksmithing/retired electrical expert friend Melvin, we have 6 working lights and 3 double outlets. And even 3-way switches in my area of the barn for my convenience per Mr. W. Why, I feel just plain spoiled. Woo hoo!



We also were given this comfy, stinky, stained, 3-legged couch… but hey, it was FREE! And a 6x6 fixed the 3-legged problem for now. So now we have an official relaxation station inside the barn (just be sure to hold your nose).


Our county is also under a tornado watch tonight. I will drive Mr. W even crazier than usual tonight. Tornado watches and warnings make me twirl around in a circle, turn on every possible source of weather information, plot potential tornado survival scenarios, and babble incessantly. Boy, is he in for a fun evening! This is the only thing I do not love about living here in the great Midwest. Here’s a look at our current sky:


A tufted titmouse is grabbing some sunflower seeds before the storm sets in. I just love their big eyes and chattiness.


Off to batten down the hatches for the outside critters!!

Barn/cottage looks great! Wow, how do you get such wonderful birdie pictures? Oh my goodness, I sure hope your weather stays calm, thinking of you all!

Great photos... I love that one of the bird! And stay safe! (Tornados creep me out.)

We avoided the storms last night, hope you all did too.
Electricity is a wonderful thing. Especially since I work for an Electric Cooperative!

I got the cutest card in the mail today . . .

Stay safe again this evening with the storms. Looks like they are staying your way.
hope to meet you in the real flesh at Ned's!~
