These Days R5F

It’s Friday again. Perhaps I can come up with five random thoughts this week that don’t include estate sales.

1.)  Antoine and I have really been enjoying the sunsets recently.

2.)  Motor Man and I took Motor Mum for a ride on the Jamestown/Scotland ferry last Sunday.  The sky has been so beautiful lately; as the gulls flew over, I snapped a few pictures.

3.)  Earlier this week, Motor Man reconnected with a friend from 40+ years ago. His friend has an extensive classic car collection.  What do you think? Am I the Ferrari type? (Not really: more of an  American muscle car girl.)

4.) On a trip to the Outer Banks a couple of weeks ago, I managed to get a picture- taken at 55 miles per hour – of the sunset.  I sure do miss the Barn Charm meme, and find myself still drawn to old barns.

5.) A photo from this week’s day trip (yesterday).  Hint: beautiful! Details next week.

Happy weekend, everyone!

~These Days Of Mine~

From The Interstate At 70 MPH


I think it’s only human nature to sometimes take for granted the landscape that you see on an everyday basis.

Last week when Motor Man and I drove to Michigan, we couldn’t help but notice the beautiful countryside covered in snow, and I wondered if the local residents appreciated the beauty.

As Motor Man was driving down the interstate at 65-70 mph, I was almost hanging out of the window, snapping pictures of the scenery.

You may remember that I have a fondness for barns. Pennsylvania and Ohio didn’t disappoint. I love the serenity of the snow and the weathered white of the buildings in this photo. And how about that house up on the hill?

And of course, the red barns stood out against the blanket of snow.

This picture wasn’t taken from the interstate. We were on a country road in Virginia when we saw this beautiful old barn. The arrow is pointing to a tiny horsehoe.

It’s easier to see in this cropped photo.

But this may be my favorite photo of all the ones I took from the interstate. Written on the little shed in front of the barn is “DRINK MILK!”.

Moutains, valleys, barns, snow: the perfect combination for beautiful scenery. I hope the locals noticed.
