Rural Thursday

Moonlighting these days....

I didn't quite finish my painting job yesterday
(not that I didn't give it my all!)

painting a garage (ceiling and all) twice
in one day 
I would say is a good try
the home owner decided 
to throw in a closet!
So, it's back 
to the old paint schtick again

I guess I'll be doing pickles by the moonlight tonight!

Here are some of
 the exciting sites
I've been seeing 
on my way to work these days....

The local vet tends to a lot
of cows in Miller, South Dakota!

The Sale barn
(an interesting style to share with "Barn Charm")

Max got to come along
with me a couple of days...

we just had to stop along the road
and admire this sunflower field!

Max got to leave 
his mark on a few hay bales!
(exciting for him)

the old one-room school house
reminded me it's already
"back-to-school" time!
(poor kids)

and time for me to hit 
the road one final day...

the sooner I get done,
the sooner I get 
back home to a 
cooler full of pickles
and a counter full of tomatoes!!

I call it too many irons in the fire!!

Carry on!

P.S. See you back here tomorrow for "Farm Fresh Friday"!
Bring us something fresh to oooo and ahhhh over!!

sharing with Nancy and Lisa
at Rural Thursday...
see you in the country!

You really do have a lot of irons in the fire, but you've had some great views that have come with it and taken some terrific photos!
