From the land of Lincoln

After we left the Heron and Eagle viewing station north of Danville, Illinois last weekend, we wondered around a little bit on back roads.  Notice the lack of green there...there was a big, big difference between here and there in the amount of green showing on the trees.  And just in general.  This is about an hour northwest of us...give or take a few minutes.
****************
We have touchdown here...or, in other words, Lorelei is asleep.  She wanted to chatter and chatter, then she was quiet and out for the count.

I am not sure how much blogging I will get done while she is here.  When they got here, she told me she was going to stay 5 days!  We shall see!

I am not sure how much blogging I will get done...not even sure if I will get anything posted.  But should be able to do a bit.  She is a lot more independent than she used to be.

I did get the binding sewn down today...so may even work on the hand sewing part of that while she is here.

Will talk later...

Love,
Rose

I think you should start drinking lots of strong coffee for the next few days...I love the pale, almost monochromatic look of the picture.

I like the barn you found. It has a different look with the large top part and the lone lean-to. A very good shot of the place.

Its amazing how things grow around here too. Things are is such bloom south of us, north - not so much yet. Glad we live right in the middle! HA!
Have a great weekend! And a great Mothers Day!

I know you are having a wonderful time with that sweetie. I think I found the place you mentioned north of Danville. Next time Hubs and I have a day off at the same time we will check it out.

One beautiful barn, and I imagine the quiet is too! :)

I'm going to have to go to this place in Danville sometime. You sure saw a lot of neat stuff there!

I hope you had a nice Mother's Day with twinkle toes dancing around. Is she really going to stay 5 days?
Cheri told my about your California daughter and surgery. I hope all is going well for her.

It is amazing how when the grands come a grandma can become super grandma filled with adrenalin and as soon as they leave no more super power for a week. I pass through Danville when I go to visit my son in Norris City Illinois. Maybe I should take a detour and visit the eagle watching station and find a few barns on my next pass through. Your barn photo is a great. Love the cupola on top.

I like that old barn. I don't think we have anything like it here.

That's a nice, neat-looking old barn.

While I miss the connection of the really young grandkids, I do prefer their independence now they are 7 and 9. I liked having them attached to me for only so long. Now of course I will start missing it.
