OK, so on Tuesday evening I text my granddaughter Bailey, (you know that is the only way to communicate with the younger crowd....an actual telephone is beyond their comprehension). She has been out of town on business for 4 weeks so haven't spent any girl time together and I knew she was on vacation this whole week. Anyhoo my text said, "are you busy tomorrow? how about lunch and a drive in the country so Nana can shoot some countryside and barns in the snow? Sounds like fun...right??" She text back.."yes,sounds like fun!". Now I don't know if she really enjoys country drives, is humoring her Nana, or the sound of a free lunch was appealing. I didn't care, I love spending time with her and I haven't been country driving at all since it snowed.
After we had our lunch, (Noodles) we were on our way. It was cold, the wind was whipping, and the sky was totally without color, but I didn't care. I was with my grand and on the road. We ventured into territory neither one of us had ever been thru and along the way I found this....perfect for Theresa's Good Fences Thursday and Kim's Little Things Thursday. After all it is those little things that truly count in our life.
And another one....
Added a texture to this one...
And then barns....probably a little bit breezy in this one.
And just about the time we were done for the day the sky began to brighten up a little..
It was a great day, well spent and now off to the movies with friends and bookclub this evening where we will be talking about "Orange Is The New Black". Enjoy the rest of the week!!

Yup I did it. I got caught up in this scissor love that our lovely Kim introduced us to. I guess I am just like a kid, if she has it then I gotta have it. So I first went searching on Amazon, my go-to place for just about anything from books, bird-feeders and boots. They seemed to be a might expensive for a "prop". So my blogging buddy, Kelly (you might want to hop over to her blog to see her heroic decision for Kids with Cancer campaign) guided me to ETSY. Oh yes, there they were and for only $7.99 plus a little shipping. I also found another one that is a little fancier but with lots of character...unfortunately I am still waiting for it to arrive. Looks like it is coming from China, you know the saying "a slow boat to China". Anyhoo....who knew you could have a love affair with a pair of scissors.
Joining Kim's Texture Tuesday today. I used Kim's KK_99 on both images.
