Miss Megan Mulder*!
WOOHOO, girl…that’s the way to start off your first day of commenting can I get a what what?! You’ve just won yourself a prize package in the form of a pair of hand-knitted Madonna Gloves (I’m serious with these games, people. Don’t think I’m not.)
* K, you already have a pair of madonna gloves.
It is indeed a barn.
A red barn. (not the one in the picture but one very similar in both size and shape minus the lower portion where the 2 windows are)
A red barn that is on the verge of landfill-dom unless someone rescues it because a big bad developer wants to build some condos. Thank goodness the demolition man is a friend of Curt’s…I mean the man walked right in his office and drove us out there!
A red barn that will be dismantled (Hello? Was that you offering to help? Pull on those Carharrts, baby, and grab a crow bar! Call me. No, seriously, call me.) before the end of February and then stored out at The Farm until we are able to build ‘er back up again.
So, uh…if ya don’t have anything to do next Saturday (the 11th), I’d love to make you a sandwich and some hot chocolate while you help me tear off siding!
The best part? It’s going to be my shop and Curt’s shop and a little apartment for long-term guests…(hint hint Ma and Pa Sebeck). It’s going to be a place where people come and stay for days on end…and wander in the woods and dig in the garden and watch movies on the backside of the barn. It’s where friends and family will come for New Year’s Eve every year with all their kids and we’ll have hay rides and coffee and candy apples and dogs. It’s going to be the “free vacation spot” where people will sign up for a week of relaxation…and we can all eat dinner together…or not…if you don’t want.
I might be crying a littlle bit right now. Maybe a little bit. ::sigh::
This will be the Friday post, as the boy and I are headed up North for the weekend with Mitch and Natalie. Y’all have a good weekend, and we’ll talk on Monday. I expect my inbox to be full of folks hankerin’ for a little physical labor next Saturday! You get first dibs on guest space!
