NW Wisconsin Barns - Barns and Fences

Neighborhood Barn

I grew up with a sense of needing to be productive.

Yesterday reminded me of something a friend once told me:

Her husband had come home and asked her what she'd done all day.
She had replied,
'I don't know,
But it took me all day to do it! '

and that was my day YESTERDAY!
Let's hope there's improvement today.

And a photo taken last November.

i washed with coffee today. yummy soap scent. you are a soap miracle worker. ( :

i love that saying - the hubby will come home & i always wonder if he see what i have done during the day?? i know i don't really go to work but i deserve a paycheck all the same. i wonder how i can work that out??! talk to the government about paychecks for men & women that work from home?!

Do you think perhaps we got that work ethic from our parents and more so from our grandparents? I, too, feel that I need to do something important every day and always have that to do list.

I just love old barns and the structures around them. These are great photos. I love the one of the window opening in the stone foundation. Wonderful photos!

I love old barns. You have some great photos here! I have had days like that, too. You turn around and wonder where the day went. I think, for me, being raised on a farm meant that I did not have the luxury of doing nothing...and I am still not comfortable-doing nothing. I hate it when someone walks in the house and "catches me" sitting. I feel guilty- lol xo Diana

Awesome barn photos. Here's a Muffy quote for you: "Since I've retired I have all day to do nothing, and some days I don't even get that done!"
Some days are like that!!!

Rose said...

Love these photos...love the different views of the barn.

Chatty Crone said...

You know that is a good way of putting things - I was raised to be productive too - I love to work and keep busy - not struggle - but I don't mind working. sandie

Indeed, sometimes you have to be unproductive to see how productive you've been♪ Lovely pics..Have a wonder filled week! http://lauriekazmierczak.com/amazing-grace/

Anything that is old and still standing is great for photos. I love these barns.

I'm in barn adoration mode on here. Oh to have that many lovelies around to shoot...they would have to shoo me away.

Great barn and fence presentation.

Terri Buster said...

I would be hard pressed the last couple of days to day I had accomplished anything except for genealogy work...I did pull out the boxes of Christmas decorations this evening, and that's as far as I got with that. LOL!
