Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

Farmer Marvin's Big Barn

 This morning when I walked it was 25 degrees, cloudy, and windy.
Sunrise 7:22
Walking Steps 13,378

Walked over to the library first and dropped a book down the slot.
Then continued through town and up and down the side streets.
Then up around the cemetery on the hill.
Went down to see if the girls got hay in the barnyard,
and sure enough they did.😀
Farmer Marvin takes good care of them.

Then I headed on over to Farmer Marvin's big new barn.

The little part of the building is the office.  I took a peek inside.
 (FM told me to take a look)

Walked down the left side of the barn.

And turned around when I got here.

On the other side of the barn I got to see the bulls.
The two with their heads out of the fence both sniffed my hand
and then licked it. Their tongues are very rough.

Looking down the right side of the barn.

It is quite a barn and nice to see it up close.

Left the barn and walked around the cemetery a couple times.
Then over to the ball park and walked that loop a couple of times too.
Back to the other cemetery and around it once.

Very quiet around town on this early Saturday morning,
didn't see anyone else out.

🥾    ☁️    💨    🐄    

We went to the Dollar General but not the one in town today.
The cold cases and freezers are still broken
so we went to the one in McHenry which is about 6 miles down the road.

Got a load of laundry going and did some house chores,
had lunch and then I knitted.
Working on the pillow.
It has to be 40 inches long and I have only 10 inches finished.

Here are the color weave-its I'm making for the next baby blanket for April.

It stayed cold and windy but we did see the sun.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Saturday

GrannyM and Ginny - The flying birds are geese. I have never seen a swan around here though I'd love to.  Once in a while I do see a heron.

Anni - It took Marilyn 6 months to make the quilt.
The deer weren't chasing each other, but just all hanging out together in one big herd.

I like your blanket colors. Wow, that is some barn. Too good for just the animals, ha ha! It is the fanciest barn I have ever seen.

Great to see Farmer Marvin's cattle so well taken care of. I feel awful when I see cows standing ankle deep in mud.

Lots of neat photos of Farmer Marvin’s big barn and the cows. Now I am curious. What is Farmer Marvin's plan for the cows? Is it dairy?

Ann said...

Wow, that barn is very impressive.
Love the colors for your new baby blanket.

If cattle could talk, what would they say? Something mooooving no doubt.

God bless.

What a nice big barn and a fine office, too. I'm sure it is a blessing for Farmer Marvin, not to mention the animals.
