If you live in the country….
…..you probably know someone with an old barn.
Or someone who is about to tear down a barn.
Or someone who has stacks of barn wood or barn doors or barn ladders or barn troughs…..
…..just lying around.
Usually next to the spare washing machine parts.
In our county….any one who is ever trying to get rid of something calls us.
Usually it’s something no one else wants….like old windows or old doors or barn ladders or spools or old tires.
Or maybe some of you.
Good thing I’m the only one in this conversation who lives here. 🙂
They shake their heads and shrug their shoulders and sometimes they ask me what I’m going to do with it and sometimes not.
Mostly they roll their eyes and sigh and tell me I can have the junk if I stop by and pick it up.
And then the conversation at our house goes something like this:
Me: (wearing a super cute outfit and extra red lipstick) Is there any way you could stop on the way home and pick up some stuff for me?
Husband: (pausing with a potential inward sigh) Will I need the truck?
Me: Oh….maybe….umm…..I mean it’s just a few things.
Me: (nonchalantly) A barn ladder and some other barn stuff.
Him: (without missing a beat) No problem. I’ll load it after work and bring it home at put it in the building.
Me: Don’t you even want to know what I’m going to do with it.
Me: Seriously? You don’t even want to know? Why?
Him: Because that’s one conversation away from a project. 🙂
He knows me so well this incredibly patient and understanding handsome man of mine.
Good thing this isn’t his first barn wood rodeo.
Good thing his truck can carry junk from one end of the county to the other.
And good thing his sparkling brown eyes were twinkling at me…..because truly…..we all know that project conversation….
…..is just around the corner. 🙂
PS Shhhhh……let’s keep this just between us…..but don’t you think the ladder would look amazing like this?
