Bucking the Trend

I've come to the conclusion that not many people do Blog posts on the weekends. Not the bloggers on my "most read" list anyway.

I guess they have lives.

I usually do, too. Most weekends are spent at the WV place. But this weekend is different. Hubby is off to a business convention in Long Beach, California for a few days. And here I am, in Maryland, with not much to do...

So I am bucking the trend of no weekend blog posting and telling you, and showing you, how I spent my last summer Friday.

I did not pick apples. But isn't this a neat shot?

Um, I didn't pick a bunch of tiny little pumpkins to line up on a fence either. I just couldn't resist the lure of a roadside produce market.

I didn't buy a goat. Or even pet a goat. I just took pictures of a goat. Mainly because he was kind enough to pose for me.

Tired of trying to guess?

I drove to Lancaster, Pennsylvania for the day. I did a little shopping, but mostly I stalked Amish people who don't like to get their pictures taken, and took some pictures. Rude, I know. But I enjoyed it. And that's what matters in my world.

I did it from sort of far away, which is why you don't see crisp, clear focus. But with a little tweaking, I think some of the images are sort of cool.

Here's one of the shots I got of a family working the field. I used "plow" in the picture title, but I don't think they are plowing.

If I knew anything at all about farming, I might be able to guess. But I don't. So I can't explain why they need this big-ass wagon of hay. They didn't appear to be baling the hay...

This is just a barn shot. I liked the contrast of the green grass, brown corn and white barn. Too bad the sky was so overcast.

This is the last shot I'll post here. It was getting dark, so I had to boost the light a bit. To me, it is obviously Photoshopped. But I still like the effect. If you want the see the other images, go to my Flickr page for the day.

Enjoy your Sunday!


  1. Why didn't you tell me you were home alone all weekend? We could've done something!

    Looks like you had fun in Lancaster. Cool goat!

  2. I was only alone today. I took Dad to the airport at 5:30 AM. I did think about calling you, but I got sort of wrapped up in cooking and quilting. Sorry. More on cooking later. (-:


Please say something...
