I've been ill the last couple of days, caught some kind of bug. It came on suddenly and I sure wish that it would leave suddenly too. Feeling a little better today but oh the cough that I've had sure makes me feel like a horse has just trampled all over my ribs and back. Let's not even talk about my throat.
Enough whining for now.
Here's what I really want to tell you about. Last week we made a day trip out of town to go see about purchasing some old wood. When I say old, I'm talking about right at 100 years old. We met a man that was tearing down his old home place, the home that he was born in. This man is now 80 years old. Talk about the history in this place, the history in each and every board.
The man was still in the process of tearing down the old home place. I didn't take a lot of photos but here is the huge stacks of reclaimed wood that we purchased. We stacked our trailer with as much that we could possibly haul. Can you believe that I even got a few pieces that still had bits and pieces of old wallpaper still attached. This is a DIY'er dream. I can see all kinds of projects using these reclaimed boards, can't you? What's the first thing you would build?
The old milk house/barn will also be torn down. We may go back to see if we want any of the wood from this also. Not sure yet since I have plenty to do projects with at the moment. Now all I need to do is to get busy.
I hope you have a wonderful day. Wish me luck on getting better because I don't have time to be ill.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
From the Heart,
