Eating in a Barn


                                             We wait sadly for the storms to move in.

The long awaited peaceful week did not turn out quite the relaxing “sit about” I expected. The first thing was dead phone lines. Everything worked but the three handset phones. ALL lights and connections were working. Three handsets don’t all quit at once! So use your imagination a bit and how my week went with ATT will be clear. I finally got phones to working at 9 pm on Thursday night.

Perfect example of  ATT that will not sync with Word. Stupid and irritating!


I still had some “fun” things on the table, but gradually all but one got marked off. I did spot this guy on a quick trip to post office and brought him home with me. He has spent the rest of the week fighting the rain that also came. Yesterday the rains were torrential in nature, and the thunder was so bad Miss B had to wear her Thundershirt for most of the day.



It cleared in the afternoon which was good since we had reservations for a Roswitha’s Schnitzelbank, a German restaurant that serves meals in a barn that we have wanted to visit for five years. It is finished inside and civilized; you don’t eat in a grain box! Roswitha is a German who learned to cook in Western Germany, Rhineland-Pfalz with her family. The food was very good, and we had Rouladen and Schnitzel followed by a piece of shared German Chocolate cake, not the Duncan Hines variety. On the ride out, we noted some maple trees turning and a flaming bunch of sumac near the highway. It seems too soon to be seeing color changes.





This morning about 4 am we had another round of thunderstorms. The scarecrow got pushed over as did the wheelbarrow and the birdhouses. One of my dark leafed large plants got completely broken. Ah, the joys of weather. I am wondering what autumn will bring and if it will come early. It is heard of to have 8 or more inches of rain in August! But I guess I had better just concentrate on getting through the next week and let autumn come as she will.

It sounds like even though the weather was not cooperative, you had a nice weekend.

I forgot to mention--Biscuit looks quite comfy. I assume that every couch and every loveseat is HERS, right? ;)

The barn meal sounds delightful.
I hope the weather behaves more considerately this week.

Dinner sounds wonderful! We have a German restaurant here in Atlanta called Kurt's, that has been around for decades. Great food, though not served in a renovated barn. I bet the ambiance was terrific.
