Self Barn Portrait

 It's a Barn Charm Monday again!  I have a few sitting in one of my files.  This first is fairly recent...that is, last week.  You can see my reflection here.  I DID take the photo from inside the truck, and I think the self-portrait effect really sets it off.  They were harvesting apples when I was driving by this and I did not want to stop traffic for a better shot.  I figured it was either going to turn out or not.  As it turns out, I managed to save it.

Chloe made it through her surgery with flying colors!  It took forever, it seemed, to finally get her in, but when she did go in, it took hardly any time at all.  She was done quickly and we were heading home.  Chloe who cried a lot last time, but hardly cried, if at all, this time!  She was in very good spirits and she had a really good day.

I hope you'll click on over to my photo site to see a recent photo of how many Chloes it SEEMS like we have!

Also, visit Barn Charms!  The building below, I THINK, is an old packing house, but I don't know for sure.
I could use a few more days of weekend.  This being "a parent" stuff isn't easy.  Especially the part where Chloe goes at 100 mph for hours on end.

I go back to work tomorrow.  I'll be picking up where the other sub left off.  It may sound odd, but it seems like this is my class at times.  After last week, it seemed like things were falling into place, we'll see if that remains the case.  I have some grades to catch up on, since Thursday and Friday the kids were working to finish an essay.  So I'll be setting in on grading those in the morning!

The reflection add a nice dimension to the shot, I like the contrast in the monochrome.

I love both of these...we have a granddaughter and she goes a hundred miles an hour, too. That is when I understnad why you have kids when they are young!
