Grandma Barb’s This and That

One more early morning picture

Good morning everyone.  At least it's still morning here.  Sorry I haven't been around to visit the last few days.  I've been busy getting mom settled in her new apartment.  I moved her to her apartment from the nursing home on Friday and have been spending time with her while she gets settled in.  Last night I went to a fun Super Bowl Party.

Anyway here is one more early morning shot of a barn.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week.
Until Next Time

Beautiful early morning light!
I'm a nurse in a nursing home and I know that's a hard change to make. I hope she settles in well and is happy there.

That is a beautiful farm Barb. I like how the early sunrise is reflecting on the livestock trailer. I hope your mother settles in well in her new apartment.

Hi Barb,
Best wishes to your mom in her new apartment. I hope she gets settled and is very happy in her new home.

Love the early morning barn pic. It looks cold but refreshing. Glad you went to a fun SuperBowl party.

Thank you for the well wishes. I am a bit better from the flu but have pleurisy now. Have to rest and take it easy for a bit longer. I am not very good at that part.
LOL
Have a great week.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

So pretty! I love the barn in the early morning light.

Aren't those some happy words? "moving Mom into an apartment from the nursing home"....I wonder how many people get to do that nowadays. It didn't ever used to happen...if you were put there, you stayed there. My mother in law was in the nursing home after falling and breaking her hip for a year and a half...then at 89, she moved back into an apartment. Amazing.

Great shots of the barns...so different from what I see here in Texas!

Tricia Hays said...

Wonderful early morning 'glow' on this farm, esp on the horse trailer!

Thank you so much for joining =)

Annmarie Pipa said...

your photos actually make me want to get up early!

Small City Scenes said...

Carole M. said...

Hi Barb, the light in those photos is super! The images are beautiful! I love the snow photos.

Carletta said...

The sun glistening off that trailer promises a new day dawning!
Hope your Mom's move is pleasant for her.

EG CameraGirl said...

Glad to hear your mom is feeling well enough to move out of the nursing home.

This farm is so beautiful in this light!

Nancy Claeys said...

Lovely image Barb --

I hope mom is happy in her new digs.

Bless your heart. xo

Nancy said...

Now that is a true midwestern farm, Barb. Lovely winter shot. I hope your mom adjusts to her new home quickly. God bless her and you.

Deanna said...

The snow is the icing on the cake with this farm. Beautiful!

We haven't had any pets for about 7 years. We had my two cats that passed at age 16 and 18. They were bro and sis. I had them fixed and I didn't want kittens. Duchess is a good girl.

What photo editing site do you use? I was going to do some thrifty fashion for today but Photobucket has upgraded to a bad offering for free now, trying to get me to pay. Upsetting. So I tossed that stocking post together and decided to lick my wounds and ask questions.

Have a grand day! ♥

Yamada Miyako said...

Dearest Barb,
Oh, we haven't had or blessed with (? hehe) these beautiful pile of snow fall yet or maybe not this winter. I feel like not fair feeling cold without them(^^;)

I hope your mother feels cozy with her new place♡♡♡ My 88 year old father is in the old-people's care home having dementia. I've visited today and happy to see him doing at least physically well at the moment.

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Nice set of early morning shots- I like the light reflecting gold. I hope your mom does well in her new home.

Bilancia Designs said...

Lovely photos as always...
I'm glad things are going well with your mom.
I'm so happy to hear she is settling in to her apartment.
You're a wonderful daughter... :)
I hope you're doing well.
I think of you often...
I'm crazy busy with weddings right now and sometimes I feel like i'm in an episode of Bridezilla! hahaha
Sending you hugs.
Stay warm!
Love, Lisa xoxo

Love seeing farms on snowy mornings with just a bit of light shining.

Hope the apartment works well for your mother. It's such a relief to get an elderly parent--or in my case sister--settled into a place that's safe and relatively independent. My sister is only 10 minutes from me so it makes caregiving a lot easier and less stressful. Hope you find the same situation, Barb.

Beautiful pictures, so nice light shines in the buildings.
Good Thursday Marit.

Renae at simple sequins said...

hi Barb! I just have fun with my new Buddy and it's "continual shots" option. Thought I'd share the joy. hahahahaha.

My Maine Blog said...

Beautiful country setting and the natural light is so perfect. I love the snow and the barns...I love the light in the early morning it's such a special time.

Thank you Barb for all of your lovely comments I really love making new friends here and I'm so glad you found me...or did I find you? hahaha...See this is what happens when you get old and feeble. Have a great day.

Carol said...

Great photos! Marvelous light!

Linda said...
