I wanted to give a shout out to Patrice at Everyday Rurality.  She is having a good ol' fashioned barn party, and who doesn't love one of those!  Stop by as soon as you can and get in on all the fun.  Here is the "poop" as we say down on the farm:

You're Invited
What:A Barn Party at Everyday Ruralty
When:October 16- 23 
Where:Online
Why:To celebrate my 4 month Blog-a-versary (10-16-10)

     I have said before that I love my followers. I do! Big hugs! I also enjoy meeting new people. One of the reasons I started this blog was to share my country life with others. I would love to be able to physically have this event on our farm, but I cannot do it in person right now. Indulge me! This will be fun online.
     I would like you to have a picture of this event in your minds before you join in the festivities. I love fall. The trees are beginning to turn colors. Imagine a large pasture. Yup! Check! We got it! Imagine that I have set several long tables end to end in  that pasture and draped them with old quilts. Cool! We can handle that! Now picture straw bales placed around the tables as benches. There are pumpkins, candles and fall mums decorating the tables. Sounds pretty! Further this picture by envisioning six very nosey horses on the other side of the fence watching as all of us as we "meet and greet." Why can't the horses meet and greet? Neigh-and eat!
 
 
1. Who would you bring with you? (You don't have to use your real names if you wish.)
  All my best girlfriends who I do not get to see nearly enough, so you may have to scooch two tables together for me!

2. What will you wear to the party? (Remember, it's 60's in the daytime and 40's at night.)
What else but jeans, a turtleneck and a sweatshirt?  Maybe a light jacket or vest! 

3. What would you most like to see on my farm?
 Everything!  We all do what we do, but we usually do it a bit differently.  From ground to house I would lvoe to see it all!

4. What dish would you bring since it's pot luck?(Optional: You can post a recipe or photos of a dish if you'd like.) Hmmmmm...... Besides a great cooler of beverages, I might say graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate!

5. What game or activity would you like to do during our get together?
I'm not much on games, but I would love to get to know everyone.  Maybe a scavenger hunt.  Those are always fun on the farm!
 
 
Have fun with this by clicking on the big barn photo at the top of my page, and thanks to Patricia for being such a great host!
