Is the Barn On Fire?

I recently posted that we are moving to Murray, KY, to be close to our daughter and SIL who are relocating there with new jobs. I'm really not that familiar with Kentucky so I have much to learn about living in Kentucky.

For instance, I was driving to Murray one day in our home search and I passed the barn below and for a few seconds, thought it was on fire. Take a look and see what you think!


Remember, I didn't grow up in Kentucky or anywhere where tobacco is grown! So a smoking barn means fire to me. Ok, so it wasn't a barn on fire but instead they were smoking tobacco in the barn. It is a pretty cool picture and the tobacco didn't stink like cigarettes. 

You know, I don't smoke or approve of it, but the tobacco barns were pretty amazing! Maybe I'll take more pictures of tobacco barns in Kentucky. Take care - Judy.

We are Moving - My Ole Kentucky Home

My family has had many changes over the past few months so my blogging has been next to nothing. We sold our house in Missouri several months ago and put every in storage thinking we would buy a new home this past spring or summer. Then my father had a terrible fall at his home in southern Illinois; so I have been there since the last of April.

Next our daughter and SIL decided to make job changes and move to Kentucky. So of course, we thought we should make plans to move to Kentucky when time permitted. Knowing my father's care would come first, we thought we could buy a home in Kentucky and go there on the weekends since it is only 1.5 hours from my Dad's home.

After much searching, we did find a home in Murray, KY that we felt could work for both of us. We wanted to downsize since we no longer need four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. I was tired of the constant cleaning that goes along with a bigger house. So here it is:



It is smaller than our last house and older but it has a great yard plus three acres that our grandson's will enjoy. I'm glad I'm not the one who will mow the yard! What really was appealing for my husband was the workshop behind the house. It has plenty of storage for our boat and his hunting equipment.

Sadly my father passed away on September 25 at age 93. He had a wonderful life and was a great Father, Grandfather, and Great Grandfather. He will be missed by all of us.

Now it looks like I will be moving to Murray full time to help with my grandsons especially the 5 year old who will be in daycare for half a day.

In addition to helping with the grands, we will be doing updates to the house. I should have lots to blog about especially the new kitchen going in.

Take care - Judy.
