When you drive through the country side you often see red or white barns. We have a pink barn! We are in mid paint and after scraping the barn we needed to get a coat of primer on it. After consulting with Sherwin Williams (got a discount on the paint by being a farm bureau member) they suggested a tinted color in the same family as our new barn red color. It may be in the same family but it sure is not red. Campbell likes the color and I have adjusted to all the looks as cars drive by slow to look at the old pink barn. Read Matt's Column to learn more about his take on our barn. I do promise if the weather ever holds up it will be red....I think Rain Rain Go Away, so my barn will not look this way.

Those who know me know that I am full of ideas...usually rediculous ones. I had a bunch of old old wood covered in hay chaf up in the hay. I thought it was perfect to make a long table that we could put out in the pasture and use for gatherings. Everyone was skeptical but it was a fun process and the finished product is just what I had imagined. We now have outdoor dining for 10-12 people.
I had several helpers with this project. Project manager was Grandpa Cathers. I think you will recognize the assistants.
My idea behind this table is through Local Flavor Foods prepare wonderful meals and dine out in the field. From Farm to Table......sounds like fun to me. My first dinning experience will be in July with the Gourmet Girlies I will keep you posted.
