Barn, Belgian beer and Brussel sprouts.

.

We were back in the barn this weekend and ran the new heat pump for the first time. It’s a big space so it took a while to warm up… but the building held the set temperature all day, which means all our stuff and seal each and every god damn gap insulation work…

Worked.

But there were still a few more windows to trim and that’s when things went downhill.

There was sputtering, mumbling, cursing and okay…. small pieces of wood may or may not have been flung across the room.

.

.

When the wood started flying? I knew it was time for a distraction… so I trudged down to our crap filled underground nightmare basement and retrieved a treasure we purchased a few years ago.

A neon bar sign from the Ommegang brewery in New York. We stumbled on them when we visited the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and fell in love with their Belgians.

If you’re ever in the area, check out their tasting room in the old barn… and if you’re visiting this time of year? Try my favorite.

There’s a tavern in Brussels famous for it’s pigeon racing?

Sounds like my kind of place.

And speaking of Brussels…

When you live across the street from an organic vegetable farmer?

You never know what will show up on your doorstep in the morning.

  1. You know I know this barn is continuous fodder for you but I am quite envious that you not only have this extra space (or will at some point when it’s finished) and a hubby who can do such beautiful work! Never mind the shelf on the door. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I wanted to ask you something about that, so I emailed you via your contact page. Not sure where that message ends up, maybe look for it? I think my own spouse is very close to purchasing a spot in the country and if that happens, lord help me… ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It really is wonderful, donโ€™t get me wrong… I love it. But damn, when good blog fodder presents itself I have to go with the flow. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I canโ€™t seem to find the messages on my phone app, will check next time I boot up my pc.
