Friday the 13th Adventure

After a day at work that consisted of chaperoning and shuttling high school boys to and from the Farm Show site, developing a migraine while working outside in the high humidity and 100+ degree temps, and then ending the day painting booth lines on the ground in the poring rain, I was tired, and smelly to say the least.

During the month of July I’m working 7 days a week in order to get ready for the Four State Farm Show, so everyday feels like a Monday for the time being, and my social life is waiting patiently for me to return sometime in August. Yesterday being no different, I planned on spending my Friday evening using my entire hot water tank for a shower, and then settling in front of the t.v. for a Adams Family movie marathon to match my “Cousin It” themed painted fingernails.

Somehow two hours after getting off work I found myself running down a dirt road in Kansas, camera in hand, chasing sunsets in my “Kiss me I’m a Cowboy” shirt, sweatpants, and flip-flops covered in fish, with nothing but soybean and corn fields for as far as I could see.

As “Achy Breaky Heart” blared from the radio of my Pontiac Vibe, it occurred to me that I lead a very random life, and you know what? I’m completely and totally, absolutely head-over-heels in love with it.

Here are some shots from my spontaneous Friday the 13th photo trip around Middle-of-Corn, KS.

I love this church, it’s the kind of church I’ve always pictured getting married in someday. I love it’s haunting, mysterious look and that it’s completely surrounded by farm land.

I call my new home “Middle-of-Corn, KS” for a reason. I spent my Friday the 13th with visions of Children of the Corn dancing in my head as I tromped through corn fields.

In my opinion if they are going to actually go to the trouble to put one of these signs up, they need one about every two miles here in Kansas.

We need rain badly… and lots of it.

Anyone who knows how tall sunflowers are, and how short I really am should appreciate the effort it took to capture this

Dusk sets in for these two little sunflowers in a soybean field

Something straight out of a Hallmark Original movie

Until next time…
