Break Time

It’s lunch break before getting back to my case questions for this week. While I was using the other half of the capicola I bought yesterday at Sofo Foods, our Italian market and the best source for soup-making prosciutto ends in three states, well, the best source known between my Dad, Brother and me, I came up with the hypothetical company for my final paper. Remember that left brain/right brain stuff a couple weeks ago? I accept that I’m totally left brained. I was struggling with trying to figure out what I’d need to research and how the heck will I do it and how will I write 15 pages about setting up a service desk?? When I came up with a hypothetical company and why it needed a new service desk, BAM! What I’d need and where to look for information became clear in my head. I create just fine when there is a reason to create. I even have a layout in my head of what the service desk office will look like.

My Italian Soul Food
sweet capicola and sliced asiago on Italian

I also got really great news about that capicola sandwich. 2 ounces of capicola, an ounce of asiago and a 2 ounce Italian roll is well within my calorie and fat allowance for lunch and well within my Weight Watchers point allowance. Add a sliced bell pepper and some organic carrots and it was tasty, really tasty, and filling. Fat and calorie-wise I could have a capicola sandwich for lunch every day. Of course, the salt from lunch every day will have me in blood pressure trouble and while I love it, capicola and asiago are not cheap! Think I’ll stick to it as a treat!

Barn Charm

One more new meme this week, then I’m going to enjoy the ones I do and not add more. But this one is very me. I take photos of barns all the time when we railfan. Bluff Area Daily hosts Barn Charm. The blog is based in Missouri and Barn Charm welcomes a look at barns from all over! Pretty cool! So this week, I’m going to start with my very favorite local barn.

Perrysburg, Ohio

I took this one a few years ago, back when I could still walk out into the field by the barn to get this shot. It was to take a picture of the water tower, but I just love the barn! Maybe it’s because it’s green, or the composition with the water tower. Semesters when I have on-campus classes, I drive by this barn every class day.

Thanks for looking at my barn! To see more barns, click the Barn Charm icon!

That is a great looking barn! I think it is only the second green one I've seen. Thanks so much for your visit and sweet comment at my blog. Have a good week!

Love the color green. Since doing barn charm I've come across a few colors other than the usual red ones.

I have to agree with everyone else, the green barn is super!! I'm not a green person, but I love this shade and lime. Barns is a popular choice for photography. Wonder why??? Can't wait to see more. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

This barn is so very interesting (and not because it's green! I have seen quite a few that I'm surprised it is considered an unusual colour) but I am intrigued by the lack of windows except for that tiny cutout star and I really like the logo - is that a scythe? I also like what looks like a lattice 'porch'.

Genie said...

WOW!!! A green barn. I have never seen one of these out here in our county. I love it. Unusual and pretty.genie

Carole said...

That is a great barn, and one of a different color. I think I've only seen one or two green barns around my area and they're faded. lol

Nice shot. :-)
