This old stone barn is what greets us when we drive into our town. I don't know anything about its history; I have no idea when it was built, but it belongs to a small horse farm. Sometimes they walk the horses on the bicycle route next to our garden and as soon as I start hearing a horse's walk in the distance, it has some kind of soothing effect. Then the horse appears from behind the trees and I find myself gazing at it in awe until it disappears again.
How was your weekend? As I said in my Saturday post, we went into the city to go to the library. As I'm still reading the books I borrowed the last time we went, I got two films and watched them this weekend: Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008) by Woody Allen and Out of Africa (1985) by Sydney Pollack. I hadn't seen the former and absolutely loved it. It's been awhile since I watched the latter. The African scenery took my breath away and I had almost forgotten how good Meryl Streep and Robert Redford play their roles. In the city we also walked around and enjoyed refreshment outdoors while people watching. The city was full of life but the pace of people was unhurried; there was no stress. It was a beautiful autumn day.
