Sunday Stills-Self Portrait & Kid Interview

Cleaning the shed

I did not get very creative with this weeks photo challenge since I didn’t start snapping any shots until yesterday. The theme of the weekend was working around the house so that was what I had to work with….barn attire. Don’t let me fool you, I am by NO means one to dress up! I have one dress, it is black and I call it my funeral/wedding dress. I don’t wear nylons or heels, I’m ALL ABOUT comfort.

Feeding the hogs.

Below is a kid interview that has been going around face book. I thought it would to be fun to post here with this weeks photo theme.
