December 12

I came across this little barn in a nearby town. I think it looks Christmasy, with the red paint and the snow and ice. I like the sliding door and the little window.

For more barns, visit Tricia at Bluff Area Daily.

December 12

I went to a funeral home in a nearby town to pay respects for one of my residents who passed away earlier this week. Near the funeral home was an old church with this unique steeple. Most of the bells in churches around here aren't visible from the outside. I really like being able to see the bell, and I bet it's fun to hear it ring!

This barn belongs to my husbands step-dad. He farmed and drove truck all his life. He's now nearing 80 and still enjoys being out on the tractor. This barn doesn't get used like it did in the past, but there is still some hay stored in it. Do you see the ladder inside, leaning up against the loft?
It's a simple barn, but it's been used well over many years.

For more barns, stop over at Tricia at Bluff Area Daily.

December 2

My brother-in-law, Mark, had a pretty major back surgery yesterday and I sat at the hospital with my sister for the day. When I left the sun was setting, and I saw this beautiful old church from the parking ramp. What a pretty sight!
* Mark is doing well today and will be coming home Sunday.
