a simple church

Church

I went through my files and found this cute simple church that was taken on our way down to Texas at the end of December 2012.  I don't recall where this was, I only know it is definitely south of us.

Linking with InSPIREd Sunday.

On Valentines day this year on our way to eat we passed this stone fence and right away I thought of TexWisGirl's meme.  I haven't been doing a lot of memes lately but thought I'd join today.

Linking with Good Fences.

On valentines day Mr and I went out for dinner, and instead of driving straight there we decided to take the back roads to get to the restaurant, and came upon this church going through one of the towns along the way.

giving a shout out

Traci over at Traci Thorson Photography just embarked on an amazing adventure, and I'm so happy for her.  I finally got to meet Traci this past fall at Anne Marie's Barn Sale, I have been reading her blog for some time now.  She lives in Illinios and those who have been reading my blog for sometime know that I moved from Illinois to Southwest Wisconsin over 2 years ago.  So, Illinois blogs grab my interest, and tho I love living where I live, Illinois will always tug at my heart.

Snowy branches

Traci and Anne Marie are in a book called Pieography: Where Pie Meets Biography.  Traci did the photography for the book and as always with Traci's photos they are AMAZING!!!!!  Go on and check it out, I already ordered my copy and can't wait to get it.

So, I'm giving a Shout Out for Traci and Anne Marie!

 


maybe this post will help you cool off a bit...

Well it's hot and everyone knows it's hot...So, I'm playing along with Di over at The Blue Ridge Gal, trying to cool off some.  Now, I know that some of you are not wanting winter to come and I have to say I'm not either...But, I need some relief from the heat.  Maybe not to the extreme of the photo below.

Snow blade

Jim and I...well mostly Jim did...shoveled off our pond.  It's nice to sit and listen to the sounds of the woods no matter if it's summer or winter.

Sitting back

Snow shoeing is something that Jim and I enjoy doing in the winter.  I am looking forward to doing it again.

Trails

Now, didn't this give you a bit of relief from the heat or did it just make you dread the thought that winter is just around the corner?
