Spring? Spring?! Spring! – Well, not quite yet…

I was thinking today of how beautiful it is here and how winter is supposed to return in just a few hours and be with us for the rest of the week.  It was sweatshirt weather today and will, likely, be snowing by tomorrow night and rainy and nasty tonight and tomorrow.  So, I went to buy groceries today at good old Wal-Mart.  To and from, I had my trusty camera and photographed some of the scenery for you all.  Not beautiful, yet, but…it’s on its way!


Here is our start, my house, from across the street.


Look! The sun glinting off the windshields of cars not covered in ice and snow!


Ah, but the vestiges of the mess are still apparent, even right across the parking lot.


I wanted you to see the fine county roads we have to travel on. I took this right before I was bounced three times in a row!


I think that I shall never see…


This is gorgeous in the late fall and in the winter deep snow.


If I remember Miss Hopeful Hugger, you love horses, yes?!


There are a myriad of houses on route. This one is new? and I have never seen it before. Does look like a modular, doesn’t it?


This is the bigger grandiose style of home.


This is a church that was sold and bought and transformed into a home.


For those who follow, this is the library I am always talking about. I help support the purchase of new books through my Amazon Sales. Over 1,000 books, most of which will benefit the library greatly, even if you buy them from far away!

Enjoy!  Namaste,

    I was waiting for a photo of Wal-Mart. Scott . . . you disappoint.

      I did take one of someone in the parking lot. Thought she was in PJs, but I think they were just “Hello Kitty” pants.

      Hey, go to my post for tomorrow. It is on my main page now.
      I just took care of your need for a Wal-Mart Fix.

    I thought we were done with winter, but it’s supposed to return here, too, with a big storm tonight. I hope it misses us.

    I loved your photo journey. Enjoy your short term respite and then bundle up!

    Great series of photos, Scott. I love spring and fall–both periods of change. I’m loving the longer days and extra light, and every now and then it almost feels warm. Can’t wait to see those first buds appear!


  • thehappyhugger  On February 26, 2013 at 11:35 am

    I found your pictures so interesting, Scott. I wonder what it feels like to live in a house that was previously a church? You seem to have lots of wide unbuilt up space in your area. Thanks so much for sharing this with us and of course now I know what your library looks like 🙂

    Many beautiful pictures. I especially liked the tree 23.jpg …


    • kindredspirit23  On February 26, 2013 at 10:26 am

      I sorta thought you would like that tree. Really. I could see you doing a post on that tree…a good post.


      • bert0001  On February 26, 2013 at 11:40 am

        Something is brewing … 🙂


        • kindredspirit23  On February 26, 2013 at 9:54 pm

          We shall see. Today was not nearly as nice. It has rained almost non-stop for about 16 hours.


        • bert0001  On February 27, 2013 at 12:06 pm

          that happens. our weekend snow has melted, but it still close to 0 C and a very cold wind blows everything stonecold.


        • kindredspirit23  On February 27, 2013 at 6:54 pm

          I know that feeling.


  • Marisa  On February 26, 2013 at 1:52 am

    Thank you for sharing some very familiar sights:) I thoroughly enjoyed the trip down memory lane!

    i’m jealous about the weather and wholly cow a church home?!


    • kindredspirit23  On February 26, 2013 at 12:58 am

      Yeah, I kinda liked that back when it was a church.


      • behindthemaskofabuse  On February 26, 2013 at 1:12 am

        did you?


        • kindredspirit23  On February 26, 2013 at 10:25 am

          Well, I thought it would be cool to live there. When the guy bought it and did that I thought, “Wow! That’s what I would have done.”
          🙂 I wasn’t sure what the “did you?” referred to.


        • behindthemaskofabuse  On February 26, 2013 at 12:12 pm

          ohh i thought you liked it as a church not a house.

          oh man i would love a tour through the church house!


Feel free to say something; I look forward to it!
