Random Five Friday



This cabin, built shortly after the land was purchased in 1796, remains intact in our tiny hamlet of Smalltownland.  

Nancy is taking a hiatus from the Random Five Friday hostess duties, but I am addicted to the randomness of it all.  Thus, I shall press on!  

If you are tired of hearing, "What Does the Fox Say?", then just listen to the farmer......

I admit that I don't like pumpkin flavored anything.  I believe I am in the minority here.

Next week the weather forecast is calling for rain, some snow, and even a chance of ice.  It is way too early for this kind of nonsense.

Be well, my friends.....

  2. I love the cabin - it's a treasure! I'm sick of the Fox :) The farmer video was funny and true.
    I'm not a fan of pumpkin either. I'm more into the peppermint that shows up at Christmas!

  3. I did a random too today -- not sure how long the meme will remain on hiatus. Lol.
    We were looking at rain/snow mix next week, but they removed it for now. Not trusting at this point.
    Have a great weekend Michelle!

  4. So far I have burnt firewood at the same rate as I did in the coldest winter so it is looking to be a cold one but they can change quickly.

  9. I can recall a family vacay when I was young back in the 60's and walking through a log cabin. I was in awe.

  14. my husband doesn't like pumpkin either. In BC we'd call these Homesteaders...my Paternal grandparents immigrated from Norway to Duluth then westward to a tiny parcel of land in an even tinier hamlet, their (and all the others) log cabin then addition looked remarkably like this one...I love the shadow.

  15. Love the cabin picture. Most likely Im appreciating how they put it together since we have been cutting burnt logs down to do the same!

    Hearing a Fox "scream" is scary. And i think they know it...

  16. Oh so nice. This cabin.

    I see down the road a mile or two, One similar to this beauty.

    Only it is a total wreck this one I mention. Should be torn down.

  19. well, no wonder I couldn't get on nancy's random five today! Everyone needs a break now and again.
    I'm not nuts about pumpkin either.

  20. I love that cabin!! I've always dreamed of having one. I'm with you on the pumpkin flavored stuff.. the exceptions are real pumpkin pie and real pumpkin muffins or bread.. no fake flavoring! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  21. It does my heart good to see structures that old that are still standing.
    Snow..wow, it is way early for that...perhaps a sign of what winter will bring. xo

  22. I don't care for pumpkin that much either! One piece of pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving is more than enough for the entire year. And the pumpkin flavored coffee....no thanks. You are not alone!!

  23. What a gorgeous picture, Michelle. Not only are you great with the camera, you always find such treasures to photograph.

  24. I am not a big fan of pumpkin either. I did find one place that does make a good pie but I will usually have one small piece.

  25. Roasted pumpkin seeds... yum! Now that cabin is the grand prize... great find.

  27. What a great picture, and such a neat piece of history. We are scambling here this weekend to get all of the leaves up..we may see a 'sloppy mix' on Monday night. I agree, far too early!

  28. Up here ---
    Long weekend of gettin' wood in.
    Love those shadows lurking about those wooden walls.

  29. Cool cabin, how neat that it's still standing and so well preserved.
    I had never heard What Does the Fox say until a couple of weeks ago (wish I still hadn't heard it). The Farmer one was funny.
    Seriously nothing pumpkin flavored...I love the Fluffy, No Bake Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Rolls are yummy too.

  31. Pumpkin is tops on my list at this time of the year. It's not my first pick in other seasons....but in the Fall, it satisfy's my taste buds..
    Great photo..

  32. This cabin is so pretty in all the simplicity . sometimes the most simple things are just what we need! When I was years old, we had this little cabin up in the Northern Lappland, with the cute little stove, that warmed up the one room cabin . reindeers were peeking inside in the mornings - thank you for bringing up these happy childhood memories :)

  33. Wonderful photo of a well preserved piece of history.

  34. I'm more and more convinced that photos using light stand head and shoulders above the normal shot no matter how good it is. Great work.
