Random Five Friday


water tower in Smalltownland 

Spring brings strange bouts of weather and this week was no exception.  A hard freeze, bitterly cold temps, and gloomy skies mixed with warm weather at times.  

Alternative housing always interests me, but I am afraid this house would be too small for me.  And, quite frankly, I think the price tag was too big.  After reading the comments section, other people did as well.  

The daughter of the house hit a home run last night during their middle school softball game :)  

The son of the house is on the hunt for the elusive turkey.  I have no doubt he will be successful this weekend.  

Ever read a novel so deeply that you pictured it all  vividly in your mind, even the food?  Click here to get one photographer's idea on what food looks like in famous novels.

  1. This weather has us all guessing, doesn't it? Perhaps Winter will let go and let Spring have a turn soon.

  2. Hi Michelle That is a great atmospheric shot. I didn't click to see the food because food always makes my hungry!! Have a wonderful Easter.

  4. Love the clouds!

    I saw a tv special about tiny little houses like that. Very simple and minimalist, to say the least. Somewhat appealing but I would want more space after a day or two I'm afraid. haha.

  5. That little house on wheels is quite ingenious-I like the personalized look and like you, it is a tad too small for me. This is an impressive sky shot!!

  9. Congratulations to your daughter and good luck to your son. That house is cute, but the price does seem a bit steep and I am not sure I could share that space with another person for very long. My daughter is just finishing "Gatsby" and I can't wait to show her the pics...Happy Easter!

  10. I love the little house and believe it or not, I would love to live in it. Less to clean, no taxes to pay, insurance really not needed, and that extra money to travel is a big plus!

  11. Congrats to the daughter on the home run!! Hope the son gets that turkey!

    I saw that tiny house on someone's blog yesterday. It is quite compact, that's for sure. I don't think it would work for a big girl like me! Ha! The foodie photos are interesting!!

  12. yay for daughter! i think $30k is still pricey, too. even if it fits all the 'modern conveniences' inside and i know they don't come cheap. :)

  13. What an amazing photo!
    That house is very little, and I agree that it seems overpriced.

  14. It's cute and all, but I would have a hard time with no closet space- plus the price is a bit ridiculous.

  17. That sky looks like it means serious business! It's been stormy on and off here in the Northeast US as well. Hope spring finds your doorstep soon :)

  18. Wowzer! what a sky . . . .
    I am intrigued by the small l house movement. I've seen pictures and videos of plenty of them . . I agree, it seems expensive, but - EVERYTHING seems expensive lately . . . I know some places have legislated against them . . odd, hm? I can see myself rather happy in a teeny space - as long as I can have large adventures . . . (happy grins at the thought)

  19. Oh yes....a little too snug for me as well...
    congrats to the girl of the house....Home runs in our part of the Country, are a big deal...
    Blessings.

  23. That is one dramatic image, my friend! Was it hail or rain or? Love the little house, wish my kids could build one. They are sleeping in a small trailer on our property and spending the rest of the time in the house with us. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  24. Wow what a dramatic effect those storm clouds and that water tower...awesome the beauty of nature. The small house was very well organized and I do agree that most of us could do with much less if we were willing to try. We hope our next home will be single floor and smaller than our current Victorian.

  25. That certainly is one tiny house. I can't imagine having to downsize all my kitchen gadgets to fit in that space.
