Today's Various Items



Yet another old house that floats in a sea of old houses in this small town.  


Do you ever feel like your days are an odd mix of monotony with strange tidbits thrown in the mix?  


The first girl's softball scrimmage is just a month away.  


Cold weather, but no snow this season.  Where is the fun in that? 


It is hard to share a bed with a full grown English Pointer.


Did you know that cleaning out a chicken coop can be an invigorating way to start a weekend?


And, I think that is all......

  2. LOL...that used to be 'my assigned chore' at my grandmother's farm. The chicken coop. But I didn't mind. I enjoy chickens, even to this day.

  11. Ix-nay on the chicken pen..I can't handle the intense ammonia smell. ACKKK! This house looks like it could be rehabilitated..of course I can't see the wiring or the termites..but it looks good on the outside..almost like someone just left it.

  12. Lol, I wouldn't have thought of 'invigorating'! Had the photo been black and white, I'd have said mid-1930s depression...

  14. That house could be so beautiful if someone would love it. What stories it could tell. Cleaning a chicken coop is a good thing to do.. it looks and smells so much better afterwards! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  16. What a fantastic old house, so much character, it must hold many stories and secrets

  17. That's a beautiful old home. I'm totally drawn to them and fascinated by them. Kind of sad to see them deteriorating. We share a bed with a chihuahua, and even that is a pain. When we try to push her into the middle of the bed, she growls at us!!

  18. Such a pretty old home, it would be nice if someone bought it and refurbished it!! I have watched many a baseball and soccer game in the snow. Those days are behind me but I think I enjoyed it while I was doing it ;)

  19. Love the old house. She just needs a little love.

  20. That could be such a sweet house.

  21. Hi Michelle! Thanks for your visit! Sounds like you've been a busy little Farmchick. I, too, share a bed, but with a chihuahua like Spare Parts. She's good about staying in her spot. You always have the bestest photos!

  22. A beauty in its day, a beauty in its aged state. If I had such skills I would enjoy living in it and bringing it back to the way it should be.

  23. I love old houses if those walls could talk and tell us their stories.

  24. When I was a teenager we had a 100lb Aphfagan Hound that liked to sleep with me on a twin sized bed...also a poodle...a very crowded bed...

  25. oh, I love that old house. and we've got the snow!!.. Want some???... more on the way!!.. .UGH.

  26. We sure do seem to have a lot of those old houses in Kentucky. I love running across them. xo Laura

  27. I love this picture - You've captured the beauty in this old building! I imagine it would be hard sharing a bed with a fully grown English Pointer!! And I did not know that about chicken coops...

    ReplyDelete
  28. that house is beautiful and i like how the chair is tipped over on the porch...yes, i agree, cold and no snow equals no fun...we've had the same winter here, blah!

  29. Wonderful old house! Cleaning out a chicken coop doesn't sound invigorating to me. I think you have a far better attitude than I have. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh, what stories that old house can surely tell! I think I'll pass on cleaning out the chicken coop?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Making progress on any dirty area of my place invigorates me!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, you remind me that I need to clean the chicken coop...stinky smelling right now...maybe after the cold front passes.

    ReplyDelete
  33. When I see an aged house like that I always think if only these old walls could talk.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Your photograph is gorgeous, Michelle. The orange splash at the left side of the house adds some mystery.

    What a phrase: an "odd mix of monotony with strange tidbits thrown in the mix." Wow. What a term. That is a pretty good description of ordinary life. But, I suspect we would be worn out if life were constant excitement.
