Winter's Coming!

Brrrrrr!!!! It's cold outside! It is currently 21 degrees. We had a slight dusting of snow Monday, but it was all gone today, except for what stayed in shaded areas. Today was very pretty, although still cold. At least it wasn't as windy as it was yesterday.
I know it's hard to see, but there are a few snow flakes blowing around in these pictures, it wasn't dust on the lens! LOL This is my little red barn out back.

This is our house with snow on top of the bushes and roof. I still have pumpkins out by the lamp and indian corn on the front porch.
These two pics were taken tonight(Tuesday) at Glenna's farm. She got it back in the divorce. She is going to rent it out, and the guy that is going to rent it is going to do the necessary work on it before moving in.
These are the bushes in front of her front porch. I had to go out there and leave a key for the Amish gentleman to fix the busted water pipes and service the furnace. He is the same guy that Glenna had build the house about 15 years or so ago.
These are just several different shots of the sunset on my way to her house this evening.
Different stages and different locations. I kept stopping in the middle of the road to take shots.
Good thing it's out in the country. No traffic!
Almost done!
I nearly blinded myself taking these crazy pics. There were a lot more, but not real good shots.
The reason I am just now posting again after my last post is because the last time, my computer was set up on the floor of the spare bedroom. The desk was in pieces laying around in the room, and concrete floors are NOT comfortable to sit on, especially with osteo arthritis in the hips! OUCH!!!!! So, I finally got a long enough phone line to reach from the phone jack in the dining room out into the Florida room, where we intended to have the computer set up in the first place. I got the desk back together Sunday night and brought the computer out after Michael went to bed. I'm still trying to get everything squared away, but it is taking a while. The spare bedroom and both bathrooms are going to be stripped of their wallpaper and painted, eventually! Most of the carpet needs replaced. Chuck wants to rip most all of the carpet out and put linoleum floors in the bathrooms and hard wood floors in the living room, dining room and bedrooms. Of course, this will all be in the not-so-near future. That's money we don't have! We will just have to be happy with the repainting for now. A room at a time.
Gonna get off here and go to bed. I have been working at Northside Elementary School last week and this in the cafeteria as a substitute lunch lady. It's only a couple hours a day, but every little bit helps. I make more per hour there than I did as a cashier at Save A Lot. Two dollars more per hour. I hope the work keeps up so I can have some Christmas money.
Everybody take care and have a great rest of the week.
Love Ya
Lisa

I'd have stopped in the middle of the road to take shots of that gorgeous sunset too! It's wonderful you have such beauty around you -- and that you appreciate it and share it -- especially when you are so busy with the house. I've never told you this, but my sister lives in New Castle and I rarely get a photo from her - so your pictures have helped me a lot in visualizing where she lives!

Fantastic photos as usual - especially the sunsets which i love.

Hope the house comes together quickly and soon feels like home xx

Everything is going to come together, it always does. Sounds like you have made lots of progress getting things settled. Sounds like Glenna has gotten herself a good person to rent her place. Good for her. Love those two icicle pictures. They are really nice. Take care and stay warm.

House and shed look very nice. We're having cold weather here also.
I'm so not ready for it, wish Winter was over and it was Spring coming next.

It will take a while to get the house the way you really want it. It takes time and lots of money, even if you do most of the work yourself.

Great photos of the sunset.

Lisa,

Thanks for the most wonderful pictures. I really love the Sunset or Sunrise whichever it is lol.

They all look very nice.. If you get a chance check into some Old barns, old School houses, them are my Most favorite.

There is an Old School House, well looks like one to me. But if you know where Lake Mohee is, or the road, there is an ol house on the left hand side, can't recall the names of the roads right now.

I know it's about a mile down or so off of 400. When I goto Lake Mohee, I Turn right on 400 then left on the first curvy road, name isn't coming to me at the moment, then once you are down that way a mile or two, it will be on your left hand side, then if you goto the road just up the way on the right, that's to Mohee, Sign there that says Lawnmowers for sale.

Anyway, I may have a Picture that I can include somewhere... or even email you so you can check it out, maybe you've seen it or been there before, it was dated back I believe 1800's.

The Great Ethan Allen said...

I love sunsets. Cheryl and I used to go everynight to the beach and watch the sun set over Lake Michigan. Now the sun sets so early and its just plain cold by the shore. anyway, the snow melted a little today, but remains. and it is still cold with a lovely windchill. How I miss Fairbanks... sure it was cold, but there was no wind and the cold was dry ( it matters!)

About Town Photos said...

Better late than never, welcome back to blogging Lisa! We've all missed you and your photographs. Ah, the sunsets, I particularly liked #3 and #5 shots. Snow, I don't know what that is, lol. Our weather here is similar to Florida weather. It is quite humid here at the moment and we are having severe electrical storms throughout the State of Queensland, although not to bad at our home at the moment. Lisa, you're almost there with the move in. Both of you will be so happy when it's 'all done and dusted', at least you've got your computer set up now!
