My return to posting has been longer than I planned…..things get in our way, like…029

What other color did you expect?  I would like to say I was sky diving or on a ski trip in the Alps, but the truth is I was trying to shoot a coyote and my gun jammed and while I was trying to fix it, I backed up and step backwards off the concrete and fell.  NOW what do they say not to do…put your arms down to break your fall…oh well.

I am also on the hunt for a new home…not new in construction, new in location.  I started out looking for an old Victorian type home and soon found they are either cheap in need of years of repair or they are wonderful and in need of huge amounts of money.  In my search, I found a fantastic newer home, location great, house beautiful and price where we wanted to be…..

I am waiting for Roy to come home Wednesday and go see my perfect house for us.  He has taken the virtual tour and comment was “what do 2 people need with so much house?”   I have lots of stuff!

You can see I have been busy, but there some other pictures from other Painted churches I wanted to show you.











This church had  a locked iron grill door, so I had to take these pictures outside the grill……it is way out in the country and only has Mass on Sunday, you can understand why it is locked.

If you live in Texas or are visiting, I would suggest that you take a day to visit these wonderful old churches before they disappear.

Happy Labor Day!

Hi Barbara! Oh, I'm so glad you popped in to see me as I didn't know you had come back to Blogland! Oh, my, you broke your wrist! I hope it's better now but you picked the perfect color on your cast! :) Hope it works out for you to get the house you want! Do you still have your little goats?
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
