Nothing like sunshine...

warm temperatures and the lack of electricity to encourage one to get outside and enjoy the day. We were notified by Penelec that our electricity would be out from 9AM to 2 PM today due to upgrades. Since I couldn't really do anything in the house and because it was so nice out, I loaded up my two best pals and took my camera too.

An old covered bridge.

Look at all the green!

Someone else taking advantage of the nice weather.

Old Caboose number one...

number two...

as it appeared this caboose had been or could possibly still be occupied as evidenced by the remains of the snakeskin on the floor, (rattlesnake or blacksnake still equates to BIG snake) glad to have missed you, I am gone!

Signs of spring!

The pups wrestling and playing chase in the sunshine.

Sampson was still barking in this one but click on the photo to see the slobber wrapped up over his nose!

HoneyDews typical response when she is not ready to go home, selective hearing and passive aggressive "see if you can move me from here" stance. Click on the picture and you can see her waayyyyy back there.

I made it home in time to make pizza from scratch for dinner. This one is a "natural" pizza... no tomato sauce but rather the dough brushed with olive oil, then layered with fresh sliced vine ripened tomatoes, italian seasonings, chopped cauliflower, diced onions, sliced black olives, mushrooms, Mozzarella cheese, and on hubbys' half sausage. It was delicious and very filling. One slice filled me up!

If you would like to see additional photos of the covered bridge and abandoned cabooses please go here.


  1. Great photos! Your mom and I were talking about covered bridges last night and today. Hency my comment on FB. I sent her some pics I had.

  2. I have to say that I really look forward to seeing where your dogs are going to be next. Keep up the DOTh Posts, they are great!

  3. What a wonderful day you had. The pictures are neat. Looks like the girls certainly enjoyed being out.

    That pizza looks so good. I love that kind but Rob always wants tomato sauce, cheese and pepperoni.

  4. Great photos! I wish we could do more walking around our parts...

  5. Yep! I would have enjoted the day right along with you! Sometimes not having modern conveniences (electric out for a time) is a real blessing!

  6. Such beautiful I visited it!:)

  7. I LOVE that pizza! Think I should make it.
