Awesome photo Friday (4)


Some people say that God made such a beautiful world for us to enjoy. 

 Others say it was to show His power. 

Yet, others say the world was made by two rocks crashing together.

But, truly,
"The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork."
Psalm 19:1

Thank you, Lord!! ♥







Back in time..


My Dad took my two sister's and I to a restaurant and Antique shop for an early Valentine's treat! It was sooo much fun! I spent a great deal of time looking at the old books..there were so many to take in. :D I actually ended up buying 7 books for the grand total of $7! Yahoo! If you scroll up, you will see pictures of all 7 books that I bought. The "Mother's Encyclopedia" set was soooo awesome to find. I was jumping for joy when I found out I could purchase them for a $1 each! I also bought a book called "The Pathfinder", but I really only got this book for the cover. The awesome quote on there was priceless! (that is the grey book above a bit).

 The building is actually a Bed&Breakfast now! It used to be a hotel back in it's day. The lady who worked at the antique shop told me stories of when she was younger. She actually worked in the hotel with her best friend making around $2 every Sunday serving meals. She said that once in a while she got a tip, and that was fun. :D I had a great afternoon!

  Did you do anything for Valentine's Day?
Do you like buying old books?


Congress Street

 Do you know how many little roads there are in the world? 
How many streets we drive on daily without even knowing the name??
 Streets like these are magical. They have a history..and a story. People live in the houses. Play in their yards. Think back to the little town not far from your house..the main street once filled with horses, families dressed in the 1900's wardrobe, and little growing trees. Now we see, zooming cars, modern outfits, and strong trees. One day, those things will be known as old. One day, we will be the ones telling stories of the 'old days'.

 Okay..okay..okay. Yes, that was all started because of a street name and a photo. I'm weird. Actually, I took a random test online and my results were 63% odd. I was told that I was 'undoubtedly odd'. I think that about sums me up. But, that leaves 37% of normalness right? ;)

 Do you know of a cool street name?
Did you take the quiz? How odd are you? :D
