Wicked Walk 2/4/2015

Wednesday March 4th was a bit odd.  Not only did I go to Nacogdoches (almost an hour drive) to work at a feed store for the day, the lovely 80 degrees we were enjoying (if you recall last week my walk featured snow, AH!) dropped to 40 in a two-hour time period.  And it rained on and off.  And Addie was with me.  And I decided to go on a 3 day cleanse.  But we are getting off subject.

Here is what I saw.

At the feed store.

I have a love of dishes, horses, chickens, wine, chocolate, cheese, Alfredo sauce, scones, wooden tables, wooden doors, scarves, men, travel, books, blogging, old people and old houses.  Not in any particular order.

I love this house.

We finally arrived at the store and, for once, didn’t have to wait on the train.

The tracks run right next to what was once the feed mill.

Me neither.

There is still a lot of old tanks and equipment around the place…..

The sign, though weathered, is still up.

There are TONS of dandelions right now…..

Then we headed back up the rather steep hill.

Thanks for joining us today!

Oh, and there was a really pretty cat but you can’t see him until Friday.  It was so pretty it got its own post!

Until then, have a great week!

  1. Time for a little “Take Me Home Country Roads”! I love places like you visited! We have a feed and seed store locally where you are greeted by a cat while you look at the seed taters and step over an ole lazy dog to pay the friendly ole owner! They load your stuff and say, “ya’ll come back now, ya hear”! Love it!
