A Stone Fence From the Past.....for Friday Fences

 
My heart is drawn to stone fences and stone buildings,
 especially the older ones.
 
 
Because some landscaping remains,
 I'm speculating there was once a home on this property.
 
 
The eye can see an imprint left behind,
where a section has been removed.

Familiar Scenes Beginning My Week.....for Monday's Country Backroads

 
Traveling the meandering country back roads......
I can't think of a more perfect way to start a new week.
 
Out of each day 
Squeeze all the joy within your reach...

July 4th on the Prairie.....

 
God Bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
 
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home, sweet home,
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.
 
Lyrics by Irving Berlin

The Look of Country Cottage....for Friday Fences

 
The white picket fence is still a favorite,
 for American cottage/country homes.
 
 
It's hot today, with temperatures close to 91 degrees.

A magnificent display of foliage and blooms.
Do you not agree?

Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Round Top, Texas....for InSPIREd Sunday

 
Work on the historic stone church, began in 1866,
with the first service held in January, 1867.
 
Through out all these years, there remains an active congregation. 
 
 
It is considered the oldest Lutheran church sanctuary in Texas.
 
Carl Sigegismund Bauer, A German Texan, designed the building.
 He also was the head mason.
 
 
 
 
On one side wall, the church sanctuary is supported by buttresses.
 
 
As is the case with most country churches, there is a cemetery on the property. 
 
 
 
I'll leave you today with a link to the gospel song,
 "The Old Country Church"

Leaning Fence...for Friday Fences

 
 
The entire fence line seems to be leaning...
it does make me wonder what happened here.

Pineapple from Costa Rica....for a Thursday Show and Tell

 
If you love fresh pineapple,
I have found a gadget,
 that actually makes coring into a simple twist of the hand.
 
 
The Pineapple Corer, purchased at Walmart, is made of clear plastic.
So often, as you may well know, gadgets are not worth the effort in using them.
This one, I am pleased to report, is a winner !
 
 
 
For easy cleaning, you simply remove the twist top handle.
 
 
After removing the pineapple by gently pulling straight up,
 you have about a 1/2 cup of pineapple juice left in the bottom
and a lovely pineapple bowl for serving.
