Rural Antiquities

It's a cold, rainy day here in the Mohave Desert.

A perfect day for staying indoors, sipping on some hot tea while reading a book.

The problem, with me, in sitting down to read a book on a dreary day like this is that I tend to get sleepy and want to take a nap.

So, instead of reading, I'll be knitting some scarves and helping my neighbor friend do some sewing on my machine and doing laundry.  If there's time, I may sew a small bag to contain all my small knitting and crochet goodies.

CountryBoy called on his way in to work and said it was snowing a few miles down the road which means it will be snowing a lot more at the job since they are several thousand feet higher than us.

No snow here though.

Since I haven't been out and about lately to take any photos I thought I would revisit my photos from the old mine we toured several weeks ago in Nelson, Nevada and share with y'all some of the treasures that were lying around...



Such great stuff surrounded by such beauty!

One day I would love to go back to the mine and just spend the day shooting all the goodies out there.

Pretty! Those are some cool antiques. I really like the shot of the rusty lunch box.

Oh, that mine sounds like a jackpot! Are the objects that are strewn there just left behind from when the mine was open? I love stuff like that!

As far as reading and rainy days go...I am exactly the same. I end up snoozing ;) Hope your day is going productively!

I love the old stove. I am exactly like you, if I try to read on a dreary day, I get very sleepy!

Amazing that things are just left behind like that! No snow here, but it's been too cold. I'm ready for spring:@)
