Dwight in Stone/ThursdayDoors

Still have a little collection left from Dwight, Kansas. Before I get started, just thought I’d share that this little town is on the old Rock Island railroad line. This rail ran just south of Sedalia, Missouri, my town back in the day as well. And so, for a little fun, I’m sharing Johnny Cash’s tribute song for the rail line before we get into the photos.

Did you know Johnny Cash could play a banjo too??? Of course I would know 🙂

Some boarded up doors for what used to be the entrance to a native stone building. The signage reads that it is or once was a heating and cooling business.

Not a stone building but the style is symbolic of those days gone by.

Full view includes 2 doors

Being an old bank left us wondering if there was a cool old vault inside. Now that would have taken this one to the next level.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the trek through Dwight the last few Thursday Doors. I appreciate your visit. Stop by Norm 2.0 for a wide array of door enthusiasts by clicking here.

Many Thanks, Andrea!

Quilting Alert!!

Last weekend I was given the opportunity to be interviewed by Andrea R Huelsenbeck over at ARtisticLicense. I just want to extend my humble thanks for the shout out and if you have the opportunity, check out her blog! I’ve followed her for quite some time and I believe we first met during an A to Z Challenge — testament to the great friendships formed during blog challenges. I highly recommend participation in these blog events. You never know how much of a connection you will have with another. Here’s the link to check it out: https://arhtisticlicense.com/2019/10/12/an-interview-with-quilter-stephanie-finnell/

Trading Post /ThursdayDoors

For a town smaller than my hometown, population 272, I sure came out with a heap of photos. Dwight, Kansas did not disappoint. Besides the quilt blocks we found, there was this wonderful find. (By the way, there won’t be a quilt block in this round of Thursday Doors)

Good citizenship

No matter where you live, there are people suffering hard times. It’s a good feeling to know that help is available to those who may feel embarrassed in asking. For those with more than they need, giving is a good example to show your children.

A Week in Autumn/Inez’s Clippings

Big changes came this week in our weather. And boy were we ready! The children couldn’t get enough of the outdoors. I am right there with ’em!

Jacket weather at last!

I even found an appropriate clipping from grandma and I’d bet she loved this time of year just as much.

It wasn’t unexpected this year but much anticipated.

In the past, I have had several Persimmon Reports. The first in 2011, followed by 2012, 2013, and after skipping a few years, I resumed after enough requests from family and friends in 2017 and last year. There’s only so much you can say about winter predictions with a persimmon so I’ll keep it simple. Remember this is not scientific.

  • Fork = Mild winter
  • Knife = Cold Cutting Temps
  • Spoon = Lots of moisture whether it’s rain or snow, you’ll be getting your fair share.

Drum roll………. For the Winter of 2019-2020 ……….

With the exception of the dud seed in that last pic, you can expect much moisture this coming winter. I do hear your groans and I apologize profusely. Grab your shovels and snowblowers or have that extra cash handy to pay the neighbors kids to shovel for you.

For me, it means I will have to be pretty creative in helping children expell all their wiggles. Prayers as well as suggestions are welcome and appreciated!

Speaking of creativity, I was gifted a cute lil’ pumpkin this last week as well as a bounty from a neighbors community garden.

There were enough beans to share with my mother! And I did snap them ahead for her ’cause that’s what you do for you mom.

Leaving you this Sunday with a photo of the Katy Trail. May your week ahead bring you much sunshine and wonderful autumn days!

Another Round of Dwight,KS/ThursdayDoors

Happy Friday! This Thursday Doors I’m sharing a couple churches in Dwight, Kansas where we found yet more quilt blocks. I won’t elaborate it in too many words being a day late to enter my post. Unexpected drive yesterday to the hospital with the hubster put things in a slight disarray–but happy to say I think we’re getting back on course around here.

Double blue doors and another side storm door. Appears additions were made at intervals and I have to wonder if it was always a church. No I couldn’t find information on this one at all.

And apparently we neglected to get a sign photo of this one completely.

Caught a glimpse of another block in the grass but didn’t notice it until we got home. Bummer. Hope you enjoyed the continuing Kansas Quilt Trail portion of Thursday Doors. Please take a few moments to visit the wide array of doors hosted by Norm 2.0 by clicking here. Have a wonderful weekend!!
