i've always appreciated when old homes or buildings are restored instead of being torn down and replaced. today's photo is a mid-renovation pic of the old post office - a follow up to yesterday's post.
i'll post another photo in the next week with a completed view. this week they've been working on installing new sprinklers and landscaping =)
today's photo is the old post office building located on Frances Street in downtown Terrell - this was taken the week before the PO moved over to the new facility on highway 34.
I'll follow up tomorrow with an updated photo of the building following some major renovations by American National Bank.
Oh... don't look too close at the photo, it was a quick 'job' =) my photo had a white, washed out sky - and thought a blue sky might brighten it up. Of course, the first blue sky I found was from the No 1 BFTS Fly In from last fall =) so here's a fly in post office mash-up!
Directions: Brown sausage and onion and drain. Spray an 8'' x 11" pan with cooking spray or Pam. Unfold and lay crescent rolls in bottom of dish. Spread cooked sausage evenly over crescent rolls. Mix eggs together and pour into dish over sausage. Spread cheese over the top of the casserole and bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees, or until golden brown on top.
i actually used a white mexican shredded cheese on mine, and it turned out great!
nothing better than waking up and watching cartoons on saturday =) reminds me of when i was young(er)....
if you're out and about terrell this morning around 10a, stop down at the ball field in Ben Gill Park and watch the Terrell High School baseball team play a 100 inning game for a spring fundraising event!
this week has been busy - still working on a project at work, and at home kicking up the exercise program by starting back on p90x. all we did so far was push ups and pull ups, but i feel muscles that i haven't felt for a year... (since the last time on p90x =))
last month i started a monthly photo series featuring the life of a tree... part of a new series that Cilla started over at her blog, A Swede Lost in Texas. Unfortunately, the tree I picked in January turned out to be dead. Had it not been covered in ice last month, perhaps I would've known.
So, I picked out a new, healthy tree... and i'm starting over!
today's photo will be my monthly tree for the remainder of 2011. whether it dies or not!
i really prefer the view from my living room couch ... but today's photos are from my temporary home near work, in Plano, Texas (at the intersection of George Bush (190) and Jupiter Rd). one of the necessary evils when you live an hour away from work and experience a 'storm of the century' =)
my room number is 511, and my home address is 511... coincidence?
my temporary home (candlewood suites) hates msnbc. my home likes it. =)
