Carpe Ruby Diem

Buildings talk. They tell a history of times gone by, of the people who lived there and also maybe, of thing's decay and death.
This little, red painted, worn shed has spoken to me since I first spotted it in a sharp bend on the road between my home in Haugesund and my paternal home in Sauda. The road is so narrow and the speed so high, we kind of never got the time to stop for taking a picture. It tormented me. It's evident that the old building, once housing cotters for the great farm nearby, can collapse any day.
In November the weather was awful as we were driving from home to home. The windshield wipers hardly were able to wash away the rain flood. We drove at snail pace, and I got to capture a shot of my little vulnerable building.

The red shed telling
tales of love and labor to
people passing by

It looks to be encased in ice.

Such a beautiful shot, dear Fel.

I agree with CHeryl, it seems encased in ice, and frozen in time.

It will be forever etched in your heart.

As I go to my devotionals in a while, I am once again lifting some of my blog friends before the throne - you are always one of those I pray for, dear friend.

I really like this picture. It reminds me how fragile life on earth is. Here one minute and gone the next. Lord, teach me to number my days, that I may get a heart of wisdom.

What a great photo! At first I thought it was a painting but it was the rain as you described. Simply beautiful Felisol.

Blessings and love,
Debbie

That special moment of rain was meant to give you this moving, beautiful photo! The moment seems to capture a life slowly slipping into legend!

Hi Elise,

Around here, we LOVE waffles. I'm going to try your mother's recipe. It's very different from the one I use.

Dear Annie,
Many make waffles with baking powder and buttermilk, that is a different recipe.
This batter need to rest about 30 minutes after stirring. You may also well keep the batter in the fridge, cooler, for days.
