This little house...and I do believe at one time it was a house....it sits in a pasture.  Maybe it was never a house, but I sure felt that it was.  But it was on a curve and this  is only a quick snap.  Over in Illinois.
*************
We got maybe two inches of snow last night...and may get a bit more.  Not sure if it will amount to much.  It is cold, but sure doesn't feel as bitter cold as it has felt the previous days.

We ran to Terre Haute today...had to go by Joann Fabrics.  I needed a batting for a quilt.  And I picked up a couple pieces of fabric.  From there I had Roger drop me at Best Buy while he ran on to Gander Mountain.  Best Buy didn't have a mouse I liked, so walked on to Gander Mountain...and from there to Staples.

I got a Logitech mouse, but not crazy about it.  The scroll wheel on my old one only worked about half the time and after being used to it, it annoyed me to no end when I would be scrolling and it would stop.  This old mouse was I don't know how old...was a Microsoft and I liked the feel of how things worked.  I would have got another Microsoft, but the buttons were arranged in a way that I just didn't like...the buttons for either going back or forward...had one on each side and I am so used to them both being clicked by my thumb.  I figured I would just be grumbling if I got something different.

Anyway, was totally worn out when we got home and have not did one single thing worth telling about.  So I guess that is the way the day is going to end...

There are many Amish around here, and this looks just like one of their churches. Maybe this was one, or some other very conservative church. Yes, the style looks very much like a certain style of old church.

What a neat find, I have no idea if it was a house or like Ginny said an Amish Church. The Amish in our area have church in the homes. It could have been an Amish school maybe.

Looking at the doors and windows I'd agree Rose that it was probably a house at one point. The double door style dates it back a ways.
We had snow last night too and it's snowed on and off all day but very fine so not a big accumulation.
You'll probably get used to the new mouse before long.

The first thing I noticed about the house was the double doors. Perhaps it was a school or church for a religious sect that segregates male and female.

I know how you feel about things not working right. My printer died last Thursday. The new replacement arrives today. Can't be without a printer!! I ordered another HP. It's the only kind I've ever owned.

A nice house. I appreciate your search for a good replacement mouse. They always seem to change things, but not for the better in some cases.

Very deserted looking little house. We got about an inch of snow. I hope this is the last. I like Logitech mice. That seems to be the brand we mostly buy. So many of them are too big for my hand to feel comfortable on. I've never had one with buttons for backward and forwards....just the scroll wheel.

I hate it when I have to make a half a dozen stops...even more than two anymore...to get things done. I get so TIRED! Don't want to do ANYTHING when I get home! And, it's so hard not to buy fabric when you walk into Joanns or some other store with fabric! :-)

Love the little house. Sadly abandoned...
