You know it will happen...
but you just don't quite believe it.
Two weeks of adrenaline and photo
opportunities like crazy, uninterrupted
fun times with family and a change of
Returning home to a snowstorm, homeschool,
a house that doesn't come with maids, and
several of us with colds...again!
Takes the creative juices and hides them
I have seen some great photographic shots...
didn't have the camera.
But if you want to picture it in your mind...
Canadian Geese bedded down in the snow at
sundown...they were lovely!
Or...the sunset over the valley as we topped
one of my favorite hills on a road frequently
traveled last summer while taking the kids
to and from work.
We spent some fun time with the Moms last night
at dinner...no camera.
This is the time of the year that local restaurants
offer specials for the locals. We enjoyed a
wonderful meal at Good and Plenty...which is not
to be confused with Plain and Fancy just a few
Funny, we always confuse them.
The meals at these restaurants are served family
style. Last night's menu was chow-chow, cole slaw,
roast beef, ham, fried chicken, mashed potatoes,
buttered noodles, homemade bread,
shoo-fly pie, cherry pie, jello with fruit, coconut pudding,
and homemade chocolate or vanilla ice cream.
Of course it was not possible to sample each and every item
offered...but the things I had were absolutely wonderful.
We were seated at a table with two couples from the Eastern
part of our County. One couple had the most adorable
baby daughter. She was very well behaved and you could see
the pride in the parents' eyes.
It was a lovely time.
The evening gave us a fun opportunity to talk with our Moms
about our trips. Since we had all gone to different parts
of Florida over the past month. Some of our locations had
overlapped but in general it was interesting to see how three
different trips to the same state can look so diverse.
So...while I am a bit under the weather and creatively in
recovery I hope you are inspired and full of great ideas.
Blessings on your day!
