My daughter and I have spent this week in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina with my sister and her husband. We have had the most relaxing week!! We have had no itinerary and have just done what we wanted to. Staying up late, sleeping late, eating lots of WONDERFUL food, sitting on the front porch (at night with a jacket), reading our books, looking at magazines, knitting, telling stories and laughing together, going shopping, etc. Just good old family time together!!!!
My sister's house has a tin roof and this morning I woke up early to the sound of rain pounding down on the roof. I rolled over and went back to sleep. Oh, the beauty of a vacation and getting up when you want to. The weather this week has been absolutely beautiful with highs just in the 70's. I know you Texas folks hate to hear that! At night we have to get a jacket or we get too chilly sitting out on the porch.
Fresh vegetables are in and we have been having the best dinners. Fresh corn, beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, new potatoes, squash, zucchini, cornbread, biscuits, etc.!!! One day we went to a local restaurant that has home-style cooking complete with country ham and fried chicken. And fresh cobblers for dessert. YUM!!!
Yesterday we went to a huge antique store and I found some beautiful milk glass sherbet bowls to add to my collection. We had fun reminiscing about old things that we saw that our grandmothers used to have or that even we had in the past. Isn't it fun traveling back down memory lane?
Today I am meeting a friend for lunch in the beautiful town of Blowing Rock. It is a gorgeous resort town that is here in the mountains of NC. I have taken lots of pictures this week, so I will post some next week for all to enjoy.
Adelaide and I feel so rested and relaxed and hate to go back home on Saturday. We are excited though to be going home to attend a wedding on Saturday night. My associate from pre-school last year has a daughter who is getting married. We are going to the evening wedding and the reception is afterwards at the Country Club. I love weddings!
Have a great weekend everyone!!! Love & blessings from NC!
