Blogs make a difference…..

…. in the way I see things.

I made a weekend trip to  see my daughter recently and I realized, I look at things differently now.  I think I actually SEE things now that didn’t even register in my brain previously.  I think – “Oh, I could put that on the blog”, or “Wow, that would make a great picture for the blog”.

An example is the cotton bales I saw as I was driving home.  Now, I’ve seen cotton bales since I was a little girl, but these were wrapped in pink – had not seen that before.  And, I thought maybe there were other people who hadn’t seen that before also.

And, the small waterfall – I’ve passed it many times to and from, but yesterday I really ‘looked’ at it.  I’m sure it’s man made, and I have no idea if it has a function or not – but it’s really pretty.

It’s a shame it took the blog for me to focus on what’s around me, and see some of the interesting things and much of the beauty God has created.

Visiting my daughter

I used the anniversary party as an excuse to visit my daughter in Tennessee.  Not that one really needs an excuse – but I just get so caught up in life – working and whatever.  I’m determined to change that!!!

I took advantage of the “excuse” and went up a day early so we got to spend some time together.  She was a very gracious hostess and we did a bit of shopping and lunch out at the Readyville Mill.  You need to  go and look at the website – it was such a delightful place – and the  food was delicious and plentiful.  I’ve gotta tell you though – you’ve got to be looking for this place to find it.  It was off the road down a little dirt driveway.  But once you’re down the drive – you know you want to see the rest of it.

We were there on a cold, rainy & dreary day and  the inside was inviting and rustic.

Dixie waiting for the hostess while I’m taking pictures.  I loved the unusual desk where the essential cash register, etc sat.

Hate having my picture taken but a nice lady took this as we were getting ready to leave.

Then while Dixie was going to  get the car, I made friends with one of the resident cats.  Well, sort of friends.  She let me pet her – then swatted me 🙂

Several beautiful and very well fed cats.  I’m guessing they get lots of yummy food.

We left without going into the mill – so will definitely have to make another trip.  Hopefully on a nicer day, but this one was for sure a treat!
