…. 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.
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!
