I'm Back

 Good morning lovely friends - I am back from a little road trip, a quick one, to Florida.  Last year, my dear friend from high school lost her dad, I helped her clear out his house so they could sell it, and then she lost her brother.  I stored her things at my house, because I have the room, and why pay for a storage unit?  So last week we drove most of it down to her home in Florida.



I love road trips, especially through the Smoky Mountains.  We stopped overnight each way in Asheville, N.C. and had breakfast at a darling little Christian restaurant in Chimney Rock.

I haven't been to Florida in about 40 years.  The forecast was for four days of rain, and rain all the way down - but the Lord was good to us and gave us grand weather the whole trip.  Traffic was also not bad, considering the amount of road construction everywhere!  

Lunch on the St. John's river

My friend Patty's kitty seemed to love my purse - he stuck his whole head and front paws in it, too funny!  He's an absolute sweetheart.  I almost felt like I should leave my purse there for him.  I promise I wasn't smuggling catnip.



Coming home wasn't too bad, the boys did dishes while I was gone (shocking, I know).  I have been incredibly tired since I got home - I'm not sure if it's the weather (cold and gloomy) or just that I'm getting a bit, um, senior.  I think I'll blame the weather.

More scripture for you today.  I still haven't been doing any drawing, and I think I will challenge myself to do a drawing a day, no matter how bad it is.  My goal is to fill my sketchbook with drawings and scripture, and then get a new one - maybe by the fifth one I'll be better, lol.  So, here we go, click on the title to be taken to the download.








And now I'm off to start my day, and dream of mountains....have a wonderful week, I'll see you soon.
Love,
Allie

Your final photo is truly beautiful, It reminds me of the farm where I grew up as a child. Tired, maybe the letdown after being busy and on the road, that too will pass, and soon you'll feel more energy. The days getting shorter sometimes doesn't help either. XXX

So glad you had a good trip. Maybe next time (not in 40 years) we can work out a meet up :-)
