Well....I made it home in one piece....This is what it looked like on my drive to the coast.
Aren't the fall colors beautiful against the green of the trees? I took these shots while I was driving...I didn't look through the hole, just held up the camera and shot away. Most of them were blurry, but a few came out.
This is what it looked like on my way home
It is beautiful I know, but I hate driving in it. and besides, on long drives Michael is supposed to be with me so he can drive and I can knit or snooze.....(just another reason to miss him)
I did have a wonderful visit with Melanie, but for some reason we were so busy talking that we took no pictures, plus it rained a lot. I will take pictures at Christmas time. We plan on visiting again on our way to spend the holiday with Lilee & Bri & Josh.
But, Mel did send me home with lots of goodies, handmade soap, lavender massage oil, rosemary cooking oil, a medicine bag she made, bulbs for the garden, a cool puzzle, a gourd that she grew, some jewelry and I am sure I have forgotten something. So I was very spoiled and had a very good time. I even ate venison!! It was yummy! Mel is a great cook and a great friend and I still don't know why it took me so long to visit.
I did get her started knitting, so I have started her on a healthy addiction that I hope will help her quit smoking!! (hint hint) She took to it right away, which doesn't' surprise me, she is very creative and talented.
I did also get to spend a few days with Lilee and Bri and I will share about that tomorrow. I am beat and freezing.....thank goodness they are coming to fill the oil tanks today so I can have the heat on a bit warmer, I always worry about it running out.
Stay warm and have a good day.
