Spring Smells so Good

Yesterday I had one of those unplanned adventures that usually are better than any planned event. I ended up spending some time out of the house. I went with my daughter to have her hair done.

While she was sitting in the chair I wandered through a few stores. When she came out looking beautiful we went to a great place that serves the best burgers. From there we went back to her house, and I spent the evening and night with her family.

We talked into the wee hours. I got to see their new baby chicks. I had company while I slept, their adorable dog and I got to watch their crazy cat take over once all were in bed.

I slept in late and when I got up my daughter wanted to take me to Tennessee. This state is only a half-hour from my house and yet I felt like I was escaping to a new world. We saw some interesting views on the way. We shopped at a discount store we both enjoy. We ate at our favorite place, the Cracker Barrel.

When we were done we came home and then I returned to my own home. Getting out of the house for a while and talking to other human beings lifted my spirit 100%. The sun was warm. No jackets were needed. The air smelled fresh and of  Spring. I wish we could do this more often but I am thankful for this special time. Thank-you God for sending my daughter to me in a time I was at my most low.

Here are some photos I took between last evening and what I saw today on our mini trip.

  1. Sounds like a lot of fun. Glad you were able to take this break. I love Cracker Barrel. Haven’t been to one in years. I also love Tennessee. Have you ever been to Gatlinburg? I’ve been there twice, many years apart. I love the area.
