Greetings and Holykisses,
Last weekend, Myguy and I took some time off and got away for a couple days.
There's nothin like grabbing an overnight bag and just heading out! We went up into the mountains and just had a blast.
Looking through the photos on my camera this morning; I realized that most of my pictures are always old buildings that catch my fancy. Thee olde store above always catches my eye and I can only imagine the stories it could tell.
This red peeling paint and old screen door is beautiful in my eyes. The rusty tin roof only adds more flavor don't you think?
For my birthday, our son Trent made it to where I can listen to my Ipod on the stereo in the Xterra. I love that because now I can hear the bible while driving. While we were listening to the books of Luke and John; ... the narrator was talking about the Judean countryside ... and we were right outside of a place called Mount Judea here in Arkansas. It seriously gave me goosebumps.
We passed so many church signs with good messages but this one said the most. God bless Piercetown Community church!
Here I was again, admiring another abandoned building. The little picket fence was so charming. Someone put alot of love once upon a time into building this home sweet home.
Look at the SUNshine built inside the eaves. It has two of these. Beautiful isn't it?!!
We stopped at several antique stores and shops. I'm not sure where we even were here but this young man was alot of fun to watch. He was carving a bear on a stump, very much like the one my Sil and Bil bought when they came down here a month ago.
Our over night get aways are over for awhile now, but we sure had a relaxing time. We stayed at our favorite motel and ate at thee Outback- Myguy's favorite steakhouse. --At one of thee antique shops I found some beautiful, lil antique plates that I hope to serve homemade cinnamon rolls on for the bible study gals on Tuesday evening. I hope Myguy remembers where this place was because it was the cheapest antique shoppe I'd ever seen. I wish I'd have thought to take a picture of the dishes as I'd never seen this pattern before and they were only .75 each. I felt like I was practically stealing them at that price.
The rest of our week, our internet was out most of the time. We've had rain for over 3 days and needed it so badly! Thankfully, the grass is growing once again and our cows must be so happy. We've had to start puttin out hay already.
So that's been the latest scoop. A lil get away, and rainy week here in Arkansas.
We're looking into getting different internet service. It's frustrating when we can't get online for days on end. I hope to catch up with all of you soon.... I've missed everyone!
Have a wonderful day!
Rain or shine!
