"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

Day Trip





Greg and I took a short trip yesterday to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
We had lunch at the Dillard House in Mountain City. They serve country home cooking, family style. I must say I was in shock at the amount of food they brought out for just the two of us, and felt bad leaving more than half on the table - till we saw the biggest sow in their "zoo." It must get fed the leftovers!! Above are photos of from some of the animals there. (look at the color of my hair and the goat's) lol

We visited The Main Street Gallery in Clayton. I had been there once before and loved it. Can you guess what road it was on??? I came home with a great folk art painting. I'll post it tomorrow as well as their link. For those of you who like folk art it is worth a visit.

Off to make dinner.

Oh what a fun day together you must have had. Hey, I love your hair and that picture. I'd give anything to have the thickness yours has. Mine lately seems to be thinning. Yikes!! Count your blessings because you have lovely hair. The goat has pretty hair too!
