"Vacation" and Friends

One thing I love about the mountains, is that retreat-like feeling that (for me) seems to be not achieved in any other part of the world.  Just you (and friends or family), in a high altitude amongst all that nature has to offer.  Crisp, fresh air.  Solitude.  I truly love the mountains.  That's the beauty of where I live.  If you drive across my state, you can visit the mountains, the piedmont, and the beach - all in a day if you start out early.

Well, I took a "vacation" today.  Not to the mountains, but to my friends M and A's house.  It was such a refreshing break in the day.  All those feelings I mentioned above are what I felt at their house.  Like I was on top of the world in this place where nothing else mattered.  Like a big *sigh* after a long, hard day.

I went there to surprise M with a few things, but they surprised me instead!

 On the drive up, I met their chickens....in the chicken house M and A built!

We munched on their fresh tomatoes!  Oh, so much better than store-bought!

You remember this hat?  She likes it!!!  :-D

I received a basket of fresh basil, tomatoes, okra, and a dozen eggs!

Again, check out those fresh eggs!

And two prints by Ivey Hayes!!!  I love African-American artwork.  
Mr. Hayes also attended my alma mater.  Eagle Pride!

Thanks, M!
