Back From the Road Trip
And what a road trip it was! The drive took two days each way, and in between we had a wonderful and relaxing time with our Philadelphia family. Now that they have two little ones, they have moved to the ‘burbs, which makes me very happy. There is a real lawn, a park you can walk to, and even a big bunny who visits the back yard every day. A far cry from the never ending sidewalks and asphalt and traffic of the city.
If we’d planned this trip for sightseeing, we wouldn’t have been disappointed. Driving through six states in all, we saw beautiful mountain vistas, parts of the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains, rivers, and miles upon miles of farmland. And you know how much I love farms.
If it hadn’t been for the hour and a half traffic tie-up going up and the half-hour one coming back, it would have been just about perfect.
And of course the big reason for the trip in the first place . . .
That’s 3-week-old River Bennett Marshall. And here is his big sister Piper with one of her very favorite people in the world, her Granddad.
Back to my studio and garden now, where both have been calling my name. The bugs have attacked the garden with a vengeance but the good news is we got 11 inches of rain over the past 10 days while we were away.
Have a creative day!
