We had to go to the "big city" yesterday to exchange a jacket. It meant crossing 2 counties because I had tried the closer store, which was still 45 minutes away, but it's closing and there stock was very limited. Plus it's hard to buy something for someone else, that really needs to try it on...which meant I had to take HIM with me. I should know better. Well, I do, but he still had to try it on, which meant I HAD to take him along! After being followed around the store by "secret shoppers" watching to make sure we didn't steal anything, we were sorta accosted by someone looking for a light...to light the wacky tobacky he showed us! :o Geez, the crazy things that happen to us. We exchanged our item and headed back to the country...the big city is just not for us! :)
This little barn caught my attention as we passed it. I made a note to stop on our way back home.
I have always wanted to stop by Arrington to walk around. I had to settle for a quick stop/picture on a rainy day.
Picnic with a view...and a wine tasting! I'll be back! :)

2 pictures that tell a completely different story. The first one taken on an early morning run to town last week. It looks like a cold winter day, but with cool clouds though, which is why I stopped in the middle of the road to take the picture. Good thing there's no traffic at that time of the morning! The next picture looks like it's going to be a beautiful day at the lake as the fog burns off. Looks can be deceiving! In the first picture, it was quite warm, but the cold/rain had not come through yet...and the lake was freezing (as I hiked down there in my jammies because I was afraid I'd miss the picture I saw in my head if I took the time to get dressed)...and it was beautiful as the sun was out! The lake is just no fun when it's cold out...but that's just my opinion!

We went to the lake over Easter weekend. What a
rainy, stormy weekend it was. All I wanted to do was
get out and take some pictures, but all it did was
rain. I finally caught a break Saturday for a little
while and again on Sunday.
First catch of the weekend...and he wasn't happy
This is typically a "dry" run off...not this
More to come...

It's raining again. We were spoiled. Period. Spring
started for us back at the beginging of March...and I
knew it wouldn't last. Well, it did for 3 weeks...and
then came spring break. And there was nothing SPRINGY
about it. For the last week it's been cold and rainy.
Of course. But I think we're finally over it. I hope!

I'm not a fan of spring storms...well, I do love a
good storm...just not a "severe" storm. (Not sure how
many people actually do though.) This one kind of
snuck up on us, as I had not had the tv on all
day and caught a blip on the news about dinnertime.
We decided we had about an hour and wanted to gas
up the car, so we ran into town...and sort of ran
right into it. D'OH! It ended up being a quick storm
with little punch thank goodness.
Storm's chasing us!
Too late, storm's here!
