My week started out with a busted bottle of Chardonnay. I was looking forward to packing this up with the rest of my belongings, to take on my mountain trip with Sweet Guy this week.
However, the universe had other plans.
I have to admit, there is nothing quite so delish as a front porch that smells of grapes. I do hope the ants appreciate the offering I have laid at their altar.
Then of course, there was this morning - emergency trip to the dentist. My dear friend, Dr. Nicole Jackson, happens to be my dentist, so it helps when there is someone you trust, but the sound of a drill and the smell of anesthetic is not a great way to start your Monday. Apparently, I need a root canal and possibly a lobotomy, but I think the root canal is a little more necessary right now.
Back to the issue at hand - This Summer! I have racked up over 2,000 miles this summer just driving here and there. I am never home on the weekend and I am perfectly okay with that! My packing woes are getting easier and easier as I get this whole transient relationship under my belt.
Every weekend, this is me. (See the pic to the left.) On the road again... I just can't wait to get on the road again...
(That was my best Willie Nelson impression.)
With that being said, this summer has not disappointed. I have basked in the glow of the sun and dare I say it, I actually have a little color to my skin. My dental hygienist even noticed it. I wear super strong sunscreen - seriously, I wear 100spf. Great news - because I have not burned at all this summer. But... I suppose over time, the skin will pick up a little glow, and that I actually have.
For fun, let's take a look at the past two weeks:
Remember this guy?
Okay.. I'll wait.
It's Lestat the Vampire Cat. I wanted to give you an update on him. This was a pic from last week, and he is doing very well, thank you. Stilling living with my mom and dad. I miss his little sweet face, but so glad he is healthy and happy.
This summer I have indulged a little. Several low country boils, grilling out, and of course the drink this summer was the Sangria. Yep.
My little house museum is doing wonderfully! We've had some things done to the columns... made the news.
You know, when you think of South Georgia.. what comes to mind? Rednecks? Trailers with big trucks and rebel flags?
Just so you know, if you are planning a vacation and you have never thought of giving southwest Georgia a try, you are missing out! I spent the day in Columbus, GA recently and had a blast. Check out the river activities above!
Of course, a trip to Starbucks never hurts.
I even went to Dinglewood's for one of their famous scramble dogs. It was incredible!! Apparently it is the first scramble dog - ever!
There was so much to do there! From zip lining to white water rafting, from paddle boating to kayaking - it was all right there and affordable (and just blocks from all of the downtown restaurants and boutiques. I highly recommend Columbus in SouthWest Georgia.
Finally, I'm having a blast down at the farm (also in Southwest Georgia.) Sweet Guy and I are here riding around on the 4 wheeler.
Even had a chance to take my niece and sister to the cabin for the weekend.
So much good... so much happiness...
How is life going for you?
