Got some time off, not that I want it, but with a BIG push from the BF I embarked on a ROAD TRIP!!!!!

Way, way outta the comfort zone.

Dang, back in the day, It took nothing to do what I just did. But as years went by, I became a responsible adult and less and less of a risk taker.

I am now in TN..13 hours from the comfort zone. Having fun, staying with the oldest and her husband and the Granddogs, slipping on ice. Going to school in the morning-with teacher DAU...

Went to Gatlinburg, TN today. A tourist destination for sure, but then again, coming for Mickey town, I get it and it was fun.

Being with oldest married daughter has been great, I have had precious little time with her as she has gotten older. We had a great day!

And I am on a new camera mission.
Feedback on photos way welcome!

FIRSTS and random winter observations..from the FL Girl

A snow plow on the highway, not plowing, but full of salt/sand and on the way to somewhere. Never saw that before today.

Water from the faucet is COLD when you brush your teeth in the morning.

My tennis shoes have holes that let the air in.

Tennis socks do not cut it.

Warm homes and cold outside makes for a nose bleed.

Blu, I am so sorry you and Skye have to deal with the results of the firebug. The winds are gonna be out of the west today so you will get the smoke in your face. Bummer!

I can just imagine how good your beautiful rose smells. Thank you for leaving it in my blog.

Hi Blu! Beautiful pictures!

Enjoy your trip; we may get up Georgia way to see my son soon. He is an academic senior in college this year (red-shirt junior for baseball) ... I cannot believe it has went so fast! Seems like just yesterday we were talking about high school sports and "stuff!"

Just stopping by a few blogs and saying Howdy .. :)

Have a great day!

I messaged you on FB on my Sara...She is doing great!
College agrees with her!

Final followup visit with the DR today. I know I will get the all clear! Almost feel human.

Blu, I know how you feel. I hope your brother gets all the snow shoveled by April. Sit and enjoy your coffee. You deserve some down time. Hope your day is a good one. We might just get some rain. Don't think we will have any bad storms. How is Sarah? What is she doing now at school??

I love road trips! So glad you got to spend time with your daughter - time well spent. Would love to hear about her school is it going?

Have you thawed out yet?

Great photos!

I love the last photo - it makes the trees look as though they are covered in delicate lace:)
Glad you had fun: we need to "push" ourselves out of our comfort zones occasionally:)
