“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
~ Melody Beattie
Last night we had dinner with good friends of mine, former neighbors when I lived in Sparta, TN. It's always wonderful to see old friends and get caught up in their lives. After dinner we headed to Verizon where I found out my phone is definitely busted (no calls in or out, no texting, no Internet....sigh). They will mail me a new one here to the campground, hoping it will be in on Saturday or Monday at the latest.
While I waited at Verizon, Stu made a Sam's Club run. I was done before him and walked over to Belk's where I found some slippers on sale. I needed something that I could walk outside in as well as something that kept my ankles warm. Found the perfect ones!
Today was chore day...we were out of breakfast fixins so Stu spoiled me and we stopped at McD's for a Big Breakfast. It's been at least three years since I had one...it really was a nice treat. (What can I say, I'm a cheap date.)
From there we stopped by the Post Office and on the Wally World for groceries. We picked up a couple more jackets and a Christmas sweater for Sadie. Heck, I bought three for the price of one at PetSmart.
From there we headed out to check out the work on the property. You can see what we thought as well as some photos at Fire Lily Base Camp blog. Sadie had a blast playing with Keta again!
Tomorrow we are going to my good friend, Joanne's, for Thanksgiving. We're bringing the pies....and the dog. She has several dogs as well as horses....Sadie will have a blast!
The weather here is due to turn cold...highs in the mid-40's and lows in the upper-20's. As it stands now, as long as my phone arrives by Monday, we will be leaving on Wednesday. We may stop in Chattanooga for a couple of days, not sure...again, depends on the weather.
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
