Thanks for all the wonderful comments. I am looking forward to being home and catching up on my blog reading and responses( I just can't seem to do this when I am traveling). And I have been traveling... I left home on Wednesday 1/20 and I am sitting at the airport in Cleveland starting my journey home.
Before I get to my travel and some stitching I wanted to show you the lovely ornaments and pretty piece of fabric that I received from Catherine over at I Love to Stitch blog.
I didn't have much time to explore in Philly. Thursday night after my event I had dinner with one of my cousins, I should have left town but I didn't want to miss dinner. Wednesday I did change my plans. The storm was scheduled to hit NC in the morning and not in Philadelphia until Friday night. I had to be in Rome, GA Monday morning so I flew to Atlanta.
So to continue the saga, I get off the plane and learn that my inspection Monday was rescheduled to Tuesday... I was going to try to get home Monday night and then fly to Cleveland on Wednesday afternoon for an event on Friday... So let me just fly to Cleveland from Atlanta. I really don't have enough time to get home.
So what to do with a weekend in Atlanta? Atlanta was due to get some snow/freezing rain so before going to my hotel I went to the grocery store with everyone else. So with provisions for the weekend I checked in and caught up in my sleep. The next morning I made a last minute stubhub purchase for the Fox Theater..
The roads were clear but it was windy and cold.
The show was excellent, exactly what I needed.
On Sunday I packed up to head to Rome, GA. It was a gorgeous day so I drove to Stone Mountain to get a hike in.
I chose to take the trail around the mountain.
But should you go back? Will it be more dangerous? Or go forward? You know where this is going...
even though I was halfway up and that trail was dry. I just wanted to finish the hike around the mountain.
Even with my accident it was a lovely day and beautiful hike.
Then it was in to Rome. Unfortunately I did not have a lot of time to explore. It looked like a really neat town.
The afternoon that I had some free time it was pouring.
I did get some stitching on Mary Allen done when I was in Rome.
I have started some of the specialty stitches. There is a house that goes in that open area. I am enjoying working on her.
So my extra weekend in Georgia was nice. The rental car I had was brand new and comfy(heated seats) and I got to see some wonderful things.
Then it was on to Cleveland. I did have the chance to meet up with a colleague for dinner.
The rest of this trip I bought my meals from the grocery stores. I am trying to eat better and exercise while I am on the road.
My event went great yesterday and now I am just anxious to be home. I am in Nashville now waiting for my next flight.
I have to get on a plane now. Have a wonderful weekend!
