Happy Thanksgiving everyone. 4, 2, 1, 5 - that was the count on my 3-hour trip to my friend's house today. 4 Class A homes, 2 Class B, 1 Class C and 5-5th wheels (ironic, right?). Amazing. I wanted to wave to each, or give them 2 thumbs up, or some sort of acknowledgment, but in my antiquated whale of a boat for a car they would have probably just lowered their blinds or something. LOL. So, instead I just acknowledged them in my heart, said a quick prayer for their safe travels and moved on down the road thinking, "One day. One day."
I was very blessed to be traveling today on an almost abandoned highway. And it was a major highway! I expected bumper-to-bumper traffic and my view looked like this the whole way. I think it's because I was traveling in the afternoon and most everyone had probably arrived at their destination by then, eating or enjoying a game or 2. Regardless, I enjoyed a traffic-free trip. Definitely something to be very grateful for.
The sunset was beautiful too.
Then I arrived at my friend's house just in time for a lovely, scrumptious! made-from-scratch dinner with her and her family. How blessed am I?!?
The beginning of the day was rough. I had a LOT of trouble getting away, getting out of the house and getting on the road. I finally was able to wrap everything up and managed to take my dogs on a long walk before leaving them in the care of my roommate for the weekend. I miss them already!
I was determined to not let anything keep me from making the trip because I NEED this wonderful weekend with my friends. Saturday is girls' day out - am especially looking forward to that: breakfast, then a craft fair, then scrapbooking. Doesn't get much better than that. A day with all my old friends. And no, I'm not calling them old. We've just been friends for a very, very long time. LOL.
I'll say it again... Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope you and yours had an equally blessed, beautiful day.
