Our Magnificent Outing

Today we had such a fun  ride up in to the  mountains  to  the quaint country town of Floyd, Virginia.  We  met  Dottie at her  gorgeous home  on the way...  then we  were    hit the road!

  Our mission was to  visit the local hardware and  see about purchasing a Foley food mill,,,   but  alas,  the price was about double what I wanted to pay....

  but  we enjoyed our luncheon at the Odd Fellow's Hall.

I love how  we  drank our water from  canning jars...
 I had a quesadilla  and  Dottie  had a taco..

The stage nearby was  begging for  an entertainer...   but alas     neither of us  were prepared to sing today....
We stopped in at the local fabric  shop and  we each   had a blast  purchasing   the perfect   items for our  perspective nests.  I bought table cloth fabric... as usual.
  Then we were  driving back  towards home  but first stopped in at the  roadside market..

known for its hand dipped creamery ice cream..   I bought a blue pumpkin and  and we sat on the wrap around porch  as we  enjoyed our  cones....

  The  chickens across the road  performed dutifully for us...   it  was  quite entertaining

Soon we were  heading back down the mountain  with  dreams of  how we  would  create new   items for our home and with  very  happy  tummies...  for me  it was such a grand  day for sharing with my friend and enjoying  God's magnificent  world  in autumn.
