There is a long stretch of state highway to LD's school. This four lane, mostly without traffic road goes on forever. The road is lonely day or night. Gives me the creeps but the alternative route takes about 20 minutes longer. I do not want to drive this stretch alone at night and I am a brave woman.

The new semester began today so LD stocked up on school supplies, more shoes, junk food for the dorm and new make-up. The kids dress like kids and most do not wear make-up although the town around them is filled with beautifully made-up groomed women who believe "a woman without jewelry is like the sky without stars." I'm talking really Southern dressed up women. I pulled my hoodie over my head, put on sunglasses and kept quiet.

I'm glad to be home but I miss LD.

We had such a good day pickle making.

I am sure that she misses you too. And you are sparkly without jewelry.

You should check ofr geocaches on that long road. I bet you would leave good geocaches with good stuff from yard sales! Or at least soem good jewlery and cat toys!
I will be close to some of your former stomping grounds (to geocache) somewhat soon, but cant say anymore to keep our anonymity.

Just stopping by to wish you a most prosperous, blessed and CALM 2009. Glad you and SB had your usual great visit together, and I'm rejoicing that Little Church looks beautiful. Life goes on. :-)(((St. Cass)))
