Wow! You can’t imagine how weird it feels to be sitting at a different desk in a different house. Although I started the Mackinac Island blog three weeks before we left for the island in the spring, it has been a long, long time since I sat in this chair and wrote and posted pictures.
We’ve been very busy today, as I’m sure you can imagine. But I wanted to post something tonight, so I’m going to post a few pics from the trip on Monday.
We left Richmond, KY earlier than expected because Maddie let us know she had to “go out” at 5:30 this morning. Ted said, “I know I’ll never go back to sleep, so why don’t we just get ready and go.” I smiled lovingly and said, “Of course, dear.”
We stayed long enough to eat the continental breakfast the hotel offered, then we hit the road. Kentucky and Tennessee are beautiful states to travel through. Although the trees in the Great Smoky Mountains had passed their peak, it was still a great drive.
I was outside as the sun was setting over the lake today. The high was 76 this afternoon, no clouds. I opened all the windows this morning and let the house “air out”. Lots and lots to do – but we have plenty of time!
NOTE: You might have noticed that the “look” of this blog has changed a little. I don’t want to use the same theme as the one for the island, and I kind of liked this one. The “leave a comment” option is under the title of the blog instead of at the end of the post, and the “extras” are on the left-hand side instead of the right. I’ll try it for a couple of days and see if I like it.
