In my past two posts I hinted at my knee bothering me while in the Smokies and Asheville. In my family we've learned not to mess with knees. When we got home I called the orthopedic practice and was there in a matter of days.
After a pancake breakfast in Tennessee we were off to Asheville, NC. This drive took us through Foothills Parkway which was not only an easy drive, but a beautiful drive.
After five months of sticking around the house it had finally arrived - August! Way back before COVID-19 was a part of our daily vocabulary we planned a family trip to Asheville, NC to celebrate my parents' 50th anniversary. After lots of "will it happens?", "can we goes?", and "are there travel quarantines?" August was here and we all decided to go.
Well, I had the best of intentions this year to keep my blog updated on a regular basis, but then there was a pandemic. We have pretty much stayed at home since March 8. We are both working from home. You would think that means misadventures would not happen, but a pretty wet one happened last weekend.
Well here I sit. I'm certainly not wandering anymore.
It's been a while! This happened last year too! We get wrapped up in the activity of the holidays and then the start of a new year full of promise, resolutions, diets, and the next thing we know it's February!
I was putting my passport away recently, and took a look at all of my passports and realized like souvenirs on the shelf, passports tell a story of our journeys in life.
We visited Butchart Gardens and Chichuly Gardens and Gallery and were inspired by both!
And, just like that we were off again! We didn't plan to go to Utah this year, and we certainly didn't plan this trip to Seattle, but when an opportunity arose for both we jumped at them (well we packed our bags actually).
After two weeks and a few days we were in Frankfurt ready to come home. And we were ready. Unlike other vacations where we aren’t ready to come home, we were ready. We loved our trip and had a great time, but after 18 nights you start to miss your own bed. And you, well at least us, start to miss your own coffee!
