No longer in Evergreen....
I left yesterday morning at 6:00 AM. Know why I left so early? So I could have morning coffee with my friend, Beth Baldwin, in Tallassee, AL. And I had to leave NO LATER than 9:30. So - I loved leaving in the dark in order to get to her kitchen and have conversation and hot coffee - by 8:00 AM.
It would require several posts to explain Beth - she is unique - we are blessed in our friendship - although long distance - we continue to be in the same stages of life at the same time - so we bounce thoughts off of each other. Not only did I visit with Beth, but I saw her beautiful beautiful daughter, Hope, who lives close by, and Hope's two precious children, Anna Beth and Charlie. Hope and Ben, her husband, are building a new house really close to where they all live - so we looked through the framed house. All so exciting.
I left, having stolen a few minutes beyond my 9:30 deadline - no matter.
arrived in Scottsboro - 1:30 pm
Did the reentry thing -
This morning - out to Ann's - helped her get ready for this weekend.
At Riverside, tomorrow, we're having a "Ladies' Fall Luncheon" and the speaker is a close friend of Ann and will be staying with Ann and Steve for the weekend. Ann needed to be at the church preparing for the luncheon - so I was at her house getting it ready for guests.
And now at home, my house. I spoke with Sarah who has had two really good days in Evergreen at the Bank with her Art Show/Sale. I think she loves my little hometown and sees it in a whole new light - other than it's where she visits family for a few days.
