Paella of sights and words…

Today, March 31st, 2011 I have a monkey on my back.  The animal would just not let me put my thoughts in order.  I really don’t know how to properly channel all ideas for today’s post in both halves of my brain.  I am in a fog.

 Isn’t that a pretty picture and good for you too!  That was taken at my favorite hang out place, you should know by now, Whole Foods.  Yes, Miss Raylene invited me to go along with her to Raleigh and after some sightseeing we had a nourishing and good tasting lunch.  I love that place!


My goodness!  Nature is just having a ball delighting us all with its magnificent display of colors, textures and sights.  This is that time of the year to just look all that is around you and confirm in your heart that there is something so incredible above us all that can put together such a spectacular display.

This are some of the sights in some of the Old Raleigh neighborhoods.  Images and words do not make any justice to the beauty of all of these at all.

My cheap, chic camera was not fast enough to get as many pictures as I wanted and shooting from a moving car I think these are just great.  You get an idea of the beauty of this area.

After we left those neighborhoods, Miss Raylene took us back home through some “blue roads.”   There is a lot of those in our area and everywhere in North Carolina.

We were in rural area, and waved at Betsy the cow, Billy the goat and Frisky the bull.  All of them were co-existing together and as you can see, some of them were just resting taking a break from taking it easy.  On the right is a little farm-house.  This area is so picturesque!

I am exhausted.  After so many happy birthdays, too much sometimes can wear you out.  Too much of a good thing.  Or maybe is the rain, cold weather and being nice and warm inside my little castle.  Nap Time anyone?

Thank you Miss Raylene for the drive-about.  I had a swell time.

So it was today, a rainy, cold, but wonderful full of incredible visuals and great company day…

  1. Thursday was a great day and I am glad we had an interesting ride. Lunch is always great at Whole Foods! Why don’t we have one in town? Probably because we would not have a destination to seek out.
