We're Home

We made it home last night after a major traffic jam on I65 near Lowell. Don't you just hate it when you are so close to home and something like that happens. I don't know about you, but as much as I like a good vacation, I also like coming home and I was ready to be there.

The trip was nice. We had great weather. When we weren't hiking, I had sandals on all the time. Unfortunately, I'm not doing that anymore. I've posted some of the pictures from some of our hikes. I won't bore you with a bunch of them because they don't do the scenery justice anyway. That place is just awe inspiring. Our house was so nice. The views from the deck and picture window were beautiful. The sunrise was breathtaking.

The stupidest thing I did was fell off the mountain during one of our hikes. I didn't fall far, thank goodness. It really wasn't my fault, but I'm sure I looked like an idiot. We were coming down the mountain after hiking to a beautiful waterfall. This family was coming up the mountain and the kids were screwing around and hubby moved over to let them through and I moved over because he moved over and I think you can figure out the rest of the story. I scraped up my knee pretty good, but I was a trooper. We went to the store and got the things we needed to clean and bandage my knee and then we headed back out. It really wasn't my day though. On the next hike, (after I was all cleaned up) we encountered a snake (I'll post his picture, he was not small) that I almost stepped on. Like I said, not my day.

That's it for now. I have a mountain of laundry to do, no food in the house and a paycheck that I need to deposit. I also have all of your blogs to catch up on.


  1. Oh my, I am glad you didn't fall way down the mountain. You are a trooper. These are breathtaking pictures. I've been there and I know just how beatiful the Smokey Mountains are. That snake picture gives me the willy' think you almost stepped on him. I missed you last night at Beth's party. Sorry you got caught in a traffic jam but are home safe and sound with your mountain of laundry....join the club, I have a mountain too and I wasn't on vacation. WELCOME HOME!!!

  2. Welcome home!!! Your pictures are beautiful :)

  3. Thanks for sharing your pictures! Glad you had a great trip, despite your fall and the snake. I just hate snakes! Back to reality now. Rough, isn't it? At least you have the weekend to get back in order. Have a wonderful weeekend. Love & blessings from NC!

  4. What is it with you and the Smoky Mountains and snakes? =^) I missed you and I'm glad you're home safe and sound.

  5. Gorgeous photos. So sorry about your fall though. We did hiking on our trip and I tried to be soooo careful because we were up really really high at times. Welcome home.


  6. I've never heard anyone say "i fell off a mountain." and in the same sentence say " I didn't fall far."

    LOL, Glad you had a nice vacation! Lovely pictures.

  7. Those pictures are breathtaking! Except for the snake, that's just creepy. I'm glad you didn't step on him or fall too far down the mountain.


I love comments. It makes me feel like I know you better. Even if you just say hi, please leave me one!
