Today, I got in my car to drive to the mountains for two purposes: to relax and to take pictures. I love the Blue Ridge Parkway, and usually it loves me back.
I was 15 minutes away from my home when the skies turned black and the warnings started to come over the radio. I wasn't in the mood for hours of torrential rain, so I turned around and just made it home before we got hit. So here is a picture of a rainbow instead over some very non-mountainous terrain - the Walgreen parking lot.
Since I was unsuccessful in trip number 6 to the mountains for the summer, I will try again in October. I have all sorts of crazy things going on before that: i am hosting a baby shower, I am a bridesmaid in a wedding, I have an out of town family reunion, and I have 20 talkative students and one ornery toddler. Did I mention I am a single mother? September, I will conquer you!
See you in October. Or late September.
