It was just 24 hours, maybe a few more, but it was 24 hours of joy for the senses. All five of them.
After taking care of a few errands, I packed up the truck and hit the road for Richmond. On the way out of town, I couldn’t help but stop to capture the Sight of Glencoe. Built in 1870, Glencoe was the home of a Civil War General, and currently houses a museum and art gallery.
Soon enough, I was on the way to see the Girls Of August. Some of you may remember that the GOAs are the women I attended the Medical College of Virginia with over 20 years ago. We meet every August for a summer getaway and we also meet for what we call our Mid Winter Sanity Check in February.
What a Weekend! The Sound of laughter, of stories being told, and of the neighbor’s laundry flapping in the breeze. (okay, okay, I couldn’t really hear it but I liked this image and wanted to include it).
The Smell and Taste of a delicious meal (thank you, Becky; you are a master in the kitchen!),
and of several yummy beverages, including this glass of wine, showcasing a neat reflection of Jan.
There was beauty,
and opportunities for photography.
Do you think it’s better in monochrome or color?
And finally, there was the feel of the cold snow on my feet as I took this picture. So yes, Touch was there this past weekend, too. The B&W version of this will be my contribution to Monochromia soon.
A feast for the senses, and for the heart and the spirit, as well.
And oh yes, the bike started up just fine today! The battery tender did it’s job though the frigid temps (so far). Maybe the weekend will offer a ride!
