Our weekend was rather quiet partially due to my back and partially because we spent six hours in the car driving to Greenville and back to bring Number One Son home for spring break. Then yesterday, Car Guy flew out on one of his trips to see the world. He's in Chile this week and totally bummed that he's not at home with me and the boys. He really hates missing this time with both of our boys home.
Since everything was so quiet, I'll tell you about the goings on from the weekend before....just a little late :)
We got up last Saturday, jumped in the car and headed to the small town of Dobson. And when I say small, I mean small. According to Wikipedia the area of Dobson is 1.86 square miles. Yup, it's tiny. One of the attractions is the Rockford General Store. We check it out and bought some penny candy that no longer cost a penny and were able to see a bit of a reenactment of the "War of Northern Aggression." For you none Southerners, that would be the Civil War. And no, I'm not going into a political or educational discussion of said war. It was just interesting to watch.
This is one of the camps. The people actually stayed there over night and cooked their meals over the campfires. Everything was fairly authentic....until you saw someone pull out their cell phone.
We hopped back into the car and decided to see what else was around the area, particularly in the way of food and we came across Cody Creek and the Depot Restaurant. This was totally dumb luck, which turned out to be good luck because the food was simple but delicious.
Raffaldini's Winery with my friend Sue. The winery is just gorgeous and the wine is pretty tasty too.
It was wonderful weekend and then Monday rolled around and I somehow managed to screw up my back. That was the worst part of this injury. I still haven't figured out I did it. But enough about that. I'm doing much better. It's amazing what a person will do to get out of blocking...ahem.
