Tennessee Times

Published December 26, 2013 by Jana

Random notes, things I want to remember and pics from Tennessee . . .

  • Gas when I left PA – $3.45 for regular unleaded
  • Lowest I have seen gas in TN – $2.98 for regular unleaded
  • Gas is a big issue for me when I am driving, my house uses a LOT!
  • Driving my house is a lot more stressful than driving a car.  And I have to do a lot more planning, route wise.  It’s not so much fun on windy back roads, huh, imagine that!
  • A Wal-Mart had chicken livers in their hot deli display.  I love chicken livers and am so glad I had my Mom show me how to make them a year or so before she died.  Wal-Mart chicken livers . . . well, dry, gross, tasteless pretty much covers it.  Glad it was a free sample.
  • I am loving getting to see my great nieces, we are taking tomorrow off from the visiting.  Parents are working and I really need to clean my house and do some laundry.

  • I should have planned my gift choices for the girls a little better.  I have glitter from the dress up costumes spread from the front to the back of my house.  But the Renn Fairre jingle belts and Fairre Hair were a hit!

  • We went up to the campground playground around 3:00 this afternoon.  There was still frost on the ground in spots.

  • I have read that when you take pictures and there are those orbs of light (See the 2 spots on the pic below) that they are spirits of loved ones.  I like to think the 2 spots on this picture are Mom and Scott, visiting the girls with me.  Those 2 spots also showed up on a couple of the other pics I took at the same time.  I am sure some science person could explain what happens, please don’t bother, let me believe . . .

  • I will be spending some more time with the girls and family on Saturday.  Build a Bear and dinner out somewhere.  Never been to Build a Bear, I may gain a traveling companion after the visit.
  • Sunday morning I am heading for FL.  Weather.com shows 60 + for the lows for the first few days I am there with highs in the 70’s and 80’s.  We shall see . . .

I have collected many quotes over the years, on many subjects, from books I have read or just from seeing it quoted somewhere.  I am going to randomly, when I remember, add an inspirational travel quote.  Some I have used with my pictures to make posters, and I will add some of them as well.

Happy travels!
