We couldn’t resist it. Yesterday was so beautiful. Where we live in the southern states is normally hot and very humid, but the temps and humidity were both lower yesterday. We decided to take a short drive down the interstate and visit one of the smaller towns in our area. We rambled through a few antique malls. Yes, I did spend a few dollars on an antiquey(is that a word? probably not but oh well) looking tablecloth then my husband and I decided to eat lunch at one of their smaller restaurants.

Boy, was it good! You never know what you’re going to get sometimes in places like that, but they had a wonderful hot bar with barbeque ribs, fried chicken and several sides of really good vegies. But the piece de resistance of the meal was hands down the wonderful peach cobbler off the hot bar. It had so much butter in it that it literally was oozing and floating up to the top of the crust. I am not kidding when I say I have not in a long time put something that good in my mouth.

So, to cut to the chase, we had a really nice Saturday. We had not done that since before the COVID virus shut things down. It was good to get out again and actually eat inside a restaurant. I’m not normally a big fan of small towns, but sometimes I can see the appeal of a slower paced, quieter lifestyle where getting to be closer to your neighbors is easier to do.

I hope you got to enjoy your Saturday and how beautiful our God/Creator’s world can be at times. May He bless you always.

Saturday Vibes


I love to get out of the city into the countryside and into smaller towns(although the town I live in is not too big). My husband and I went to a smaller town and the state park nearby. We never had seen the dam and lake at this particular park. It was a beautiful day. Some of the heat and humidity had finally left.

It’s also amazing what you can find at antique malls in smaller towns from old school desks, children’s wagons to cement angels plus I could not resist some of the lovely old restored homes and peaceful small town churches. We got to eat lunch in a small Mom and Pop city cafĂ© with the best fruit pie I had ever tasted. I recommend taking a journey to smaller town America if you get a chance. Some of these small towns remind us of the peace and liberty we fight for in this country. Get out and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. Praise God!
