Monday the 15th was my birthday. I worked, and my coworkers are awesome: not only did all of them remember my bday, my supervisor brought me an amazing vanilla cake from Wegmans. If you live in MD and haven't tried cake from Wegmans, you haven't lived!
On Tuesday morning I woke up before the alarm to finish putting stuff in the car. Charles arrived home from work after an overnight shift, showered, changed, and piled into the car with me. We were on our way by 8:40 am.
|Harman, MD. We liked the brick buildings; all of the churches and what seemed to be a college had tall spires.|
|Windmills of death. I always thought they were cool until Liz pointed out how many birds die because of them. They have them on several mountain tops in WV.|
|Beautiful. Ironically, this reminded us so much of PR! We have very similar views on the island.|
We arrived safe and sound and starving at Liz's house at 1:00 pm. The house is stunning, and has a breathtaking view of the mountains from the living room balcony, which she has shown on her blog throughout the seasons.
|Main entrance to the house. Beautiful.|
|Windows facing the balcony.|
|View from the balcony|
|Goofy grin, much?|
We met Kenai and (K)Atticus, had a lunch of BLTs with fried green tomatoes (first time trying fried green tomatoes for both Charles and me) that was DELICIOUS, courtesy of Liz. Atticus managed to steal one of Liz's fried tomatoes off of her sandwich! He is a very naughty kitten. He has 2 dogs and another cat to play with, yet still manages to get himself into trouble. He is adorable, though.
We then we changed into more comfortable clothes, and the adventures began.
To be continued!...
