The Magical Business Trip

Not long ago, I ran out of watercolor paper.  No big deal.  I could have ordered online and FedEx would have delivered a fresh supply the very next day.  Boring.  So Hubby and I decided it was time to hit the road and go pick up that paper ourselves.  Actually I decided and dragged Hubby along because I knew he would thank me later in the day and he did.  Charlotte was nearby - but no - we determined that the only possible place to purchase watercolor paper on this day was in Boone, NC at Cheap Joe's Art Supplies.  And, of course, we were forced, FORCED, to turn left and ride down the Blue Ridge Parkway while we were in the neighborhood.  A picnic lunch beside a stream in Julian Price Park was followed by a visit to Moses Cone Manor, one of our favorite stops on the parkway.  This photo tells the rest of the story.  Who says work can't be fun?


  1. I can't tell you how excited I am that you started a blog. You are a great story teller with a wonderful sense of humor....and now that I have read your first two posts, I now realize you are a very talented writer as well. Damn girl, is there anything you can't do?!?!?

    Wish I lived close enough to go to Cheap Joe's! That is where I order all my supplies as well.......although if I could actually drive there, it would be dangerous....I might find myself in financial turmoil! lol Looking forward to following your blog! ((hugs))

  2. Wow that is a YUMMY site to see!!
