'cause we were good

Yesterday we treated ourselves to an all day drive about. We felt we deserved a day away since we have finished step two of our annual once every three years or so. . .physicals. If you know me well, you know how much I avoid these.
Monday morning was the actual visit to the doctor and yesterday was the visit to the lab for blood tests. Immediately after having our cholesterol test taken. . .we ran to McDonalds for an egg mcmuffin.



We headed out onto the freeway and headed to Merrit for lunch. At their local Whitespot we enjoyed a Triple O Burger and then took the most scenic ride towards home. The ride from Merrit to Spences Bridge was just gorgeous. It is a road less travelled and turning around and stopping for photo ops was easy.


Today, I'll give you just a peek and more photos will follow in coming days.
I actually had loaded up more but my uncoordination on the notebook computer deleted them. . .so this is all you get today.
My goal was to take pictures for my dining room, replacing the two spring photos that I took. . in spring. Somehow the summer ones never did happen.

I was so thankful for this day to relax and have uninterrupted time to talk .. and laugh, and think. The weather was perfect. I had brought a warm jacket but we didn't need them.


You'll be glad to know that we didn't stop for yet another unhealthy meal for dinner. . .that we had at home.
Today we will continue our routine at the farm . I'm going to whip up a batch of Charlottes' Maple Twists for coffee break this morning. My beloved has a "meeting" scheduled with his chick salesman for ten .. . I hope to have them done by then.

Have a wonderful day my friends. . . .

  1. Yes, I see your comments have changed, too! This is the fourth blog where I've noticed... Hmmmm...

    Beautiful pictures...love the first where there's a glimpse through and beyond. I've got a thing for those kinds of photos.

    And good for the two of you for doing your duty. No one enjoys those doc visits and all the testing. No one. I heartily commend you both. And you deserved Mickey D's as a reward, too!

  2. What a nice way to "celebrate" those annual physicals! I love the photos - especially the one of you by the barn! You definitely have more color in the trees than we've found so far in our travels this week.

  3. oh this looked like a perfect day, bad meals and all. who cares, (once inawhile). your pictures are gourgeous but what made this day so perfect is that you were able to spend it with your beloved. you my dear are a blessed woman, but it is something that you have fostered as a mother and a wife to work at these relationships and be a blessing to them. now the investment that you have made in that has paid off big time. you are a wonderful example to us all and i always leave a better woman than when i came....((((xxxx))))

  4. You are cracking me up with what you had to eat AFTER your cholesterol check!! Fun. Your photos are wonderful. I keep thinking that my annual is at the wrong time of year just after thanksgiving and Christmas and that's why my cholesterol is a tad high! I'm thinking I need to change the date to June...
    Have a wonderful day!

  6. Those are the perfect daytrip meals! Cholesterol...what's that?

    You chose the best day to be out and about...and enjoying the leaves. Beautiful fall pic's!

    I see there is a road less travelled that I haven't yet checked out. Soon.

  8. I'm dying for a quiet coffee break.
    But only three more sleeps and I'll be flying high.
    We had some reps in the other day and they thought they entered a disaster Zone.
    Toys all over the place.....

  11. That first picture is gorgeous! A perfect fall composition. I love the bridge picture as well, with the river and golden leaves.

    Isn't it fun to take a ramble with a camera? Glad you had a dun day after a gruelling morning :)

  13. Hi Lovella - what beautiful pictures - I think that every year the trees and scenery are getting more beautiful than the year before - or maybe as we get "older" we just really appreciate those things more! Love, Flo

  14. Beautiful photos --- great colors. I love the new profile picture of you. And I admire your sense of organization (I'm fortunate to get pictures hung at all, let alone different ones for every season!). I'm glad you are healthy and well!!!!
