After travelling halfway across the nation, we are back at home! I have never been so excited to do laundry and go to the grocery store. Its nice just to return to a space of your own, even if it isn’t your own really.
I’ve truthfully been a poor Vegan MoFo blogger :(. Unfortunately, that was hampered by the travelling as well as the unfortunate loss of my camera. J has lovingly allowed me to use his camera so I have a few pictures of lunch today, as well as showing some wonderful pictures of the mountains. We love the mountains and hiking. I also have an uncanny enjoyment of moving water (think waterfalls) and visiting really old graveyards. Luckily, in the Smokey Mountains there are graveyards that date back to the late 1790s. The graveyard thing is not necessarily a morbid curiosity, but I believe that you can learn a lot about the past from graveyards. For instance, one of the headstones read so and so was “viciously murdered by a North Carolina rebel in 1864” which definitely points to the fact that this family were not supporters of the Confederacy.
Anyway, for lunch today, I cannot tell you how excited I was to visit the store and fix myself a lunch. Even if every item wasn’t homemade, infact none of it was, I was just happy to be eating healthy and not from a box or a fast food store.
