"What is so rare as a day in June?" This is a quote from the talented American poet, James Russell Lowell. I often think of this quote when June arrives. June has always been my favorite month because of the nice weather and the beautiful trees and flowering plants. June makes me feel like "God's in His Heaven - All's right with the world!"-Robert BrowningIt's also a wonderful time to travel! Greg and I like to go on day trips, places that are not too far from our home, but that are fun, entertaining, and educational. Just last week, we went on such a trip, to a really neat place, historic Mabry Mill in Meadows of Dan, Virginia on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
There is a restaurant and a gift shop at the mill, and that's where we went first to have lunch.
We really enjoyed the country-style food-
Here is a picture of my talented father-*
* My grandmother was also an artist, and when I was growing up, she did a painting of Mabry Mill which is how I became interested in visiting the mill.
Positive Thought: "Today is going to be awesome!"-Unknown (I have this quote hanging up at home, and I look at it every morning. This helps me to start the day in a more positive frame of mind.)
