Frances and Al arrived mid afternoon on Friday. We opened birthday presents then went to Brown’s for dinner and back home for cake.
Saturday Frances, Al, and I headed off to Galax, VA. to shop and eat lunch at the Twisted Fork. From there we drove up to Wythville, VA then headed back toward Sparta via the back roads in VA and NC. We arrived back here around 4:30. We all went to dinner at The Pines. The weather, while it was cold and windy was at least sunny.
The snow that was to start last night into this morning never appeared here but it’s snowing in Winston. We have lots of sunshine again but it’s chilly with the wind. Al spread the five bags of soil he brought up for the garden to be tilled in later.
After a leisurely morning Frances and Al headed back down the mountain. I ran the vacuum and did a few other house cleaning chores.
