Back on the Range

We arrived home Sunday evening...oh, how I wish I could have stayed another week! Jeff and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner with 2 lucky ladies that are both staying at William Holland for another week of classes, I am so envious!
Before classes ended on Friday all of the rooms participate in a Show and Tell.
(The time is very limited, it's just before lunch so I did not get to enough tables...)

Once again, a great week of learning and laughter! Friends were made, and skills were tested.

When we headed up to William Holland last year we stopped off in Atlanta to overnight with my best friend from High School, Melody and her husband Lew. We did the same this year, on the way home. Dinner was wonderful in a trendy Atlanta restaurant. It seems I have begun to acquire a taste for "Shrimp and Grits". Since they were on the menu I had to have them to compare them to the meal I had at Farm 255 in Athens, my meal was just as spectacular! Who knew? What have I been missing all this time? (When we arrived home I looked up some recipes...Do you think it could be the butter and cheese? No wonder they are soooo good!)

Sunday we woke to a beautiful morning, the view from our window was picture perfect!

Mel and I spent a leisurely morning loafing around while Jeff and Lew attended an early morning car meet. Breakfast was had in the backyard...we said our goodbyes and headed back to Florida.

All in all we had another memorable week and are looking forward to heading back to William Holland. I strongly suggest this type of "time off" for anyone that follows any kind of passion. The collection of personalities, art and nature is sure to energize anyone! That said, I am very thankful for Jeff's willing participation, he always seems to enjoy the week is always happy with what he accomplishes. In the past week I've continued to experiment with the techniques learned during the week.

Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life. ~Henry L. Doherty
