Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around us...to touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

A Relaxed Kinda Day

This was just a normal kind of day. We woke up to a really beautiful morning. The sun was shining and spring was beginning to settle in and claim the season. I have always loved this time of the year. The drab and coldness of winter begins to give away to the warmth and beauty of the spring season. I just love it.

Stephen called us last night and asked us if we wanted to go to Columbus today and eat lunch together and just do a little window shopping. He drove down to the campground around 11:00 and we got in the Jeep and set off to enjoy the day. Our first stop was to eat lunch at Cheddars. We all chose one of Cheddars’ famous burgers. I had the Cheeseburger and Mike and Stephen had the Three Cheese Burger. Lunch was good. We then walked the sidewalk at the strip mall strolling into several of the stores there and then we drove over to Peachtree Mall and walked through that mall. We finished up our day at Wal-Mart. The good news…..we didn’t buy one thing. The best kind of shopping.

After Stephen left the motorhome, Mike and I decided to fix up the patio area. We put out the lounge chairs and our patio table. I also found my miniature flag holder and put up a cute little Easter flag at the door. Tomorrow I plan to put up some of our bird feeders and see if we can invite some friends for dinner.

Mike decided that this evening would be a good night to enjoy our first campfire of the 2010 season. We have been carrying around some wood for several months so tonight would be the night to begin burning these logs.

That is exactly what we did. Mike built us a wonderful campfire, we brought the chairs and table over to the fire ring and we sat and enjoyed a great evening just relaxing together by the campfire. Mike even saw a shooting star. We like our new site!

Sounds like a perfectly wonderful day... We love sitting out by the fire and can't wait to be able to enjoy it again. It is really windy here in Tonopah and would be hard to have one. Glad you had fun today... Travel safe
