Project 365 ~ Week 43

Well I only took pictures two day this week, yea I know kinda pathetic!

I have a really good reason for my lack of photographic documentation though.

A few weeks ago I started reading Francine Rivers “Mark of the Lion” series. Well I got so engrossed in these books I spent almost every spare minute with my nose stuck between the covers of these three books. I finally finished the last book on Saturday after we got back from our excursion up to the mountains.

If you are looking for a great read then I would highly recommend this series. It is absolutely phenomenal. I simply could not put it down. It is all about the first generation Christians after the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the temple. It was fascinating to read about the lives of those first generation Christian's as well as get a glimpse of what life was like for all those who laid the foundation for our faith. It’s a strictly fictional book but the premise is real and a lot of real biblical characters are mentioned and there are a few key New Testament characters that make an appearance in this story line as well

Loved it! Y’all if you get the chance give it a read you will not regret it!

I pulled myself away for my literary coma long enough to go out to the store for a few hours.

Friday, October 22, I had to make a trip to Hobby Lobby for some more paint. I am contemplating painting number two and I need to replenish mu supplies before I hit the canvas again.

I made my usual trip over to the H Mart for some produce. I came home with some wonderful strawberries, bananas, pineapple and some pears that were just amazing.

I picked up some great salmon which I seared off in my cast iron skillet with some garlic, parsley and a tiny bit of butter. Sorry no pictures but it was really good.

Remember those pineapple cans?

Well I put them to good use ands made my first attempt at English Muffins. I have a post coming about the process for those of you who may want to ask the tried and true Be still and Know question “How hard could it be?”

Not really that hard as it tunes out so keep your eyes on your blog roll for the how to on English Muffins. I still think the recipe needs a bit of tweaking but overall I was pleased with my first attempt!

Saturday, October 23, We loaded the van, the family and the camera and my back pack and headed up to the  North Georgia mountains. We went to Amicalola Falls State Park.

It wasn’t at it full peak yet but we looked at our schedule and realized that this weekend was our widow of opportunity if we were going to get a glimpse of the fall color. Sadly I think everyone one else with in a hundred mile radius was also out taking in all the fall gorgeousness as well, but we persevered through ht limited parking and in spite of the throngs of people had a wonderful time. Are the day of finding a quiet moment out in God’s creation gone? I had to wonder how hard it really is to find a moment to really appreciate all the wonder his creation has to offer in solitude?

It was amazing…crowded but still amazing!

On the way home we stopped for an early dinner at O'Charlie's. I had their wonderful Loaded Potato soup and the Black & Blue Steak salad.

And then one of there mini deserts, the Caramel Pie. It was very small but so rich that I had to bring half of it home with me.

Well that’s it for me for this week. For more 365 fun y’all head over to Sara’s and link up!

Blessings

Those English Muffins look great! And do does that soup & that dessert. mmmm. You wouldn't think I had eaten breakfast just an hour ago would you?

Lovely pictures of the trees. I find that if I want solitude in nature I have to wait until nature isn't quite as pretty :)

During the summer I got lost in books and reading most of my day! That soup looks oh so very yummy and that dessert looks amazingly delish! Beautiful photos of your day out and the waterfall!

That books series sounds great. When I get a "normal" schedule again, I will have to check them out.
Your english muffins look great. I could just see some egg on there too!!
All of your park pictures are amazing. I would definitely put up with crowds for those views!!
Have a super week!!

Did you say you didn't take many pictures?! Awesome nature photos!
I listened to that series and can understand why you could not put them down. Great research, insights, and story!

OH. The waterfall!
OH. The trees reflected in the still water!!
Just beautiful.
Loved your photos this week.
Funny that you went to O'Charley's. We had never even HEARD of that restaurant chain until last week in Virginia. We saw them everywhere! Didn't eat at one, but the name kept cropping back up. Apparently, it still is! LOL!
