On this rainy Saturday, it makes me remember hearing “no rain, no rainbow” on a Hallmark movie. I tried to find if it was credited to someone, and I couldn’t find one definite author. But to me the quote should be “no rain, no pollen” Who’s been suffering with allergies besides me?
Spring time is here in Tennessee for us, no lows below 45 with as high as 81. Time to think of your outside areas and digging in the dirt. I plan on getting some of my favorite herbs to plant on the patio this weekend.
In Case You Missed It
ICYMI this week, I shared a couple of travel posts and a new favorite recipe.
I love learning new things such as the history of LEONTYNE PRICE, from Laurel, MS, a Black woman to achieve success in the Opera world, including being the first in a televised Opera.
Did you know there’s and INTERNATIONAL TOWING & RECOVERY MUSEUM? There is, and it’s right here in Chattanooga. It was really interesting learning about how the first tow truck was made right here and still many are manufactured.
SALSA – who loves it? I’m not sure I know anyone who doesn’t. There’s a super quick recipe to make, use as many or no peppers.
Is travel in your future?
Are you starting to travel again, or maybe Covid didn’t slow you down. I’m in the process of getting ready for a trip to Gulf Shores in a few weeks, a long road trip through Texas and Iowa. Yes, there’s a lot to do in Iowa and can’t wait to share.
