Home Again, Jiggety Jig

After a week driving across middle America getting to Kentucky, we arrived back home this afternoon. Now we face the crush of holidays coming and staying home for a while waiting on winter to come and go. Laundry fills the utility room and my mind is mush but just had to write a few lines here hoping to return to some kind of normal...whatever that is!

We left here last Wednesday in a frigid wind, making it to Lebanon, Illionis about 1:00. We were just in time to catch a late lunch in this quaint town we have visited before. Remembering the wonderful pie in the Tapestry Room, we drove the mile off the highway to sample it again. Pie isn't good for us, but we put sense and caution on the back burner for the trip. We ate lunch and then ordered cream pies. You can see we had to snatch the first bites even before the camera came out!

Lebanon is only about 20 miles east from St. Louis, so if you are ever in the area be sure and check the town out.

OMG....Those pies are scrumptious looking! I think The Ronald and I have a day trip coming up soon...to Lebanon and The Tapestry Room! I'll tell 'em, "Claudia sent us!"

Hi Claudia,
Your photos are great. I'll have to check out Lebannon.
It was wonderful to see you Sunday at the Storm Country launch. I gave Becky her goodies yesterday at critique group. You are so generous and kind-hearted.
After looking at your photos I suddenly have a desire to eat pie.
