Every year my Hubby goes to business meetings. This year they were held in Illinois. I enjoy riding along with him ,although I don’t go to their classes. I take my sewing machine,to use up the time. I won’t show the sewing projects today. I need to take photos. I’m going to show some of the pictures of the trip.
The weather was cold!!! Now I don’t like cold at all, but if I had to deal with it I may as well enjoy it.
These were taken in Tennessee, we couldn’t stop ,so pictures were taken while driving.
Kentucky was beautiful with its white covering.
We arrived at the hotel that had 30 floors. We were on the 28th floor, the view was beautiful. I enjoyed watching from the big windows, it looked like I was watching a miniature village. There were trains,Police officers on duty,fire trucks, bicycles,helicopters landing on the emergency pad,and little people walking streets.
the next morning change the scenery with a fresh snow.
If you look close at this picture you can see the train that had 95 cars being pulled by two engines.
Then on the way home ,we stop to fuel up the car. I got out to undo some stiff joints. I came across this little grave site settled in a little clearing in the woods.There were more graves there ,a pillar type stone and several little ones. One was of an infant.
it is good to be home where temperatures are more to my liking! 10 degrees below 0 degrees is way too cold for this southern girl!! 🙂
sewing project will come soon. Deb
Lovely to see your photos and hear about your trip. All that snow, we never have snow in this part of the world, but it does look pretty, Janette
How interesting to come across that small cemetery! I’m always drawn to old graveyards–I wonder if this one was originally on a family farm. Sounds like a nice outing!
Idid a Google search on this grave site. The lady’s husband owned 2,000 acres with his brother, this is in Tennessee around Battle creek.so It won’t surprise me if it was on family land.
I see small plots here in upstate New York, some out in the middle of a field with hay growing all around. I’m not sure when that was prohibited. It’s neat that you found out more background!
