"Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke." This was definitely a great illustration of that verse!
On Saturday, we ate lunch at the Clayton Café, a wonderful little meat-and-three recommended by a friend who grew up in the area. Her suggestion of the fried chicken was spot-on! Then we went back to the inn so Alex could watch the season opener of the Georgia Bulldogs (yay, Bulldogs won!) while I went off exploring the local antique malls. (Recipe for a happy marriage: Sometimes he does his thing and I do my thing!) I didn't find a teacup that just bowled me over this time, however, so I decided oh well, no tea souvenir for this trip.
But at the very last store I went in on Saturday (which happens to be owned by family of the above-mentioned friend), I found this adorable little tea strainer on clearance for a great price. A perfect memento of a picture-perfect weekend!
