Day 1

It was a cold and rainy drive from NC into the Tennessee mountains today.

Not one auto parts store carried tire chains. (We tried three and called three more) I prefer to not get stuck in ice somewhere on this unknown adventure. Apparently we are driving into the blizzard of the century as we head west.

But the girls enjoyed watching a movie in the back seat and Nina really enjoyed her Ring pop.

First leg of our ride

We made it safely to our unit. The girls let me pick my room.

Me happy

They all claimed their own rooms since they all have to share a room at home.

We played Sleeping Queens ( I won)

They played Server while I ordered Door Dash

After the third attempt of Door Dash and the realization that nobody delivers this far out, we decided to turn on the fireplace and the Food Network and eat popcorn and apples for dinner.

Nina pulled out her kitchen tools for making Homeade soap concoctions tomorrow…

And we all turn in for the night.

This hot bath is going to feel good.

Very, very good.

So thankful that all is well as we say goodnight to our first day. It looks as if every day we will be at the mercy of the weather as to where we go and what we do. So much for months of planning. But that’s ok….it’s all good.
