These are beet greens I grew myself. John juices every morning that he is home and I figured I would try to grow our own spinach for the carrot, ginger, ape, greens stuff concoction he squeezes in this beautiful machine. Someone gave me some expired beet seeds and I just threw them in the plot and stirred the into the dirt. Like I was making cookies or something. And magically these came up. Good Times!

I promised my daughter I would update my blog this weekend - but between discovering Space Bags and a trip to IKEA in Dallas, I have been totally absorbed with rearranging my Craft/Spare/Guest Room and (accidentally) my Closet. So I'll explain these pictures some other time. It's my turn to make dinner for the 15 women in my Stamping Club tonight, so TTFN*.

If you lived in Savannah, Georgia, you could walk everywhere. But it would take forever to get around if you kept stopping to soak in the beautiful homes, churches, gardens, and squares. And read all the information on plaques telling the history of the city. Having lived my whole life on the West Coast, one of the most emotional moments for me was standing in the First African Church built by slaves and financed from the meager amounts they were able to earn, which many were saving to buy their own or their family's freedom. That's faith.

Remember that song? It's really all I have ever heard about Savannah other than the famous fact that it was spared the devastation many other Southern cities experienced in our Civil War. John and I are spending the week here for a work conference. (He's working, but I am just playing.)
Walking down to the Savannah River from out hotel, we found this Memorial to the WWII casualties from the area.
View from the glass elevator inside the hotel.
Most of the buildings are so beautiful - even this simple one has touches of the wrought iron that decorates almost every one.
This river boat is the one we will cruise on Tuesday night.

Saw this amazing building from the freeway and got right off to try and find out what it was.
Friends University,1928. But according to one of John's friends it started out as Garfield University before 1890.
And these houses were all within walking distance.
Highlight of today was dinner at a barbecue place called Bite Me that was recommended by Debbi of She Accessorizes Well. It was so good! And only a few blocks from the hotel. When we walked out of the restaurant, it was snowing. Yes, snowing! The first time Wichita has had snow after April 22nd since 1889, according to local weatherman. And maybe even before that, since they didn't even keep track of weather in Wichita before then.

Back in Wichita, Kansas for a few days. Got caught in the worst downpour (of rain) I have ever seen, but before that got some neat pictures of the Scottish Rite Temple and a Rotary Club Monument. That clock is as loud as it is tall. Staying until Wednesday afternoon and exploring while John works. Planning a visit to a cute Bead store right by the hotel. And maybe catching a movie at the cutest theatre ever. Plus great gelato at Cafe Modern, right next door.
