Day 9/10 Cincinnati OH to Greenville Sc – We made it!

Yay we made it! We are in Greenville. Yesterday we had a lovely drive through the Appalacians. It was really beautiful.

And here’s our messy car with all the car crap:

It was kind of a thrill seeing signs with names I’d heard of all my life like “Cumberland Gap” and “Chatanooga” and “Blue Ridge Mountains” but these particular “Blue ridge Mountains” weren’t in Kentucky, they were in North Carolina.

Now these past 3 days I have been to a bunch of states I have never been to before, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennesee. I think I have been in North Carolina before.

In North Carolina, Mom took us on a slight detour to see Lake Junaluska, where she goes for her quilting retreats annualy if she can make it.

How beautiful is that?

So we made it to lovely Greenville, and got into the hotel. We are finding out that we love La Quinta hotels, they are reasonable and really have everything you could need – including a guest laundry room!

Jessie, Allen, Allen and Ian were away for the weekend, so we spent the morning vegging in the hotel and washing laundry. The we met with the realtor at our new rental house to pick up the keys. It’s a cute little place, plenty big enough and the yard care is included – woo hoo. then we drove around Greenville a little, had lunch at Sonic, (which I’ve been wanting to try fopr a couple of years since we were in New Mexico last) it was OK, then we came back here to the hotel where we are now on an official veg, computing, sleeping, enjoying the AC, ZZZZZZZZZ

Here are some pics from the trip in no particular order:

About sharonpassmore

Hi. I am an artist living in Greenville, South Carolina. I am the Art moderator at Eratosphere, a forum of Ablemuse Review. I play with all sorts of art-forms, including digital design and fabric design, but nearest to my heart, at the moment, is collage. I like it best if the collage materials are not recognized from a distance and reveal themselves at close up, the way a painting can look realistic from a distance but on closer inspection, the freedom of brushstrokes becomes apparent. My materials are my brushstrokes. ​ I use anything I find in my collage that suits the purpose, beads, broken jewelry, wallpaper scraps etc... I always try to incorporate recycled packaging too. This is important to me, partly because of the environment, and partly because I get a little thrill out of recognizing the value of materials most people would discard as trash. Think of this next time you peel that wonderful foil seal off a new can of coffee. ​ I am inspired by many kinds of traditional arts and crafts. The cultural history of the world is just loaded with fabulous treasure, isn't it? I view the world of art and art history as a giant buffet and I want to sample a taste of everything. "Mmmmm that Wabi Sabi looks delicious! Gimme a little of that Horror Vacui! Check out those fantastic Molas!" I completely reject the idea that one artform is superior to another due to what is in fashion at the moment. Art is timeless. ​ If there's something I don't like too much, I try to keep in mind that I probably don't understand it, and that's a signal to me that I have something more to learn. There is always something more to learn. Thanks for visitng <3 Sharon Passmore
