It was a beautiful day for flying!
This was the sunrise over the tarmac at the airport in Greensboro this morning ---
Just look at that sky!
I am so happy for spring – even if it means that it is dark a bit longer I the mornings. When that sun comes up it is just BEAUTIFUL!
I was eager to get to my destination ---Tulsa, Oklahoma! Here I come!
Things were uneventful all the way to Atlanta, and wonder of wonders – I didn’t even have to switch terminals during my layover.
This is a very good sign!
And so is this:
Luggage made it!
It always does me good to see those big green bags making their way up the conveyor belt to the inside of the plane. Luggage that stays with me keeps me happy!
And so does this:
Hexies and Audio book – and a first class bump up!
I just finished The Potato Factory by Bryce Courtenay. What a great story teller he was! And a fabulous narrator as well. I have another trilogy of his I want to listen to next, but somehow only part 3 got loaded onto the ipod…..so I’m now listening to a Sandra Brown novel instead.
I was met at the airport by Judy and we gathered up my luggage and headed out –Judy and I were meeting up with Debbie for a surprise:
Lunch at the Gilcrease Museum!
This was the lovely view out of the window at the restaurant on the presmises. I never would have thought that Oklahoma would be so hilly in these parts..and spring is springing!
Beautiful statue in the entrance drive.
it was so fun to be able to walk through the galleries in the museum and see this lovely bit of culture just outside the city. I would have taken more photos, but photography wasn’t allowed in the museum. Suffice it to say that I learned more about bronze casting than I ever could have imagined ---fascinating!
Downtown Tulsa in the distance –see the pink tree blooming??
This is an Oklahoma Highway!
And there is water – lots of water!
My lodgings for the next two nights!
I am now in Stillwater, for a My Blue Heaven workshop with the Cimmaron Valley Quilters guild. Two of my classmates are here at the B&B with me – how fun to meet them!
We’ve got 50 quilters gathering for tomorrow’s workshop ---and since I’ve been up since 5am NC time, it’s going to be an early night with some hexies in my room.
All is well in the land where the corn is as high as an elephant’s eye, according to the song.
I’ll catch you tomorrow!
