Simple + Southern Sunday No. 14

“For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy”
‭Psalm‬ ‭92‬:‭4

We kept the roads hot this past week…from Lafayette, LA to Raleigh, NC- but unfortunately not together!  Butch had a business trip to Louisiana and I had a fun trip to North Carolina. Hope you enjoy images from around home and three other states in our beautiful South!

Cathedral of St John the Evangelist in Lafayette, LA

The Peach Water Tower in Gaffney, SC is called the Peachoid and is 135 feet high and holds 1 million gallons of water.  It is undergoing a new paint job due to last winter’s harsh weather.

Our local beavers have been busy on Turkeytown Creek!

Cute Max is serious about reporting for work-gotta punch that time clock!

An original one room school house built in 1880 now located in Gaffney, SC.

I have never met a dessert that I didn’t like, and this was no exception-Bananas Foster in a Raleigh restaurant!

Who knew you could have fun tasting balsamic vinegars in an olive oil shop in Raleigh?!

Flowers always make me smile!

“I was glad when they said to me,
‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’”
Psalm 122:1
