Stow in the Wold

So, today our Lewis clan ventured into the Cotswolds, which I have to say is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. It was so serene and really other wordly. It's easy to see why so many authors and poets write about seasons and beautiful scenery, and other worlds full of magic for that matter. So, I've decided that if I really decide to go into writing, I will have to have a house out here. It's just plain inspiring here.

Yesterday, we went to London. We saw Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and a wonderful show of Les Mis. The London cast is said to be the best, and now I know what all the hype is about. They were wonderful. I was moved to tears countless times. What a wonderful story and wonderful music. Of course, my camera decided to be stubborn and not work once we got our first glimpse of the palace, but that's life.

Here are some pictures of the Cotswolds....

A typical backyard garden in the Cotswolds. So gorgeous.

Here are some friends and me at some Norman ruins in a town called Stow in the Wold. The structure, which I think is an old church or castle is over 500 years old. It was great. The girls are Meredith and Mallory. We're having so much fun.

I'm sorry but that is not a "typical" backyard! That is something out of a dream! Emily I am so jealous!

Your comment reminded me of the project I had started...I was moving different blogs over to a new type list category and then stopped in the middle of doing it...So, I added back a few sites to the main list until I get inspired to organize things again. :-P But hey, while we're on the topic, how about sharing some hits with me, too? And I don't mean off your crack pipe.

This comment is dedicated to the memory of Rick James.

Todd, it's a deal if you remove certain choice words from your one line description :) I do have young people checking this site :)

Viva Rick James!

The choice word has been removed. Hey, who had the biggest butt in the Bible? Give up? It was Abraham, because he tied his ass to a tree and walked for a mile.

Thank you, I'll be here all week.

LOL. Man, I haven't heard that one in a while. I'm now typing on the most annoying keyboard ever invented. They switched the z and y keys (soooo annoying...just notice how many y's are in just this post) and all the other symbols and things have been moved as well...hate European keyboards. Todd, consider your blog on the inner circle :)
