You think that all Stacy Lyn does is sit around and dream on her bayou, don’t you? “Trees this,” she says, and “writing that.” Or, “I knitted, I cooked, I pondered.”
“Blah blah blah,” we – Stacy Lyn’s Traveling Socks – respond to all her pondering! Stop contemplating and do something!
Well, we are happy to say that Stacy Lyn does leave the bayou on the occasion when the allure of friendship calls.
On a particular chilly weekend in January, it was friends David and Rhonda beckoning. They were gracious enough to host the old ball and chain and her magnificent husband Norm, not to mention treat them to an afternoon at beautiful Mt. Nebo near Russellville, Arkansas.
First stop was the welcome center where a fire was roaring in the wood stove. Stacy Lyn warmed her freakishly cold toes there. Though she does love a good fire, she’s not a pyromaniac. She just seems like it if you don’t know her well.
we she warmed up a bit, we headed outside to the beautiful vistas of Sunrise Point.
There, Stacy Lyn trekked down a path so that we could pose for the camera.
As always, Stacy Lyn gawked over the trees, like this little fellow who was growing out of the side of a rock, of all places.
From there, her eyes led her to a nature-made wall of those rocks. She fell in love with Nebo’s rocks. She’s so weird.
Next stop, we followed the setting orb over to Sunset Point, where Helios got caught so elegantly in this tree. Oops. Stacy Lyn’s tree fascination must be rubbing off on us Socks.
Then – more vistas to gaze upon in awe.
Shadows lengthened as sunlight dipped below the horizon, and it was time to say goodbye to Mt. Nebo.
We are ever grateful that Stacy Lyn has friends like David and Rhonda to lure her away from her dream bayou. Is there ever a better reason to leave home than to reconnect with people you love?

A beautiful look at a corner of Arkansas. Thanks socks!
Glad you were able to get Stacy in guitar.

Gear! Gear, not guitar.
Oh, we were wondering. Stacy Lyn doesn’t play guitar, though she used to fantasize about being Nancy Wilson. ❤
For some reason my comment never showed up here…?
Wow, you had quite an escape and with such clear view for the beautiful area from that special rock, called Mt. Nebo.
So glad you got to do that with special friends.
Hugs to you,
I don’t know why they don’t show up immediately, Mariette, but I can see them when I log in….technology!!
Thanks for visiting – hope you had a grand time with your mom. ❤

Also Mom & Dad’s 65th wedding anniversary was a very special day for celebrating with 51 family members: http://networkedblogs.com/Uwpdx
They earned their Royal mail!
Hugs and happy weekend to you.
Glad you had a wonderful time. Good to see you again! ❤
Gorgeous vistas, Socks! And trees! And that wall! Is it possible it’s a drystone wall, make by someone? It looks so purposeful. But do speak more kindly of Stacy, will you? or I might have to visit and teach her how to make ‘sock monkeys’ . . . 😉 ~ Linne
We Socks can attest that Stacy Lyn would love to learn how to make sock monkeys! ❤
They are easy. I will keep an eye out for the pattern; I can scan it and email it. Not in the very near future, I don’t think. It’s here ‘somewhere’ or maybe in the storage . . .
That’s ok – whenever you have a chance. Right now I’m working on a Christmas tree skirt (so that it will be finished in time!) and then I’m going to do some sewing – new drapes and a rag doll. ❤
