Time for a field trip to Fort Hill

What a beautiful day!  The sun is shinning and it is 61 degrees outside
My DH is plowing a garden this afternoon!  After all the snow and rain,
we decided to get out and take a field trip together this morning.

One of our favorite places to visit is the historic home, Fort Hill, in
Clemson, SC.  I was trying to explain to my DH that I wanted to
decorate our guest room like one of the bedrooms restored in Fort Hill.
He couldn't visualize what I was saying so he suggested we take the
drive.  Fort Hill was home to John C. Calhoun's family and Thomas
Clemson's family.  It is beautifully restored. I'm sorry I forgot my
camera this morning.  After touring the home, I realized the room in
my memory was not there.

Then, on the long drive back, I remembered the room I was thinking
about had been in my grandma's house. :-)  I was embarrassed to tell
DH I had mixed up the memories, but he just laughed.  I think he is
getting used to me mixing up memories.  It was a nice day for a drive,

Grandma's house burned years ago.  Wish we could visit again.

Now, time for me to get outside in the sunshine and get to work!  Hope you have a great week!


  1. I can't remember things the same way others do either. What a wonderful trip to take. We had warm temps too and we did not get to work in the yard, but we did make plans for Spring.


  2. The memories we make contenue to brighten each day.
