The last two days I have been doing volunteer work at Round Top Festival Institute. In one of my first post several years ago I wrote about my convictions of volunteering at this remarkable place.
It was my escape while going through Breast Cancer and when you see some of the pictures I took today then you will understand why I love this place. I promised way back then that if I survived my cancer I would give back to the Institute so when I can I volunteer at the concerts or help in the office.
The main part of the Institute is the amazing concert hall that I will share with you soon. These pictures today are of the Edythe Bates Chapel Plaza that is one of many places to visit on the grounds.
The chapel was locked today but I have shared pictures with you in another post. I think the post was called Highway to Hell. You would have to read the post to understand the strange title. lol
I had trouble downloading pictures but I did manage to share about half of my walk today.
It is the most unusual beautiful place out in the middle of nowhere. Round Top Population is 90 and is known for the Round Top/Warrenton Antiques Fair which is going on there now.
I was so proud of myself for answering the call to help them out on stuffing envelopes these past two days when I could of been out at the antique show.
Truth be known I had just as much fun walking through these grounds after I finished the thousands of envelopes they need stuffed.
I wish I had my blog set up different where you could enjoy these pictures better.
If you want to see the pictures better try double clicking them and enlarge them.
Here is one of several waterfalls. Can you the lion heads in the wall.
One of several cub by holes in the plaza and this one is covered in sea shells. Even the ceiling is covered with shells.
I found myself just snapping away left and right. I wanted you to enjoy some of what I was enjoying today.
Behind this side entry into the plaza is the courtyard where they have receptions.
I will have to go back one day and take pictures just of their gardens.
This pot was attached to one of the walls with pretty little succulents.
Hope you enjoyed seeing how I spent my afternoon.
Recently I made part of my blog into a couple of books. The main reason for doing this was for me to have a written copy of your beautiful, funny, outrageous, and some times mind blowing comments To my big disappointment when I opened up the books they did not have the comments at the end of the post.
I was very upset. I don't know what happened because the first book I had published did have your comments so I spent all this money on these two books and no comments. Any suggestions on how to fix this.
On the subject of comments I have to tell you that your comments about the cowboy catching me in my PJ's left on the previous post had me rolling. You guys crack me up. Laughing out loud is so healthy and I love you for taking the time to come by and especially letting me know how you feel about the post.
Oh before I leave tonight let me share with you a April Fool story. Sunday when Christi was here with her boyfriend Paul and his two children I was talking with the kids about April Fools. I shared with them a silly April Fools story that happened to me in High School and then I told them that tomorrow they should think of something to play on their dad. His little girl ask me what she could do and I told her to use her imagination and have fun with it.
Well Monday night Christi called me and said, "You are so Busted!" I ask her what I did and she told me that Audrey had called her Dad and told him that she was fighting in school and they expelled her.
She said Paul got really upset and told her to put her Mom on the phone. haha Well Audrey then told him that it was April Fools Day and that Christi's Mom told her to do this to him.
OH MY Gosh I am already in trouble with my first meeting with Paul's children. It may be my last if he thinks I told her to tell him that. I only suggested she use her imagination. Boy does she have one.
My kind of girl. haha
We had another storm last night. Since it was still raining today I have not had the chance to see how much of a clean up that I will be doing again.
Hope you had a great day!
Sweet Dreams and Love to All,
PS: I must remember to share with you two ladies that also volunteer out at the Institute. Their both 83 years old look 65 and one actually built her on house from the ground up, She was not a spring chicken when she did this either. haha
