So fixed tire before we even got out of driveway. Leave just before sunrise after double checking everything. We both note the traffic headed out of town yet we are happy to be part of that. Stop at stepdads and drop off medicine and hit the road. I grab my pillow and it does not take long to pretend to sleep but just having eyes closed and not moving or thinking about things seems to be the call for the morning. Watch the sunrise over Las Vegas and it is glorious. The drive through Mesquit and Cedar City is happily quiet with smooth music playing. The hills of Provo Utah are turning red and green getting ready for fall, very pretty and wham, back into traffic. We both note the building of a HOV lane and smile. Staying in Lehigh Utah tonight, on the road tomorrow to Jackson Wy. We check out a book given to me at open house called Roadhouse Food, rats, no diners, drive in or dives listed in driving range so dh and i head out to local Olive Garden, glass of wine, mussels, clams, shrimp later, back to hotel, dh urges me to work out with him, really? i am so enjoying the black tie cake sans the work out but maybe the jacuzzi has my name on it? 600 miles today.....and so it begins.
