Weekend Re-Cap in Photos!
If I were to actually make a stop at the Dam I would be in a Parking Lot or at the Bridge going over top of the Dam that you see here.
I wanted to do some thinking. I also wanted to take some photos. It's been a while since my last stop up there. It's one of those places that people from far away visit often but the locals don't usually frequent.
If you visit my Instagram Account you can see more photos and even a short video, too!
This photo is looking down 'water' from the Dam from the same spot. One of these days I might go up to the Dam and the Bridge area and take some more photos to post here.
I wanted to go over to a small waterfall that is tucked off the road into the Allegheny National Forest a bit but ran out of time.
We left our house to make a quick trip up to the Buffalo area and stopped at The Pizza Plant for an early dinner. Of course, I'm always excited because they not only have Vegan Pizza - they have Vegan Cheese for their Vegan Pizza! I wanted to do a different topping for it this time around, tho. Usually, I opt for Tomatoes or Mushrooms. This time I went with the Artichokes. It was fantastic! I ate it for 4 meals!
Driving back wasn't fun. There was a lot of construction. We made a mistake with a detour and went about a half hour out of our way. Oops!
In other news...I've decided to take on another volunteering project. This past month The Dyslexic Advantage eNewsletter was asking for volunteers to voice certain articles of their monthly online magazine. I figured since I'm in radio full-time and have access to the equipment both at work and at home, I thought it was something I could easily do. Plus, I have been wanting to get more involved in advocating for Dyslexics (since I, too, am one).
This past Thursday, there was a chair meeting for our Zonta Club. It was a real eye-opener about just how much we do in our area. I hope to help get the word out more about the efforts. In the meantime, I was asked to chair the Service Committee so I'm looking forward to that, too!
Another thing we did this past weekend was stop in to our some-what-new, local Ollie's Bargain Outlet and we found some extra large fuzzy blankets for cheap. We bought them and some other stuff for the house and I have to say that the blankets are a HIT with the dogs! They LOVE them!
Here is a photo of Cricket sleeping on my lap...on the new blanket, of course.
What did you do over the weekend!?
