West Virginia… Mountain Mama…

Well, I’m not a mountain mama, but I did drive through West Virginia today. I think I’ve finally convinced myself that I do not have to go as fast as everybody else. Driving slower than the speed limit makes me feel safer and they can just GO AROUND! LOL

I stopped for lunch at this place

It’s called Tamarack, The Best of West Virginia. It’s a showplace for local artisans and craftsmen and everything on display is for sale. They even have little rooms where you can watch an artist in action. The items include everything you could imagine,¬†glassware, paintings, wooden toys, clothing, metalware, ¬†furniture, pottery, food. All items come from West Virginia businesses, mostly small individual entrepreneurs. What a great concept to showcase the local talent.

There’s a restaurant that serves downhome country cooking. I had two kinds of pie: a savory chicken pot pie and a slice of peanut butter pie. Yum! And I bought only one thing.

I’m headed to the east coast, somewhere in South Carolina. Searching for warmth and sunshine. The temperature hasn’t been cooperating, though. It’s cold, windy, and I saw snow flakes this morning. Arrgggh!
