Traveling The Natchez Trace Parkway - Colbert Ferry


 At mile marker 327.3 along the Natchez Trace, you will come to Colbert Ferry.


At this stop there used to be a stand and a ferry in the early 1800's that was operated by Chickasaw George Colbert.


Here you will find fishing, a boat launch, a bike-only campground and restrooms.
 
John Coffee Memorial Bridge

 At this stop you can also see the John Coffee Memorial Bridge crossing the Tennessee River. You will cross over this bridge while you are traveling the Natchez Trace Parkway, but we thought it was cool to see it from the underside.

Weekly Goals for the week of August 18, 2014


Last week was a good week and got lots of things done. Here is what I wanted to get done last week.
  1. I have to write a blog post for the Home and school Mosaics website.
  2. I want to write 2 blog posts for the Mickey Mom's website. One for this month and one for next month.

  4. Do something fun as a family this weekend.
  5. See how much stuff we can clear out of our house this week.
  6. Work out at least 3 times this week.( I worked out 1 time this week.)

As you can see I got just about everything crossed off my list. This week is going to be a little different. I have big plans for this week and hopefully I can get a lot done this week. I am wanting to really kick things into gear and get the house whipped into shape. So I have some big plans.

But anyway, Here is what is on my weekly goal list this week.
  1. I want to write 2 blog posts for the Mickey Mom's website. One for this month and one for next month.
  2. Get rid of 1 bag of stuff each day this week. Be it in the form of garbage or stuff to sell or give away.
  3. Work on deep cleaning the house. Hopefully getting 4 areas done. (the living room, the kitchen/dinning room, the main bathroom, the hallway where we have our bookshelves and books. Our hallway is about 5 feet wide.)
  4. Finish reading 2 books to the kids.
I think if I complete this list I will be doing good.

Grocery University - Big sale tomorrow

Have you heard about Grocery University? Grocery University is a course that was produced by Carrie Isaac from Colorado Bargains in 2010. Grocery University helps you save money on your grocery bill. I have the old version and I am looking forward to getting the new updated version tomorrow. She has sold a lot of copies of this course over the years. Word got out to Crystal from Money Saving Mom that Carrie was going to stop selling this popular course and Crystal bought the rights to the course several months ago. The Money Saving Mom team has reworked some of the course and tomorrow August 19, 2014, they are going to re-launch this course tomorrow. The price of this course is usually $9.97 but since they are re-launching the course they are having a sale in Money Saving Mom fashion. For tomorrow only you can get this reworked Grocery University course for as low as $2.99.

Here is how the pricing is going to work tomorrow:
  • 5 a.m. CT - we’ll kick things off with the low, low price of $2.99
  • 8 a.m. CT - price goes up to $3.99
  • 11 a.m. CT - price goes up to $4.97 
  • 2 p.m. CT - price goes up to $5.97

Traveling The Natchez Trace Parkway - Freedom Hills Overlook


At mile marker 317.0 along the Natchez Trace Parkway, you will come to Freedom Hills Overlook.



Here at Freedom Hills Overlook, you can walk up a steep quarter mile paved trail to Alabama's highest point on the Trace.


Once you get up to the top you are at 800 feet above sea level. I must warn you, it is a steep climb, but there is a couple of places to sit and rest if you need to. I know I was glad to see those benches.


Once you get up there the view was just breathtaking. I was so glad I went up there and made the hard walk up there.

Traveling The Natchez Trace Parkway - Tishomingo State Park

 
At mile marker 304.5, you will find Tishomingo State Park. The Natchez Trace actually goes through part of the park, but you can actually get off the Natchez Trace Parkway and go visit the park. 

We chose to go see the park, since I have always wanted to go see this particular park. It cost us 3-4 dollars to enter for the day use fee.


To us it was well worth going to see this state park. We even got to walk on the suspension bridge.

There was on old log cabin, that you can walk to and look at.
