Sunday Chat – Autumn with Wildlife, and a Recipe

The Autumn leaves hit their peak around our place this week, just stunning. Using my good camera and zooming in on the valley, you can see the bright gold and orange in the early morning sunlight. Driving around the area is gorgeous now, with a lot of crimson red, deep rust and gold leaves everywhere. …

Sunday Chat and Fall Color

Fall is coming into some color now, and the turkeys are back. This bachelor flock of four are coming by frequently now. It is fun to see them appear, pecking around for tidbits and acorns. They are a bit shy, only one will come close enough to get a bite of whole grain bread thrown …

Autumn In the Mountains Car Show

This past weekend was our annual car show for the British Car Club. The day began foggy and cool, and cars were arriving early. It was apparent that the cancellation of shows last spring and many over the summer have left our car loving public desperate for some four wheel fun. By the time registration …

Such a busy week this week with the State Fair. I was there five out of the 10 days it is on, with an extra day before it started to help with the quilt competition entries. It was such fun to be able to see the shows and enter the competitions this year, I have …

The Apple Festival is this weekend, with most of the festival restored after last year's cancellations. Time for an apple recipe, a look at some of the festival fun and an apple tablescape or …

Sunday Chat

With the summer winding down, I usually bring out my August placemats and table topper for a new tablescape. This year I haven't been motivated to set a nice table, other than just the basics for me and My Sweet Babboo. So, maybe you'd like to see a couple of past tables with these patchwork …

August Car Club Fun

We've had several drives in our beautiful mountains in the past few days. Although the weather is too warm for me in the afternoons, the mornings have been delightful. On this day, we gathered with our Appalachian Mountain MINI group in west Asheville for a nice drive and lunch. The route took us past lovely …
