Sunday Chat and the Mountain State Fair

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 …

More Fun at the State Fair

Having two year's worth of projects to choose from meant lots of entries into the Mountain State Fair. I had to go back twice to the expo building to find them all! During the cooking contests, we had about an hour each time to enjoy the shows and exhibits, see the Moo-ternity ward's newborn calves, …

Sunday Chat and State Fair Fun!!

This week the mornings turned cooler, putting me in the mood for the fall season. Add to that the fair starting up, and I am happy as a clam. This past week, I worked my shift at the quilt competition take-in table for those entering the competition to drop off their entries. I entered a …

It’s Apple Festival Time

It has cooled off for a few days, with gloriously crisp mornings putting me in the mood for Autumn days ahead.

Fun Drive in the Mountains

Last weekend, we had a summer fun run with one of our car clubs. This club is primarily old British cars, and the turnout was fantastic. It was apparent that everyone had a serious case of cabin fever. We met in Etowah, a very small community west of Hendersonville. Yes, those are two yellow Jaguars, …

Sunday Chat

It was a week of flitting from project to project. Somehow my concentration was a bit off. Early mornings were cool, but the days warmed up fast to hot and humid. On the bird feeder this week, a mom cardinal brought her son. You can see he is almost done molting his baby feathers and …
