Sunday Chat with a Lemon Tablescape

Last weekend, we had our neighbors up for a cookout. I had thought to just leave up my July 4th tablescape, but that holiday was over, and it seemed that a summer theme was in order. So I put my blue and yellow table topper back on the table and added a yellow ceramic basket …

Fun on the Fourth

Last weekend was a fun holiday weekend with lots of activities. We started the weekend at Mountain Fresh Orchards on Saturday, having lunch with our friend, Jeff. He had a booth there with his wonderful pottery, and I think he made this green bowl just to tempt me. It is a cereal bowl size and …

Fun Run to Strawberry Hill

With summer in full swing, car club events are more frequent. We are enjoying our warm days, abundant sunshine and not too hot temps in the mountains. We met early at a visitor center on the Blue Ridge Parkway for a nice drive though some back roads down to South Carolina. There were so many …

Sunday Stitching, Making Plans, and More Wildlife

Over the past few weeks, I've finished up all the Zoom contracts that I had for my Scrap Dancing program. On the last two, I mentioned that I would be doing a tutorial on Pin Weaving. I thought I could just link the Moda Bake Shop post, but their website update appears to have dropped …

This year, a new art mural was completed in Hendersonville to bring attention to our pollinators and their importance to our ecosystem. Artist Matt Wiley worked on this for months, beginning in 2019, with a pause during lockdown last year. Mr Wiley's …

Sunday Chat and Critter Watch

Someone was sitting nicely, paws folded on our front door mat the other day. The mat says 'wipe your paws' but I'm not sure he did so. Still, cuteness abounds and peanut butter sandwiches needed to be made and offered. This week, I made my Summer Squash Casserole, with a slight change. After mashing the …

Virginia Road Trip

Getting out with the car clubs again has been a real treat. We are once again meeting new people and enjoying our beautiful world. Last week we were able to participate in a long-planned overnight trip to Abingdon, Virginia with long time blogger friend Mary (who blogs at The Inside Stori) and her husband, plus …

Sunday Chat

Seems like the number of activities has increased exponentially lately. Maybe it is just the contrast from the past year of staying home. We are playing pickleball a couple of times a week now, and doing more with friends as well. Two trips to Atlanta to deal with issues with my mother in law's home …
