Lighting the Way in North Carolina

One of my favorite things to do is to go visit lighthouses.   In our 31+ years of marriage we have seen our fair share of lighthouses and I really should have kept track of each and every one but alas---I have not been that organized and there is no documentation that I have done other than disorganized photographs. On our recent trip to North Carolina we visited 2 separate lighthouses and of course I took tons of pictures----all of them look basically the same but hey----you can never have … [Read more...]

Teapot Tuesday

Baby--it's cold outside!!!!   I am dreaming of blue skies, bright sun and tropical music today as we endure yet more winter weather in our state.  It was brutal last night and at times the wind gusts clocked at 60 MPH.  It is no wonder our grill cover came "un- bungee-corded"  and the side table is now a vertical rather than horizontal side table. In honor of the freezing cold I selected a summer themed pot from my collection to make us all feel just a bit warmer today.   Of course I had to … [Read more...]

I’ve Been Dreaming of the Perfect Car—-I May Have Found It!

Finally.  The perfect car.  Oh yes---I know what you are thinking.  We all have specific ideas of what comprises the perfect vehicle but I think I may have found it and it could be mine for just one short day.  The Weinermobile---yes---you read correctly.  The Weinermobile. For a very short time anyone can join in on the chance to "lease" the car for the day by simply tweeting about their love of  all things Weinermobile.  The contest is the brain child of the  Oscar Mayer folks and for a … [Read more...]

Slightly Savory Saturday

We are always looking for great ways to cook vegetables in our house.  Brussels sprouts are a favorite as well as asparagus, cauliflower and broccoli.  Anytime I can find a different way to prepare them I am all excited about trying it out. At Christmas we were in Raleigh with both of the boys at Aaron's townhouse and his kitchen puts mine to shame so we were able to have a perfect Christmas dinner with all the favorites---ham, green bean casserole and this time I tried a new cauliflower … [Read more...]

Come Take Me Away

Doesn't that picture just scream "COME TAKE ME AWAY?" I think the cold has gone to my head.  Or else my "Living la Vida Lamo" has started to take a toll on me.   I am making silly mistakes.   Chris looks at me and says "Should I be worried about you?"   I hope not.   I don't think that I am quite ready for assisted living but if too many more things happen I might be moving across the street and kitty cornered to the place in our neighborhood. I always like to get the coffee ready to go the … [Read more...]
