Outside My Window ~ June 26, 2016

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW…is a relatively warm day.  Current temperature is 76° with 55% humidity. It is a bit muggy outside which is why I am inside.  It would probably be a good beach day though.  I haven’t been to the beach in a while though….I can’t tolerate the heat and humidity like I once could….or […]

Outside My Window ~ 9.9.2013

Outside my window…is a Monday rather than a Sunday so I have Williamsburg in my view.  Currently we are at 83°F with mostly cloudy skies.  The forecast for the week looks very much the same as today…. mostly sunshine and temperatures warming up to the low 90’s by mid-week.  It has been quite dry, I believe […]

Destination: Charlotte/Catawba

Been away for a bit…. …back home now….heat and humidity welcomed us with hot, muggy arms…. …while our hearts were still lingering with those that we love. Thanks for having us Papa and Nina…. ♥  We love and miss you both!  ♥

I waited too late…

I waited too late to do my weekly post this evening…and now I’m too tired.  Catch everyone tomorrow.  

Charlotte, North Carolina

Yesterday you learned about a train…. …that would take us to the center of the city. The wish to see downtown Charlotte was still a wish as I sat at the kitchen table with Nina our first morning in South Carolina…until she mentioned the train to the city.  I knew the wish could become a reality, so we made a plan.  We […]

The Train That Made Wishes Come True

Each time we have visited my parents in South Carolina, my youngest has asked if we could go into downtown Charlotte, North Carolina ~ right over the border from my parents house.  Traffic in an extra large city can be crazy if you know where you are going…but in a strange city, not a adventure I was anxious […]

Things that made me smile this week…

My favorite vacation spot….   …with my family… …coffee and breakfast with my dad each morning… …taking time to smell the flowers… …push-up lovin’ lizards… …more of these beautiful birds than you could count visiting with us each day… …good times and wonderful memories… Thanks for having us Papa & Nina… we miss you already!

Shawboro, North Carolina

A few photographs from the little town I visited a few weeks ago. I spent lazy summer days in this little town many, many years ago. The old post office….I remember when this was brand new. The new one is next door ~ but the building wasn’t near as interesting as this one.  🙂 Older homes […]

Biltmore House

During my vacation last month, I had the chance to visit the Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina.  I shared this view of the house with you when I posted about the Blue Ridge Parkway a few days ago.  While it may appear that we are quite close to the house, we are actually quite far away.   Yes, […]

Blue Ridge Parkway

I had the opportunity to travel into the Blue Ridge Mountains via the Blue Ridge Parkway during my vacation last month.  We left my parents home in Catawba, South Carolina and headed west to the Forest Heritage Scenic Byway just outside of Brevard, North Carolina.  Our first destination….Looking Glass Falls.   I featured a photograph of the falls last […]
