Clyde, The Doer

But I grew to love and respect him through the many life stories related to me by his family. He was a man of great wisdom, a historian and a patriot. I think the world could use more doers.

Every Day is Saturday

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

“When you’re retired, every day is Saturday”. That’s a direct quote from my hubby. So when the weather forecast on Thursday predicted it was going to be a beautiful day, we headed to Ft. Mountain State Park in Chatsworth, GA. What better way to spend the day than hiking to the top, having a picnic lunch and taking in the gorgeous views. Wish you had been there.

I almost forgot…we saw a small black bear. Thank goodness he was crossing the road  in front of us instead of crossing our hiking trail!

A Beautiful Knock-Out

IMG_7936IMG_7930It’s that time of year again. Beautiful plants are blooming all over Georgia. Our knock-out roses are no exception. The multiple blooms and vibrant color tells me they’ve been enjoying the recent rains.

The Tea Party

Today was a special day doing two of the things I like best – eating and being with awesome friends. I can always count on Camarie, our hostess, to set a beautiful table. It’s fancy, festive and colorful. Delicate teapots and teacups surround a bounty of excellent food. Walking out the door with my gift of home-made lemon bars and cinnamon pecans, I am refreshed and renewed. Friendships are treasures of the heart.

Family Friday: #3 Grandson

IMG_7985A couple of weeks ago Collin was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. Watching him receive this honor reminded me of how quickly he’s grown into the young man he is today. I couldn’t be more proud of him.  Love you CW.
