Inspired by Reading May Blog Hop...
We've worked our way through the 2014/2015 reading list and just have one more book after this before we start the new cycle!  It's really hard to believe that we're going to be starting on our third year soon!  The idea to start the book club originated wi...

Dinner and Dessert...
After our walk at Catawba Falls, we decided to go out for dinner.  We ended up picking King Daddy's in West Asheville.  I've been talking up the poutine since my last visit, so we made a point of ordering it.  Let's just say it didn't disappoint! We also or...

Little Adventures...
I got a message from a friend asking me about what adventures we had planned for our vacation.  While I had a few ideas, one of the things I looked forward to most was spending time with my niece and nephew.  After our trip to the Botanical Gardens, we pick...

Arrival...
We arrived in Asheville late last night in the small hours.  Naturally instead of going right to bed, we spent a few hours chatting and catching up.  Today is our day to acclimate to our surroundings, catch up on errands we did not get to before we left Pen...

Novel Art at the Ligonier Valley Library...
When I was growing up, the library was a special place.  Not only was it the place of answers (this is before one could whip out their phone and Google it), but it was a place where anything could happen... a hero could triumph over adversity, long lost sib...

Time...
Time is a wiggling, squirming thing.  It's slippery like a fish.  It darts and jumps and is hard to catch.  At times though, it seems to stand still, immobile and suspended, even in the most quickly moving waters.  The thing about time is that if you happen...

Catawba Falls...
Azalea had an early dismissal day at school.  So when she got out, we decided to go on a little outing.  The Asheville area is immersed in natural beauty and surrounded by amazing hiking. Instead of going on a hike that we've previously done, we thought it ...

And Before I Go...
It is late at night.  We are about to leave on a trip in the morning.  The house is quiet except for the tumble and whirrrrr of last minute laundry in the washer.  The moon is full and bright, casting moving shadows on the landscape. I'm busily cleaning and...
