Weekend in the Smoky Mountains !

We just returned from a long weekend in the Mountains, it was a wonderful relaxing time. We stayed in the 1937 Inn. It was like going back in time! We had coffee in one of the sitting rooms each morning,a nice breakfast in the dinning room. After a day of sight seeing and shopping we returned to the Inn to have warm apple cider on the porch , in a rocker in front of the outdoor fireplace. On the way home we stopped and atexat The "Dillard House" it was all you could eat served family style. There was no way we could eat all that food they put on the table to begin with, we sure did not need seconds on anything! A wonderful weekend!

Halloween is coming !

I am busy today getting ready for Halloween and the many trick-or - treater's we have each year. Last year a neighbor counted 700. Our subdivision closes the streets to traffic , no one has a fence in the front(home owner association rules)
so we are very popular on Halloween. Most of the residents do a lot of decorating and its a fun time for all!

Sad, sad week !

It is with a sad and heavy heart that I write this post. A week ago today my brother's girlfriend passed away unexpectedly. They were getting married this month. They have been together over a year and she already was like part of our family. I miss her so much already. My heart aches for my brother. They did not have long enough together. She was diagnosed with leukemia several months ago, finished her chemotherapy and was cancer free. She went back in the hospital Thursday to get blood platelets,just routine since her chemo, she was feeling fine, looking forward to the future. She got up and went to the bathroom and fell hittng her head and died. Rip "Toni" we love you !
