First Flowers

The weather has been unusually warm this year, so the flowers have come out earlier than usual! I was annoyed at the lack of winter this year, but once I saw the flowers popping up everywhere, it was hard to stay mad. Hyacinths are one of my favorites. I planted many more last fall and […]

Staten Island Ferry

The Staten Island Ferry is a free ride between Manhattan and Staten Island in New York City, and has some great city views, so we couldn’t pass it up! This was my first real glimpse at Manhattan. It’s hard to tell just how tall the buildings are when you’re standing right next to them, but […]

Night Snow

Most of the snow fell at night during the big snow storm that come by last month. I love snow so much, I couldn’t help but race around outside late at night, taking pictures of the pretty snow. I purposely left the Christmas lights up, in case of snow. I love the way Christmas lights look […]

Lately

I seem to have taken another inadvertent break from my blog over the past few weeks. Here is a little bit of what has been keeping me busy! We have been hard at work remodeling the cat’s bedroom; turning it into a laundry room/office/cat fun room. I can’t wait to set up and organize my […]

Snow Day

They had been predicting  it for over a week, and it actually happened. A big snow storm! I love snow so much, but since I live in North Carolina, I don’t really get too see it as often as I would like. Luckily it does snow here a few times each winter. Sometimes we only […]

New York City

I’d never spent much time thinking about New York City. But a few years ago I got the idea that I wanted to visit during Christmas time. And as the years went by, my desire to visit this city grew and grew until the next thing I knew, I was buying plane tickets this past […]

Weekly Journal #67

Saturday morning breakfast. I love my Waffle House mug. My latest project. SNOW!!!!  It snowed for the first time this winter, and it was a lot! It’s time to get back in the habit of my Weekly Journal posts, and back into the habit of doing things in general. It feels like I was in […]

Highlights of 2016

2016 was a pretty good year. Here is a look back on some of the highlights of my past year. Visiting Washington DC We had visited  DC about five years ago and had always wanted to return, so this year we decided to get there by train. I had never traveled by train before and it […]

New York City Christmas Sights

For the past few years it has been a dream of mine to visit New York City during Christmas time, and a few weeks ago, I was finally able to! It was our first day there and we just wandered through the city, taking in all the sights, with no particular goal in mind. It was […]

Christmas Tree Patch

Every year, on a cold winter’s evening, we all pile in the car to go to our favorite Christmas Tree patch and help my Mom pick out her tree. The tree patch pops up in late November and surrounds the Krankies coffee air stream trailer with fresh evergreen trees, patiently waiting for a home. I love […]
