It’s been one year!

I can’t believe it’s been one year since I have posted anything on my blog!  Shame on me!  I am going to try and catch up by posting a few pictures that were taken each month of last year.  I hope I remember how to do this.  So, here goes!

Went to Flying Cloud Farm to pick some beautiful flowers for the house.IMG_1366 (Small)Flowers for the bedroom.

In the beginning of August my sisters  and Peter came to visit for a week.  We went from Black Mountain to Lake Lure to Hendersonville to show them a good time.  When you view the pictures, it looks like the only thing we did for a week was eat.

IMG_1376 (Small)One night for dinner we went to our favorite Italian restaurant, Nona Mia’s.  Jeannie, Peter and Pudi loved it. Buddy and  his beer.

The next day we went to Lake Lure.  We were going to take the boat around the lake, however, it was pouring rain.  We went to Larkins to have lunch.  Larkins is right on the water.  We ate outside under the covering and still could see the lake.

IMG_1380 (Small)Salads for all.

Peter really hates cats.  So my Faith was determined to make him like her.  She followed him everywhere and always found his lap.  While eating dinner one night, Peter put his hat on the floor next to him.  Faith sat on it through the entire meal.  I think she may have changed his mind about cats.

While Jeannie, Pete and Pudi were here Pati and Joe came up from South Carolina to visit.

The next day was Biltmore Estate.

IMG_1403 (Small) (2)After touring the house, we went to the Stable Restaurant for lunch.

IMG_1404 (Small)Yummy!

IMG_1407 (Small)When we got home we found that Faith had kept Pudi company so she wouldn’t be all alone.  She is such a sweetie.

Next day was Hendersonville.  We walked the streets and did some shopping.  Afterwards, we went to Mike’s on Main for lunch.  It is an old fashion drugstore with a lunch counter and tables.  The food is very good.  When I am in Hendersonville and want a quick lunch, it’s Mike’s.

IMG_1416 (Small)And a juke box that really works.

Jeannie, Peter and Pudi left and it was so quiet around here for a long time.  I really miss my family.  I wish we all lived in the same town like we did growing up.  All my aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins lived in the same town.  That was really family life.

I will try to catch up some more later, but now I have to go down and work on my kitchen.  Wait to you hear about that!

  • You have certainly put me to shame – super nice blog entries. In 20 years it will be nice to go back and read these! Joe reminds me of Pop-Pop. Mark looks just like his Jeannie. The 4 of you together look great. Pudi reminds me of me and cats — always nudging them but boy we love them so much!
