Atlanta: Three

So far . . . We had failed at the Lenox Square Mall operating hours guessing game. But we’d had a lovely surprise of a view in that night’s hotel, we’d easily gotten things accomplished at the Atlanta Passport Agency, we’d walked around the Olympic Centennial Park we’d seen from our room . . . . […]

Verdant Fields of Grain

This stinker. I spent the first four months of his life trying to encourage him to use a dummy instead of his fingers. Now, NOW the child has joyfully discovered the dummy.  He chews on it while teething. He also: ~Will stand without holding on to something, but isn’t confident enough to move without support. […]

Carolina Inn Wedding Weekend

We attended a wedding this weekend, and turned it into a little mini vacation getaway. Thursday, we drove down to Garm and PopPop’s, in one of the worst rainstorms.  From Marion to Hickory, we crawled.  I say that as “craaaawwwwwwled”.  Couldn’t see past our hood, everyone had their flashers on, it was interstate crawl.  Just […]

Give Me a Parking Lot.

Yesterday . . . well, yesterday I didn’t paint at all. I got up, PLANNING to paint, but we know how that tends to go. Mom didn’t answer her phone, and I decided to go out to her house to check on her and took her some things that she’d left at the house.  (Driving […]

S7 Excess

Barring any surprises or something going wrong, we’ll v. soon be taking delivery of the 2013 Audi S7. Knobby went out of town this weekend to pretend like he was a kid in college again, and on Saturday the car arrived at the dealership.  Mom and I went out for dinner that night, and decided […]

Official.

Well, it’s official:  I’ve officially come down with what I am officially deciding to officially call:  Official Sinus Head. (It’s all so official, you see.  This entry?  OFFICIAL.) Others may choose to call it some humdrum terminology like “seasonal allergies” or the like, but I refuse!  “Seasonal allergies” just sounds so . . . boring. […]

A Moody Biltmore Day

We’ve been trying to make a concerted effort to not let our Biltmore passes go to waste, so we took Ava and Coco out there on what turned out to be a moody day. (Pet peeve:  The more I see people blogging about Biltmore, the more it appears that I need to remind the general […]

Country Exercise

Went to see Mimi today;  she ate really well and then fell asleep right in the middle of our conversation, but when eating (for most of the visit), she was sharp! Looked across the table and told Knobby that he had great teeth, to take care of them. Then, after she finished her pie, she […]

In Which Pixy Plays Biltmore Tourist

*Yawn*  I’m tired. I left off on Thursday . . . I was actually just sitting down to write something which would have, no doubt, been thoroughly NOT entertaining, when Knobby asked “Are you ready?”. This, you see, is how MOST of our ventures out are announced.  Doesn’t matter if it’s errands or fun surprises, […]

Back to the Cornfields We Go

Our short visit to North Carolina was over, and we woke up Monday morning, packed our things, and went to Chickafil for one last lunch with Knobby’s sister and her kids. It snowed just a tiny dusting during the night/early morning, and little tiny flakes were dancing around still as we went for our delicious […]
