A Visit To Asheville

My daughter, Miakoda and I took a trip to Asheville, NC to visit my brother and sister-in-law. The visit was in October and we had a grand time. Here are a few snaps of our visit.

This is my sister-in-law, Nancey, my daugter, Miakoda, and my brother, Ron sitting at an outside table at an Irish Pub where we shared poppers and a few Guiness pints.

Miakoda stuck a fall leaf in my hair

This fantastic door was on the courtyard of the pub, isn't it wonderful, I love the colors and texture!

Me at the boarding house that my favortie author's (Thomas Wolfe, a native of Asheville) mother ran.

Miakoda in a park, where we walked around admiring the natural habitat.

I love these doors!

Sweet Music and Feet

Don't even ask why I am posting these together, but they are nice photographs so I am posting them.
Jerry making sweet music!
My feet, for years I have photographed my own feet, I should do a whole page on the progression of my feet, only I don't think anyone would really be interested.

A Trip to the Wildlife Preserve

We took a trip to the Bowman Hill Wildlife Preserve and then went into Lambertville for dinner. It is late or early, however you look at it for the wildflowers, so this is the only blooming flower I found.
It was still a really wonderful day, and just look at these majestic trees!
This is Miakoda, actually a very pretty flower.
I love the way these leaves look.
We followed the trails, and there were mosquitos, but it was beautiful.
Tree roots.

We had a really nice day.
Back home, and me acting (did I say "acting") silly.

Morning and Breakfast

I cannot believe that it has been this long since I have put anything on my blog, I'M SORRY!!!!!!
This morning I jumped (drug myself) out of bed and raced (stumbled) to the kitchen, with a short stop at the bathroom, and a quick jaunt outside for my dog, Nook. I looked around my neat (last nights pots were still in the sink) kitchen, and tried to decide whether to make the coffee or settle for tea (if I wait until someone else gets up, they will grind the beans and make the coffee), so I settled for tea.
My tea cupboard on a good morning. You can see I am so orgainized.
A drink of water and two aspirin for starters!
Okay, so it took me twenty minutes to decide which tea to have and by this time Kode has joined me and we'll wait for Ray to make the coffee.
Looking for something for breakfast, nah, I don't think so.
Yes!!!! This looks much better!
Coffee soon, Ray will be up, I just know it!!!!!
