Goodbye Summer Comforter!

I have really enjoyed this Summer set!  It is beautiful!  Guess it's time to decide what to put on the bed for Fall and Winter.

Sweet Tea with Peach

Hello sweet tea lovers!  I remember years ago going to a wedding in Charleston, South Carolina and at the reception having peach flavored iced tea.  It was delicious!  Funny, I haven't thought about that in years. 

I found a great easy way to have it at home and I thought I'd share it with you.

Family trivia, with a tidbit of history thrown in:  My daddy told me something when I first started dating Chuck years ago.  He said, "You dating a mater masher"?  Yes he did! He had only a few years before been fighting in WWII against the Italians. That, of course changed when they became our allies,  Before then, the American soldiers called them 'Mater Mashers'.

Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence has finally come and gone from our area.  We are seeing flooding and damage happening in some areas.  I guess in the coming days and months we will know the extent of damage suffered.

Are You Ready?


Hurricane Florence is taking it's sweet time making landfall.  First of all it can't make up it's mind where it wants to go and then changes it several times.  Seriously they've narrowed the path down pretty much.  

It has been a busy week preparing for this storm and we are worn out! Every tub in the house is full of water as well as many more containers.  I guess, we are close to being ready for the blame thing.  We might as well be, it's finally coming.

Chuck and I did a major put away of things yesterday.  Today I took a walk to check on the backyard animals. They are a funny bunch that's for sure.

Please Don't Go

I do enjoy Summer and always hate to see it go.  I say that, and as I say that, I think, "What am I saying?  It is at this moment 93 degrees outside."  Just because the children are in school doesn't mean it has to end, well, does it?
