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 […]

The Road Home: Pixy’s Predicament

There I was in Asheville by myself. Parents were on their way from Biltmore Baptist to Carrabba’s. I was at Mimi’s house to pick her and my brother up to take them to lunch with us. The drive had been invigorating, and I was looking forward to showing everyone the Overland. I put the car […]

The Road Home

Saturday was the day that we all convoyed up to see Knobby’s Grandma W. By the time we arrived back at Knobby’s parents’ house, we were so exhausted.  We draped ourselves about the house then made one more trip to Chickafil, since it is closed on Sundays, and I wasn’t sure if it was in […]

Visiting Grandma W

Saturday was the day we made a little convoy up to see Grandma W in Roanoke. We wouldn’t all fit into one vehicle, so it was decided Knobby’s sister and her kids would take Garm’s van and Garm, PopPop, Knobby, and I would take our Overland. The night before, we’d agreed on meeting at a […]
