Weekend Forecast: Rain with a Chance of Napping


We’re getting some much-needed rain and we’re pretty dog gone excited about it! It’s going to take a lot more rainy weekends to fill up the lake but we’ll take what we can get. Our neighbor’s floating dock is no longer floating. . . And our lake-fed irrigation intake has long been out of the water.…

A Fall Nook on the Porch


 Fall is only a week away by the calendar and while it may take longer for Mother Nature to get the memo here in the South, I’m counting down the days!  We had a some cooler weather over the weekend with morning temperatures in the 50s and highs in the 70s, making it enjoyable to be on the…

Weekend Waterview: A Piece of the Rainbow


We’ve been a little glum about the lack of water in the pond.  .  . We’ve had a few pop up showers this week, any rain at all is welcome!  Lake Norman is about 5 1/2 feet down from full pond. Staring at red clay doesn’t quite evoke the same feelings of calm and serenity as a…

We’re feeling lethargic in the Dog Days of Summer and it’s dog gone hot and dry here. Our lake level is down 5 feet from full pond and our…

Weekend Waterview: Early Lake Morning


We’re early risers at our house, even on the weekends. Mainly because of these two who need to go out, demand to be fed, then proceed to go back to sleep.  I took these photos yesterday around 7 am.  It was a delightful 69 degrees and low humidity! More 90+ degree temperatures ahead for us today and…

We had the first boat ride of the season last weekend. . . The highlight of every dog’s weekend. Enjoying the wind in our ears again. . . And in our tails. Gracie’s showing signs of boating bliss. . . Or possibly spring pollen allergies :) We all take allergy meds in our house in the spring…
