Weekend Waterview: Here Comes the Sun!


After 10 days of rain and three very wet weekends in a row, we’re enjoying some welcome sunshine! It’s clear and frosty this weekend and fall has definitely arrived in North Carolina. . . The plus side to all our rain is the pond is full! Fall color has peaked and most of the leaves came down with our…

Best Witches for a Happy Howling!

Best Witches for a Happy Howling

Chloe & Gracie give Halloween two paws up! After all, Halloween is all about the treats! I found some pumpkin flavor Howlin’ Goodies Dog Treats at HomeGoods. And witch hats flew home to land on their heads from Hobby Lobby. Getting their hats to stay on their heads is a real trick :) Best Witches for a Happy…

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.

 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: The Dog Days of Summer

Dog Days of Summer

Dog Days: 1. The hot, sultry days of summer when Sirius, the Dog Star, rises in the constellation Canis Major. 2. A period marked by lethargy, inactivity, or indolence. 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…
