Weekend Waterview and Tidbits

Happy Sunday! We took an early morning boat ride, enjoying the sunshine and a nap on the pontoon. Flying our flag for 9/11 with some plane contrails visible in the blue sky. Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on White Dog Therapy and your thoughts and prayers for our family. Your comments were so touching they…

Happy Motoring

    While our preferred method of exploring Key West was by foot, this 4 mile by 2 mile wide island is an ideal size to navigate by bike or scooter.          Accessorizing your basket on your bike makes for happy motoring. . .        As well as a colorful paint job on your scooter~…

Seeking Indigo

 Seeking Indigo for Rainbow Summer School for Mrs. Matlock’s class, led me to return to Charleston, SC~ which we visited several weekends ago. From South Carolina Indigo Plantations The Forgotten Cash Crop of History: Indigo, or indigotin, is a dyestuff originally extracted from the varieties of the indigo and woad plants. Indigo was known throughout the ancient…

Charleston Whites

We recently visited Charleston, South Carolina for the weekend. In addition to a diner’s destination & delight, it is a city chock full of wonderful architecture. . .full of columns, fluted pilasters, wrought iron, and architrave moldings on historic buildings and homes. We park the car for the weekend when we arrive and enjoy walking, so we don’t miss anything. . .it also helps offset our calorie consumption :-)  History…

We Interrupt This Blog. . .

      We interrupt this blog due to finger trauma. A trip to Urgent Care & six stitches later, I am happy to report that my finger survived, but my friend Ginny’s sweet grandmother’s (Meemaw) glass pedestal did not :-(      It put up a good fight, it was wickedly sharp.     I have all 10 fingers,…

Love this blog

At the moment, I’m frantically searching for a food vignette in my favorite book of hers, Between, Georgia so that I can use it for a food for thought review. Read Joshilyn’s post from Tuesday, titled…
