Three Years Ago Today

Three years ago, today, I hopped in a crammed full rented minivan with my three dogs and headed out following a UHaul truck full of all my possessions with my Mustang in tow. Just three short days before was my last day at my job…

The Final Chapter

I closed a book this week…..the final chapter was complete and the story has ended.  As with all books you truly love reading, the ending came with mixed emotions – on one hand the story will always remain with you in memories, but on…

The Wind

Wind.  A word that can summon up a lot of emotion.  It can feel good, make wind chimes ring out a beautiful melody, give clothes hanging outside a fluffy feel and fresh smell, air out a house, ruin a perfectly good hair-do, and power a sail…

Miracles and Angels……they do exist!

Miracles and Angels…….two things people talk about in the abstract…….many believe in one or the other or both, some don’t believe in either, but you rarely hear of someone who has proof of either…….they are typically more of a “feeling” or a figure of speech to…

Review – Temple Theatre Presents Guys and Dolls

The new Temple Theatre season has begun and the first show of the season – Guys and Dolls – provides that season opener “WOW” factor that the theatre has become known for!  Of course, you can never go wrong with a show at the Temple Theatre,…

What I’m looking forward to…..and what I’ll miss…..

A Big Day For Sanford

Yes, today was a big day for Sanford…..a major milestone in the evolution of our town……a long awaited arrival finally came to fruition!  At 6:30 this morning, the newest Chick-fil-A location opened and at 9:00 the ribbon was cut with more anticipation, hoopla, and ceremony than a visit from…

Recovery…Renewal…And Life Goes On

It has been two months and four days since the devastating tornado ripped through our town and a week and a day since I took my tumble at the movie theater in Cary.  Both seem like forever ago.  The two events, of course, can not…

Terrified…..Heartbroken…..Grateful

As I stood out on my deck this morning watching the girls play in the yard, I looked up and noticed this gorgeous blue sky with birds singing in the trees and squirrels racing along the branches.  So peaceful, so lovely, so calm!  It brought the…

Weekend Words

What a great weekend this was……perfect weather (until it got a little cooler today, but still nice), and lots of thoughts clanging around in my brain!  So, it is time for  a brain dump and to just ramble on about the things I did…

Movie Review – The King’s Speech

I haven’t been to the theater to see a movie in quite a while — since before the holidays, I believe!!! No particular reason. It isn’t because of lack of interest – quite to the contrary, I am still in love with movies. It…
