Ladies Night

In the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season it was really nice to take the night off from baking or wrapping or card writing to have a Ladies Night Out!

I went out with a few of my friends to Muse Paintbar in Gainesville and WOW...what a fun night.

The place was packed; with everyone painting the same picture it made it easy for the instructors to keep us all moving. We all start off with a blank canvas and then we are guided through the steps to paint our Christmas ornament picture. At some point Laurie and I decided that our paintings needed to be horizontal vs vertical...and I was getting impatient in waiting for instructions so I just plowed right in to the painting.

 Let's start with the first ornament...

Add a second ornament...

And before you know you've added all the finishing touches..this is mine..

We have Laurie's masterpiece...

Laurie's background was a real pretty green..she also added touches of blue in her ornaments..wish I had thought about that..

Her is Beth's...

Beth added tree branches all around her made it look like her ornaments were tucked inside a bunch of tree branches..

This is Jenn's masterpiece...her snowflakes look like stars to me and like her ornaments are flowing above the tree tops...pretty cool dontcha think?

And of course we had to take a picture of all the artist and their paintings...

This was so much fun that I can't wait to do it again..

So have you ever done a wine & design ladies night out? If not..I highly recommend's great for the soul and mind.

Until Next Time

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. Now for those of you that don't know, I lost my father in 2013, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I'm sure I've had dreams about him, but they never seemed real...this one was real. Let me set the dream up for you... I was back in my hometown, Havelock North Carolina, and shopping for some type of necklace, and I hear a voice behind me "not that one, pick the blue one"... I turn around, and there was my father, I started screaming and crying, screams, and tears of joy because there was my father in the flesh. We had a nice long hug, and I asked where he had been because I knew he hadn't been around for almost a full 7 years. It seems that he had been pulled for a special mission with the government and couldn't tell any of us, including my mom. Now, speaking of my mother, she doesn

2021 = Self-Care

 2020 wasn't the best of years, it wasn't the worst, but that is behind us and I'm looking forward to 2021 that is full of blank pages. Walk with me, cook with me, read with me, craft with me...just come out and hang with me. Until Next Time Be Kind


Isn't it funny how there are certain things that can cause a major discussion...religion, politics and the weather.  Spending a good chunk of my life in Eastern North Carolina... See that little town, Havelock, yep that's where I grew up...anyway back to the weather. Ya see, growing up there I know a thing or two about humidity, to say it's thick is an understatement. The threat of hurricanes coming up the coast was an annual event and we took it in stride because that's what you do.  Snow...don't go there, when it snows everything stops, seriously, no road salt trucks, plows, what's that?  In 1989 there was a snowstorm to beat all snowstorms, poor Skip (the local weather legend) is still talking about it. Sitting on my front porch in Virginia this Sunday morning the air is so thick I can actually see it and you can almost taste it..yep it's THICK...and ya know what it feels pretty good.  But ya know what feels better, the a/c when you do walk back
