To each his own. To me my own.

November

Today has all the makings of a Monday. What better day to start a new month? Alarm clock sounds at 5 am. My bleary-eyed kitty hops on the sink for a drink before I have the chance to gargle and brush. A lonely drive in to work in the overwhelming darkness (go away, daylight savings time). The familiarity of pulling into my comfortable little parking space at work. Deeeep breath.

It was such a wonderful weekend. We drove up to the mountains, in a different area than we normally visit. Near Brevard, NC there’s a town called Linville Falls. With not enough time left in the day to make the trails to the Falls, K suggested the Linville Caverns. I had never been in the Caverns before, it was pretty neat. Of course, we had to hit Woodlands BBQ before we headed home. 🙂

U.S. National Whitewater Center is actually an olympic training facility in Charlotte, NC that I’d never been to in all the years it’s been there. The cool thing about it is there’s a flat fee of five bucks to park – then there’s acres and acres of trails to your liking. We opted for the easy mile track around the ‘river’. Got three miles in, not too shabby! There’s lots of interesting scenery to be had here, unlike my monotonous (yawn) treadmill.

I’d been itching to see Shawshank Redemption again (awesome movie). Although I know many parts of it by heart, I never tire of seeing this flick. Keith built a fire beforehand, I had a nice glass of wine and Camille took her place in front of it.

Yesterday we washed the cars and put a nice winter coat of wax on mine. As I came down the steps this morning, even in the dark ole’ Betsy gleamed to perfection

I never want the weekends to end, but life must continue on. All packed up and back to reality. Blessings to all for a great week!

      Thanks, Carol Ann – I hope yours was great as well. I’d love to claim ownership of the fireplace but it belongs to Keith. 🙂 At least I get to partake in it’s warmth, so I’m not complaining! Blessings…

      Thank you Jane, it sure was – certainly more eventful than normal weekends! Yes I could watch Shawshank once every month for a year, and the amazing thing is I always catch something different or new to me every time I see it. Gotta admit it, I love ‘da Forrest Gump too. 🙂 Have a wonderful week, blessings!
