Home Is Where the Heart Is

Home is not just a physical place; it's so much more than wood, bricks, and mortar.  It's a haven and a place to gather in from the elements and be with those we love.

Super Bowl 50

Well folks, only two more days until the big game, and I'm on the horns of a dilemma.

Catching Up From January

I'm behind on many of the things I want to write about because I took almost the whole month of January off.  I'm glad to be back, because I really missed blogging; but I also discovered the longer you stay away, the harder it is to start back.

I'm not typically a big celebrity watcher, but there were some big celebrity deaths in the news last month, and when this happens it often makes me aware of my own age and mortality.  Yes folks, the years are flying by.

In chronological order, the first of these celebrity deaths was David Bowie.  I was never a fan of his, but lots of people were.  David was 69 years old and died from cancer.

Four days later, one of my very favorite actors passed away -- Alan Rickman.  I will so miss his wonderful performances in the movies and television.  He, too, was 69 years old and died from cancer.  I had no idea he was sick, so the headline really threw me for a loop.  We're big Harry Potter fans here, and my husband and I saw him in every Harry Potter movie.



Biltmore House, Part 2

I apologize for the fact that this post is way overdue.  I wrote Part 1 in early January, but I was forced to take some time off from blogging because of some obligations here at home.  I hadn't planned to be away so long, but next time I have to take a break, I'll let people know so it doesn't look like I've abandoned my blog for good.

You probably want to see Valentine's posts and spring posts by now, but I did promise to finish sharing with you our trip to Biltmore; so even though this was a Christmas tour, here it is for anyone who's still interested.

A Visit to Biltmore House

As part of our Christmas gift to each other, Mr. Forest Manor and I decided to take a candlelight tour of Biltmore House this past year.  My husband made reservations online for an evening tour and dinner at the Stables Cafe restaurant right on the property.

A Fresh, New Start

Hi everyone -- I hope you're enjoying sunshine in your part of the world today!  I can't tell you how glad I am to finally have sunshine again; it lifts my spirits considerably.  From what I can gather, a lot of people were sick during the holidays; it seems like so many people had bronchitis.  I hope everyone has recovered completely.

Winter Guest Room

I hope this post finds you all well and ready for another year.  It's been a bit of a roller coaster around here lately, and I thank you again for your kind thoughts and prayers for my family.  I didn't really get to show you much of our house at Christmas this year, but I do want to share with you the "winter/Christmas look" of our guest room.
