The Clock Shop

Last week when we traveled to the mountains of western North Carolina and the Blue Waters Mountain Lodge, we stopped for dinner in the mountain town of Hendersonville, as we often do.  I wrote about Hendersonville a few years ago; you can read that post Here.  There's a clock shop there that always catches my eye, but I hadn't gotten around to taking pictures of it until this year.  They're always closed when we arrive in town, but I love looking in the windows.

It was closed when we arrived this year too, but we did finally manage to take some pictures.  It's hard to get good pictures looking through a plate-glass window from outside, so please excuse the quality of some of the pics.

A Little Mountain Therapy

Hi everyone!  I want to thank you all so much for your kind visits and thoughts for my family.  My father is still in the hospital; he's currently undergoing physical therapy.  I just spoke with my mom, and she said he's doing well.  It is a very slow process, though, for him to recover his strength and stamina.  By the time he's able to go home, he will have been in the hospital for about a month.

Lake Santeetlah

This is the view from where I sat yesterday morning.  Now you can see how the Great Smoky Mountains got their name.  


When I was very young, our family traveled to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, and I asked my parents if the mountains were named after Smokey the Bear.  Does anyone besides me remember Smokey the Bear?  Anyway, my parents thought that was a hoot, and we still laugh about it to this day.

A Fourth of July Table

I don't know about you all, but our town seems to have emptied out.  It seems that everyone is traveling somewhere for the Fourth of July week -- everyone, that is, but us.  :)  My husband says there has been very little traffic to and from work every day, so no complaints there.  Those who have gone to the North Carolina coast may have their trip spoiled by Tropical Storm Arthur, but I hope not.  That happened to us one year, and it was no fun.

We're planning on staying right here for the week, but my husband has taken an extra day's vacation in order to have a four-day weekend.  Woo-hoo!  We'll be going to my in-laws' house for the Fourth, but I set a patriotic tablescape in my "new" kitchen just for fun.
