PTA this month was a field trip organized by Cathy Neiman. She is so organized and always plans the most fun outings. We started at 12 Bones restaurant, known for barbeque and smoked food...all was delicious. We were also celebrating a big birthday for Barbara seated at the head of the table.
Gen and all of us were happy campers that day...Thanks Cathy for organizing such a fun day.

I've been dyeing lots of scarves with the new method I learned of ice dyeing/microwave style. It only does one at a time (you can do more but I like the variety) and only takes 5 minutes so I can pick a different combination each time. I've accumulated a lot of dyes over the years and have so many choices. I usually use 3 dyes per scarf and take into consideration the blending of 2 colors which can and does happen. For example....I never use complimentary colors together to avoid getting a brown.
I've hung them on my design wall to get a count and also to see the colors I have and where I need to fill in. With the holiday season upon us, I'm hoping to sell them at Woolworth..they make wonderful Christmas presents...so fingers crossed.
While in Germany, recently...walking down the streets and voila!...A Woolworth and I do believe it was like the original Woolworth. Woolworth used to be a "5 & 10" as we knew them as kids...a little bit of everything and very inexpensive. We had to walk through this one and it was the same format....very fun to see.
Have a wonderful day...til next time.

My hubby and I like to bike ride...nothing challenging...just fun. We have annual passes to the Biltmore Estate where they have some nice biking trails - nice and flat and run along the French Broad River.
You can see the estate behind me (upper left)...also see some other beautiful sights along the way.The day wouldn't be complete without having lunch so we ate at Cedrics which is part of the estate. The Vanderbilts had a dog named Cedric and named a restaurant after him...along with a bronze statue....must be nice..Everything is all decorated and music playing for Christmas...Hope we can slip Thanksgiving in there somewhere along the way. A lovely, somewhat healthy day (except for the Reuban sandwiches)!

This time of years means lots of outings for my hubby and I......We love the fall, the color and the weather. Recently we took a ride to Dillsboro which is a quaint little town in NC with little shops and home to the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. It was a beautiful day and we had such fun walking around, looking for Santa Claus ornaments and enjoying the hustle bustle of people. The train makes a stop in Dillsboro for 1 1/2 hours where passengers can shop and shop they do.
And here is the prize for the day....icicles which formed over weeds making them look like long spikey pieces of glass. We were so high up, much colder and this was our reward.
