A Day in Town

 Yesterday was a gorgeous day and I spent most of it in town running errands, shopping, and having a "Kaye Day."

Manicure, hair cut, and a cute new denim dress from TJMaxx.  

It was a good day, one that included an over-due visit with my friend Ellie Miller in her new salon, Muse.  THE most perfect spot for Ellie and her clients.  Welcoming, relaxed, intimate, professional.  

But, honestly?  I almost cried at how very ugly some of Highway 321 from Boone to Blowing Rock has become.

How many car washes and quick oil change places does one small town need?

Ugly.  Ugly.  Ugly.  

"Progress" has hit Boone big since we moved here in 1996.

I miss the look and feel of the small mountain town Boone was.

Which is why I'm perfectly content to spend most days at home in Meat Camp, which I love dearly.

Life is good in Meat Camp.

I don't blame you one bit. And, it's all over the place. We've had two new car washes go up within a couple blocks in the last 4 months. But, Meat Camp is still beautiful. And, I love the view from your porch of Annabelle and Donald. Enjoy your home, Kaye!
