What's happening at our house . . .


I love our little community of Meat Camp, NC.

From Wikipedia:

"Meat Camp is situated along the Old Buffalo Trail and was established before the Revolutionary War.  As the story goes, Meat Camp was the location where hunters stored their dressed animal carcasses in a cabin that served as a primitive packing house."

This is Elk Knob as seen from our bedroom window.

You can read this piece I wrote about Meat Camp for Jungle Red a few years back. -

We have a little country store, Plan B, for essential items when we don't want to drive all the way into town.

And here's the view from Plan B yesterday.

Fall in Meat Camp is pretty special.


Moving along . . .

I'm heading out of town next week.  Leaving Donald and Annabelle in Meat Camp while I spend a week in South Carolina in the beautiful Low Country where I'll be attending The Pat Conroy Literary Festival.

Which prompted me to get a much needed haircut, and some very subtle highlights and lowlights.

Ellie Miller did her usual terrific job.

Today I'm tossing a few things together, cluttering up our sunroom with things that  I'll be taking with me.

In the meantime, here's what the leaves around our house are looking like.


And here's what the cluttered sunroom is looking like.

It'll get worse before it gets better when I leave on my trip.

I will have some decisions to make about what goes into this hanging bag . . .

And bless Annabelle.

She is a little confused by it all . . .

Stay tuned - plenty more to come.

Life is good.
