July 2, Β Red River Campground

We stayed at this campground during our time of our son’s wedding. I found it had some interesting things to share! 

First if you love canoeing or Kayaking then you might want to put this place on your map. I was so bummed that we didn’t take our kayaks. I didn’t think we would have time,And the river would have been so fun to kayak. It had a wonderful current..

It isn’t a place for small children as there isn’t much for them to do.

The first interesting find was this little shed.


I thought it was a neat little shed so I walked over to see and was pleasantly surprised when I saw this …

 
The second point of interest…  


Yep .. a witch and her stories… oh it was so fun reading these boards.




If you wish to read more on the Bell witch go here ..Bell Witch Wikipedia. 

A few more photo of  the place…

  
  
I love this picture of my tired crew on the way home from Kentucky.


Have a great week,friends.πŸ™‚

But the difficulties were worthy it, Saturday turned out to be a perfect beautiful day!

This photo is what happens when there is one photo setting after another! πŸ˜‚ Russ also had a insect bite  on the leg that was driving him crazy.

June 7…… my favorite book as a child

I decided to lay all the sewing aside for a bit , although I will say I see light at the end of the tunnel. I just have things like buttons to put on, pants to hem up and zipper tabs to sew down. Then all wedding attire will be done.πŸ‘πŸ˜„

I love the book of Misty written by Marguerite Henry.  I did as a child and still do. It has lovely illustrations that help fuel imagation for young and old, also heartwarming pictures that tell a story all its own. Let’s take a peek at this old book that was printed in 1972 ,given to me as a Christmas gift .


Pictures to fuel the imagination..

   


Heartwarming illustrations…

  
 I grew up not far from Chintcoteague, visited there occasionally ( Chincoteague has the best fried oyster ever!!!) but loved going to Assateague to see the wild ponies,playing in the sand and enjoying the ocean.

My children have had this book read to them, now it’s time for some grand children to hear it!!

May 14 th Mother’s DayΒ 

Today is not May 14 th, but what I’m writing about happened on this day . It was a very wonderful day ,for I enjoyed both my mother in law and my mom. One is 13 hrs driving timing and the other 10 1/2 hrs . Slim chance that it will happen again for one is 80 ,though in good health, my mom 76 not so much in good health, but that isn’t the important thing today.

Mom made a set of pillowcases for my son’s wedding and a pillowcase for each of the girls here at home yet.


Russell’s set ….more detail..



And this is what the girls looked like


It is just lovely embroidery, right? And it is lovely ,only there’s more to it than just lovely embroidery. Mom is totally blind in one eye,and very limited sight on the other side. Often one walks with her to guide her when she goes walking. So to do this she wears a magnifying glass around her neck with a very bright light over her work. It is a beautiful sight to see this beautiful old lady in a chair stitching away!!

Bet you had to go back to relook at that stitching.πŸ˜‰

Now back to my stitching as Russell’s quilt top needs to be finished this week.

ps.. daughter LouAnn framed hers … say it was to pretty to use as a pillowcase.

April 23 rd…. a very special photo

Life this week has been very VERY busy ,as my daughter and her family were with us for almost a week. They are from Virginia , so we don’t get to enjoy having them around as often as the other married children. Lynn was here to help me fix my dress pattern that I want to use for Russell’s wedding. This photo is special for it is so far our only granddaughter,and she loves her PopPop . He is her hero!!πŸ˜„ 


PopPop had a little follower a lot this week, she even informed him ” PopPop, I follow you”,


Have a wonderful week, Deb

Oh yes ,the feature photo …. the two grandchildren kept me in flowers all week.😍

Oct 13 th, Elijah Clark State Park… part two

As I was walking around his home place, I wondered what he looked like,also what kind of man he really was. According to the encyclopedia,he had a very strong,driven personality. He was a poor,illiterate frontiersman who married Hannah Herrington. It seems from reading that he had a real fondness for fighting, one of the wars that he fought in was the Revolutionary war.

Here are pictures of  the old home place…


  
  
I love the stone chimney and the shutters…look how they dovetailed the logs !

  
Here were some signs that were interesting.. the museum is open to public during a set time,which I missed.




And that, my friends ,is a short insight of Elijah Clark. The park is a lovely place to visit!


Have a great day! Deb

Oct. 9th… Elijah Clark State Park.. part 1

Lovely weather has come to Ga. ..well that is if you don’t think about Hurricane Matthew that just blew though for a few days. We as a family decided once again to go camping before winter came . 

Elijah Clark State Park is not far for us to go,it is just north of us about 1 1/2 hrs drive. It is a beautiful place  with Lake Strom Thurmond flowing though it. 


We enjoyed watching the boat go up and down the lake,hubby and girls enjoyed getting in the lake,I enjoyed feeding the Canadian geese.

 Leona getting some sun on those legs.:)



How does one fry a egg over a fire ,when there’s no frying pan..


.. use a long handle ladle spoon with some bacon grease in. Works great!!

One morning Leona and l went for a long walk,there was nice little trails to go on.


We saw lots of squirrels,even a walking stick bug who was crossing the road.


Neat tree roots formations 


Just nature

  

Canadian geese were so beautiful swimming ,


Goose with an attitude..


A curious goose …






Look closely and you can see fall coming to Ga.

We also had a coon visit us during the night, the coon must of been Goldilocks for it was trying out our chairs! It also eat all the Carmel dip that we had along with apples that evening while sitting around the fire. We forgot to take it in.


Part two …next post… that will be on Mr Clark.
