Ugly Day at Driftwood Beach

There is a place I had wanted to visit since I first found out about it. It is a beach located on the north end of Jekyll Island. I had seen a lot of incredible images of Driftwood Beach from …

A Deer Visits My Backyard

Over the past several days we have had a few deer visit our yard and the trees across the creek. They come here for the abundance of food available, both outside our yard and inside. Here is a short (under …

A Likeable Sauvignon Blanc

I’m not usually a fan of Sauvignon Blanc, but this Etnico Sauvignon Blanc from Scout & Cellar is an exception. It was great with the risotto we had for dinner, and notes of green apple on the nose with grapefruit …

Sitting with a Cat

A few months ago my wife and I took a day trip to the north Georgia mountains. Knowing it was a bit early in the season we still hoped to see some fall color. It was a dark, overcast, rainy …

Christmas 2020: Still About Jesus

Christmas 2020 will be celebrated differently than we have normally celebrated in the past. With all the “restrictions,” whether forced or self-imposed, it may feel like The Grinch has been successful at stopping Christmas, but just like in the Dr. …

Happy Thanksgiving

I’m late, and left wondering if anyone will actually see this post. It’s the day before Thanksgiving after all, and who is going to be paying any attention to blog post, the Internet, or anything online, except the Butterball Turkey …

A Day at Hydrangea Farm Market

A new shop, new to me anyway, opened in Haralson, Georgia recently. It is called Hydrangea Farm Market. They had their soft opening in September, but Marcie only recently found their page on Facebook. Haralson is only a 30 minute …
