Friday Fun Day

What’s fun for one person may not be all that fun for another. Activities are subjective to the likes and dislikes of an individual, I suppose. What you enjoy doing doesn’t, necessarily, have to be perceived by everyone else as an exciting fan fare. Just have fun. Enjoy yourself. Even if you’re doing it alone, as long as you’re having fun, that’s what matters!

What are you doing on this Friday evening?

Are you with a group, with a friend, with a loved one or all alone?

Are you having fun?

Whimsical Wednesday

Somedays, it just doesn’t feel so whimsical

The rain pours down like an avalanche

The bills pile up, threatening to bust the dam

The kids get sick, losing time from your livelihood

The spouse awakens as if you’ve committed a wretched evil

Temptations reign and habits of old come creeping, seeking to find you

There must be an anchor down deep inside

There must be still waters no man can shake

There must be a hope which sustains through yesterday and points to tomorrow

When Hope lives within, the storms may rage; yet, the rock will stand.

Four65 Woodfire Bistro & Bar

Location: Highlands, NC

This place is very nice, albeit a bit pretentious, but you are in Highlands, and that’s just a bit pro quo in the restaurant business. It’s a pretty new bistro in town and on of the few open for lunch on Mondays; so, we decided to try it out. The menu is incredibly limited, and the wait staff is a bit slow, but the food is delicious.

We ordered the Caesar salad and Margherita pizza with pepperoni. Both were very, very good, and if we want pizza again while in Highlands, we will be back. If you’re into wine, beer and charcuterie, this will probably become your go to. They seem to have quite the selection.

As this isn’t quite our style, the rest of the menu was a bit too selective. A handful of salads and pizza choices, and what is on the menu is what you are allowed to order. NO SUBSTITUTES AND NO CHANGES is marked clearly on the menu, and it’s accurate. Missing the note on the pizza line, “(One item choice),” we asked for two toppings instead of one, and we were denied. It just is what it is.

Like I said, the food was really delicious; so, please, don’t be put off by my honest review. It’s worth going one time, and that must be a common thought, because it was quite packed when we went; although, it is a smaller restaurant. The grilled cheese selection with the root vegetable stew did look delicious, as well as, several other plate that went by.

I do hope they do well. They are located right beside the very popular Old Edward’s Inn that has Madison’s and the Wine Garden Cafe (don’t remember official name), which has been open for years, and Wolfgang’s and Restorante Paoletti’s is just across the street; so, the competition is tight. I just wish the chefs/owners would realize a bit more variety might allow for a bit larger clientele; but then, what do I know, I’m just a Georgia girl who loves traveling to Highlands to enjoy the day…many times, eating somewhere else before we arrive.

Friday Fun Day

Last Friday, we ended up with a free evening. The wind was right; the fall temperatures were perfect, and my husband decided to go sailing. I was working on a project, and I almost stayed home while he and our youngest left for the boat.

I’m so thankful I didn’t say no!

Sometimes, your “no” will cause you to miss out on the best moments and the most unforgettable memories.

Go on now. Go have a Friday Fun Day! 😉

My Hearts Weeps No More

You converse with me

But no one is standing there.

You laugh and tell me the stories

But no one is smiling.

You rewrite the history to fit your look

But no one hears the news.

You embrace my form and shed a tear

But no one sees your charades.

You reach once more for my hand

But my heart weeps no more.

Whimsical Wednesday

It’s amazing how one drive can purify a mind.

Look at the swirls of color passing by and see now with clarity.

Breathe deep the air that settles the thoughts of despair.

Let the wind surround your skin, calming the restless soul.

Just step out beyond the norm and find yourself again.

Tuesday’s Treats #186

Divine Coffee

Location: Johns Creek, GA

Very nice, modern day coffee shop with all the great feels. They have beverages, coffees, desserts and snacks to choose, WiFi, and both comfortable and cafe style seating. They have clean bathrooms and patio seating as well.

On this particular day, it was hot, and I wanted to try something new. In the “today’s specials,” they had a ‘refresher’ of blood orange, coconut and ginger. Oh. My. Word. This was so good, I had two of them! I also had a severing if tiramisu; so, I’m sure my sugar intake was tapped out, but everything was delicious. I’ve also had their coffee, and it is excellent as well.

Whenever I’m on this side of town, I’ll definitely drop by. Now, the only question will be, “Which one do I want today?”

They don’t have an actual website; so, I’m posting the google page for you here.

Friday Fun Day

It’s finally feeling like Fall around here!

How about you?

We built a campfire in our fire pit the other night, and it was amazing! I love to watch the fire “breathe” beneath the logs. It wasn’t even a huge fire, but the flames blue and sweltering hot.

It’s just another reminder of how amazing my God is. He creates something so beautiful and dangerous and comforting, even healing at times. His creation is always amazing me.

How about you?

What do you love about the Fall and this time of year?

Whimsical Wednesday

Sometimes, the day doesn’t feel so whimsical

And you wonder what to form beneath your pen

In that moment of indecision and doubt

Just turn to your old faithful friend, Winnie the Pooh

And He can always help you out 💗

… think I might need some tea and honey now, too…🍯
