Busy Week!

It’s Thursday evening. And Scott has this song┬áblasting. (Weakness.)

In other news, this week has been so busy! I think I’ve had something every night after work this week. Not that they are bad things – they are all things I wanted to do! Nonetheless, I am exhausted. Tuesday evening one of my friends and I went for a walk/run at the Biltmore! It was an absolutely gorgeous evening – the fall-like weather has been delightful. And last night after work my class had a family picnic! The kids have been excited about it since last week … and so have the teachers! The kids practiced and performed songs for their families and ran and played and there was so much happiness! It is so fun to see the kids outside of school and get to play with them on the playground! Of course it was nice to talk with their parents too and get to know our glorious community a little bit better. I love my job!!!

And on top of all that Scott had a cold! He’s feeling much better now though. Thank goodness! Tonight our agenda involved cleaning up the apartment. Call it belated spring cleaning (or early, depending on your view) but it really had everything to do with the facts that a.) we traveled a ton this summer and our things exploded everywhere and never made it back, and b.) we have so many people coming to visit in the next few months! It felt so great to get things back where they belong, find homes for things that didn’t have a place, and clean off some of what settled while we were running around crazy. Yay for a clean house!!! And now, without further ado, some pictures.

Our recycling trucks! I got a kick out of what it says on the side:

My friend and I went to the Wine Bar downtown on Wednesday evening and The Swayback Sisters were playing! They were terrific!!!

And this is just to show that sometimes one must get creative when trying to eat an uncooperative sandwich.

I hope you have a fabulous Friday! I know I will! My Dad and Dean are coming to visit this weekend!!!


Bele Chere

This weekend in Bele Chere here in Asheville. (Click here to learn more.) I have been working all weekend and tomorrow is no exception. The festival started on Friday at noon and it’s been going strong the whole time! Most of downtown is blocked off to traffic and there are booths set up everywhere and stages at various locations. Tons of artists and organizations from here, there, and everywhere, musicians, street theater, and SO MANY PEOPLE. I have a lot of thoughts from this weekend on my heart, but here’s a picture for you in the mean time. I’ll post more soon! As soon as this weekend is over. Then I’m leaving for another trip to Washington for my uncle’s wedding! What a summer!

Fridays After Five

During June and July the Biltmore has Fridays After Five where they have live music in Antler Hill Village! Tonight it was the Firecracker Jazz Band from Asheville. It was great! There weren’t as many people there as I was expecting, but that’s okay. It rained all day and cleared up just in time for the music. Next time we’ll bring a picnic dinner!

The Infamous Stringdusters

Friday, February 24, 2012: The Infamous Stringdusters played a set at Mast General Store this evening before they headed to open for Yonder Mountain Stringband at the Orange Peel. It was great! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many people at Mast before! We were behind them, but they still sounded really good! It was so much fun!
