VBS and dry weather

On Saturday evening my dear husband and I ended up with a rare evening without children. We had a nice drive up into the mountains and stopped at a BBQ place that we had heard lots about....Oinkers in Clayton, GA. It was great. DH actually said it was probably the best BBQ he had ever had. The sauce was a cross between the traditional GA BBQ sauce, which is tomato based and the vinegar BBQ sauce often found in the Carolinas and it was wonderful. It will definately get a repeat visit from us. We also took the scenic route home and cruised around Lake Burton and took in the beautiful sites. If you ever get the chance to spend any time in the Lake Burton area, definately do it. I am hoping for a dear, long lost, rich Uncle to leave me a huge inheritance so that I can have a "cabin" on Lake Burton. Hey, I can dream, can't I???

I also couldn't pass up this gorgeous rock/flower creation as we were riding around (click on it to see how gorgeous the flowers are up close!). It has been soooooooooo dry here I was amazed at how good these flowers look. I love this design and think I might need a rock pile of my own.

This week is VBS at our church. I have volunteered, but not for one of the special positions that require constant involvement with the children. I am not that good! As a child, I never attended VBS but my children always have and they love it. So, if you don't hear much from me it is because this is a busy week...not to mention it is the last week of my [horrid] Economics class!


  1. How nice of you to volunteer for VBS. My daughter goes every year and loves it! I'm so thankful for the kind ladies who make it happen.

  2. Beautiful rock pile. Guess I should think about doing something like that with all the rocks I dig up in my yard.

  3. Glad you had a little time away, even if just for a little while. I share your yearning for a little cabin - I would like mine in the Adirondack Mountains!

    Good luck with VBS AND the (horrid) class. I have school 2 nights a week for this month, but I'm on the other side of the desk. Trying to keep people awake on these almost-summer nights - the big difference, these courses are non-credit. makes it easier! Take care, my friend, and relax in betwee. BTW - Oinkers sounds REAL good to me too!

  4. Claudia, I would love an Adirondack Cabin but it is a bit of a drive for weekends! (((love ya, my Nawthern friend)))

  5. that is an awesome photo. Good luck with class. I am not even midway through my art history class this term. Oy vey, it gets tougher as you get older too doesn't it?

    hang in there, enjoy the summer and the time with your family!!


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
