LIFE'S BETTER IN THE MOUNTAINS

Fridays Are Golden

 
 
 
Can you believe it?  We're at the last weekend in May?  And as we celebrate Memorial Day, we also unofficially welcome summer.

 
We have had stormy weather and lots more rain this week.  No surprise that parts of Transylvania Country are considered rain forests.  And as we have these minor weather patterns our thoughts still go out to those in devastated Oklahoma.
 
 
Surprisingly enough, this time Ellie has most of the bed.
But Lucy still maintains the upper paw.

 
 
 
Such a sweet face...

 
 
 
And Ellie deep in thought...

 
 
 
I told you I couldn't stop taking pictures of the Biltmore Gardens


As we approach this Memorial Day, let us pause and remember those who have helped make our country great by their sacrifices.

Trappist monk, Thomas Merton provides this week's quote:

"The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another."



HAVE A SAFE AND WONDERFUL MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!

I think I blinked May away. Those sweet faces could never harbor an evil thought.
Have a wonderful week end.

I like the quote, and the wisteria, and of course the Golden Girls are always a lovely sight.

We got some rain here too but these last two days have been perfect. I hope it was the same for you and your sweet critters.

Good girls! And Merton is so correct.

Hi there, Glad you are just getting rain; hope you have a wonderful weekend. I also give thanks for those that served and came home safe...without the sacrifice of many, we wouldn't have the freedoms we have.
Hugs, Noreen

I didn't know that parts of Transylvania County are considered rain forests. That is very cool (and wet!). Hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

Such sweet faces, both of them. And the Biltmore Gardens never cease to amaze me. Beautiful. I hope that you get some dry and sunny skies this weekend.

Merton is so...Buddhist.

Your girls are darling, as always.

Hope you are enjoying the weekend with your husband and the girls!
