This evening is National Night Out!

Standard

Looking for something fun to do this evening?  National Night out will be in full swing from 5-9:30 this evening at the Riverwalk Park.  Fireworks, live music, food, 200+ vendors, Miss North Carolina, face painting, a bike give away (must be present to win) and more.    We’re sponsors, so, please stop by and enjoy an evening on us!

 

I’d write more about this fun event as well as would love to give you regular bloggity blog blog visitors something interesting to read since I have been neglecting this forum as of late. . .however, even with the sassy reading glasses, I have an eyelid twitch and the fumes from highlighters (alright, they are fume free but work with me here) have my head swimming. . . so, more later, I promise!  Plotting fantastical new adventures and projects to tackle in the next few months, and good stories always seem to happen when you kick off a new chapter in life.  🙂 TTFN.

Can’t beat a front porch and a symphony performance!

Standard

The North Carolina Symphony performance last night was wonderful.  Gathered with a group of friends, we camped out on a front porch, enjoyed the tunes and catching up.  Gardenia scented air, rocking chairs, moss draped trees, a glass of wine and world class performers. . .a tough night to beat!

The next concert in the area will be the Holiday Pops performance.  Sunday, November 27 at three pm at Northside High School’s auditorium.  Visit http://www.ncsymphony.org for more info, other exciting events as well as ticketing.

Memorial Weekend

Standard

As usual, I’m working on a holiday weekend, but, also as usual, for a great reason.  Helping military families enjoying a 96 (96 hours off) away from work find a place to call home.  Please remember the reason for the holiday weekend.  Check out a few great links.  I’m off to dodge rain drops and lock boxes that bite as I show homes today.  Enjoy your weekend!
