As the Days go on


The weekend is here and it has been a beautiful day and I am so grateful for it. The river is running and kayakers and canoers are moving quite quickly along the river. I am making chicken noodle soup and I hope it will be ready before the party we are going to.

 

Every morning when I open my blinds, I am overcome with joy and a sense of how lucky I am to have moved here. Tomorrow we are going to Bat Cave, NC and to the Light Center which is a healing center. It is in Black Mountain. It will be good fun.

Views from my new home


I am now settled into my new home which is in Asheville, NC. We have an apartment on the third floor and I have wonderful views of the mountains and the French Broad River. I have done some research and found out that the river is older than the mountains. I find that very cool. Also the river flows south to north and is the only one in America to do so.

 

I hope you enjoy the pictures:
