A Day Late…But The Wait Was…

A Day Late…But The Wait Was…

Worth it? Hmmmmm? Depends on how you look at it. I felt STUCK in the house all day merely because nearly everything I needed to do couldn’t get done because most stores weren’t open. Or friends weren’t willing to leave their house because of this… Yup. Went to bed Friday night still waiting for the…read more »

Are You Ready?

Are You Ready?

Looks like Mother Nature’s coming back for a second try at dumping ice and snow on ENC! This pic was taken by a friend when they were traveling back to ENC from Charlotte. They actually braved that last blast and took their scheduled road trip. He said he stood in the middle of the road…read more »

Let Me Give You A…HAND?

Let Me Give You A…HAND?

I imagine all of us have run across that random shoe in the road and wondered, “How did that ONE single shoe end up abandoned here…living a desolate life of half a pair…wondering why they were left behind and their match was kept by their loving owner.” OK, maybe we all haven’t wondered that much,…read more »

Oh My Oh My…Oysters!

Oh My Oh My…Oysters!

Cheers to that person who decided to crack open what looked like a rock and slurp it down. More than likely, they slurped it down with a little blood from a cut on their hand…because oysters are SHARP! LOL! Because of whoever it was that did it first, we enjoy oysters galore! And as usual…at…read more »

The Magic Of Christmas Morning In My Trunk!

The Magic Of Christmas Morning In My Trunk!

Like every parent, one of my favorite days of the entire year was Christmas Morning. After the madness of Black Friday shopping for the best deals, hiding gifts in places I couldn’t remember hiding them, baking cookies with my son for Santa on Christmas Eve…because they had to be the freshest they could be on…read more »

Sometimes You Just Have To Look Up!

Sometimes You Just Have To Look Up!

My Thanksgiving Weekend was spent with my immediate family in Cape Charles, VA. I’m going to be honest. I was nervous! All of us together in ONE house! With NO escape! But, as it turned out, there really wasn’t much to worry about. There WERE escapes! LOL! You thought I was going to say it…read more »

“Giving” For Thanksgiving

“Giving” For Thanksgiving

We asked for your help and WOW…you came through! V103.3, AGT Carriers, Inc. and TPI Market in New Bern had 25 Thanksgiving Boxes to donate to a non-profit in ENC and we asked you to tell us where to deliver them. The votes rolled in and Grifton Mission Ministries came out on top…followed closely by…read more »

A Big Fat Turkey & A Side Of Drama

A Big Fat Turkey & A Side Of Drama

Thanksgiving is next week. Wow…what happened to 2021? But…that wasn’t really my thought as I started writing this. May be a better topic than my original, though. The original is about Thanksgiving and the one thing EVERY…SINGLE…PERSON…I…KNOW…IS…DREADING! A family gathering! LOL! I will be traveling to a lovely home in Virginia to gather with my…read more »

The Thrill Of The Thrift Shop Hunt!

The Thrill Of The Thrift Shop Hunt!

I got my addiction to thrift shopping honest. My Grandmother loved to hit flea markets, thrift shops, even the junk man’s house! Yes, the “Junk Man”. He ran the local dump and salvaged anything you an imagine from being buried under mounds of left-overs, empty beer bottles and various other icky things! My Mother caught…read more »

It’s Peak Season for Spaghetti Squash!

It’s Peak Season for Spaghetti Squash!

I LOVE Spaghetti Squash! It’s delicous…really…it is! I eat it as a side dish…so much healthier than a pasta side dish. And, with our commitment to a healthier menu focused on low carbs and sugar, it’s perfect! One cup of spaghetti squash has 40 calories, 10 grams of carbohydrates, and 4 grams of sugar. Spaghetti squash…read more »
