When it comes to other people that we don't know well, perhaps "curious" is the better word for what they do or don't do, rather than attaching any negatives to their actions.

That is an insightful observation.

That's insightful. I'm finally coming to realize how much there is that I don't know about people--people who I think I know and people I have known all my life. We only know what they choose to show us or what other people may tell us. (You learn a lot studying family history too. I have the utmost respect and even awe for some people who I only remember from childhood now that I have learned what they had endured.)

It's easy to be critical; it's a knee jerk reaction for a lot of us, myself included. But if I step back and wonder a little bit about what made them that way, what happened to them, I might feel different.

Totally beautiful NC weekend. Outstanding weather at beach. Son and family heading back, wife and I cleaning and crashing. Me more of the crashing. Weather had been so off and on this summer but wow what a streak of great days.

Finally dragged myself up to the mountain house Sat night; got in about 10 pm, so the weather was cool and the stars were out. Sat on the deck and just enjoyed the sounds of the evening.

Hubby and son are preparing ribs as I type! This is their thing so I am staying out of the way (and catching up on the piles of laundry that greeted me. Where is a clean towel in this house???? lol)

The birds are so chatty today! Haven't heard them this noisy in a while. And the temps are higher than usual for this elevation, so there are cicadas occasionally in the background.

Pefect day for a Bloody Mary, which I am heading upstairs to fix, as soon as I hit the "post" button, lol.

Have a wonderful NC day, TUBORG.

And I hope all of you - wherever you are located throughout this great country of ours - have a laid back, relaxing Labor Day.

Cheers!

mmmmmmm bloody marys, hoist one for me, ani!

Oh, to be at the beach. Enjoy, Tuborg!

I hope everyone is having a lovely day. We finally have some summer weather here, warm and a tad humid.

Last year we had weeks and weeks of hot and muggy weather, it was like south Florida. This year has been incredibly cool, the coolest summer I can remember.

Second bloody mary in your honor, CCc!

Wish I could do a scratch 'n sniff . . .

If Iced Tea is the Liqueur of the South, then Applewood Smoke must be the Perfume. Oh, that scintillating odor wafting through the air . . . it's a good day here at Chez Anifani, lol.
