A Week Not to be Forgotten

Outdoor living has been severely curtailed the past few days here in South Carolina, as well in most of the states on the east coast of the United States. Having gone through a disaster which has been described by meteorologists as a 1000-year storm, although the sun is shining, few of us are thinking about relaxing [Continue Reading]

In my mind’s eye, I picture the first Thanksgiving being held outside with native Americans and recent English immigrants (dressed like Pilgrims) milling around outside on a beautiful, sunny day, with autumn leaves blazing in all their glorious color in the bright sunshine. But, let’s think a moment. Although an exact date for the first [Continue Reading]

Outdoor Weddings

South Carolina is full of nuts. Pecans, that is. The south is known for delicious pecans and everything that one can think of making with them:  pies, pralines, caramel and pecan topping, ice cream, or simply as a snack all by themselves. The pecan tree is a species of hickory and the word is from [Continue Reading]

Spooktacular Holiday Decor

It’s hard to keep up with the holidays and their requisite decorations this time of year. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas follow one another so closely that my basement is like Grand Central Station with the increased activity down there. Boxes out. Boxes in. More boxes out. Up and down and down and up the stairs. [Continue Reading]

With less than one week left until Halloween, and just one weekend before the big day, why not find something befitting the holiday to do this weekend? Pumpkin patches, corn mazes, hayrides, haunted houses, and costume parties are everywhere and they are all great fun but how about taking a ghost tour? If you live [Continue Reading]
