I still love the old cotton mill in Toccoa, but I'm afraid its fate is sealed. Who wants an old mill in this area. In Atlanta, it would be developed into cool condos with thriving places to eat nearby. Here, it sits on a hill alone and abandoned except for occasionally being used for a [...]
Chipley loves lambs. He whines and begs them to come closer. He also loves brown cows, but I can't say the same about black cows. I think it is an "eye thing"! He can't see the eyes of a black cow clearly so he does his "ruuuufff" thing that means I'm about to go into a [...]
Got everything unloaded last night and settled in the cottage and realized that the sky in Toccoa was going to put on a light show for me. The sunset was absolutely beautiful. Everything was in full bloom. Dusty had trimmed the lawn and all the bushes. And "Evelyn" the Wisteria vine was blooming again. I [...]
It's time to wake up for one of Chipley's cows! This little guy was so chilled out. I couldn't resist taking his photo. And these guys were sleepy, sleepy, sleepy—in a field full of grass. No one was even concerned that I had a camera and was taking their photo.
We unloaded more boxes at the Toccoa Cottage (that is what my friends are calling it and the name seems to be sticking) this past weekend. Suddenly I noticed something moving in one that was filled to overflowing with packing paper. It was PJ the cat, who had been missing for some time. He had [...]
The sun came out on Easter Sunday morning just like it was supposed to do! And all the flowers in the fields seemed to shout Alleluia to the risen Lord! Isaiah 55:12 does say, "You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before [...]
I can be in Atlanta on Friday with all the "horn blowing" crazies and wake up on Saturday morning under a Toccoa sky. That's now and who knows how long it will last. But the one thing I do know is that I love breakfast at BJ's in Toccoa. In fact, I diet all week [...]
I wanted to add a little color to the grey winter (British spelling) we are having. This photo is part of a larger stained glass window in Toccoa. . . . Oh, come spring! We need your colors in our lives!
