Fainting Goats and Flowers at Fearrington

Fainting Goats and Flowers at Fearrington If you ask me what to do in North Carolina, I’ll tell you that there’s always another garden to visit! Between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro there is a village that was created in the early 1970s by RB and Jenny Fitch. Fearrington Village was built on the 1500 acre site of an historic farm. The Fitch family converted the home into the Fearrington House Inn & Restaurant. The barn and outbuildings were converted into shops, conference and wedding facilities and smaller restaurants. A community of homes was built around the village, but you...

ELPs Politics of Food Conference, in Raleigh NC

ELPs Politics of Food Conference, in Raleigh NC Posted by tes thraves under big picture, neighboring efforts, regionalizing, super local September 21st-24th I spent in Raleigh at the ELP’s national conference on the Politics of Food.  There were numerous good workshops, but mostly the people I met, from literally near and far, will impact my life–that’s “it” right? Close to home: Eva Clayton opened as keynote, and hearing her was an inspiration as always.  Chris Rumley and Rob Jones–with Good Work and Bountiful Backyards–will be partners on some future project I’m certain, and Chris has already introduced me to Margie Ellison, who...

Eva & Dan

September 14, 2008 Eva & Dan I had the pleasure of photographing Eva and Dan this past Saturday at Fearrington Village here in Pittsboro, NC with Steve Exum. The scenery at Fearrington is lovely which complemented this couple’s disposition. I have been photographing weddings all summer, but I’ve only put a few up here. I’ll have to post a conglomeration of my favorite photos as a recap later on this blog so you can all see what has been keeping me so busy!

Chatham County GOP Opening Ceremonies

Chatham County GOP Opening Ceremonies Old Glory flying free! Our Chatham County GOP Logo & Sign Well, it’s been a long, eventful day thusfar. We opened up our HQ’s around 10 a.m this morning and it was pretty successful. I’ve posted a few pictures of the day and will have tons more information in the upcoming weeks during the election. Everyone stopped by wanting their McCain/PALIN signs. She has affected the ticket tremendously and really sparked a fire with conservatives. Everyone is thrilled about her. If you happen to live in Pittsboro, stop by and see us. We sure...

Pam Cash-Roper of Pittsboro, NC, a Republican, Spoke at the Democratic Convention and Explained Why She’s Voting for Obama

September 5, 2008

In prime time, five "regular" Americans spoke at the Democratic Convention. By far the best of the five, in my humble opinion, was Pamela Cash-Roper, a retired nurse from Chatham County, Pittsboro, NC. (And I'm not just saying that because I'm a resident of Chatham County.)The N&O did a nice story. Below, courtesy of the Chatham Journal, she talks about the response in Chatham County to her high national profile: More Republicans for Obama.

Our First Guests

Our First Guests August 19th, 2008 by Elizabeth Last week, Steven and I had the marking of our first guests coming to visit. We were delighted to have Janet, Joe & Robert in our little home for a few days. This was also an extra special trip for Janet & Joe because it meant returning to their roots after 30 years. Joe did his pediatric residency at Duke, Janet became realtor certified in Durham and Dan spent his first years whileSteven was in utero here. Sadly, Steven had to work the days they were here so I did my darndest...

Yesterday was tricky

Saturday, June 28, 2008 Yesterday was tricky Trying to figure out what to do when people or places were not dictating my next move. I did get my wash done, went for a short walk, dropped off a birthday card for my niece and was happy to do my Friday routine of NewsHour, Washington Week, NOW and Bill Moyer’s Journal. It helps me set my information needs for the week ahead. My challenge for the week ahead is not to over think the week ahead – getting back into the work mode without making work my life focus. Going...

A winter story about the coastal climate

A winter story about the coastal climate This was written on February 12, 2008.  It is a good story on how climate varies on the east coast. ———————————————– Don’t get me wrong, I love Roanoke.  The sun rising over the mountains is pretty hard to beat even when it is so bright that it is almost impossible to photograph. Still Roanoke’s recent weather has not exactly been kind to those of us who love warmth. It also seems that the cold air gave Roanoke a wedgie.  At least a wedge of cold air running along the foot of the...

Summer flora and fauna

summer flora and fauna I love how lush North Carolina gets in the summer, and here are some growing things that have caused me to stop and take a picture. First, I took a wrong turn into a road behind a shopping center near my house, and found this field. At the time it was filled with little yellow flowers, but by the time I came back with my camera, they had been washed away by a summer storm. Next, as I was driving to visit some friends in Pittsboro, I saw a pond full of water lilies/lotuses. I...

How I know I am getting old

March 17, 2008

Yesterday I had the BEST day. My friend Mike picked me up at 10:30 and we drove out to this little town called Pittsboro and had brunch at the General Store. The food was INCREDIBLE. Grtis are served with everything and the atmosphere was much like a southern Deetjens. A crazy jumble of art and mismatched everything and little tucked away tables and an absent minded waitstaff. I loved it. We wandered around town, but most of the shops don’t open until after noon (Sunday is the Lord’s day) so we decided to drive to Sanford and explore there....
