CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace
I’ve been busy creating gourd ornaments and Christmas wreaths for the community Arts & Crafts Fair. Still, a homeowner has to keep up with maintenance, and lately, for me, this has necessitated daily leaf blowing off my driveway. Hopefully, I can mow the patch of lawn in my front yard.
My 7-year-old grandson is overlapping soccer and Wiffleball now in Pisgah Forest and I happily take him to his practices and attend his Saturday soccer games. It fills many hours of my time but I enjoy every minute. We squeeze in a day or two at the dog park too.
When a few gal pals offered to help empty the storage building at the end of my driveway I stopped all else. Five of us worked nearly 5 hours without a break and got nearly halfway through! So many items I hadn’t seen in 5 years; it was a treasure trove of memories. We filled a large pickup truck for me to take to the landfill and, the following day, donations went to a few worthy donation sites in Brevard. We’re not finished but as one gal stated “We’ll help you get there”. After the Arts & Crafts Fair, perhaps not until after the hustle & bustle of the upcoming holiday events, but we’ll get it done this winter. What great friends!
Fall is in the air and after weeks of rain, we are experiencing cooler weather now. Soon some of our summer-only residents will travel to warmer climates for the winter. We’ll miss you!
The new dog park, located behind the Pisgah Forest elementary school, was closed during the rains but is back open now. What a treat for the dogs and their owners!
LIVE AFTER FIVE
There are only two more Saturday evenings of musical entertainment is scheduled at Creekside Market. Such an enjoyable gathering of neighbors and visitors in a large outdoor setting! Each week we were treated to a different music venue, and everyone was amazing. Thank you, Wendy and crew.
This past Saturday evening hinted at the reason the outdoor entertainment would soon come to an end (until next spring); it was cold and getting dark earlier. If the weather cooperates I encourage our Cedar Mountain residents to come out and enjoy these next two weeks at Creekside Market. The music starts at six. Everyone is welcome.
AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda “Packer” Young
Well, things are starting to simmer down around the house. My honey has finally finished moving in. Saturday was a horror though. He and I and his brother and sister-in-law John and Lenore Packer moved everything that was left in the house to a local storage facility. It involved dismantling heavy shop equipment and we couldn’t have done it without John and Lenore. Now, all we need is a bigger workshop.
