        • Lol!  

          Melissa I am very very very slow when it comes to painting. I hate it but I hate the colors more. I should hire a painter but that seems like a frivolous thing when I am capable.  

          I blogged somewhere about it but have decided on a light beige/taupe. Changing the light fixture will be next!

        • Happy Fun Friday Vikki & Melissa! ...Vikki, what a difference a little paint color makes, we recently painted our kitchen from a “screaming mustard yellow” to a more “mellow cappuccino“, and it feels like a whole new room.  So know whatcha mean when you don’t like a color. have fun painting.  

          This weekend I’m working on getting our house ready to receive long-term visitors, my daughter & grandbabies are coming from Germany hopefully to stay with us for the year while my son-in-law is away (he’s being deployed to Afghanistan). Lots to do!

        • Good afternoon!! I’m at work but ready to go home!
          It’s suppose to be 62 degrees this weekend.  Members are already telling me it has warmed up outside!! Can you say YESSSSSS?  

          So with that said...my plans are to do some walking on our awesome “Greenway” (a walking/running trail that goes throughout our city).  

          Here is a little about the Greenway...

          The Greeneway Trail

          The outdoor setting provides a safe and fun environment for people of all ages.
          Whether you are a jogger, a biker, or a nature enthusiast, the North Augusta Greeneway provides opportunities for all the pleasures of outdoor recreation. As you follow the Greeneway, the trail takes you through some of the City's most beautiful natural settings, neighborhoods, and riverfront views of the Savannah River. The Greeneway is a perfect place to spend time with friends and family.

          Along the trail, pedestrians can enjoy learning about the history of the area that is now the Greeneway. Interpretive signs located along the seven mile stretch provide an insight to the rich history of the land. The trail offers a trip back in time as you find yourself standing in the spot of a major Native American settlement or in North Augusta's old commercial district. Downloadable audio podcasts can teach you about the history of the area as you follow along the trail.

          Past and Present

          The Greeneway offers more than seven miles of paved trail, ideal for a long bike ride or just an afternoon outing.
          Today's North Augusta Greeneway was yesterday's commercial artery. At the founding of North Augusta in 1906, the industrial area lay in the southeast section of the Greeneway. Many railroad tracks ran along the lower terraces of the Savannah River.

          In the late 1800s and early 1900s, railroads were the main way to move products from the countryside of Aiken and Edgefield Counties to their shipping points on the Savannah River. Although North Augusta was originally founded as a suburb of Augusta, and gained fame as a resort community, North Augusta was well known as both a producer and a consumer of many household products; especially bricks, lumber, and cotton products. The rail lines connected the local manufacturers with the outside world.

          Revitalization
          Since North Augusta's industrial area declined in the 1930s, the railway was abandoned, and the bottomlands became neglected and overgrown. Until recently, the old clay pits and remains of the brick factories could be seen scattered throughout the woods. The City of North Augusta purchased the land under former Mayor Thomas W. Greene.

          A plan for revitalization was begun and the Greeneway was established in 1995. The South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism, the South Carolina Department of Transportation, and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control provided much of the funding for the project. The city of North Augusta provided the labor, construction materials, and equipment. The old rail beds were used to create 7 miles of multi-use paths. Today the citizens of North Augusta can enjoy this scenic amenity and experience a link with their city's past.
          *****************************************************

          So this weekend...I’m walking on the Greenway.....helping out with two Stella & Dot Trunk Shows which are so much fun!! Then church on Sunday and Journey Team on Sunday evening! It’s a full weekend but it will be a good one.

        • Good afternoon ladies.

          No specific plans for the weekend yet.  Son has a basketball game tomorrow but he hasn’t told me what time, so I’m not sure if I’m going to that or not.  It’s an away game, but only about 50 miles away so I might go.  

          At the moment I’ve got a headache and achy joints so I’m really hoping I’m not coming down with something.  I’ve been so healthy all winter.
