Some work, some play, some time to think away

A photo to post, a Toast to Toast

An Afternoon to reminisce and say ‘Let’s Stay!’

A rainy day… finally

After weeks of 90 degrees or more, we finally have a respite of cooler temperatures and much needed rain in the mountains of Western North Carolina. As I awake on this Wednesday, I’m reminded that there is much to be grateful for and look forward to a day with some of my extended family.

Also, a reminder to those who are on twitter… check out the hashtag #CTWW (Change The World Wednesdays) .. it’s a small group of followers who have ideas about what we as individuals can do to improve the environment around us.

Enjoy your day! Ciao!

July 4th, 2012 Holiday

This day has been celebrated for over 75 years by my Lebanese relatives as ‘Family Reunion’ day in Birmingham, Alabama. This year is the first year we have NOT celebrated it together on this day..instead, they moved it to May!  Birmingham is hot on July 4th…but, those of us who have been attending for more than 20 years have grown accustomed to the heat, the smell of delicious ribs and chicken cooking in the pits and most of all Saf-Souf – a Lebanese salad made similarly to Tabouleh, but with very finely chopped lettuce, and of course the other sides like corn on the cob, baked beans, deviled eggs and chocolate brownies or cakes and pies for dessert. After the family meal is celebrated, we all walked over to the Catholic Church across the street to join in the various games, such as the Cake Walk, Wheel of Fortune, the AMAZING Treasure Hunt in the School’s gym, and the finale would be my Aunt Grace, singing Karaoke to Frank Sinatra’sMy Way‘! I have so many fond memories of this day and the way our family has grown and united and kept this tradition. It saddens me to know that the following generation has changed the date and the location. But, next year…I know my father, husband, and daughter will make efforts to attend this gathering of the Adamo/Shory clan and celebrate with as much love and sharing as in year’s past.

Wishing all of you a very Happy 4th of July!

Peach Roses from the market in Verona Italy

The longest day of the year…when the fireflies are out…and the roses are blooming and the air is filled with the smell of honeysuckle. Enjoy it and make it a wonderful day for you and your loved ones. Go for a walk, a hike, a bicycle ride (I did this morning)…it’s so nice out and remember to find one thing to be grateful for each day…it’s there for the us… like the air we breathe….just waiting to be noticed. Peace to all…. A

It is my hobby to take photographs and this one really captured my eye once I saw it on the big screen.  I hope you enjoy it as well. As for the job search, I’m getting plenty of work and am very grateful.  May your job search bring you wonderful results and work you enjoy. Ciao! Anita
