Fun holiday weekend

We've had such a fun weekend! We went to a concert on Saturday night in Flat Rock, NC (near Hendersonville) to hear Angela Easterling. Here are Mike and I with Angela's sister, Joy, who makes fabulous hemp jewelry [see her work here].

Here is Angela, below, singing on the outdoor stage, behind Hand in Hand Gallery. You can read more about her on her website and listen to her music on myspace. Both her CDs are GREAT.



Today we went to Main Street in Hendersonville to see the Apple Festival which is held every year over the Labor Day weekend. We joined hundreds of people for the good ol' fashioned parade, complete with fire trucks and police cars with sirens, Mustangs & VWs & antique cars with ooga ooga horns, old time tractors, local high school marching bands with flag corps and cheerleaders, dance schools, Scouts, veterans and Civil War re-enactors, Democrats, Republicans, floats with apple growers, local celebrities and businesses, and more. Really fun!

Here are a few photos from our local newspaper. To see more, visit their website.

How colorful and lovely! I'm looking forward to checking out your music link. I'm always up for discovering an artist new to me. :) Thanks!

Okay, I've clicked on and listened to three songs and I can already tell I'm in love. And Bo will also love this. She writes music (won an award in a short-film contest - she wrote and performed the soundtrack music) and plays the piano and guitar. She has great respect for artists' who write their own lyrics. Can't wait to share her with Bo. Oh, thank you. :)
