A Day Out

I hardly ever get out of Seagrove. Once a week or so I head to nearby Asheboro for groceries or Lowe's, but that doesn't really count as "getting out". Yesterday I drove a friend to a doctors appointment in Greensboro. Greensboro is the big city, when you live in Seagrove! When his appointment was over, he was feeling well enough for lunch. We went to an Egyptian restaurant on W. Wendover Ave., "Chef Samir". It's a tiny place in a strip mall, and when you walk in it's like stepping into another world. I knew from the scent of spices in the air, that the food was going to be wonderful. I had the chicken shawarma on pita bread, and it was excellent. I plan to go back soon so that Jeff can experience the flavors.

While I was out and about in the big city, Jeff was at home framing the last wall that needs to be replaced in the new gallery. The sun was finally shining and it was a good day for working outside. Another milestone we reached was setting up our photo shoot area in the office. I hadn't taken any new photos in months and my Etsy shop was hurting for it. It's great to have a room to take photos that isn't in the middle of our living space. Let's face it, it isn't a pretty set up. The room still has a lot of boxes piled up, once everything is settled I'll get some photos of the set up.

After an evening of photographing, I have been adding new items to the Etsy shop. Today's offering is the "BACON" piggy bank. Just in time for the World Health Organization's announcement that processed meats are carcinogens. This little guy seems pretty harmless to me. 
Everything in moderation.


  1. Egyptian food, never had it, sounds wonderful and now I am hungry, ha.

  2. Not everybody has a pig named bacon. I'm so glad you enjoyed your day away.

  3. that sandwich sure as hell DOES look good!

    1. They had lots of vegan dishes that sounded delicious too.

  4. Very cute pigs!! Bacon one of the major food groups too! And yes the sandwich looks fantastic, there would be no talking, too busy eating! What a great day!


Don't be shy, talk to me... I won't know your out there if you don't!
