9-28-12 Friday (Mmmmm, Donuts)

Saturday, Jim and I went to lunch and ran some errands.  We went to lunch at Five Guys Burgers and Fries.  Is there anyone who hasn’t eaten there yet?  I mean other than my very fit and buff friend Norma?  I’m not sure why I feel compelled to talk about burgers right now.  I guess because I’m hungry at this particular moment.  Anyway, Five Guys is awesomely awesome. 

At around 2pm, Mom and Aunt Donna’s flight from sunny Southwest Florida (Fort Myers) arrived.  Jim and I met them, loaded the car and headed to an early dinner to The Rusty Rudder.  Mimosas!  and a great view of Lake Norman

On Sunday it was off to Chimney Rock.   Yeah, Jim and I was there recently with his grandmother.

Prior to arriving at Chimney Rock, we stopped off at an Ingles grocery store for subs and salads.  Here we are having a picnic in the park:

One night during the week we went to Krispy Kreme.  Our visitors had never been to an actual store that makes donuts:

I’ve been taking a lot of half days to spend time with my Mom and Aunt.  The leaves are changing – some faster than others but I think it’s going to be the perfect time to be here.  I haven’t taken any color changed trees mostly because I forget to.


  1. The closest Five Guys to my area is about 25 miles away, in a town that I never have any reason to be in, so it's just not on my radar. I've heard it's awesome though.
