furniture, mountains, and shooting stars

This week in North Carolina is all about doing the final tweaks to our new furniture designs at Metro Home Furnishings. We're going over every inch of the new modular concept, and we'll be applying some great new fabrics that I've totally fallen in love with. I may even be proud enough to post some photos soon.

While I'm here, Robert Thomas the Sales Manager for Metro, is graciously hosting me at his mountain top cabin home in Fancy Gap, Virginia. It's just over the state line from Mount Airy, NC, and it's a magnificent place! His property borders the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The luckiest part is the meteor shower. Last night I woke at 3AM to see it, but it had become cloudy. I was so bummed I was missing it. But tonight I went outside and the sky was completely clear! Pitch black! The stars are so vivid up here at 3,000 feet with no light polution. You can see dense clusters of stars. It's totally awesome! And I've seen 4 shooting stars so far tonight :-)

I wish I had a really good camera with me, but here's some decent photos I took with my sony phone. Oh! Did I mention there's a horse out back too?!

I had to stop and photograph this old house on the way down the mountain this morning. It just makes my imagination wander to the history it must have sheltered over the many years. I really love this photo.

And finally, tonight's dinner was pork tenderloin in the oven with peaches, ginger, garlic, and other spices, with baby red potatoes and a Caesar salad. It was SO good!
