This And That On Pinehurst Place – North Campus

Here’s a bit of this and that from OPP’s “north campus”, a tiny apartment we keep in Oxford also known affectionately as “The Shack”…

we have been coming here for long enough now that it is home away from home…

everyone is happy to pull into the drive and see the flag flying…

Daughter had turned in her last assignment for winter-session and requested some “mommy” time so I was happy to oblige!  We had a delightful salad lunch on the square Saturday and then headed out for some much needed manicures.  I so enjoyed the company of a few of her friends for a delicious sushi dinner…

a fairly new spot and my second visit was just as good as the first…

Back at “The Shack” I notice a little red book resting on a footstool, hmmm, looks like a Scout Guide to me, wonder where that came from.  A week or so ago I loaned the little apartment to some friends visiting Oxford from New Orleans and I guessed that they must have left this for me.  I knew that my suspicions were correct as I quickly skimmed through and found them…

Holly Barnett and her mom – aren’t they adorable!!!!  They have reopened the family gallery that had been shuttered for a few years and I promise you it is worth a trip!  So happy for them!

An early Sunday morning walk through “the most beautiful campus” is a perfect start to this crisp winter morning…

the flower girls pose in front of the Lyceum, they love this walk…

attended services at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church…

My first visit here was some 25 years ago on a Christmas Eve.  Mr. Doctor, Grandaddy, number 1 son and I drove up for the midnight mass.  Upon entering the nave, number 1 was presented with a piece of the creche for transporting to the manger during the procession.  Well,  the creche at St. Peter’s is ceramic…yes, you guessed it a little mishap and a missing ear could have led to a breakdown.  Then rector, now Bishop, got to his knees to assure our little one that this was perfectly alright and a common occurrence – as he pointed out all the re-attached parts!

Sweet memory…

I hope that your weekend was half as pleasant as mine!
