Elizabeth Beers, owner of Tour With Elizabeth will share some of her favorite spooky stories during the Halloween and "Trick-OR-Treating" season!
Downtown Newnan and Oak Hill Cemetery are few of her favorite haunts-but let's get real-what would we do if a ghost snuck up behind us, tapped us on the shoulder or just appeared suddenly as Elizabeth was sharing the grizzly details of some unlucky ghost's earthly demise?
Unfortunately, I'm afraid I know what I would do. . . I would beat myself silly, "re-kill" the ghost and/or possibly injure others around me. Just sayin'!
My worst experience at a haunted house, EVER, happened in Clearwater, Florida about twenty-five years ago. One of the scariest I had ever experienced my body just shut down and refused to move in any direction. After an what seemed like an eternity a very kindly "ghost" or "monster" was forced by the organizers to come and escort my party and ME out of the black maze!

The 2011 Coweta County Fair presented by our county's Kiwanis clubs has officially opened and visitors are pouring in. Corn dogs, smoked Kielbasa, cotton candy, and even banana pudding were a few of the fairs foods I spotted or enjoyed! Crowds were light Saturday afternoon but the beautiful weather promised a spectacular night under the midway lights!

Unfiltered and maybe an hour away from ready this last batch of peach syrup was screaming for some vodka and lemonade! I always test my syrups but this was a "taking one for the team" moment in our 90 degree heat!
The addition of the slightly-sweetened whipped cream made the "task" a enjoyable experience and I am excited to say that my peach syrup made from Indian Blood Peaches is a great success. A drop of raspberry essence was added to this experimental batch and greatly enhanced the natural raspberry-like flavors of the peach!

Georgia Ann's Garden was a happy place to be. Bottle trees and ever-blooming varieties of drought-resistant varieties of colorful flowers-all fashioned from recycled cans.

Unlike so many I'm always sad to see summer end! I've elected to "weather" the cooler months by discovering new activities that require cooler temps!
This fall's project list includes my usuals favorites-smoking chickens, making fresh sausage, curing fish! Limoncello! All fun things I love to do that really are so much more pleasant without the scorching heat!
I look forward to the Newnan Oktoberfest Beer Tasting, Fall Taste of Newnan and art walks showcasing local artists! There are so many opportunities to stroll our beautiful square when the cooler weather rolls in.
In other parts of the county cruisers gather for car shows, neighbors stroll the streets of historic neighborhoods during progressive dinners and many groups host wine tastings to raise needed funds for favorite projects.
It's really a beautiful time in South Metro Atlanta and a pleasant time to reflect on the front porch with a great glass of wine!
