New Year's Eve Eve

It is so beautiful here today on Ocracoke. The winds are balmy, the sky is blue, the temperatures are just cool enough for a jacket and just warm enough for a jacket.

It is a busy day here as there is an all you can eat oyster fest to benefit the Fish House. Tonight is a storytelling performance by Donald Davis at the Community Center. Everyone is abuzz over these activities. In between we are cleaning and packing as we leave for Indiana in the morning. Philip is driving me back and staying a couple of weeks. The shop is closed. I am glad that he wants to spend his vacation in my little town in Indiana. He can write during the day...evenings we can read or walk or go to the movies or the coffee house. If we are lucky we will have a blizzard and he can shovel!!

Until back home again, Happy New Year's Day!

Lou Ann

Lou Ann Homan-Saylor lives in Angola, Indiana which is nestled in the hills of Northern Indiana. When she is home at the White Picket Gardens you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, a teacher, a writer, an actress and a collector of front porch stories.
