A Beautiful Day in Glade Valley


There was a beautiful sunrise today and it ushered in a beautiful day.  The temperature

rose into the  50’s and the day made it hard to believe that it is only a few days until

Christmas!  The trees are up and decorated.  The decorations are done outside and the

stockings are ready to be hung.  Tomorrow I will start baking Christmas cookies!

Can’t wait for the family to arrive!   We hope your family also has a wonderful holiday!



High Country Lights

Plan your visit to Glade Valley to include the High Country Light Show.  This is a huge display

of lights that dance to music.  You tune your radio to 96.5 FM and sit in your car to watch the

show.  It began on Thanksgiving night and continues until New Year’s Day from 6:00 P.M.

until 10:00 P.M.  It is located at the Glade Creek Fire Department at 6374 Glade Valley Road,

about 4 miles from us.  A really  fun thing to do while you are with us.

Festival of Trees in Sparta, North Carolina

The Festival of Trees begins this weekend in Sparta.   There will be 25 beautifully decorated

trees on display at 60 South Main Street from November 29th – December 28th.  The display

is free to the public and is beautiful with lovely quilts surrounding the trees.  The building

is open from Thursday through Saturday from 11:00 A.M. -1:00 P.M. and 3:00 – 6:00 P.M.

Fall at Glade Valley

My cactus seems to be blooming very early this year.  Usually it blooms between Thanksgiving and Christmas but this year it is in full bloom for Halloween.  Hope it isn’t a sign of an early winter here in Glade Valley.  The fall colors have been beautiful this year.
