Lunch in Mooresville

I recently met up with my friend, Cynthia, for lunch at Java Mooresville.

And yes Miss Photographer left her car door open and I had a hard time cropping it out.lol

Cynthia and I have been friends for about 30 years now. We met at Southside Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama. You may remember that she is the friend I saw Steel Magnolias with when we had a girls night out in the 80s.  We are both nurses so we have that in common as well.  Cynthia's daughter got married and we had to discuss all the details.

We both enjoyed a glass of sweet tea. I had a Gouda and Apple Grilled Croissant while Cynthia enjoyed Chicken Salad.


The small restaurant also sells antiques.

Here is the creamer that came home with me...

It came from a family farm in Tennessee. I cannot resist blue and white.

Quilts galore and all were so pretty. I would have liked to purchase one of these gut they are a bit pricy.


The cherry tree in side yard was absolutely beautiful.

Mooresville is the oldest city in Alabama. Tomorrow I will share some pictures I took while driving through the small town.

Hey Guys,just adding this little note. We had  a lot of damage in Decatur from Straight line winds Tuesday evening. As a result our internet was down and when I was trying to add comments, some did not get published. So if you do not see your comment, it is the computer's fault.lol Someone wanted to know what my sister's Different Names were....Kristi Denise is my middle sister. Back in 1958 no one was named Kristi. Now is is quite popular. My mother was a trend setter. My baby sister is Leta Lynn. When we first moved to Huntsville, Marvin's boss's wife was Leta. I was telling her my sister's name and believe it or not her name was also Leta Lynn.  It is a small world. Here is another funny fact. When we lived in Athens Ga, the professor over seeing Marvin's work had a birthday of December 6th. Our son Ben was born on Alan's Birthday. I was pregnant while we were in Athens and Amelia was born on July 2nd. Alan's wife, Ava also had a birthday on July 2nd. We laughed about the fact that the Grimms will do anything to get in good with the boss.

Have a blessed day and remember to be thankful for all the community workers who help in times of trouble. So thankful for Decatur Utilities and all the other volunteers cutting trees off of roads and houses.

I guess I missed the news. Glad y'all were ok. I would have picked out that creamer as well.

What a blessing it is for you to get to spend some time with a dear friend!
Our mother used names for start with L for all of us. I’m Linda, then Lloydine - which is a combination of Lloyd and Pauline. Then there’s Lanita and Lonnie and Luann. Her last pregnancy was twins. The baby boy died but he was named Clayton after his father and the girl is Sharon but she goes by Shari. Lloydine has never liked her name so she uses Deanie! Lanita is called Nita.
Names are interesting subjects!

Hope things return quickly to normal following your storms! I had heard of the storms going through Georgia, but they didn't elaborate on area. It looks like you had a wonderful outing with your friend.

Seems we've had some strong winds lately too, much stronger than usual. It is always nice to meet with old friends for a day of fellowship, one of my favorite things to do.

I'm so sorry to learn about the destruction in your area due to the straight line winds. That had to be scary! We had high winds here Monday night through all day yesterday, but nothing that caused damage.

Enjoyed seeing the quilts and the blue and white that went home with you. :-) I know you enjoyed spending that lunchtime with your friend!

Hope all is well in Decatur soon. The north part of the state is really vulnerable to these types of storms. Those quilts are so beautiful. I wish I could fluff them out and look at each one.

I saw the bad storms showing up in your area on the weather channel. I hope you are alright and everything gets taken care of. Sweet hugs, Diane

I'm sorry to learn of the bad storm that went through your area! Hope there were no injuries! That little coffee shop looks like a great place to visit! Your croissant sounds delicious! I love the little blue and white creamer!! Hooray for fun finds in antique stores!!

Mary said...

Those winds were quite severe, we had them in NY and I had a huge branch of my weeping willow come down Tues night. Oh, I would love that town and restaurant, great food, antiques and catching up with an old friend, perfect day! The quilts are gorgeous and your little creamer is very sweet.

Mary said...

What a coincidence of the names! Leta Lyn is indeed unusual. I knew of no Kristi's growing up, your Mom was indeed a trend setter!

Mrs.T said...

We had very high winds here yesterday as well! We read in the morning paper that about 60,000 in our state lost power. Thankfully, we were not among them.

Java and Mooresville both look like wonderful places to visit! Your lunch sounded wonderful. I would have chosen that same cream pitcher, though I surely don't need one!

Arlene, what a cute coffeehouse. What fun to explore the oldest town with your friend. I'm glad that the wind didn't cause too many problems for you.
