Welcome to Dirt Road Adventures! Spring is in the air!
Can you feel it?
Well we are having crazy weather and one day I’m feeling it and the next we have the heat back on.
We have trees budding out and flowers popping through the ground.
It’s way too early, but I am tired of Winter, so I sorta like it.
Are you feeling like Spring? Ready for some Spring inspiration?
I’ve started decorating for Spring, and it feels so refreshing.

This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.
First, you saw that we worked at the Beach Cottage last weekend. We were working on the bathroom remodel, and I shared the faux wallpaper technique with you on Thursday.
So we came home on Tuesday and immediately took Rudy to the veterinarian because he was biting at his backside.
We thought he had allergies, but it was a ruptured gland.
Fortunately, it’s nothing serious, and we are forcing antibiotics down his throat because there’s no fooling that boy.
This is our first experience trying to give him medicine.
We have tried everything, and somehow, the pill always ends up on the floor, stuck in his fur or anywhere but in his stomach.
We’ve put it in peanut butter, inside a piece of hot dog, inside a treat, opened the capsule, and mixed the powder into all of the above, and it’s not going down his throat.
The only solution is to force his mouth open and push it down his throat.
Even with this technique, we still can’t seem to keep it down.
I think we held his mouth shut in the last episode until it dissolved.
He’s not speaking to us currently.
I know I’ll find those pills all around the house for weeks. Only nine more pills to go. LOL
A Mini Adventure
Brad and I have started having mini adventures exploring out-of-the-way and unusual places to eat. Did you see the trip to the Five Star Gas Station a few weeks ago?
This past week we decided to have lunch at a little cafe that we stumbled across.
Fat N Sassy Cafe is located on the outskirts of Asheboro in an old country store building.
I love seeing old buildings being refurbished and put to good use.
The interior was well decorated with a nod to an old country store. They also have outdoor seating, which I’d like to experience on a warmer day.
This restaurant serves breakfast and lunch. The lunch menu consists primarily of hamburgers, bar-b-que, hot dogs, and several choices of veggies. I believe they also have daily specials
I had a delicious cheese burger, and Brad had a bar-b-que plate with vegetables.
Most of the tables were filled, and it was a pleasant surprise. If you are in the area, you should check it out.
In Case You Missed It

A friend recommends this supplement, and I’ve been taking it for a few days. I will make sure to update you soon.
