March Weekend Events: Sounds Like Spring, Smells Like Spring 03/12-14

Do you hear the sounds? Do you smell the smells? I don’t know about you, but it sure sounds and smells like Spring is almost here! Waking up to birds chirping for several days has been so very refreshing after such a harsh winter.  And, after being couped up for much of this season, it is time to get out and take advantage of the longer days.

While there isn’t much going on in the way of activities seemingly, what are some things that you and your family are planning on doing this weekend? Are there any events going on that aren’t mentioned here? We welcome your ideas and comments, so please feel free to share!


Don’t forget! This Sunday morning begins Daylight Savings Time and we spring forward, losing an hour of sleep but are rewarded with longer, sunnier days. 2 am Sunday is when the time change takes place. You might be wondering why it seems that we are changing the clocks so early, but federal laws were changed in 2007 and moved back to the 2nd  Sunday in March adding almost a month to Daylight Savings Time.  It’s also a good time to change the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide alarms while changing clocks.


The WeeCycle Childrens’ Consignment Sale will also be coming to an end this Saturday, March 13th from 10 am – 7 pm, but you can still shop each day during the same hours. Saturday will also hold a few specials like Half-Price Sales All Day! At 10 am, there will be a Give-Away from the Watauga Women’s Center, A FREE annual exam with Dr. Cecilia Grasinger! Ladies, taking care of ourselves is so important, so this is an Awesome prize! Make sure to attend the sale ahead of time and register for this. The WeeCycle Spring Sale is located at 1100 East King Street, Boone, NC (Near New Market Center – at the old  Mitsubishi /Hyundai Bldg.)

Also, make sure to check out Keri’s and her husband’s new website, (And Please See Note At Bottom For Exciting News!) for their Wooden Toy and Home Decor business, Heavenly Creations Decor, currently under construction, so please pardon their cyber dust. Even so, this will give you a look at some of the products they have to offer and who they are. They are constantly adding new inventory as well.

Here is a current item being offered: Toy Helicopter with Turning Rotor Blade – It’s a Plane, It’s a Bird, No, it’s Times Past Toys Helicopter with turning Rotor Blade flying through the sky right into your child’s play time. Watch them come to life zooming by as a pilot of their very own Helicopter. Shown here in Pink, Helicopters aren’t all just for boys. Helicopter with turning Rotor Blade comes in a variety of colors and can be customized to your favorite colors.

Keri and her husband look forward to hearing from you and you are more than welcome to give  helpful hints as to making the website better and more user friendly. They  will soon be including links for area businesses selling Times Past Toys and Heavenly Creations Decor products and such.
