I Miss Esbee

Winston-Salem's first lady, uber-blogger Esbee, has been on hiatus for about 10 days and I have to say it's like having a friend you talk to every day leave town.  It's funny because she's interested in things that, quite frankly, I wouldn't do in five lifetimes, but at the same time it's fun to read her dispatches from around town.  Since I rarely venture far from the confines of my home office she's been my lifeline to all things Winston-Salem.  I have a feeling that she's filled the same role for the thousands of people who visit her blog every day so I'm guessing that she's received hundreds of emails from readers suffering Esbeedrawals asking her what's up and when she'll be back.  The sign on her blog says she'll be back November 5-ish and I'm hoping that the -ish is closer to five than to nine or ten.

Until she's back you should check out the profile that Winston-Salem Monthly did on Esbee, aka Lucy Cash.

    Me too. Since I’m new to W-S, LIF has gotten me up to speed to the goings on. Esbee has also been kind enough to let me contribute and for that I am grateful.

    YD, I really enjoy your guest posts although it sometimes depresses me how little I know about my yard. It also reminds me how far we’ve let the landscaping of our domain go wild. The previous owners loved their landscaping, and as retirees spent a great deal of time on it. It looked good the first season after we moved in, but since then it’s been an absolute fiasco. I’ve threatened to plow it all under and cover it with rocks, but Celeste won’t let me. For now we’re calling it our “Suburban Wild” look. One benefit: when everyone else’s lawn is brown our crabgrass is a healthy green. Keep it cut short enough and no one knows any better.
