Clean up day

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Today is the day we prepare to head back to Florida and leave our little cabin for about 2 weeks.

The grand was much better yesterday but then she woke in the middle of the night and now looks like tonsils are swollen and white spots so will take her to the clinic when she wakes up again. Hopefully, they can give her something to make the ride home more tolerable for her. Nothing harder to bear than a sick child and she wants her mom. No matter how much you love other people when you are sick you just need mom.

    Poor baby. Nothing worse than a sick child who is away from mom. I hope she feels better soon.

Rainy days in the mountains

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

We have changing thunderstorms most every day here in north GA. This morning I was on the deck early and the sun was out. Within a few minutes the clouds rolled in and it was black as could be and windy. Within another few minutes the sun was back. No rain yet today but we usually get that around dinner time. Keeps the day interesting when we have to keep changing plans to fit in with the weather.

    We've been getting it here in Florida too! (Finally!) It sure makes it hard to decide what to do for the day especially if it involves outdoor activities doesn't it? I hope your grand is feeling better today! Enjoy your day!

The grand is sick

Monday, June 27, 2011

Our granddaughter woke up with a sore throat - this is not supposed to happen when you are visiting Grammie and Gramps. We've spend the day entertaining her and we are both hoarse from reading one book after another. Gramps is down there doing it again. I went out and got her some spray that will numb it for a while. Hopefully, it will be a short term thing and we can go back to having fun tomorrow.

    Oh dear, what a bummer! I hope she gets better soon for everyone's sake. Summer colds and sore throats are terrible. I'm sure you will take good care of her but all of you would rather be out having fun!

Sleeping in

Sunday, June 26, 2011

The grand is still sleeping this morning. I have read on the deck, finished 30 minutes on the treadmill and 30 minutes on the bike, did a little strength training. I'm finishing up the spark and will see what other quiet activities I can come up with before she wakes up. Today we are heading up to Blue Ridge to see if we can find one of those places to do some gem mining - she loves that. I might have time to explore a few of the fun shops along the main street and see if I can find any treasures.

Enjoy your day.

River walk

Saturday, June 25, 2011

This morning I did 30 minutes on the bike on the deck - a beautiful 65 degrees here in the mountains. After making pancakes for the grand and Gramps (but not eating them - I had cheerios with blueberries -yum!) I went down to the river walk and walked for 40 minutes there - so nice to be outside. Then I took myself over to the Beall's outlet and found a great pair of sandals and a jeans skirt - my reward for staying true to myself this week.

This afternoon we are going down for the Saturday church service at 5:30, will find a little supper - I'm hoping for a nice salad with maybe some grilled chicken on top and then we are going to try a local favorite "Pickin on the Porch". Bluegrass musicians play on the porch of the general store - bring your own chair and sit under the stars I think that might require a batch of popcorn - air- popped, of course!
