Surviving jury duty

Wednesday, December 17, 2014      3 comments

The jury selection process is frustrating, time consuming and inefficient to me. The #1 issue for me is the drive to get there -about 45-60 in good circumstances. Add VERY heavy fog and it becomes 80-90 minutes. Over 300 people are in a room ... Read more

December 13 ?????????

Saturday, December 13, 2014      4 comments

Here we are half way through December and I'm not nearly ready for Christmas to come in less than two weeks. To start with I have jury duty on Monday. I think my part of the county is about as far away as you can get from the courthouse ... Read more

The sun at last

Thursday, November 27, 2014      5 comments

Yesterday we had lots and lots of rain in central Florida which we truly needed. The temperature stayed in the 50's and it was windy and cold. I know, I know, half the country is laughing that we don't know what cold is. I should say cold for... Read more

Some nights are like that....

Wednesday, October 22, 2014      8 comments

I usually go to bed and go right to sleep but every now and then I have one of those nights that I do not sleep well. I went right to sleep but woke up about 3 a.m. and could not get back to sleep. I stayed in bed until about 6 and had a heada... Read more

Cooking day

Thursday, October 16, 2014      4 comments

Yesterday we went to Sam's to stock up as we came home from the cabin to an empty freezer. $200. later and a day of prep and cooking resulted in about a half full freezer. We have pork for about 10 meals, 6 ground beef patties, 2 pkgs. of 3/4 ... Read more

Heading home

Monday, October 13, 2014      5 comments

It is always a little sad when we have to pack up the cabin and head back to Florida. The leaves are awesome colors and are flying off the trees these days. Just enough wind to make them come down. Our little town is in the middle of its year... Read more

The Wal-Mart Walk

Wednesday, October 08, 2014      6 comments

Another morning of heavy thunderstorms so today I opted for walking at Wal-Mart. I put my sneakers on and I go up and down every aisle at the fastest pace I can do. If I see someone in the aisle and it is too narrow to pass I go to the next ai... Read more

Rainy days in the mountains

Tuesday, October 07, 2014      3 comments

I'm always surprised at how much time goes by between blogs. When I do blog I appreciate the feedback and support that comes my way so I know I should do it more often. This morning we had really heavy thunderstorms so I put a movie on and... Read more

Mountain memories

Sunday, September 21, 2014      3 comments

We are enjoying being at our cabin in north GA for a few weeks. The air is cool, the humidity is low and the deer are all over the yard. We love watching them. They are white tail deer and their fur is starting to darken up as it does as the ... Read more

We've been back in Florida for about ten days and we are getting antsy to go back to the cabin. I have a dentist appointment tomorrow and then I see my PCP on Wednesday. DH has the dermatologist tomorrow and then we just have to wait for his n... Read more

Walking in the Dark

Friday, August 29, 2014      5 comments

We drove back to Florida yesterday leaving our little mountain cabin all alone with the deer. We are here for a few weeks for some routine appointments and then hope to head back to enjoy Fall and feel cool weather. This morning when I g... Read more

August 24

Sunday, August 24, 2014      4 comments

This month has just slipped by in a wonderful haze of walks up the mountain and down by the river, reading, crosswords and enjoying the deer off the back deck. There have been a few old movies throw in there and lots of rides on the stationary ... Read more

Tomorrow's plan

Friday, August 01, 2014      5 comments

In the morning (after my bike ride, of course) I'm going out to a few local yard sales. Our little down town has a farmer's market on Saturday mornings and I will also go there to stock up before going out to the orchard for more peaches. You ... Read more

Enjoying the challenge

Tuesday, July 29, 2014      6 comments

I find if I start the day with exercise I have more energy and can accomplish a great deal more than if I miss it and plan to do it later. Today I started the day with the stationary bike: one session of 24 minutes and another for 14 minutes. ... Read more

Travels on the Road

Saturday, July 26, 2014      3 comments

We got back on Wednesday from a trip to Toronto and Niagara Falls. We met our DD and DGD there (they flew and we drove). From the cabin it looked like about a 12 hour drive so we thought an easy two days. Wrong - the first day we lost 3 hours... Read more
