Sore calves
Monday, June 21, 2010      3 comments

Uphill walking and going up and down stairs multiple times per day has helped me to find muscles I wasn't using in Florida and my calves are a little sore today. I am venturing a little further each day but may need to back off a little until t... Read more
Blackberries in the yard!
Sunday, June 20, 2010      6 comments

This morning I found a big blackberry bush in the corner of the yard. Some parts of it (the thorny ones) are just loaded with berries - the ones on the outer edges are gone. I think the deer have probably eaten those. The berries are not quit... Read more
Still up and running

The internet has been up and running for over 24 hours now so maybe we have it licked. I went out this morning looking for a farmer's market here in the mountains but no success yet. I followed some signs that said farmer's market but the... Read more
Trusting one who knows....

Over the 42 years of our marriage I have learned to trust RB's opinion about anything technical, mechanical, etc. Yesterday he said he did not have a comfort level with the Internet and he was right again. It went out last night but he went ou... Read more
The simple joy of Internet access
Thursday, June 17, 2010      4 comments

I hate to admit it but I am an Internet junkie. I can go without TV and cable easily but I walk to the computer several times a day and then turn around and go do something else but today I have it and I am enjoying it! We actually got hooked ... Read more
Biking on the deck
Wednesday, June 16, 2010      5 comments

I moved the stationary bike out to the back deck and while I was riding this morning a deer came running across the back yard. Not a sight you see in Florida!!! Actually we see deer every morning and late afternoon - they must have a regular t... Read more
Bear Sightings!!!!!!
Tuesday, June 15, 2010      7 comments

OK, so here we are in the mountains and the first thing we see when we pull in the gate is a sign that bears have been sighted in the area and to use caution. So what kind of caution do we use when we are out for our morning walk and we meet a ... Read more

Saturday musings....
Saturday, June 12, 2010      3 comments

Even though we are retired now I still think of Saturday as a day off and try to follow a different routine. Early this morning I spent some time on the computer doing a few small things I've wanted to do for a while (sort photos, etc.). T... Read more

My walk this morning was HOT. The humidity is still down a little but not nearly as nice as yesterday. Next I'll do my bike ride and some strength exercises. Looking forward to seafood dinner tonight - especially since I'm not cooking i... Read more
Farmer's Market
Thursday, June 10, 2010      8 comments

Yesterday afternoon I went to the local farmer's market and felt like a kid in a toy store. We've been doing minimal grocery shopping pending our eventual leave for the cabin but since we have at least 3 days before we go fresh produce was defi... Read more

What a beautiful walk this morning. A slight breeze, minimal humidly - relatively speaking for Florida! It even seemed like the birds were singing more joyously today. Have a great day!... Read more
Sometimes it works.............
Tuesday, June 08, 2010      3 comments

Strangest fridge we have ever had. Sometimes it works, sometimes I have frozen cukes in the fridge section. Sometimes the temperature is right and other times it is 10-12 degrees colder than we have it set for!!!! This is a 2 month old French... Read more
Update

The fridge seems to be working OK! We will give it 24 hours and if all is well, we're out of here. The air this morning on my walk was soooooooooooo heavy and humid. I did 30 minutes and will add some bike time to make up for not doing 45... Read more
