Blackberry picking

Saturday, June 26, 2010      5 comments

I went out last night after supper and was able to pick about 2 cups of berries in about 5 minutes but definitely decided it is a 2 man job. Very hard to move the thorny branches, hold a container and pick! RB will go out with me next time so ... Read more

Moving rocks

Friday, June 25, 2010      2 comments

I was outside at 7:15 a.m. this morning (while it was still relatively cool in the mountains) moving some rocks along the front walk so we can re-do that area. There are wood timbers and small stones on the lower walk so we wanted the upper are... Read more

Raking leaves

Thursday, June 24, 2010      2 comments

We're not supposed to be raking leaves in the Summer but there you have it. The little cabin has had so many leaves piled in front of it for so long that we thought it is probably not good for the wood on the house so we raked and used the blow... Read more

Fun day

Wednesday, June 23, 2010      6 comments

My sister-in-law (also named Donna) and I had a fantastic day shopping, poking in antique stores and having lunch at the corner café downtown. I found a great purse - on sale, of course and I added 3 books to my Mary Higgins Clark collection. ... Read more

Adjusting to life in the mountains

Tuesday, June 22, 2010      3 comments

We've been here a little over week and I am finally beginning to feel "here" as opposed to "there". That may sound nuts but it takes a while to adapt to a second home and this is our first summer in this home although we have done this for four... Read more

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

Saturday, June 19, 2010      4 comments

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....

Friday, June 18, 2010      3 comments

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

We're here!

The mountains are beautiful. The trees and shrubs have all filled in and everything is SO green!... 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
