Good news
Tuesday, July 06, 2010      4 comments

We learned today that our daughter and family will be coming up this weekend to spend a week or so here. I'm already planning menus and making lists of fun things to do for all of us and to keep our granddaughter entertained. I also need t... Read more
62 degrees
Monday, July 05, 2010      3 comments

We woke up to a cool morning and I almost felt chilly out on the deck while I rode my bike. After a quick trip to Walmart (sometimes I think I live there) I drove down to one of the community walking paths and walked through the woods beside th... Read more
The parade
Sunday, July 04, 2010      3 comments

Our little town had it's parade last night. We went down and found a parking spot (no easy task!) and walked over by the courthouse so we could have a good view. We had lots of tributes to the military (both living and gone) and I was pleased ... Read more
Friday Evening Downtown Stroll
Saturday, July 03, 2010      2 comments

The little town we live in in the mountains sponsors an evening stroll on the first Friday of the month in the historic district. I'm only talking about 3 or 4 blocks and that includes the courthouse. We like to support local business so we we... Read more
How did I have time to go to work?
Friday, July 02, 2010      4 comments

We are project people. I'm not sure how we got to be that way or if we are that way by nature. We like to have our little projects around the house, on the computer or going off somewhere. We have several things going on in the cabin: sealin... Read more
Moving about where ever you can
Thursday, July 01, 2010      3 comments

We've had a very busy morning. It was nice and cool this morning so the bike went back out on the deck and I had 30 minutes finished before 8 a.m. We had tons of errands to do and had to go in to the "city". It's not really a city just ... Read more
Walking at Wal-mart
Wednesday, June 30, 2010      5 comments

Being a creature of comfort I will always walk in AC if I have a choice so when RB said he needed to get some supplies for the shelves in the laundry area this morning, I'm in for a trip to Wal-Mart. I walked up and down every aisle in our sup... Read more
So close
Tuesday, June 29, 2010      2 comments

OK, so after dinner I vegged out and forgot about my new goal of hitting 20,000 steps until I was going to bed and would you believe I was at 19,348 steps. I could have walked up and down the driveway a couple of times to put me over the edge i... Read more
First day
Monday, June 28, 2010      4 comments

I'm off to a good start on my first day of consistently hitting 20,000 steps per day. I didn't go for a walk this morning but I am working on getting some sealer on the the window frames of the cabin so I am up and down the stairs and step stoo... Read more
New goals
Sunday, June 27, 2010      5 comments

For next week I want to try to reach at least 20,000 steps per day, M-F. On the weekends, I'll be happy with 15,000. On an average day, I do somewhere between 15,000 and 20,000 so this should give me a good steady increase without pushing ... Read more
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
