Taking advantage of quiet

Three more people in the house cause chaos and fun! I've walked and am going out to the deck to ride the bike but thought I would Spark while it was still quiet. We're off to Blue Ridge today to ride the train through the mountains and we'... Read more

A day with a granddaughter

Thursday, July 15, 2010      4 comments

My sweet sunshine is 11 almost 12 and a treasure to spend time with. Late this morning mom and stepdad went for a walk - my sunshine had slept in from the long drive, excitement of arriving and staying up late last night. When she got up we had... Read more

Thank, thank you, thank you!

Many thanks to everyone who gave me advice on the scary dogs, I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! I found my walking stick and just having it in my hand made me feel better and braver walking by! I may also get some pepper spray to keep... Read more

Scary Dogs

Tuesday, July 13, 2010      7 comments

My morning walk is taking me further up the street and rounding a curve a few days ago I encountered two VERY ferocious Dobermans which caused me to do an immediate about face. I saw a neighbor out yesterday and asked if she knew anything about... Read more

Adding some flowers

Monday, July 12, 2010      2 comments

Today we'll add some hooks to hang plants off the front deck to add a little color. The holly shrubs got trimmed back and there is another shrub out front but I don't know what it is - we'll let those grow a little before we add anything else -... Read more

Hanging the windchimes

Now that the decks are cleaned, stained and sealed we dug out what furniture we had in the basement and added a few pieces. The Andironrack chairs and the glider went on the front deck and a new table and chairs on the back. Still leaving room... Read more

Only one to go!

There is one window in the basement and that is the only one left to be stained and sealed and oh, yeah, cleaned! That turned in to a little bit, bigger job than I ever thought it would. We ran out of stuff so will need to get a little more bu... Read more

Stuff you just gotta do!

I've spent about an hour ironing this morning because I tend to put it off until there is enough to warrant dragging out the ironing board and setting it up. I've got one of the upstairs room for company and about an hours work left to get the ... Read more

A night off

We're headed over to my brother's cabin for dinner tonight. My sister-in-law and their daughter have been here for some time but my brother just flew in today. She has cooked his favorite meal: meat loaf, mashed potatoes and green beans and we... Read more

Still staining and sealing

OK. so we are convinced that cute little cabins still take a fair amount of maintenance especially since it appears nothing was done to this since it was built. Window trim is taking 2 to 3 coats depending on how much sun it gets. Decks are ta... Read more

Good news

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
