Hanging the windchimes

Sunday, July 11, 2010      7 comments

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

Wednesday, July 07, 2010      4 comments

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

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?

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

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
