Cranking up the bike

Monday, August 16, 2010      6 comments

I noticed this morning that I was not working really hard on the stationary bike and was barely feeling winded after 15 minutes so I turned the dial to make the resistance more difficult and that slowed me down to 15 mph but definitely feeling t... Read more

Sunday routine

Sunday, August 15, 2010      4 comments

Since we found the Saturday evening church service we are sort of a loss on Sunday mornings on what to do with ourselves. I should start thinking of Sundays here in the mountains as Monday and just get up and go for a walk since I have the time... Read more

Friday, August 13, 2010      6 comments

I found a site on the internet that advertises local garage sales and I have two good possibilities for tomorrow morning. I find it an inexpensive way to furnish the cabin with the little extras. I'm always looking for things to do with deer s... Read more

We have some men coming today to expand the driveway a little bit - it's very difficult to back out of the garage and head up the driveway with another vehicle parked in the driveway. We're also having some fill dirt and stone put under the bac... Read more

What are you grateful for?

Wednesday, August 11, 2010      5 comments

I was cruising Spark Café a few minutes ago and one of the questions was to name three things that you are grateful for today. Well, that was easy enough to reel off: a loving husband, a super, well-adjusted grand daughter, two responsible adu... Read more

Is cooler weather ever coming?????

Tuesday, August 10, 2010      7 comments

It's not supposed to be this hot everywhere. It was not supposed to be that cold last winter. Are we going to have "normal" seasons again or do we just need to learn to live with what we have????? We usually see temperatures dropping in e... Read more

River walk

Yesterday we took a drive up to Murphy, NC - it's only 45 minutes. They have a lovely park with a walking path that meanders around the edge of the Valley River and eventually connects to the Hiawassee River. We walked a goodly portion of the ... Read more

Quiet time

Sunday, August 08, 2010      4 comments

Today I feel the need for some quiet time so this is my second trip to my office this morning. I don't know why I need to do this routinely. With just RB and I most of the time I can usually have all the quiet time I want but sometimes I just ... Read more

Deer news

Saturday, August 07, 2010      3 comments

I have learned so much about deer this summer. The white tail deer that are common to this area were once close to extinction but are now abundant due to changing regulations. When the tail is up and waving the deer sense danger and use it as ... Read more

Perpetual motion required

Friday, August 06, 2010      3 comments

In order to do over 20,000 steps per day, there can be no slacking or sitting around. Yesterday to make my goal I had to walk around the house from the front deck to the back and again and again (it was pouring rain for which we are very gratef... Read more

OK, I made it one day for over 20,000. Today it is after 11 and I am not as far along as I was yesterday so I'm thinking I need to come up with some stuff to do this afternoon that will keep me moving. I was planning on cutting up peaches that... Read more

Steps are going up again

Tuesday, August 03, 2010      6 comments

I sort of lost my momentum on reaching 20,000 steps daily when I was in full blown allergy attack status but I'm gaining on it again and hope to make my goal today. So far, I have walked 40 minutes in the hills which is a nice workout and 6... Read more

Moving about

Monday, August 02, 2010      5 comments

I walked up the street early this morning and am beginning to notice much improvement in my breathing as I climb the first hill. I am hoping that means better endurance and improved health. When I got back I had a couple glasses of water an... Read more
