The best laid plans..........
Saturday, August 21, 2010      6 comments

We woke up this morning to pouring rain - so loud it actually did wake us early. So much for the walk up the "mountain", hitting the benefit flea market at the supermarket and finishing the perimeter of the rock garden. I played games on the c... Read more
Rock garden
Friday, August 20, 2010      8 comments

I decided I had a nice little area out in front of the cabin that was just crying for a rock garden so I spent about a half hour gathering up some rocks from around the yard and got one half of the the perimeter done. There are tons more rocks ... Read more
Strange blog
Thursday, August 19, 2010      5 comments

Boy, that was a weird blog yesterday - why did I even do one??? I think I am addicted to checking off the list of spark points and feel like I am required to do as many as possible in any given day. Talk about compulsive behavior!!!! Anyw... Read more

Rain, rain, we're so glad you're here!

I was putting on my sneakers this morning and RB said it's raining out. I looked up and saw a fairly heavy rain coming down - more than you would want to walk in. I went to the bike instead and did 30 minutes on that. We are headed in to town... Read more
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
Garage sale search
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
Stone work
Thursday, August 12, 2010      6 comments

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
Monday, August 09, 2010      5 comments

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
