Back in the flatland
Friday, November 05, 2010      4 comments

We arrived home in FL safe and sound yesterday afternoon. We were pleasantly surprised to wake up to a breezy 55 degrees this morning and I loved my walk around the neighborhood. I did 45 minutes with a sweatshirt on - don't do that too often ... Read more
Pizza lunch
Wednesday, November 03, 2010      6 comments

RB has a favorite pizza restaurant in Black Mountain, NC and we are meeting my brother and family there for lunch. It's about a 3 hour drive but we have some things to swap besides the chance for a visit and pizza. I have planned for this ... Read more
Windy, raw and cloudy

The laundry is done, the fridge is about empty and the cabin is looking too neat to be lived in - that is the state of getting ready to head out of the mountains. I rode the bike on the deck for the last time this season and pulled it in ou... Read more
Waiting for the sun to come up
Monday, November 01, 2010      2 comments

Actually the sun is up - it is just not up over the tree line so that I can go for a walk in comfort. It's 40 degrees out there this morning - not complaining - I like the cooler days. I'm going up to the office and do a spark video and then s... Read more
Starting to pack

Today is the day we begin to think about closing up the cabin as we head back to FL on Wednesday. It is so beautiful here now we are wondering why we are leaving but obligations persist and I am again missing my granddaughter. She sent us her ... Read more

The only thing I came home with today were 3 paperback books for .25 each. I found a little rolling tea cart that with some heavy duty sanding and replacing the wheels could be used in the kitchen but they were starting at $75. and I was thinki... Read more
Temperature plunge

We've been enjoying some mild days here in north GA but that changed last night and we woke up to 44 degrees. I'm waiting for the sun to get up above the tree line before I go walking but will do my bike and spark video first. Yesterday th... Read more

I am so impressed by the two videos I've seen so far that I wish I had looked at some of them sooner. I glanced at a few in the beginning of my Spark journey but did not really pay attention. I can see using them on rainy days, on the road in ... Read more
More rain.............

We had bursts of rain late in the evening last night and heavy rain all through the night and still coming down. There will definitely be no walk up the mountain this morning. I'll do my bike on the deck (fortunately it is covered) and try som... Read more
Cloudy day

The prediction for today is thunderstorms off and on all day here in the north Ga mountains. I walked early this morning in the balmy breezes thinking that might be my only chance but so far it has just been a cloudy day with no rain. The ... Read more
Leaves are down

It started storming in the middle of the night and it continues - it is really coming down. It's a good thing I swept off the decks yesterday to make room for all the leaves that have come off with the wind and rain. Ah well, I'm thinkin... Read more
Getting back in the groove
Sunday, October 24, 2010      3 comments

So the time change for my trip to AZ through me a curve and I had a little trouble re-setting my internal clock but today is the day to crush that little voice that says you need rest. I've had enough rest. We only have a little over a w... Read more
Chilly morning

The thermometer is just below 40 this morning. We were thinking of participating in the community yard sale today but I am glad now we did not. It would have been really chilly setting up out there. We decided to do the yard sale in FL when w... Read more
Motivational issues
Friday, October 22, 2010      4 comments

Still having trouble getting back in the groove from our vacation/reunion in AZ. My sleep patterns are still off and I feel generally tired probably because I am not sleeping well. I've done 30 minutes on the bike, some housework and wal... Read more
I think that I shall never see a poem....
Thursday, October 21, 2010      4 comments

A little poetry slander there but aren't the trees unusually beautiful this year. Here in the Blue Ridge area of the Appalachian mountains they seem brighter than usual. We also have lots on the ground already and it seems early for that but w... Read more
