Saturday fun

Saturday, July 23, 2011      3 comments

Today is the day we check out the local garage sales and have breakfast out. We both look forward to the hunt for treasures. Not much luck today - I found a wind sock for $1 that will add some color to the patio in Florida and that was it. ... Read more

Putting the room back together

Friday, July 22, 2011      1 comments

Our paint job yesterday turned out spectacular. When we bought the cabin last year we just moved our stuff from the other house in NC here and did not do much of anything as there was no time and the inside did not look too bad. But now that w... Read more

Well rested at last!

Thursday, July 21, 2011      1 comments

This morning I woke up at 5:30 again but rolled over and went right back to sleep. The next thing I knew it was 7:30! Now that is a little late for me but I can adjust and move on with the day. I'm getting ready to paint one of the upsta... Read more

Internal clock off

Wednesday, July 20, 2011      1 comments

For some strange reason I am waking up at 5 a.m. and cannot go back to sleep. I made myself stay there until 5:30 but I was just getting annoyed so I got up and started the day. It is now 9:15 and I have completed 45 minutes on the treadmi... Read more

Up too early today

Tuesday, July 19, 2011      8 comments

This morning I woke up about 5 a.m. and could not go back to sleep. I made a cup of tea and played computer games for half an hour and then I went out on the deck and did the bike ride for 30 minutes (the deer were laying down in the back yard!... Read more

Spacious kitchen in a tiny space

Monday, July 18, 2011      2 comments

My handy husband built 3 drawers inside a cabinet that now stores about 3 times as much as I could put underneath that cabinet before. My tiny little cabin kitchen now has great storage. He is going to put 2 drawers in another much smaller cab... Read more

Sunday meanderings

Sunday, July 17, 2011      2 comments

Today we went in to the city for lunch. It also happens to be our nearest Publix and I do miss that store when we are in the mountains. I'm not sure whether we wanted the lunch or the Publix more but we got to do both. If anyone has ever ... Read more

Garage sales

Saturday, July 16, 2011      3 comments

One of our fun things to do when in the mountains is to check out the local garage sales. This morning we stopped at four places but only found a few treasures at the first one. I bought a set of new Pyrex (5) bowls with covers and a tableclot... Read more

Painting the closets

Friday, July 15, 2011      4 comments

Today my chore is to paint the three upstairs closets. It is really not a chore as I enjoy painting. They will all be done a light off grey color as this was left over paint we had from a previous house - we try not to be wasteful and besides ... Read more

Getting to work

Thursday, July 14, 2011      2 comments

We've not had much time at the cabin this year and what time we have had has been busy with company so for the next week or so we want to accomplish a couple of small projects. The kitchen is quite small and short on storage space so RB i... Read more

No exercise for 2 days

Wednesday, July 13, 2011      4 comments

Yikes, how easy it is to get out of routine. Monday I spent most of the day at jury duty and then stopped to visit an elderly friend so by the time I got home I needed to start some dinner and then exhaustion hit me. Yesterday we were in t... Read more

Jury duty

Tuesday, July 12, 2011      4 comments

So I was up at 5 a.m. yesterday to get myself down to Bartow (80 mile round trip). The jury lot was already full when I got there. I had to park several blocks away in the overflow lot which was OK except for the heat and the crush of people. ... Read more

Enjoying the day

Sunday, July 10, 2011      1 comments

Today I am thinking positive and hoping we can leave for the cabin this week. The last thing pending is jury duty tomorrow. I am selfishly hoping I only have to go the one day. I live in the northeast section of Polk - about as far away from ... Read more

A nothing sort of day

Saturday, July 09, 2011      2 comments

I got up this morning and it felt good not to have to go anywhere. I played on the computer for a few minutes and then went for a walk. I thought it would be short as it was getting hot already but the cloud cover and a slight breeze help... Read more

Some good news

Friday, July 08, 2011      4 comments

Of the myriad of blood tests done this past week, I have good news on one front and fair news on the other. The iron is increasing - slowly but it is up. The blood glucose is also up 2 more points even though I was being careful about what I a... Read more
