Today I climbed a mountain...........

Thursday, September 29, 2011      5 comments

OK, so it's not really a mountain but it seems like one. When I leave the cabin on foot I first have to climb the driveway which is very steep and then I turn right and keep going up. One time I counted the steps and it is something like 300 u... Read more

So does this make me a runner????????????????

Wednesday, September 28, 2011      10 comments

Yesterday and today I went down to the river walk and while doing my brisk walk I felt the urge to run. What, me, run???? I'm an almost 64 year old over weight grandmother! I talked myself into a few running steps and it felt pretty good so ... Read more

Enjoying the day

I woke early this morning and could not go back to sleep so I got up about 6:30 and had a cup of tea while playing some computer games. Then I did 30 minutes on the bike out on the deck - such a nice ride when it is 60 degrees out there. I cam... Read more

Frozen fruit

Tuesday, September 20, 2011      4 comments

Wow - seems like lots of us like frozen fruit. I do all kinds of berries routinely except strawberries. For some reason I just don't like them frozen. I try to stock up when the berries are plentiful but I have not done as well as usual this ... Read more

Ever tried frozen grapes?

Monday, September 19, 2011      8 comments

I forgot how good they are! They are wonderful - just take a handful and put them in a little baggie and pop them in the freezer. A few hours later take them out and enjoy! They are a wonderful sweet almost ice cream taste. This is my ne... Read more

I walked early this morning - it was tolerable because the sun was not yet up and I was back home at 7:30 with 50 minutes of walking done. I've done 40 minutes on the bike. I'm reading "The Help" and finding myself glued to the pages. I w... Read more

The fun is over................

Sunday, August 14, 2011      5 comments

The last of our family left the cabin this morning. We had a great visit but never get to do all the things we think we can do in a short time. We had a super day around Chattanooga at Lookout Mountain, Ruby Falls and Rock City. It was a lot ... Read more

Two strikes!

My granddaughter had a certificate for free bowling from a summer library program so off the girls went today. Grammie, Mom and Grand had so much fun. We were probably the worst bowlers the place had ever seen but we had the most fun. The gran... Read more

Closets Beware!

Monday, August 01, 2011      4 comments

Since it is too hot to be outside for any length of time I am tackling closets. The community we live in up in North Georgia has a yard sale in October and I thought it would be fun to take some stuff up there and see if we can get rid of it. ... Read more

Hot, Hotter, Hottest

This morning I went out walking at 7 a.m. It was 75 degrees which doesn't sound bad but the humidity had to be way up there and there was not one tiny little breeze the whole 40 minutes I was out there. I am so longing to go back to the cabin ... Read more

Trying to stay positive

Thursday, July 28, 2011      4 comments

All in all I am doing pretty well on my food intake. Lots of fruit and veggies, keeping carbs at each meal around 35-40 grams, limiting salty snacks, etc. Hopefully, I'm getting the blood sugar under control. My exercise slacks off when m... Read more

NOT enjoying the heat

Monday, July 25, 2011      4 comments

It amazes me how much a difference of 10-12 degrees makes in how you feel. We are back in Florida and I went out early for a walk and got slapped in the face with the humidity. It was nice to see how green everything is so I assume we have bee... Read more

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
