We had a great service at church this morning. Lots more people were there. We thought it would be really quiet with people gone for the long weekend. We stopped at a little local place for coffee afterwards and I did eat one (only one!) ... Read more

My goal this week was to hit 20,000 steps by the end of the week. On Monday I was at 16,465, Tuesday was 19,431, Wednesday - 18,090, Thursday - 17,952 and finally Friday I barely broke 10,000. Friday is my day to work the church thrift shop a... Read more
Finding the dirt

I've been on a mission to get the house in tip top shape before we head back to the cabin the first of June. It seems the more I clean the more I find that needs to be cleaned. So far I have thoroughly cleaned both bathrooms, the laundry r... Read more

We went to church as usual this morning and enjoyed a special service. We go to the early service which is usually the quietest and in the summer it dwindles down to about 12-20 people after all the snowbirds leave. This morning the priest inv... Read more

Stepping up

Somehow I had been slacking off on the amount of walking I normally do in a day. Six months ago I would come pretty close if not surpass 20,000 steps a day. For the last few months I have been doing 10,000-14,000 steps per day and even less on... Read more
48 versus 70
Thursday, May 10, 2012      4 comments

This morning as I got ready to go out for my walk at 7 a.m. it was 70 degrees - I should really start walking at 6:30 so I can get in a good hour before the sun is too hot. If I had been up at the cabin this morning I could have taken my walk a... Read more

My allergy sinus cough is a little better today. I did ride the stationary bike and walked up the mountain for about 40 minutes. We did some errands and am now ready to start cabin clean up in preparation for leaving Wednesday a.m. We are tel... Read more

My allergy sinus cough has been trying to put in an appearance the last few days and I kept trying to refuse it but last night it got the best of me. Today I feel tired and drained which is usually what it does to me. Some times it goes away a... Read more
Between the raindrops
Friday, May 04, 2012      4 comments

I did 45 minutes on the bike this morning and have been trying to talk myself in to using the treadmill but I so much prefer walking outside. The rain has finally stopped so I am thinking it is time to head out before it either gets too hot or ... Read more
The mountain walk
Wednesday, May 02, 2012      1 comments

This morning I decided it was time to climb up the mountain/hill that rises past our cabin. My goal is to make it to the top without stopping for breath so I do lots of deep breathing all the way up. I would guess it is about a quarter of a m... Read more

I started the day off with a ride on the bike in the basement. I miss my bike being out on the deck and may have to change that as time goes on. Then I went downtown to get a haircut and did the river walk. RB and I went to Home Depot later i... Read more

This morning we headed out to our favorite orchard/farmer's market just to see what was available and we had a surprise! We found the most wonderful GA mountain strawberries just coming in to season and as sweet and delicious as you could imagi... Read more
Day 1 at the cabin
Sunday, April 29, 2012      3 comments

We pulled in yesterday afternoon and as usual the 8.5 drive did us in. We went to the local supermarket and made use of their salad bar and a container of home made vegetable soup - we really need to get Publix to do this! We picked up a few t... Read more
Getting closer

Saturday is the designated day to leave for the cabin. As it turns out we can only stay 10 days this time but we will enjoy the time we have and get the cabin ready for the rest of the summer. Hopefully, we'll get back there in a couple of wee... Read more
