Breezy river walk

Wednesday, June 13, 2012      6 comments

I had a super walk this morning. The little town near our cabin maintains a pathway that follows the river for 3/4 of a mile. I went down and back twice for a total of 3 miles. The breeze was coming off the river and the big trees provide amp... Read more

Sun is trying to come out

Monday, June 11, 2012      4 comments

Still rainy in the mountains today but nothing like Pensacola - oh, my what a mess! The sun is trying to come out this afternoon. We did some errands and I bought a tomato plant and a little plant of pickling cukes. I have a couple of w... Read more

Farmers Market

Sunday, June 10, 2012      5 comments

We settled in at the cabin last night and today we went out to the local orchard/farmer's market. I bought tomatoes, summer squash, cukes - the little pickling ones that I eat like popcorn - cabbage, corn on the cob, peaches, etc. We left with... Read more

Today is the day

We've been up early to get everything finished before we leave for the cabin. The bathrooms are cleaned and the floors are vacuumed. The car is almost packed. I have healthy snacks to take with us - apples, cantaloupe, carrots and cucumber sl... Read more

Crazy week

Thursday, June 07, 2012      2 comments

I spent Sunday and Monday nights with my granddaughter getting her off to school while my daughter was in Tallahassee on business. Tuesday afternoon we all spent the afternoon and evening together - hectic but fun. I had doctors appointments... Read more

Restless Night

Monday, June 04, 2012      3 comments

I spent last night at my daughter's home as I had to get the grand off to school today. Although I had a comfortable bed and everything for my comfort I just did not sleep well. I swear I laid awake all night but I must have slept some. It's... Read more

Hurry up and wait....

Thursday, May 31, 2012      3 comments

We are so wanting to leave and go up to the cabin where it is a little cooler and the trees provide so much shade. Our delay is due to an elderly friend having some extensive dental work that we thought would be finished by now. We just ca... Read more

Sunday blessings

Sunday, May 27, 2012      3 comments

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

Finding the dirt

Tuesday, May 22, 2012      4 comments

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

Sunday plans

Sunday, May 20, 2012      6 comments

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

Thursday, May 17, 2012      3 comments

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
