Back in Florida

Saturday, July 14, 2012      11 comments

I've been thinking about my week here in the sunshine state and how much has been accomplished in such a short time. We attended a wonderful ceremony where our daughter was honored as one of five finalists for Florida teacher of the year. ... Read more

Enjoying the Quiet

The two teens and the mom are gone. While we loved having them 8 days was a little too long. We decided our maximum teen age visit will be 3 days when it includes a friend of the teen. When it is just our grand we can go as long as she is ava... Read more

We have two 13 year olds with us this week. Yesterday they requested a trip to the local Walmart where they spent over an hour in the make up department. One bought nothing - the other spent almost $20.00. Then they spent the afternoon trying... Read more

My favorite place near the cabin to buy produce is a local farm/orchard. Their primary products are peaches in the summer and apples in the fall but they also have fresh veggies of all kinds from their or other local farmer's garden - everythin... Read more

Tired muscles today

Tuesday, June 19, 2012      6 comments

Today I went down to the river walk and did 2 1/2 miles. When I got back home RB decides this is a good day to paint the bedroom! OK, I can do this. Our usual pattern is that he does the cut in work and I roll the walls so we moved all t... Read more

Up, up and up

Today I decided it was time to go up the mountain so I walked up the driveway and took a right and kept on going. One time I tried to count the steps as I walked up and I lost count at 250 so I liken the trek up to the first level area as climb... Read more

Missing my bike on the deck

Sunday, June 17, 2012      3 comments

For some time I've had an old stationary bike I found at a thrift store. I used it when we had our little house in NC and brought it to the cabin and enjoyed it out on the deck last year. Last Fall I found a much newer and nicer bike and a tre... Read more

Picking up the pace

Yesterday it took me 65 minutes to do the 3 mile river walk. Today I did it in 60 without pushing too hard. I'm going to try and maintain 60 for the rest of this week and aim for 55 minutes next week, maintain that for two weeks and see where ... Read more

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

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

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

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
