Rain, rain go away!

Tuesday, June 18, 2013      5 comments

OK, so much for my mountain hikes this week! I do have a treadmill in the basement here at the cabin and I'll need to use it today but I so much prefer being outside - it's why we come to the mountains! ... Read more

Change of plans

Monday, June 17, 2013      4 comments

This morning's plan was a hike up the mountain and then a half hour on the bike out on the deck but torrential thunderstorms changed those plans. I've finished 40 minutes on the bike and am now cleaning up the cabin for the week. Next will be ... Read more

It's so quiet...

Saturday, June 15, 2013      6 comments

This was our first morning without the grand - so quiet - it will take some getting used to. We went down and did the river walk, had some breakfast, hit a few yard sales, stopped at Lowe's and then Wal-Mart. I did the bike on the deck 20 minu... Read more

Last day with the grand

Friday, June 14, 2013      4 comments

Today we are meeting our daughter a couple of hours away so she can pick up the grand. The week went by so fast - so much more we wanted to do. Gem mining was a bust as the place was closed so we came back to the cabin and played games. She b... Read more

Shopping day

Thursday, June 13, 2013      5 comments

Yesterday was shopping day with the grand. I swear that girl may become a professional shopper - she could look all day! While she had snoozed late in the morning I had gone down and walked by the river for 45 minutes and did 30 minutes on the... Read more

Making memories

Wednesday, June 12, 2013      6 comments

My 14 year old granddaughter (the budding film maker) went down to the duck pond yesterday to feed the - you guessed it - geese! We do have two ducks but there are about 25 geese that call the pond home. We brought popcorn as that seems to be ... Read more

Another rainy morning

Tuesday, June 11, 2013      6 comments

We woke again to pounding rain this morning - no wonder things are looking so lush and green here. I got the decks scrubbed yesterday and moved my stationary bike out onto the back deck. The deck is high so it feels like you are riding in the ... Read more

Made it to the cabin

Monday, June 10, 2013      7 comments

Yesterday was a long drive but we made it safe and sound to our little cabin in the mountains. Everything is so green - lots of rain here. The trees are lush and full and we had a welcoming committee of four deer strolling across the front yar... Read more

Getting ready

Saturday, June 08, 2013      7 comments

Today we are cleaning house, doing laundry and packing up to go to the cabin tomorrow. This will be a 3 week trip and the grand will be spending the first week with us. We have a super farmer's market near there and I can't wait to get there a... Read more

Clean out the fridge breakfast skillet

Friday, June 07, 2013      8 comments

We're getting ready to go to the cabin this weekend - finally! And that means emptying the fridge. I don't have to take it down to nothing as our son will be staying here off and on and he'll eat anything I leave. For this morning's break... Read more

Minor guilt trip

Thursday, June 06, 2013      6 comments

It is pouring rain and we are under a tornado watch. No way I can go out and walk this morning. The problem is my brain says it is morning and the routine is: make a cup of tea, take your pills and a eat a half of a banana and then go for a w... Read more

Lunch with friends

Wednesday, June 05, 2013      6 comments

Today I am meeting friends for lunch at a new restaurant - actually it is a local country club and I have no idea what they have for lunch. I will make wise choices and enter them in the tracker as soon as I get home. If you are inclined ... Read more

Missing steps....

Monday, June 03, 2013      3 comments

Yesterday we painted the grand's bedroom: walls, doors, trim, cleaned the carpet and then put all the furniture back, made the bed, hung the paintings, etc. I think I went up and down the stairs at least 25 times and the only time I sat down a... Read more

Off to the grand's

Saturday, June 01, 2013      4 comments

We're going over to help paint her room today. Actually this afternoon will be to move out the furniture and prep the walls. We are waiting until after lunch as last night was the 8th grade formal dance so we thought she might want to sleep in... Read more

Painting done

Friday, May 31, 2013      7 comments

Finished painting the pantry today and I keep walking by to admire how good it looks. I cleaned out the spices and threw away so many that were really far out of date. I wish they would sell them in smaller sizes for two reasons: I hate throw... Read more
