I used to shuck peas with my Grandma on the porch too. I also found that to be a relaxing task..It has been wetter here then usual which is making it humid..We are not used to that.
I have bee raking up pine needles in the morning after work. 23461 steps so far today .We had 96 pine tree this project should keep me busy for a while. I don't intend to give up my pool dates so will only be at it 2-3 times a week. I guess they aren't going anywhere HAHAHA

Hard decision, if you did tell owner early about it, then in the back of his mind what would he think of you. Better to just stay out of it, been there but different situation.

Good weekend, to dry to mow Saturday, so just set out in back yard and broke green beans. I remember growing up, we didn't have air and it was hot, but we set in the shade when we were not baling hay or cutting tobacco, we would break green beans outside. I set outside by myself Saturday as it was too hot for everyone else, but there was a great breeze and it felt good.

Came in later to discover I had to drive back up to Louisville to eat, was not happy about having to leave out again. Just wanted to set back and relax.

Weather this week supposed to be cooler, we had a storm come through yesterday, left a .03 inch of rain.

Have a blessed day

Last night at 9:30 the relief cook calls camp and quits.
The owner comes over to the cabin very angry with me, somehow this is my fault.
He just demands I am cooking today, and he is not replacing her.

I knew she was quitting but had promised the person who told me that I would not say anything. I was prepared to cook today assuming she just wouldn't show up like two weeks ago.

What to do? Tell the owner three days ago that I had heard she was quitting or keep the confidence of the person who had told me?

Today the owner figured out I knew in advance and asked me about it? I said I did hear rumours... then he was upset I didn't give him notice..


Well I cooked today on my day off...
was able to talk to the owner a little ... he seems a little more calmer..
But still there are issues!

When he came over last night .. he said I would be happy she quit... I was struggling with her.. she was stealing from camp ... I know it without a doubt but can't prove it. I told the owner several times but he didn't believe me.
It was also so stressful when I was off and to come back to work because she would use ingredients up in a day that I would use for several meals.
She was used to cooking for fancy high class clients... we are a camp with a much lower budget. She couldn't understand that or just outright defied my suggestions on what to use.
Either way.. I am so happy she is gone. However I need time off... How is this going to happen?

Well we see what the next few days bring about.

Sounds like everyone is staying busy. I have been getting out in the yard right after work and pulling tumble weeds all of a sudden they are all along the fence line Best to rip them up now before the grown and blow dropping more seed. Some of them are getting thorny. Next I am going to rake up the pine needles The pine trees are beautiful but really messy . My slash pile is getting huge hopefully we will get a good rain soon and we will be able to safely burn it .
been averaging around 15k steps :)
Have a great week

Sounds like Marty you are the best cook. The Power of Attorney, be glad you have your brothers to help, my mother is in Nursing Home and I have to handle things by myself, glad I can pray about those things.

A humid walk this morning, but still enjoyable, got in 10,000 + steps on my walk, finished yesterday with 16342 steps, 9.3 miles.
Got my wild kids tonight, boys and girls in VBS but they not really wild, they good kids.
My last Kids Camp of the year is next week, and the paper work and last minute registration is wearing me out. Be glad when the Kids Camp starts so I have to deal with is kids.

This day certainly ought to go down in the books.
This morning I was called into the office... would I be interested in cooking for a wedding?
His friends and neighbor wants to have their reception here at camp and for me to cook for it.
This is not part of my salary... it is for next June... so I guess this means I still have a job next year.... and it is on a Saturday... not asking our relief chef to do it...

Then just before lunch the nursing home, phoned me. Asked about funeral arrangements for my mother, nothing is on file... this created a flurry of phone calls to Kingston Ontario.. where she will buried when that time comes. But legally no one has power of attorney.. so no one will talk with me.
So phone calls to a lawyer... I made arrangements for a lawyer to go visit my Mom tomorrow to discuss a new will and giving my brother and I powers of attorney. Then it was phone calls to my mother helping her understand why a lawyer was coming to see her.. Then a phone call to my brother in Kingston to explain this all to him.

Meanwhile I was cooking 300 grill cheese sandwiches....

Afternoon... food order had to be organized and sent in... and I had to order the food for the wedding I'm doing this Saturday.

So the Day is done...

I have had a lazy day. After work I went to the pool with my friend it is a nice break for a few hours It is still 94* outside so it is so hot for walking by the time I get in from work . I just do what I have too. Tomorrow is errands day.
Hoping the roofer will stop by and maybe get this project started we have hail and wind damage and need a new roof. It is monsoon season here and there are thunderstorms around every day . A roof would be good before we get a good storm LOL

Had a great walk, it was humid walk though, walked 73 minutes and ended up with 7 miles, that's hard to believe, but that is what my Health app had.

Getting ready for another Kids Camp next week, running me already this week getting everything done, paperwork and classroom work. The VBS this Wednesday, but got that ready to go. Busy week.

Have a blessed day

amazing views

the picture does not do justice to the steepness of this hike







she found it



then we came back down to the lake level

So before I could leave.. the Camp owner phone me, the relief cook didn't show up. Chaos but they managed to get breakfast served with some phone instructions from me. I then returned to Camp and cooked and served supper and prepared the supper, gave clear concise instructions on how to heat and serve it. Then at 1 in the dead heat of this gorgeous day my friend and I hiked and geocache.

I'm at 90 floors elevation and just over 20,000 steps in for my day of rest...

Good morning, it's 8 Am here where I am. In half an hour from now I'm going geocaching with a friend. The caches are up a mountain side. I will gain elevation, not sure of the actual step count as the distance is not great, but so steep..
Well off I go ... hopefully I can find the cache.

A great walk this morning, some clouds in the area and a chance of rain this afternoon. Walked without my walking buddy this morning, he has gone camping and fishing with some of his buddies, he will be gone a week.

Was going to try my bike out this morning but it was just to busy, kids everywhere and I need to air up tires and oil it so may work on that today and try in the morning, needed my good walk this morning anyway.

Have a blessed day

Got in a good walk this morning, 51 degrees, we are in September weather. Yesterday I finished with 22500 steps - 12.3 miles. Added a walk at lunch and went home and mowed last night. My feet were a little sore this morning when I started.

Have a blessed day

Glad you were safe. There have bee storms n our are too. The say go into the lowest levels in an interior room away from windows HA that would be our bedroom closet Our hose is passive solar so there are windows every where on east and west side .The winds get bad here at time and I am hearing the words tornadic winds more often. It never used to be a thing.
Today is going to be a pool day for me :) It is 66* now but will head for the 90's as soon as the sun comes over the mountains
Have a great day

We had to go to the basement for about 15 minutes as sirens were sounding off, that tornado was about 7 miles north of us but never came down, we never had it bad with that one, no strong winds or bad rains. It calms down and we think it is over. About 2 hours later the little tail end of this thing comes through and oh my, it was rough, winds and rains, no tornado's or hail just wind and rain.

Wanted to mow Saturday but yard was to wet. Yesterday though the weather was great, mid 70's for the highs, cool breeze, great time to set out in the yard. Today is so nice too, cool 57 for morning walk, highs in the mid 70's again. Going to try and mow tonight when I get home.

Have a blessed day

Hope you made out okay in the storm. I heard it got pretty hairy down there for a while .
We had a front come through and it was much cooler today . Little bit of rain this evening . Not enough.
Got over 5 miles on the pedometer today. Not bad since I went to the pool with my friends for a few hours.
Had the first farmers market in town today. There were some yummy things.Next week I hope to have eggs to take. Depends on how many people stop by to get them .
My poochie is improving. That makes me very happy . He is able to stand to go potty now and he even walks like a little robot dog.
Be Blessed !

Cindy is meeting up with the storm that was out your way, they saying things may get wild, it was clear this morning, but clouding up now, they were saying last night possible tornado's. But radar does not look that bad, looks like it will come through and clear off again. Just wish Cindy had stay on her cruise out in the ocean...lol.

Did get a really good walk in this morning. Hope to at lunch but does not look like it. Didn't get it yesterday at lunch either, 10 minutes before lunch and the storm hit, guess better than being caught in the middle of it walking

I always try to make friends with critters. My parents would see me coming with something that strayed when I was a kid. They would yell we don't want to hear the story take it back HAHAHAHA
He seems to be unimproved today. I am still praying and having faith the meds will kick in and he will improve . It will be a terrible decision to make because he is so alert and so sweet.

Yesterday our new refrigerator was delivered. Got a lot of steps moving all the cold stuff to the garage fridge then back in the house later on It was 107* 17493 steps. It was still 95* when we went to bed .Supposed to be more of the same today .
Hope Cindy is kind and passes through with out dumping too much damaging rains

Sorry about your dog, they are such great little friends, I use to have a dog and 2 cats, all have died now, rest of family don't want anymore, so I make friends with the neighbors dog. He barks at the rest of the family but comes to me just wagging his tail. I had another friend that had a dog that would not have anything to do with me, I made friends by letting him lick peanut butter off my fingers, we're pals now.

Good morning walk, Cindy coming in this morning with her rain. I know we need the rain but i hope it 's not heavy and last very long, Cindy's visit needs to be short. Time to go home Cindy...lol

Have a blessed day.

Had to take my dog to the vet this afternoon. He jumped off the bed on Sunday night and hurt himself. It has gotten to the point where he is not able to walk or stand on his back legs. The vet is hoping to treat it with steroids and a muscle relaxer. I am hoping it works too. He is only 9 and he is the sweetest little guy.
We are having a big thunder storm now It has cooled down to 75* but it was triple digits again today
Stay safe !

I heard about the major heat wave out west. Stay hydrated
We are getting ready to get left overs of Hurricane Cindy. Heard on radio this morning that gulf coast has been getting rain for last 3 weeks and they cannot handle anymore. All beaches on gulf coast are closed down. I hope and pray our rains are not heavy. It is supposed to cool way off after that, highs in the mid 70's.

Got a great walk in this morning. 61 degrees and a great sunrise.

Have a blessed day

We had an okay walk yesterday. It was hot though and the path was in the full sun.I was disappointed about that for sure. It was 89* up there and 107* down here. between the walk and chores I got 16041 step on my pedometer. I will take it. Not sure what we are going to do today but whatever it is we will have the heat again

Big storms this morning, had to go to Walmart to walk, made a new walking friend for today anyway, we both are normally outdoor walkers but his trails are different from mine, make walk his trail with him sometime. Anyway enjoyed the walk. Did get an outdoor 1.5 mile walk in after the rain. Got a total of 80 minutes walking in so far.

Thanks . I am so glad it is Friday in my world.
Tomorrow is Hubby's birthday I think we are going to take the dogs up to the mountains for a walk along the river. We really can't hike to much with the older ones anymore. They want to go ,But we hate to see them limping afterwards . The puppy could of course run for days.
It is triple digit heat here. I think summer is upon us for sure .I only got in 4.5 miles today. Guess that isn't so bad
I love the way it smells after a big storm . So clean and fresh .

Another good walk today, my buddy did not show up again.

Had some storms come through late yesterday but we were on tail end so just wind and sprinkles, an awesome sunset though after storms. Everything just seemed to glow, an awesome sense of peace, a cool breeze. Told my wife it felt like being in the presence of God.

Sounds like a great walk .I love to walk early in the morning. I start so early though I never get to do that anymore. Yesterday was a small step day for me 8K I went to lunch with the girls and we sat by the river and enjoyed the sounds. It is a treat for us here because there isn't much water around
Today is my Friday YIPPIE

Great pictures, especially the one along the river, love those types of walks.
Walk outside this morning, did not seem as humid but still warm, 69 at 6 a.m. My buddy did not walk today. Maybe too warm for him at his age.

Feather hunting as I walked, found a big hawk feather yesterday, and a blackbird feather this morning, checked my wood bee boxes I have out on my walk, just put them out in a friend's garden I walk by, no bees yet. Seen several honey and bumble bees at work this morning though.

It is already 96 * outside. Wind is supposed to pick up later it will be like a convection oven out there.I try hard to get everything done early or after the sun starts to set .

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Friday.. oh boy oh boy I'm happy about that. I'm off the weekend and Noni and I returned to our condo. Rode our bikes to the sushi restaurant.. refrained from ordering to much this time.. I always over order... I'm full but not stuffed ...
unfortunately Fitbit doesn't recognize my ride.. but I'm happy with the step count and mileage.

Well next week is our staff party.. when I first started I cooked this... then the owner decided to give me a break and he orders food from local restaurants..
My big mouth .... he was going to order pulled pork ... I mentioned I had pulled pork on the menu Tuesday... I could change it... then he realized pulled pork was nothing really special for the staff and everyone really likes mine. I had causally mentioned .. my big mouth... pay me extra and let me cater the staff party... nothing said... an hour later when I was in my cabin he sends me a message he wants to talk about the staff party can we chat.....
Well I went over to the office... They want me to cook for the staff party and he will pay me extra.
Rough menu ... BBQ steak, lobster, shrimp, corn on the cob ... Salads ... and can Noni make Sushi and some other special vegan meals.. total staff number is 25 to 30 people.
I will like the extra money for sure... the issue more so is attitude.. if drama at camp stays high and I'm so stressed I don't want to go all out and wow the staff, .... i guess I need to keep my feelings out of it and be professional.

Oh I'm not finished... my other parttme winter job... called me .. a client has booked the facility for a wedding in July . But has no cook and can't find one.. am I off? Would I do the wedding...?
Well I'm off... will I do a wedding for 60 people?
I have told them two or three times I'm not interested in cooking weddings... to much extra stress... everything has to be perfect .. this is a day that is remembered forever... if something goes wrong... You understand why I would be stressed..

Well I caved... I agreed to cook this wedding... I have a gut feeling it won't be my last...
They also want a BBQ .. BBQ chicken, maybe a roast beef , veggies.. a full sit down menu buffet style. And of course the bride is vegan and wants a vegan choice as well. Noni probably will have to make a vegan cake and I'll buy other deserts.

Meanwhile I worry about Mom and my Dalhousie who has his birthday tomorrow... Saturday 14 years old... been at my side all his life since six weeks old... we been through so much together.

I had to put my mother in a home a couple of years ago, she is so much better off. I do see her mental state declining some though.

Had a busy week with Kids camps, have had fun but wore me out as well. Got in 20500 steps yesterday and averaged 18000 a day for he week. Taking it easy today.

Have a blessed weekend

It's been a crazy week... last Thursday I visited Mom.. found out she was back in hospital... nurses informed Noni and i that she was declining and I should talk to her doctor. Talking more with the nurses they felt she would not last very long at all.. later that night the doctor phoned me.. he thinks two or three months ... maybe longer..
so every night we been going to visit her after work.
She seems to be improving...
work has been stressful as well... yesterday we fed 240 campers... every other day it was 121 hungry mouths. Also I suspect my relief cook to be stealing food ... I talked to the owner ...
we won't mention the stressful relationship I have with the kitchen coordinator...

. Seen while driving home from a visit with Mom

. I have been having little camp fires behind our cabin to release stress.

we bought a lawn chair.. our swing was broken over the winter.. thenowner says he will replace it.. in the mean time I can't wait I want to relax outside on my afternoon coffee break

I was able to get some weeding done in the front garden today. I also raked out there. We had a big thunderstorm blow through last night and the winds tore everything up.
My say I walk a little over 18 K steps on my yard adventures so that is a good thing . Very hot again today . Guess Summer is finally here :)
Glad camp is running smoothly:)

That is a lot of steps, most I have had has been 25000.

Had a lot of rain Saturday, lots of wind, several tree limbs down. Monday went out on the 4 wheeler with Grandson and family, went to creek to fish, had a great day.

Back to work, busy week for the next several, getting ready for kids camps.

Have a blessed day.
