I walked early this morning - it was tolerable because the sun was not yet up and I was back home at 7:30 with 50 minutes of walking done. I've done 40 minutes on the bike. I'm reading "The Help" and finding myself glued to the pages. I w... Read more

The last of our family left the cabin this morning. We had a great visit but never get to do all the things we think we can do in a short time. We had a super day around Chattanooga at Lookout Mountain, Ruby Falls and Rock City. It was a lot ... Read more

My granddaughter had a certificate for free bowling from a summer library program so off the girls went today. Grammie, Mom and Grand had so much fun. We were probably the worst bowlers the place had ever seen but we had the most fun. The gran... Read more

Since it is too hot to be outside for any length of time I am tackling closets. The community we live in up in North Georgia has a yard sale in October and I thought it would be fun to take some stuff up there and see if we can get rid of it. ... Read more

This morning I went out walking at 7 a.m. It was 75 degrees which doesn't sound bad but the humidity had to be way up there and there was not one tiny little breeze the whole 40 minutes I was out there. I am so longing to go back to the cabin ... Read more

All in all I am doing pretty well on my food intake. Lots of fruit and veggies, keeping carbs at each meal around 35-40 grams, limiting salty snacks, etc. Hopefully, I'm getting the blood sugar under control. My exercise slacks off when m... Read more
NOT enjoying the heat

It amazes me how much a difference of 10-12 degrees makes in how you feel. We are back in Florida and I went out early for a walk and got slapped in the face with the humidity. It was nice to see how green everything is so I assume we have bee... Read more

Today is the day we check out the local garage sales and have breakfast out. We both look forward to the hunt for treasures. Not much luck today - I found a wind sock for $1 that will add some color to the patio in Florida and that was it. ... Read more

Our paint job yesterday turned out spectacular. When we bought the cabin last year we just moved our stuff from the other house in NC here and did not do much of anything as there was no time and the inside did not look too bad. But now that w... Read more

This morning I woke up at 5:30 again but rolled over and went right back to sleep. The next thing I knew it was 7:30! Now that is a little late for me but I can adjust and move on with the day. I'm getting ready to paint one of the upsta... Read more

For some strange reason I am waking up at 5 a.m. and cannot go back to sleep. I made myself stay there until 5:30 but I was just getting annoyed so I got up and started the day. It is now 9:15 and I have completed 45 minutes on the treadmi... Read more

This morning I woke up about 5 a.m. and could not go back to sleep. I made a cup of tea and played computer games for half an hour and then I went out on the deck and did the bike ride for 30 minutes (the deer were laying down in the back yard!... Read more
Spacious kitchen in a tiny space
Monday, July 18, 2011      2 comments

My handy husband built 3 drawers inside a cabinet that now stores about 3 times as much as I could put underneath that cabinet before. My tiny little cabin kitchen now has great storage. He is going to put 2 drawers in another much smaller cab... Read more

Today we went in to the city for lunch. It also happens to be our nearest Publix and I do miss that store when we are in the mountains. I'm not sure whether we wanted the lunch or the Publix more but we got to do both. If anyone has ever ... Read more

One of our fun things to do when in the mountains is to check out the local garage sales. This morning we stopped at four places but only found a few treasures at the first one. I bought a set of new Pyrex (5) bowls with covers and a tableclot... Read more
