Today is yard sale day in the mountains and I am always on the search for a treasure. My big spending today was $2.25. I got a new purse for $1, a silver filigree ring for a $1. and 2 plush Christmas gift bags for .25 - the grand will love the... Read more

This morning RB went down to the river walk with me. Now I do enjoy his company but his legs are much longer than mine and I can't walk quite as fast as he can. For the first trip down the path he made an effort to slow himself down and I was ... Read more
Cleaning up the slope

Our front yard at the cabin is very steep as is the driveway. You sort of have to dig in to balance yourself to climb up. Because we are in the woods and have so many trees we get a fair amount of branches that fall over the winter. This morn... Read more

This morning we had sunshine! I went down and did the river walk back and forth - beautiful. Also rode the bike on the deck and did tons of errands. Pork on the grill tonight with sweet corn and green beans - yummy!... Read more

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

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...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
