This is the vew of my beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains this morning.
We headed up to the mountains yesterday afternoon around 4pm ---and you should have seen how excited Sadie was to go for this car ride.
She knows when bags go in the car and the cooler goes in the back that we are headed to her favorite place, as well as mine.
We are mountain girls, the two of us, and there are trails waiting to be explored, and woods to walk through, and smells to smell ---
It was too late for a hike by the time dinner was done. We did a walk up and down our road in the near darkness….
Blue Ridge Mountains by the glow of the citronella candle!
Just rocking on the front porch as the night got darker brought about such a comforting peace!
No stitching happened last night. It was barely all I could do to keep my eyes open. I actually sat there in front of the TV in some kind of dazed stupor watching a couple episodes of Leverage on Netflix. LOVE that show! Such fun and quirky characters and the plots are so intriguing. Check it out if you haven’t had a chance.
After a good long sleep, we were up and ready to go with the sun this morning.
Hiking boots on!
Yes, I was in such a hurry to get here that I forgot to pack my running shoes. Note to self. LEAVE a pair up here!
Hiking boots and roll up capris may not be the best fashion statement, but we don’t care!
Sadie in her element!
You can feel the seasons getting ready to change. The morning was blissfully cool, but it is headed up to 90 today and I know I’ll be holing up in the basement sewing nook to the hum of my machine.
