This is the face of a happy girl who is ready to head up to the cabin and spend a few days playing in the mountains.
And taking naps.
Lots of naps!
I have quite a few nap cards to redeem myself…when WAS my last blissful uninterupted nap where I woke up on my own, not with an alarm clock?
I’m over due!
We headed out and were done with post office run and bank run by 10am ---leaving only a grocery run as we entered Wilkesboro by 11:30am…..
((Why is it that nothing makes me hungrier than the smell of rotisserie chickens in the deli department, especially at lunch time??
The view from the front porch upon our arrival!
Groceries were quickly put away, and lunch was soon consumed….all the while Sadie Jane watched clouds form into dream shapes from her vantage point on the front porch:
Yeah. Guard Dog. Ha!
Oh, this felt so good!
However I was reminded quickly of how buggy the mountains of North Carolina are ---No bugs in Ketchikan, no bugs in Buffalo ---a couple swarms of midges in Sault Ste Marie, MI ---but here? HOLY BUZZING THINGS! I guess we need a good hard frost to put an end to that stuff, and I’m not ready for it to be that cold yet. Here on the porch it was a wonderful 75 degrees!
Treadle power ---
This good old girl got quite the workout this afternoon!
There is a bit of color happening up here ---
But nothing like what I saw up in northern Michigan! Not a lot of maple trees here so we don’t get a lot of the reds, usually some golds and oranges ---that is if a rain storm doesn’t take it all down to the ground before we even get to enjoy it. I think we are still a couple weeks early yet for real fall color here.
You can see the yellow happening!
And Sadie saying…..why are you stopping to take another photo?? I’ve got some more walking to do and more things to sniff!
Color at the end of my road ---
It definitely feels like fall is around the bend – these warm temps we have won’t last forever so I am glad that I spent time outside on the porch today!
What we lack in colorful foliage, we make up for in Sunsets:
Beautiful, isn’t it?
Plans for this evening include burgers on the grill, and some binding being hand stitched down while we veg out to the TV. Jammies. Feet up in my comfy chair. Covered with a quilt and binding away ---Perfect.
Have a great Thursday Eve, everyone!
