But mama, all you’ve done is sit at this sewing machine for days and days!
You are right Sadie Jane ---I have!
And not only are my legs feeling it from treadling, but my arms feeling it from quilt-wrangling!
My back is feeling it from sitting and pedaling the machine for days on end too..it’s not the comfiest chair either.
We need to do something ELSE today, but do you have any suggestions?
It’s a beautiful afternoon, go get on that 4-wheeler and go explore the mountain!
So we did!
The view in front of my handle bars!
We had a couple of errands to run – our trash has to be hauled to the dumpster as there is no weekly personal trash collection at everyone’s place up here. You take your refuse to the big dumpster down the road and up the next a bit. Not a problem! A good reason to get out!
Today temps were chilly enough that I needed a sweatshirt, a light jacket on top of that, and gloves.
I love how the wind bites my cheeks!
I had a tea cup I purchased in London for my friend Jewel, and we have missed each other the last couple times I have been up here. Either she was here and I wasn’t, or I was here and she wasn’t – and she STILL isn’t! They are gone for the weekend so a plan was arranged to leave it in their carport…and we went by 4-wheeler.
After the drop off..we went exploring!
Holy Rock Outcropping!
Belive me, this is bigger in person than it looks in a photo….
Can you find me??
How about now??
This rock formation is MASSIVE!
And I stood there, looking at each ridge and striation –contemplating the millions of years it took for this rock to come to be here. My life is but a speck in the timeline of this rock, this land, this place. Even the trees have likely lived longer than I have and will likely still be here when I’m not.
It was the perfect little break to the day.
Sometimes you just have to stop the sewing and go breathe! Get a change of scenery, a different perspective, stand back, look up and marvel.
