The rain cleared up yesterday, leaving us with some cold and crisp sunshine!
After you’ve been sewing for hours and hours, it’s a good idea to clear out the bobbin lint that had accumulated in our brains, shake off the remants of dog ears and thread tails and head outside for some fresh air.
Our Buck Mountain waterfall is one of my favorite places on the planet.
I don’t know if you remember – that is if you’ve been reading me for a couple of years –that we had a major flooding happen during a month of continual rain in the summer of 2013, and the waterfall ran rampant, the creek it feeds into flooding and washing out the road. They had to do a major build up of the area to fix the road, prevent future issues like this, and reclaim our space around the waterfall because it had all washed away.
It’s now BETTER than ever! There are Adirondack chairs for sitting and enjoying and contemplation. There are a couple of picnic tables, and walking paths. On the other side of the falls are more chairs for viewing, and a hiking trail that goes up to the top.
It was really fun to take Lori and Randy to see my favorite spots on Buck Mountain!
a “groupie” not a “selfie!”
The gazebos at the pond.
Two friends in puffy jackets! It’s cold!
Being up here makes me HAPPY!
Today things are almost domestic around here. I’ve showered, I’ve put some things away. The furnace guy is coming to do a check out of the system. We use the gas fireplaces for heating, and the furnace is only supposed to go on when the temps reach a certain low when no one is here. It’s not going on. We need to know why it is NOT going on, and what is going on there.
Other than that…it’s 28 degrees out, cold and crisp. We are staying in to sew!
Love from Buck Mountain!
