Family on the Mountain

Cabin_May2014 052
This is a photo of last night’s sunset as our day drew to a close and night took off.

It had rained earlier in the day and the air was fresh, clean and crisp –and oh, it is sooo good to be home!

Our plans for the weekend are simple.  Spend time together.

Of course, I brought a couple of projects to work on, but I think machine time is going to be hard to come by because Jason brought his girl friend Jenny up to meet us!

Jason and Jenny

I have really enjoyed meeting her and look forward to a couple more days of fun on the mountain. 

There will be more four-wheeler riding, a drive out to the blue ridge parkway in search of water falls, maybe head over to Grandfather Mountain, and we will finish it off with dinner in Boone tonight.

See what I mean about “doubtful sewing time” today?  That’s okay.  I still may get in an hour or so if I hurry and send this, the kids are still sleeping.

Home style dinner!

Salad, steaks from the grill, baked potatoes, fresh corn --- yummy in our tummies!  I don’t know what it is, but I love to cook and eat up here.  Not so much when I’m home, but up here…it’s about the  food!

Thanks for coming up and spending the weekend with us old folks, you two!

View this morning!  Where is my Blue Ridge??

It rained more during the night --- my mountain now sits covered in fog.  Eerily peaceful, I love mornings like this!

And while the kids are still sleeping, I’m headed to the sewing nook in the basement!

Oh yeah – still have a giveaway going on and you still have a chance to register by leaving me a comment on THAT POST OVER THERE!  Drawing is Tomorrow night.
