meet Charmaine...she's begun dealing with what many women at a certain point in life experiences..
she must go on without her spouse...
she has a wonderful old mountain cabin with two outbuildings (adorable inside & out) and has begun the process of taking steps to put it on the market for sale..
memories...so hard to let go and be brave to open our lives up to unknown changes...
there was fishing (by an employee of a concrete company while his coworkers poured)
since we were in the mountains.....bears...even baby bears on the buildings
music...(sounds and tunes of Puff The Magic Dragon) while we walked the streets
the perfect temps while enjoying the wonderful smell of pine trees
neighbor visiting and taking in her overly invitingly decorated front porch...the inside
an explosion of apple decorations and walled covered photos of the grandchildren at each and every stage of life - very sweet....just like "grandmas house" should be
flowers blooming from unexpected spots...love that
and for Charmaine...a secret desire that she could be "a biker girl"....so when we saw
the saloon...I told her inside...."could be her beer bellied babe waiting"...she didn't go in...
she said she's not that brave yet
enjoy your day....for me??
well,when I got home last night at 9:00p.m....it was still 88 degrees..
I'm staying inside today and watching movies next to the air conditioner....knitting....
it may say Summertime baking outside but I say it's Fall from my familyroom sofa.
see you soon....I'm finishing up a change I made on the giraffe...and knitting a sweater...and a hat...
all at the same time...no wonder I have a hard time getting to 100%....oh well...
you'll forgive me right?
|someone's idea of a mountain home....over the top....|
