Brand spankin’ new week
Goodbye to the three-day weekend – but oh, how I enjoyed it’s stay! It brought much cooler temps and beautiful skies – a chance to rest as well as the opportunity to get some things done.
A day-trip to the mountains was just what the doctor ordered. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, and the crowds were even manageable. After miles of hiking on some not-so-desirable terrain, we could both probably use the care of a doctor. The statement “we’re sore” doesn’t quite describe the magnitude of the pain. Until today, I’ve never had trouble at all getting down my stairs. I had to laugh at myself this morning and hope no one was looking as I stepped sideways down the steps in an attempt to minimize the strain.
What amazed me about Sunday was the visibility factor. One worker pointed out two mountains in the distance that are ‘local’ to us – Kings Mountain and Crowders Mountain. Those mountains were now approximately 75 miles away, and we could still make out their silhouettes perfectly. Amazing!
Now if you’ll excuse me… I’m off to see how long I’m able to break the rules by donning my white threads after Labor Day.
If you were looking South, you may have seen us. 🙂 We hit the mountains too this weekend. So nice, huh? I’m already planning hooky days for next week.

Yes, it was wonderful to escape even for a day trip! Glad you guys had a getaway too. This talk of hooky may inspire me to do the same thing! 🙂

Miles of hiking… This is inspiring, Bonnie. I spend way too much time sitting in front of my computer. Thank you for sharing.

Glad it provided some inspiration Carol Ann. I’m the same way though… way too much time behind my computer. When I DO get out and about and get exercise, that’s why I’m almost bedridden for 2 days. 😀
