What I’ve Been Doing

My sister, a friend and I had a nice trip to North Carolina… to Cherokee…

 

The ride seemed forever because we took a straight route to Cherokee… not going through Pidgeon Forge or Gatlinburg, TN… and over the Smoky Mountains…

The scenery was awesome as usual…

WE had a free room that accommodated all 3 of us nicely…

WE talked a lot…

about Nothing and Everything…

Very peaceful… and easy…

We went to Gatlinburg over the mountain one day…

We shopped a few stores getting small gifts for a few people…

Getting our favorite donuts at the Donut Friar…

A pillow looking light pastry full of cream for my sister…

and my favorite…

A Sugared Cinnamon Cake one which I think is the best!…

WE had tried to go to their lovely pool where we were staying…

but, rain would come in at inopportune times…

Another time I guess…

The Pigeon River runs through the hills…

even through the grounds at the Hotel we stayed at…

“Peter’s Pancakes” is the best for breakfast…

and we ate there two days in a row…

This was the first time I drove all the way there and back…

I was quite proud of myself…

I am learning to do a variety of things…

Changing oil, filter, checking brakes and getting tire fixed that found a screw in my drive-way…

I’ve painted several things…

the shed door being my proud moment…

My flowers have come on so pretty…

I have an enormous plant/tree in my front yard by my shrubs…

the came up on its own last year…

and even after cutting down to ground…

came up in a vengeance this year…

Now taller that my house…with the biggest leaves I’ve ever seen…

My neighbors and I visit every day…

So thankful for them…

we swap goodies… grass cutting… flowers…

whatever each other might want or need…

My grass continues to be cut by a neighbor we really got to know when my Bobby got sick with his cancer…

He continues to help me now with anything I have a problem with…

A Super Friend!…

My kitty Jill has become almost glued to me…

laying on my chest whenever I try to take a nap or go to bed…

She continues to take care of me as well as my friends and family…

Licking my chin with her sandpaper tongue…

touching my face with her paw…

My boys are still here when I need them…

The best!…

Decided on not going on vacation…

Our Family Vacation to the beach…

My daughter-in-law’s Mother wasn’t going…

My oldest Granddaughter couldn’t find a dog sitter…

and I actually think my mind wasn’t in it with out my Bobby…

I am doing fine…

but, some things continue to bring a few tears…

That’s OK!…

good memories running down my cheeks…
