My daughter has accused my blog of looking like Highlights’ “Read with Pictures”. I thought it might be fun to try that.
These are some random thoughts… I’m on vacation anyway!!
I finally convinced Hubby he could take time off from work So we are now on vacation in the North Carolina mountains. We’re staying at a very nice resort Sapphire Valley, an area that is apparently lousy with waterfalls and other gorgeous scenery. The boys want to try fishing (again). Their track record isn’t great. I’ll join in – as far as I’m concerned, fishing’s another excuse for a nap! We’re planning to go out to eat somewhere as a family. The restaurants are kinda pricey. Like most everything else here… I told Nik it was because only old rich people live around here. He agreed; “They’re the only ones who can afford the real estate!”
We’ll try not to feed the bears. while we try to figure out where the gem hunting places are. I found a nice topaz today at the local instant-gratification cheap-o salted-bucket place! We’ll bring home lots more useless rocks.
I’m a sorry soul; I brought my computer along. So I’m an addict, OK? Wanted to work on my Bonanzle stores. Served me right;I kept losing my Internet connection (which I paid for at the resort!) Spent about 45 minutes with 2different nice techies. I brought my Hubby too…. Unfortunately, there’s no tech support for Hubby…
Now that he’s 13, Nik eats everything and anything he can get his hands on. His willingness to try just about anything remotely edible has increased about a thousand-fold. Today he ate a tomato basil mozzarella sandwich… Definitely have a teenager (ie Locust) in the house. At least we won’t be taking any food home!
We’ll be out hiking some trails. The minute it starts to go up-hill significantly, I’m sitting down and having a little snooze
Nik is always on the prowl for wildlife ;some of the wildlife is always on the prowl for him! Mosquito magnet! Hubby just talks to squirrels. Today we found a new/used bookstore. Nik got a book on wildflowers of the Carolinas. How can they charge that kind of for a book that’s only 6 x 4? Between him & Hubby, we acquired 5 more books that, of course, we need like a new hole in the head…
Next thing, I think they’re going to try to convince me to go rafting. Right. As if. They’ll have better luck making me go to the swimming pool… Tomorrow morning the plan is to have bacon (turkey) and eggs (free-range) for breakfast. Hubby has to do all the cooking. So sad….
By the way, I’m one of those people who never send postcards when on vacation. That’s WORK!! Consider this post my “post”card!
