It's all over but the crying. We packed up the cabin on Day 9, and left to go to Cornelius, NC. Cornelius is just outside Charlotte, NC, and is where my sister, Elizabeth and the other Krajniks live. The sentimental reason? Why, The FIFA World Cup Final, of course. Technically, we had one more hour until we had to check-out at 10:00 a.m., but it's two hours to Cornelius, and the game started at 11:00 a.m. You do the math. I fell 💤 asleep the moment I got in the F-150. When … [Read more...] about Home again, Home again…

John, Greyson, Matthew, Ben, Cali and Stella went white-water kayaking yesterday. You know what I’m gonna say. I don’t do white-water anything, much less kayaking. I can only imagine the amount of time I would have spent upside down under the kayak, trying to not drown as river water...I’m sorry...mountain spring water...slowly but surely filled my lungs to the bursting point, until water, but pure mountain spring water mind you, poured from my, ears, nose, and mouth like I was a freshly … [Read more...] about Jacuzzis Are Dangerous When You’re Fat – Black Mountains Day 7
Chopped liver gets a bad rap. Believe it or not there are lots of people who think it's absolutely delightful. Not so, my sister-in-law. According to Gail, my failing to ask her and my brother, Frankie, plus other Batsons to our annual family reunion in the mountains had everything to do with that deli meat and their resemblance to said occasionally coveted, but more often than not, maligned, piece of offal than the fact that they have, in fact, never, ever been invited to the annual … [Read more...] about Chopped liver and Black Mountain Day 5
Black Mt. and The Blue Ridge Mts. I didn't write for two days because The Krajniks and The Poutases went hiking yesterday, and it rained all day the day before so nothing overtly crazy happened. I'm sorry: all the Poutases went hiking but me. I don't do hiking. Instead, I stayed in bed until 4:00 p.m. Okay, I admit it, I'm a bad daughter and grandmother because: Dad was home as was the Masters family and I could have spent time with him or my grandchildren and … [Read more...] about Black Mountain Cabin Day 4
In my Happy 5th of July!, post, I put in a picture of Tsuki in which, I thought at the time, there was a bird on her back. I even commented on it, and said that Margie apparently even did bird-sitting. It was, in reality, a four-pound dog. A friend of mine (and later, Margie), alerted me to the error of my ways. My friend sent me the "laughing so hard I'm crying" emoji. Nice. In my defense: I was given the picture via text on my iPhone 8, and it's a small … [Read more...] about Black Mountain Cabin Day 1
I don't know what a picture of Tsuki with a bird on her back has to do with anything, but I got it from the dog sitter today and thought it was funny, sooo... Of course, now Margie and her daughters, the dog sitters at My Other Mommy, Inc want a plug for their business since I mentioned them the other day, so here you go cuz I love ya, Margie. So if you're ever going to be in South Florida and need a dog, cat, or, apparently, bird sitter, look them up. I, myself, was feeling … [Read more...] about Happy 5th of July!
