bring on the wind

The wind has not always been my friend.  It chills me in the winter and blows up dust in the summer.  But I believe that I have finally made peace with the breezes that come into my life now - thanks to my new windchime!

This handmade (and Made in USA) chime was a birthday gift from my husband.  We mounted it in a spot that sure to catch some air, and it's easy to 'ring' it as you walk onto the porch, too.

I spend many hours sitting on the side porch and this chime adds alot to our enjoyment.




 
I decided to get my husband a windy gift for his birthday too. . . a tower fan with 3 speeds and a BREEZE setting.


Together, we are making the most of the wind:)

smoky grill


What luck! my husband recently won this huge grill in a drawing.  He came home (from a technical training session)  with a sparkle in his eye.

Or should I say 'spark'?





It took a few days to get the monster grill delivered, but we are so excited to get it set up and cooking.

This grill has a covered grate, a large smoker, and a side burner.  I really can't wait to have some friends over and christen the new cooker.  So, maybe it's not ideal season for a cookout but I think we'll suffer through it:)

recover my health

After several rounds of yucky antibiotics and various meds, I'm well on my way to a full recovery.  What started as an annoying sinus infection, turned to bronchitis.  Once that battle was won, I thouht I was in the clear.

But then the UTI hit me like a brick in the head!  That particular condition comes with it's own problems.

It's surprising how long these common infections can linger . . . it's been months!

I now feel back to my old self and will be posting more on my beloved blog: Edge of the Wildwood.

122 miles on one gallon of gas

Yep, it's a scooter!  well, one scooter is fine, but two is fantastic. 




 When I visited my family this summer, we took a few jaunts on the matching motorized bikes.



We traveled along the shady lanes and quiet back streets.  We made alot of stops, to take in a view or chat with a neighbor.  It's very liberating and fun in a 'w-e-e-e-e-e-e' kinda way



If you ever get the chance to ride a scooter, you should really try it.





Anytime there's a nice break in the weather, it's scooter -time:)

we wuv wood wick



I'm a sucker for a candle!  When I saw the new wood wick candles in the stores, I just had to have.  Got one for sis, too.
Wood wick candles last a good long time (in my experience) and they give off a soft crackling sound:)









Same brand, different scent - but the candle I used was really active on the crackling noise.  The one sister used, not so much.


I tried to record the sounds on video with my digital camera, but cannot figure out how to upload the vid.  You'll have to trust me it was not somethng you can ignore.

I'll be getting more wood wick in the future, and enjoy the lovely scents and sounds.
