It’s Fall in the Mountains

October 2015

October 2015

I guess at the rate I am posting on our blog it will be winter the next time you hear from me. But for now it is glorious fall in the mountains. The days are cool and the nights are even cooler. We have not had the air on for weeks…so there electric company! We have been hanging out on the deck more and enjoyed a wonderful steak dinner and some wine there on Sunday. Hope you are enjoying yourself wherever you are…blog more soon.

May is awesome!

And of course Murphy had to help me by watching me take the pictures 😍


Spring 2015

Well here we are well into spring. The mornings are still pretty crisp! We have had a lot of rain and it’s been pretty windy at times. We may even see some 80’s the first week of May. If you look closely you can see Murphy enjoying the sun….image

Spring Has Sprung

The trees and flowers are certaintly on overdrive! A few months ago the trees were bare and the flowers were no where to be seen…. what a great day in the mountains. Every season has its’ own beauty.



It’s a Winterwonderland

Well it wasn’t as bitterly cold this time. We hovered at the low 30’s. I know our friends in FL would freeze, but it really isn’t bad. We sure got a lot more snow this time and this morning it is beautiful out.







10 Years Ago Today

Ten years ago today we closed on our mountain home; the Wild Turkey Chalet. It is hard to believe that so much time has passed.  We bought the chalet as a vacation and rental property. Every chance we got we would take off from work and come to the mountains of Murphy. As time passed we decided not to rent the WTC anymore….we wanted to come up when we wanted to. Our time was as short as a weekend and other times as long as 2 weeks. It was never long enough!!! Somewhere along the way we decided that this was the place to retire. So 3 years ago we sold our home in Florida and are now living our retirement years in the Wild Turkey Chalet.

Here’s to many happy and healthy years living in the mountains!
