A Little Mountain Therapy

Hi everyone!  I want to thank you all so much for your kind visits and thoughts for my family.  My father is still in the hospital; he's currently undergoing physical therapy.  I just spoke with my mom, and she said he's doing well.  It is a very slow process, though, for him to recover his strength and stamina.  By the time he's able to go home, he will have been in the hospital for about a month.

This is the view from where I sat yesterday morning.  Now you can see how the Great Smoky Mountains got their name.  

When I was very young, our family traveled to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, and I asked my parents if the mountains were named after Smokey the Bear.  Does anyone besides me remember Smokey the Bear?  Anyway, my parents thought that was a hoot, and we still laugh about it to this day.

A Fourth of July Table

I don't know about you all, but our town seems to have emptied out.  It seems that everyone is traveling somewhere for the Fourth of July week -- everyone, that is, but us.  :)  My husband says there has been very little traffic to and from work every day, so no complaints there.  Those who have gone to the North Carolina coast may have their trip spoiled by Tropical Storm Arthur, but I hope not.  That happened to us one year, and it was no fun.

We're planning on staying right here for the week, but my husband has taken an extra day's vacation in order to have a four-day weekend.  Woo-hoo!  We'll be going to my in-laws' house for the Fourth, but I set a patriotic tablescape in my "new" kitchen just for fun.

I Forgot One Thing!

Hello, gentle readers and Happy Saturday to you.  Thanks for your responses on my post yesterday on how to clean your windows and glass doors.  But...I forgot to tell you one really important thing about the new method (head slap!)  I forgot to tell you that you're supposed to wet the chamois cloth first rather than using it dry.  The author of A Brit in Tennessee was kind enough to remind me last night that you need to wet the cloth in warm water, wring it out, and then start your cleaning.  Spray with your window cleaner then wipe with a damp chamois cloth.  Thank you, Jo, for your reminder on that!
