Ok, next, Mike's sink after he 'fixed' it...
Notice anything a little off about this picture?? The handles are in the off position but are not in the 'normal' off position. In his defense, the sink does not leak anymore.
I had ordered an outfit from my new favorite catalog (Chadwicks) and was excited that it finally came. It was some leggings and a long shirt/dress thing. It looked really cute in the catalog. I tried it on and Mike asked me if it was a maternity dress!! Not quite the reaction I was going for. Needless to say, it's going back.
I've decided that I need to do something about my lilly white legs. I bought a bottle of Jergen's Natural Glow. It is supposed to enhance my 'natural glow'. I hope I don't end up some gross orange color. If I do, I will not be posting a picture of that.
I was sitting outside on Friday night on my lawn talking to my neighbor and playing with her dog. In doing so, I felt a bump (on the dog, not me). It was a tick. My neighbor proceeds to just rip it off with her bare hands and then squish it to death. I was a bit shocked!!
Mike and I put out some mulch on Saturday and my neighbor's little girl, Kassidy wanted to help. I asked her if people call her Kassie or Kassidy. She said "You can call me Kassie as long as it's Kassie with a 'K'." We said, oh, we were saying Kassie with a 'C'. (funny)! So, she spread mulch and then helped me wash the dogs. Nothing like a little child labor to help you get through your Saturday chores (right Mom and Dad!!).
Finally, I'm obsessed with my Fantasy Baseball team. I check my results as soon as I get home everyday. I can't check at work (which is actually a good thing). Once I've set my line up, I talk about how my team is doing constantly. Mike is not pleased. He said he wished we'd never done it because I'm annoying. How long has he known me?? Shouldn't he know by now that I'm a bit obsessive compulsive!!
That's all...maybe I'll have something interesting for next week...but kinda doubt it.

Anyway, we rode on some really, really nice roads. We rode Hwy 143 in NC and it was Hwy 165 in Tenn. It was a pretty popular road with bikes and fast cars. The scenery was great and would be spectacular in the fall once the leaves have changed. Many of the leaves in the higher elevations had not come in yet. This went through the Nantahala National Forest. There were already some kayakers braving the cold water.
I knew Mike must have wanted to go there because of some dirt roads. And sure enough, we road on some nice dirt roads (except for a few potholes here and there). We needed the practice on dirt roads for our upcoming vacation to Alaska.
We stayed the night in Murphy, NC. The next morning we took Hwy 64 and it again went through the Nantahala National Forest. This too was a nice road and it would also be great when the leaves change colors. We saw some great waterfalls. This road went through Highlands and Cashiers. We turned off 64 onto Hwy 215 and this was really nice also. All in all we had nice weather and got to see some pretty scenery. It was a really nice weekend getaway. I hope to go back in the fall.
Bald River Falls in Tellico Plains, TN.
Hiawassee Dam in NC (our could be GA?) - don't get dizzy looking down. We saw this because we decided to take a side road into Murphy because we were stuck behind some slow traffic. It was a good detour.
View from the top of the dam.
We came across this waterfall on Hwy 64 outside of Highlands, NC.
Dirt road near Indian Boundry Lake in Tenn.
Covered bridge near where we eat lunch at Tellico Beach.
Just picture how nice this would be with the leaves in full color.
