Enjoying life's adventures in a secluded mountain cabin

Before Dark

We did it!  We finally did it!  Mountain Man and I finally made it home from work before dark today!  That may not sound like much to celebrate to a lot of y’all out there, but I actually got to walk around out in the yard for a few minutes this evening.  I got to see my mountains all around me and breathe in the fresh air.  I got to feel the grass and mud beneath my feet and hear the sounds of nature all around me.

Oh, how I’ve missed doing this.  I don’t get to see the light of day where I work and it’s dark when we leave in the mornings and usually dark when we get home in the afternoons.  It rained here at the cabin all last weekend so I couldn’t get my nature fix then, either.  Getting to walk around the cabin for just a few minutes this evening has been one of the highlights of the last two weeks for me.

What can I say?  It’s the little things in life.

Looking Beyond

 

I think I might’ve mentioned my love of snow once or twice before and I really wish I wasn’t feeling so gash darn lazy today so I could’ve trekked next door to get a better picture of the mountain range to our east.  But, I’m in my nice, comfy, cozy, pink pj’s, enjoying some post season football, and I just really didn’t feel like it.  So, I took this picture from our deck.  It may not be a clear shot to the high peaks far off in the distance, but I think the varying shades from the branches in the foreground add depth and dimension to the photo.  Plus, y’all get a better understanding of what I see when I look out the windows of the cabin everyday.  Mountain Man and I are truly are blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the world.
