Colors from Maggie Valley


Welcome to day two of our "Getaway Gang" vacation to Maggie Valley, NC. Yesterday was actually our first FULL day together since last year... We have had LOTS and LOTS to catch up on ---so you can only imagine the four of us chatting, giggling, chatting and giggling some more. Of course, "quiet me" hasn't gotten a word in edgewise.... Har Har Har...

I won't tell you that we stayed in our night clothes and robes ALL day long --because you wouldn't believe it. And I won't tell you that we have eaten and nibbled most all day ---because you wouldn't believe it either... SO---let me just say that 'life is slow and easy here on the mountain'. We four old women (oops--I mean young girls) are having a wonderful time together.

Here are a few more pictures from Maggie Valley. I took these yesterday morning when the sun was hitting the trees and the Fall colors were sparkling!!! Note those 'Blue Ridge' mountains above!


Here is a pretty view from our deck at the cabin.






I took this picture from our screened-in porch to show you the pretty colors. What I didn't realize was that I showed you that gorgeous picture of the grill cleaner. Didn't I do a great job????? ha


How did I know that they would have a couple of bird feeders here on the deck JUST for me??? It's a good thing I brought some bird feed just in case!!!!!! Yesterday, we saw crows, woodpeckers, cardinals, tufted titmice, chickadees and juncos. They loved that sunflower seed that I brought with me!!!

Hope your week is going well. I'll have to catch up with comments next week. We are just TOO busy up here---working SO hard!!!!!

By the way, please look at George's blog from yesterday... The picture is hilarious!!!! Click HERE .

Hugs,

Keep up the good work ladies in your jammies. With great view, wonderful friends and snacks, who needs to go anywhere but to the porch and back.

Beth said...

Betsy, that is honestly the best picture of a grill cleaner I've ever seen! :-) Ha,ha...just kidding. Your pictures, as always, are gorgeous. And I think you and your buddies have the right idea---a day spent in your jammies, lots of food, and a nice deck with a killer view to sit on. Have a wonderful time, Betsy!

The colors are fantastic and it sounds like you are having a wonderful time. Remember, "Life is not the number of breaths we take, but measured by the moments that take are breath away."

Hi Betsy, you're the only one I know who takes bird seed on vacation;) What a great idea. In the mornings, having coffee on the porch, how fun to watch the local birds come by for a visit.

SmilingSally said...

What a view! I could stare at that for hours, especially in my comfy clothes and a cup of coffee to sip.

That little house bird feeder is precious.

I did take a look at George and thought that face was a little bit dramatic (i.e., fakey). :) Glad all of you are having so much fun. What a great kind of busy.

Tricia said...

Only the BEST of days are spent in jammies:)

Cheryl said...

I must say that I checked George's post yesterday and had to chuckle! And you are the first person I have heard of who takes birdseed on a trip but how very nice that you fed the birds there and in return received some lovely visitors! Good for you all for staying in your pj's all day, I do on many days! Lovely photos.

I grew up with the Blue ridge mountains not far from my house in Culpepper VA. I miss it sometimes, especially in the fall. You are lucky to be there :)

Iowa Gardening Woman said...

That cabin looks like a fantastic place to stay, Betsy. What a fun way to spend a vacation! I can almost hear the four of you together giggling and talking. I'm glad you're having such fun. :)

Fantastic beauty of the mountains. And the colours are just unbelievable.

You mentioned chicadees. We had a song in our elementary days that goes this way:

The chicadee gay little fellow
His featherb.... on the tree

Do you know the song? May I request a copy of the lyrics incase you know?

It's American song I learned at school when I was little.

The little girls did sound having so much fun!

Beautiful colors and great views, the perfect place for a get together of four feisty fillies.
