There IS a sun up in the sky....

Friday, May 20, 2011

Yesterday started out without rain...wonderful news. It warmed up slowly, finally hitting the low 70's. About 1:00 we loaded up Sadie and headed out on the motorcycle for a couple hour ride. We took a very scenic route through the countryside, several roads were new to both of us.

About 3:30 we stopped at Cracker Barrel in Crossville for a late lunch. We made note of the movie times at the theater in Crossville before heading back home. Sadie really enjoyed herself. We watched her trying to nap while we ate...constantly interrupted by people walking by....important to notice. LOL!

We set Sadie up in the garage, took the carrier off the back of the trike and headed out on the one bike, back to Crossville, to see the movie "Bridesmaids". We both enjoyed it...although it's more of a chick flick than for the boys. While there were definitely a lot of funny scenes (you will NEVER forget the character, Megan - played superbly by Melissa McCarthy, truly reminiscent of Zach Galifianakis's role in The Hangover. There was a lot of underlying truth about women and friendships as well as our insecurities.

Today Stu took his trike to Boswell's HD in Cookeville for his new front tire. He has over 20,000 miles on the original tire...pretty amazing! I did more laundry (why does it seem never to be done), walked the dog, washed her bedding, gave her a bath and pinched my arm when unfolding the folding stool. LOL!

Tonight was a TV night, catching up on old recorded shows like Dancing With the Stars, Modern Family, Happy Endings, and Cougar Town. Tomorrow we're going to try out the West End Cafe for breakfast and then off to Tractor Supply to get a rake, shovel, the gate for our main driveway as well as dog food.

Stu is going to start getting the materials to build the shed on the property that will house the bikes when we are parked there as well as take over for our storage unit. He thinks he can bring it in for about 1/3 of buying a pre-built. I'll be happy at 1/2 the cost...LOL!

We'll be posting more on that in our Fire Lily Base Camp blog....later.

Here are some pictures that you won't see in Sadie's blog...LOL!

You talking to me?

Watching the Animal Planet.

Did it stop raining yet, mom?

Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu


  1. Gotta just love that sunshine. Looking forward to seeing the shed being built. Isn't it great to have a guy who is so handy?

  2. Liked BridesMaids, it was really a cute, entertaining show!

  3. That Sadie is one beautiful young lady..My, I cannot believe how she has grown...I think you two are doing it right...Getting a home base set up that you can go to, with a shed, and a place to build a home...All of this while still traveling the country...Great plan, and well thought out.

  4. That Sasie is such a precious doggie. What an exciting life you are giving to her.

  5. Is the lady you talked about in the movie the one that is in the new sitcom, Mike and Molly? I really like her. I love the Modern Family show too. Stay safe.

  6. Sadie has grown into such a big, beautiful Lady!

  7. Love the Sadie shots. Do you ever see people (kids maybe) try to aggravate Sadie?

  8. Sadie says THANKS everyone!

    Pidge, I've never watched that but did a search and yes, that's the gal. She was SO funny in Bridesmaids.

    Margie, we rarely have had kids around but don't think they could aggravate her. She SO loves anyone and still is too hyper, jumping up and everything. She thinks everyone is her friend. LOL!


We're waiting.....
