Cleaning out the flooded basement. No easier way to purge your old crap than to have it soaking wet and smelly! Was able to save some old photos, a couple hiking packs, maybe one camera, Alf, and a vest. The rest I can get copies of or I’ll just keep the memories as long as I can. Now if I can just apply this kind of purge to the rest of my hoarded junk! Thanks 100yr flood! #basement #flood #cleanup #purge #lynchburgva #sorrynotsorry #didntneeditanyway
Okay y’all! Here’s a visual! The Grey Cottage is on a hill, in the woods, a steep incline overlooking the dam/lake/roads. If the dam did break, which I think the worst fear has passed and officials and engineers are saying it’s stable, I’d kind of just get lake front property. But as you can see, my neighbors lower down, out of the woods, have been evacuated. Thanks for the concern, but the Grey Cottage and it’s woodland critters, myself included, should be okay! Send good thought to the neighbors and for sunshine!
Send love... . My mama lost her most bestie frand this Monday. And it so hurts my heart. Eileen was an amazing person. Active in her catholic church, and working in special education her whole life. She moved mountains and changed so many lives. But the one I care the most about is my mom’s life. Eileen had been a part of our lives for as long as I can remember. She traveled with us, never forgot a birthday or Xmas gift, was always laughing and keeping things fun and light, and enjoyed the same things my mom loved, like going to the theatre, antiquing, and craft shows. Or at least she indulged my mom. There was rarely a fantastic story that didn’t involve Eileen. My poor mother has been through so much tragedy in the last few years, and Eileen was always there for her, a glowing and loving friend. Always. I couldn’t thank her enough. . . The last few months my mother was able to repay that loyalty and kindness and love by being there for Eileen and she fought another nasty, and final, battle with cancer. She was there until the end. Eileen’s eyes brightened to see her bestie beside her. Loving and fussing over her. I am thankful I was able to whisper my thanks in her ear, hug her, and that she has passed so peacefully to be beside her gracious God, and finally out of pain and struggle. But she’s left my mother, her bestest most beloved friend, behind. So whatever you do, prayers,send good vibes, send love and light, please send to my sweet mama to help her through yet another close and tragic loss. And to Eileen’s family, who is like my own. She was an amazing person and will be missed. More than she even knew. May we all be so lucky to have such a friendship. . . Your mother is laughing with angels now! ❤️👼
Argiope Spider or “Writing Spider” is one of my most fav spiders of the orb weaver family. Their webs are beautiful and huge, as are the spiders themselves. This one got upset at me being there and started her writing early. As soon as I left she finished her web. This one is definitely female, which are waaay bigger and brighter than the males (naturally). . . These garden spiders are non-toxic to humans, but they will bite if grabbed (defensively only) and it’ll feel like a bee sting. Their venom is not only harmless, but has some amino-acid type toxins that are associated with fast cell regeneration! So perhaps that super-hero spider bite theory has some scientific backing! Shweeett! Anyway, enjoy! . . 🖤🕷🕸🖤 #spider #spiderman #argiope #writingspider #nature #neat #swansboro #nc
Me trying REEAAALL hard to stay positive waiting for the AC fixit guy to come fix the broken unit at the beach. Not how I planned to spend my first day here. Please don’t let this vacation be ruined, too. If we can’t get it fixed, doggos and I have to head out. Too hot. So for now, trying to be positive, drink my kombucha, and watch trash tv until it’s (hopefully) fixed!! #goodvibes #bepositive #hopeful #please #needmyvacation #selfie
This sweet monkey-butt is exhausted from being an excellent and attentive co-pilot on the way to the beach today. Not a biker, pedestrian, construction worker, small car, or cow was allowed to pass without vocalization! He’s a goode boi! Yes he is! #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dogsincars #dogismycopilot #bestfrand #Archie #iflmdog
