Our life living off the land in our log cabin, breathing fresh mountain air, and getting back to basics.

A Night Out

We are going to see The Liars Bench (an Appalachian variety show, click on the link to find out more about it) at the Western Carolina University Mountain Heritage Center.  It sounds like really great show and I am looking forward to it...this will be our first time for both the show and visiting the Mountain Heritage Center...such an adventure!  I can't wait to tell you all about it!

This photo is from their blog page.

Since we are heading down the mountain and into town, we will also be running various errands and having dinner at Kosta's Family Restaurant in Dillsboro, a favorite of ours (it's reasonably priced, they make Johny's favorite gyro platter, and they uaually have delicious fresh fish specials...yum).

With all that said, the morning's plan was to work a little more on our deck rail.  But Mountain Man realized we needed a bigger clamp than what we had, so he was going to take Big Bear (our ATV) up to Ron's wood shop to see if we could borrow one.  But Bear wouldn't start.  After some investigating, Johny called Charlie to get his expert opinion...end result?...battery (again, it's not the first time this has happened).  So now the battery is charging, and I have no deck rail update. 

But that's OK, because I'm about to get myself dolled up to go to dinner and a show!  Well, dolled up is a relative term...I'll use the curling iron on my hair and use a little hair spray (I usually just brush it and put it in a pony tail or hair clip, I believe my hair is happier for it), put makeup on (rarely use it anymore, I believe my skin is happier for it), jewelry (it usually sits in a painted wooden cup on my dresser, don't want to loose it in the woods or garden), and dress in a casual jean ensemble...love that word, sounds so fancy when you say it with a French accent...including shoes with a heel (something other than a sweatshirt, exercise pants and work boots).  I really enjoy our simple lifestyle, which doesn't require much daily preparation for our daily chores, but I am looking forward to gussying up just a bit!  Which means I am publishing this post early today; stay tuned to tomorrow's post for an update on The Liars Bench.         

Another BTW, thanks for all the well wishes for Pogo.  He is feeling somewhat better and ate a little this morning, but he's still pretty listless.  I'll be really glad when he is back to his normal self!

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,

I do believe that play is happening in our neck of the woods right now too.

I can't wait for your review. Just then maybe I will have to let the pony tail down myself.
