Breathing Room

This has been a long stretch of crazy for our family!  We were not yet recovered from the springtime trip to Texas when my dear Uncle Jim had a stroke at his apartment in California in early May.

Uncle Jim and me about five years ago in Los Angeles

Our extended family has been taking turns in Los Angeles and San Diego as we worked on getting him back to health and moving him and all his belongings to Florida so he could be closer to family.  I was first in Florida to help take care of my Mom and then flew directly to California for over 2 weeks to help with my uncle.  It has not been an easy couple of months but I'm finally home!

On Saturday, Broc and I had our first day in weeks to do something together and we took full advantage of it.  We hit up the Farmers Market, then High Five Coffee, and an afternoon movie, The Fits, at the new Independent Theater in downtown Asheville. While the movie has some good critical reviews, neither of us liked it that much.  I give it 3 stars and Broc would probably give it 1 star.  However, we were the only people in the theater at 1:30 p.m.  and it had big comfy chairs

Our sweet friends have a new two-person kayak and they lent it to us in the early evening.  We live right on Beaver Lake but in the over five years that we've lived here have never been out on the lake.  What fun!!  It was a gorgeous day and we so enjoyed just paddling around and enjoying the scenery.

A bit later on we walked down to our sunset watching spot with our wine to end a perfect day.
