Today I’m sharing our June Mountain Moments. When I started this blog in 2013, it was a form of diary to document what we did and most importantly what we ate. Sometimes I get so caught up in sharing our delicious food, I forget about all the stuff in between. So this month I’d like to start sharing a little recap of what happened the previous month in and outside of our mountain kitchen. #MountainLife

June Mountain Moments is just a little bit more about what’s been going on with us. I feel this blog has lost some of the personal touches because I don’t get a chance to write like I used to. I’ve really missed writing about life outside of the kitchen, but don’t worry, there will be some talk about food. Our world revolves around our next meal. I’ll always talk about food here…lol!

So here goes, let’s recap what happened in the month of June…

Seth the graduate and David

Seth Graduated High School

David and I took a long weekend to go to North Carolina to see our grandson Seth graduate high school. We are very proud of him!

Elmwood 1820 Bed and Breakfast

Our Stay at Elmwood 1820

While we were in North Carolina we stayed at a Bed & Breakfast, Elmwood 1820. This eye-catching historic home is gorgeous inside and out. One of the Inn-Keepers happens to be a very dear childhood friend of mine and I was delighted to have time to catch up with him during our stay.

Planning a visit to Washington, North Carolina? Book a stay!

Critter Trapping 101

We thought perhaps there was a third groundhog living under our porch, but we haven’t seen any physical evidence in about a week now. I probably should knock on wood or something because I do not want to have to deal with another one!

Debbie and David canoeing on Shenandoah

An Unofficial River Trip

Although it was not our typical river trip, David and I did get a chance to spend a few hours on the river in June. Between David’s back and timing we haven’t been able to go like we usually do. We wanted to test the waters (pun intended) with David’s back. The canoe didn’t seem to bother it. At least this is a step in the right direction doing something we moved to the mountains to do.

On an even brighter note, the chiropractor really worked some magic! David says his back is feeling better than it has in a long time. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers!

COMMENTS OF THE MONTH!

“Hi, Debbie I stumbled across your blog looking for a recipe for spinach and mushroom quiche and boy am I glad I did.!! I don’t normally care for blogs but yours grabbed my attention; you are so down to earth and funny as hell.” 

– Renee

“We absolutely LOVED these!!!!!! What a Wonderful New Idea for Nachos!! THANKS, BUNCHES!!” 

–  Lynne (Comment & 5-Star rating on Greek Nachos)

“It’s good to find another Julia and Justin fan. When I was young in the days before VCR’s, I would fake being sick so I could stay home and watch Julia. When I first saw Justin I had trouble understanding him because he did not speak with the local Minnesota accent. After a couple of shows, I was hooked. I will be following your blog. I Guar-Ron-tee.”

AROUND THE MOUNTAIN!!

Big Bear On The Mountain!

The largest bear we have yet to see on the mountain entered into the yard interested in tasting a doe and her new fawn. Fortunately, I saw the deer in the yard again yesterday morning without the bear! They must have stayed a step ahead of the large bear and escaped unharmed.
