Where Is Nana Diana Today?

Wondering where I am?
Here's a hint..
Yes! Yes!
 The Bahamas!
I may be mistaken.
What's that?
No palm trees?
No leaves?
Can't  be the Bahamas
then, can it?

I love it here-
Up Nort' 
(as they say in this
area-the H is silent)
It reminds me of being
a kid again...
a carefree tree climber-
that's what I was.
The other day I told
God I sure wished I
could climb a tree again.
Do you think maybe He is
giving me an opportunity here?
Hmmmm..still a little steep
for this gal.
Now HERE'S a tree I
can probably climb.
And no one will be sitting
here watching me today...
Too cold... 38º to be exact.
We always dream a bit 
about buying a little piece 
of Heaven up here
but so far...we just look....
and dream...
and go home where
all the kids and grandkids
await us.

Just so I wouldn't get
bored without all the 
kids around I brought
along my own 
Tickle Me Elmo doll.
Notice he is gazing
at something with 
rapt attention.
Is he looking at this beautiful
view just outside our window?
He is gazing at 
something exploding on TV.
I knew I should have brought
something to play with..
Oh~Wait~I did!
I did!
Maybe later, when I am bored,
I'll bring out the 
You know one of those
Fantasy Games 
some people play...
Like I pretend I'm
Sue Smith (sorry Sue)
and Sammy Slapp (sorry Sammy)
pretends to pick me up?
No? What do you mean
Well, then I guess it
is back to the regular 
52 Pick Up Card Game!
Yep...much more my speed!

Hope  YOU are having
as exciting of a day
as I am!;>)

Enjoy your time up north! Lovely views. My husband got a burn permit and he'll be playing with fire today. The girls and I are going to find some "projects" to do indoors.

time away is good no matter what you do!

outjunking said...

Sounds like we might be married to brothers. 38 degrees ouch! It's 60 here and I'm bundle up to the chin.
Enjoy the view and be careful around those trees.

Sally said...

If you do climb a tree, please be careful; I'm not sure your Elmo would notice seeing as how he's concentrating so hard. :)

Bundle up and enjoy that gorgeous view, but I would definitely stay away from those trees! They look pretty hazardous to me… Have a wonderful weekend!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Don't have too much fun!!

Patty Patterson said...

I bet you could climb a tree if you wanted to! Go for it.... and take a picture. Just have your DH there in case you need a little help getting down!

Lucille said...

Hi Diana! Whatever you do, don't even attempt to climb that tree. Play with your cards or your computer or go for beautiful nature walks. Just relax and breathe in the wonderful fresh air. Have a wonderful time.

Marsha said...

Enjoy your Saturday! What a pretty water view.

Maureen Wyatt said...

I'm sure the only thing that holds you back from scaling those trees is the weather! Enjoy your vacay! ~ Maureen

Gina said...

Beautiful pictures! I think you can have fun no matter where you are...enjoy the weekend!

Sonny G said...

enjoy every moment, whatever ya decide to do..

Blondie's Journal said...

I'm green with envy! It looks like you are having a great time in spite of the temps. It's just so nice to get away from the routine. Wish I were there!

Happy Weekend!


Elaine said...

Always nice to get out where you can hear nature and take it in beauty. Enjoy the weekend

Janet said...

Looks like a very pretty place to get away! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Ruth Kelly said...

What is it with guys who just can't leave the TV be? If you go to a cabin without a tv, then there is no running water or indoor plumbing like the cheap places in Yellowstone Park.

You almost took me in..then I remembered it was you....and am beginning to 'suss out' your sense of humour!! Glad that you could enjoy such lovely scenery and ...maybe ...someday...there will be a tree for you to climb! Joan

Susie said...

Diana, I was sad when I could not read your site early this morning....then I remembered you went away for the weekend. Hope it's a great time with Elmo:):) Careful climbing girl, you could skin your knees. Smiles, xo, Susie

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

Hi, Diana! Do you know what an absolute BLESSING you are? I always know, without a doubt, when I visit your blog I will smile but often you have me laughing out loud! Thank you! Thank you! I've been catching up and have enjoyed every minute! You truly have a gift for writing with humor and I thank you for sharing this gift! Enjoy your time away!

Nellie said...

It appears that you had more luck with the hotel Internet than I had on our brief time away. I'm really behind on my blog-following and may never catch up.:) Hopefully that TV has an on/OFF button!:)

Haddock said...

A change is always welcome, and the Bahamas..... too good :-)

ShabbyESP said...

Enjoy your mini vacation!!!
Suzann ~xoxo~

Cindy Adkins said...

You are hilarious, Diana!!! I LOVE the pictures and I wish I was on a tropical vacation...I've been so busy writing that I haven't seen the light of day and it's 80 degrees out!
Sending (((hugs)))) your way and lots of love,

Maria Elena said...

Have fun!!!!!!! 38 degrees? WOW! We were in the mid 80's here today. Crazy!

Unknown said...

You're so funny! Is this northern Michigan? Sure looks like waterways I'm used to.
I picked something cute up for you....saw it and just had to get it cuz it's soooooooooooo Diana! I'll get it out to you this coming week. Something small but sweet.

Looks like a gorgeous place to take it easy.

Jettie said...

You can't go to the Bahamas without me, so you had better not be there..
