Return to the Poconos

Oh, how I *adore* national parks =o) I doubt you could ever tell by looking at me that I truly feel at home in a cabin in the middle of nowhere and that I have the grit for survival in an area with a notorious family of bears ^_^

Though I was really happy to return to the cabin after a 2 year absence, I was saddened by the realization that the cabin may be sold in the near future. On the plus side, Bub and I might try to buy-out the other owner – my only apprehension is that he and I are not married but owning that property together may bind us in a common law marriage w/ PA laws (will have to check that out if we do decide to keep the cabin and surrounding property). Still, couldn’t keep me away from the East Stroudsburg town where there’s a crazy-huge scrapbooking/hobby supplier (totally am a supporter of local businesses), the candle shops (where they will customize any candle for you! How’s that for service?!) with the exotic birds, miniature ponies, koi fish, antique cars and selective seasonal wares, the Pocono Bazzaar (Bub thinks I should try selling my soaps, cards and other professional-looking handmade products there), but mostly just enjoying the beauty of the area! I sleep better, eat better and am overall more energetic and happy out in the refreshing greenery of PA – it’s been a longtime dream to just revert to a simplier life on a plot of land with a veggie and flower garden, some animals and my lover + potential children.

OH! I got these delicious pumps from Jump! with cute rhinestone hearts for the strap buckle ;oD Baby also won pretty big at the new Mount Airy Casino (we thought the Lodge was still there) and we did our usual romping round like an “old married couple.” I can’t wait to bring my friends and family there if/when Bub and I get the cabin to ourselves and spruce things up =oD

PS should I be worried about being stalked on my blogs?! I can see my visitors and there are two in particular who religiously (like almost minute by minute) read my ramblings (as if there’s much to begin with!). At least, my cousin is a police officer, mom has friends in various precincts as do I and I haven’t been “contacted” (not to my knowledge anyway) by them (could be just one from 2 locations).
