Mark’s last day at work was last Saturday and mine was today. Mark has been doing things to the RV to prepare for our trip to the frozen north. He resealed the roof, patched leaks, caulked, put our new (to us) topper over the bedroom slide out, and began packing things back into the basement of the RV. Continue reading
Happy belated Easter to all you who don’t get my blog till the next day! This is the first Easter in my entire life when I have worn a sleeveless dress; it was nearly 90°! Continue reading

This morning, there was so much sleet and ice that Mark and I and my sister and her husband all stayed home from church.

Several of you have asked me about Mark. He left the day after Christmas and headed south for training in Florida. He arrived at his destination on Thursday, the 5th. On the 6th, he went to check out his new school.
So much to do, so little time! We wanted to go to the Christmas Eve service at church last night, but we were busy doing our last minute shopping and wrapping for each other after spending a day catching up on laundry and trying to get ready for Monday. We wanted to go to the Christmas day service this morning, but we were getting dressed, having breakfast, and opening our presents before going over to my older sister’s house for Christmas dinner. We had to leave her place early to continue getting ready for our big moves tomorrow. Still, we read the Christmas story and listened to “real” Christmas carols about Christ’s birth. It was a good day.
