Early this morning, Mark parked his motorcycle in the garage at our new house and gave Tim a quick tour. Then Tim took him to Green Bay and put him on the bus for Milwaukee, WI. Once there, Mark boarded the train heading west. WooHoo! Continue reading
This last week I was at my Dad’s house and he kept me so busy I didn’t write much. Mark and I have both had a chance to accumulate some pictures. I’ll start with his first:
There have been a couple stressors in my life for a while now, and today I was able to take care of them both in one fell swoop! (Or at least, one fell day.) Part of this involves confession time… Continue reading
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.
I have been using my “spare” time, when I’m not working or tired and sore, writing Christmas cards, and some of you may already have received one from me. If you have a change of address since last year, please send it to me before I get to your name. So far, I’m into the “G’s”. This has precluded what little writing time I’ve had for my blog, but today I have pictures that I wanted to share.
Originally we had planned for today to be a six hour day of travel and to have two hours left to travel tomorrow, but my older sister, Sherill, suggested we come the extra two hours and stay at her house tonight. That sounded appealing so we took her up on it, but it did make for a very long drive.
It’s been a pretty good day in the Midwest. We woke up to sunshine. The park we had stayed in last night was kind of a city park and we could hear traffic, but it was still a pretty place. Continue reading
Today all the campers were supposed to be out of here by noon. Mark and I needed to gather up any of the liquids we worked with that might freeze and put them in the heated garage. We also needed to do one last wipe-down, not a full cleaning, so that the bathrooms would be okay for the winter. Around 3:00 a couple people came in while we were working. Other than them, the campground was almost like a ghost town. Basically only the staff was here. Continue reading
Yesterday after our afternoon cleaning, we joined the seasonals and staff for the annual fall potluck. Here are some pictures: Continue reading
OK, so this happened last weekend: We had the annual staff and seasonal spring potluck. Usually they try to have it in May or early June when more of the staff can be available, but this time it was difficult for everyone to coordinate their schedule, so Mark and I and Chris and Deb were the only staff members who were able to attend. Here are the pictures: Continue reading
