Scattered to the wind

Last year and the year before, Mark and I were working at Wagon Trail Campground.  Had we been there this year, Monday would have been our last day of work and we would have likely been heading out yesterday.  All day Monday, I was thinking about my friends at Wagon Trail and wishing I could be with them at their staff party, but I’m not staff there anymore.   Continue reading

From Wausau, WI

After four years of moving around, we have finally learned that we need to make our first day a shorter drive than any of the others.  This is because there is always more to do to get going than we anticipate, and because we stop on our way to load up with paper plates, plastic ware and easy food for the trip.  We have to put everything on our counters (both bathroom and kitchen) into the sinks so it won’t fall on the floor while we are on the road.  Thus, the need for paper plates!

God’s provision for us

We went to my church, Community Friends Church, yesterday.  In the “programmed” Friends meetings, there is a time for open worship.  This is a designated five or ten minute period of silence where people can talk about what God is doing in their lives, ask for prayer, read a passage of scripture, sing, or whatever they feel moved by the Spirit to do.  So I shared about coming to the point of thanking God that we won’t be able to come back to Wagon Trail Campground next year and that my life is in upheaval and I don’t know what He’s doing, but deciding to trust Him.

By request of Judy!

The president of my Wisconsin fan club, Judy Boldt, was after me today for not writing anything since my bicycle accident, so I’m dedicating this post to her!  This may be a bit of a mish-mash because I can’t quite decide which of several things to write about, but here goes: Continue reading

Only a week behind…

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

In the midst of a remodel and stuff

Mom reminded me today that it’s been a while since I’ve written.  First of all, we’ve been in the midst of a remodel, and that being so, we haven’t gotten out much.  However, I thought you might be interested to see what we’ve been working on.

The perks of working at Wagon Trail Campground!

Wednesday night, almost the entire staff, including Tim and Kathy who arranged it, got to take a boat tour of the bluffs with Shoreline Tours.  This came about because someone from the tour company took the Certified Tourism Ambassador (CTA) training with us a few weeks ago and they offered us a free tour.  I took well over two hundred pictures and it has taken me a few days to edit them all.  Now, picking just a few of these to show you is my next hurdle!

God’s bountiful provision

When I was young, about forty years ago, there was a series of record albums (remember those?) called Environments.  The creator of the albums would go to some remote place like the ocean or a lake during a storm and record the sounds.  Each side of the album would play about half an hour of whatever the microphone caught and for that glorious amount of time, you could be transported there within the confines of your own home.
