My son and daughter-in-law are here to visit for a couple days. This morning they came to see the house and the yard. Sarah is good at identifying plants and she says she thinks I have grapes and golden raspberries in my yard. She recommended we wait to see whether they are before we consider pulling them out.

It has been pointed out to me that it’s been a few days since I last posted. That’s because I’ve been busy. Continue reading
In unpacking boxes that we have had stored for the last 4 1/2 years, I came across my slow cooker, so this morning Mark and I got up and put the makings for a pot roast in it. Then we went to his church. When we came home, the house smelled wonderful! Continue reading
Mark worked six days this week, his first week of having his own business. I haven’t focused much on how that’s been going for him, so I’ll give him a little press tonight.
From the time Mark entered Door County, he has been staying with a couple from my church, John and Georgene Mann. They let him park the RV in front of their milking barn. They didn’t have the right kind of hookups for him, but between his generator and his propane tank, he managed.
Last fall, I wrote about how God opened the treasure houses of heaven and showered Mark and me with more blessings than we could have ever imagined. Money was coming from multiple sources in unexpected ways. But it wasn’t just monetary blessing. I’ve been waiting for months to write about what God is doing for us… Continue reading
I have been working at Williams-Sonoma for about two weeks now, and today I got my first paycheck.

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! 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
