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
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
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.

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. It’s only for the first week I worked, but it’s about as much as I sometimes earned in a two week period at Wagon Trail Campground. Of course, I had an easier job at Wagon Trail Campground and more beautiful surroundings and my bosses and co-workers were like family, so those perks were worth more than money to me.
