Life is kind of leveling off here,,no trauma this week, no hospital visits, no bad-mom calls from the home...
I am not used to this, there is always something going on.,,,
DD and I are still discussing different things we are going to do on vacation this August!! Not too excited, are we? I am so glad I reserved our cabin in both places.. All we have to do is pack and enjoy the trip up there!! This year I will be prepared for another possible bear encounter in the forest while picking huckleberries!! Either polka music or rap.. both ends of the scale, I figure I will have everything covered in the bear family!!

    Bear? You encountered a bear? I didn't read about this. & what did you do? Dance with it?
I'm actually glad there's no drama going on now. Hope it continues that way.

A mild day, nothing special,, still no snow,, Michiganders know better than to even imagine no snow,, so we all wait for the other shoe to drop.. on our heads,, the big one is coming,,,
no plans can be made all winter,, from October till May or June,, it is either rain or snow or sleet or ice storms.. if we are very lucky, no power outages!!

    We are supposed to be getting a snow storm on Thursday.
I guess it is time otherwise winter might go on until June and I do not like that idea at all
I walked the rail trail today but only as far as the ice. I really do not like to walk on it.
Snow is so much easier to take in my opinion.

    I hear you about the power outages: over the last couple of weeks, we've had tremendous wind storms, really fierce, leaving lots of damage and even injuries to people. Even with branches flying all over and so forth, we didn't lose our power, not even so much as a blip - for which I am truly thankful!!!

NIce weekend

Sunday, January 08, 2012

Despite our cold weather, it has been a nice weekend. We had a nice fajita dinner with Karen, she did the cooking, I bought her a small cake at the bakery and had it iced with the words, "We Love You" on it. Her favorite is chocolate on chocolate, so that is what she had for desert. We then went to Mass and early on, a woman went down across the church, so the ambulance drama was there, and we have never been in that particular church before, so it was quite an interesting afternoon.
Today is take-down-the-Christmas tree day.. got to pack it for sale this summer...

    Took my tree down on New Year's Eve. I'm always so hesitant to put it up, and once I get it all up and decorated, I hate to take it down. It's such a chore, but love the look of it while it's there. It seems so empty when I take it down.

    Hope the lady is ok, I'm sure she had many praying for her!

I've also been taking down Christmas decor! We bought a new tree at an "after Christmas" sale - so the old one is going out. It weighs a ton, and I hurt my back every year lifting it up to my husband (as he is sitting in the attic). The new one is a lot lighter.

It will be nice having the house back in order though, right? (as if it's ever in order!)

    It WAS a busy day for you! I hope the lady that went down is OK now. I took all the ornaments off the Christmas tree today, too........took me about 6 and 1/2 hours......

I took the snowflakes off two days ago, and THAT took me about another 4 hours. Still have to take the lights off and pack the tree away. All the branches have to be taken out one by one. It is a major job to put up AND take down!

I love the tree though, looked at MANY before I found this one. It is tall and full! This is the 11th year for it!
