Hello Spark Friends! Just wanted to update you as to where I was while I was MIA. Last Sunday DH wanted me to ride the motorcycle with him up to Blessing of the Bikes at Baldwin, MI - so off we went! That's where my new photo is from. That's the longest ride I've been on in a long time and the weather was in the 50's - I did well. Before we left I asked DH if the temp was at least in the 50's and his answer was, "Yup, almost!" Very cute - it was actually 49 degrees.
From Sunday eve till last night I was at DD's house helping her with the kids. Whew - that was a busy week! Did lots of laundry, loaded and unloaded the dishwasher a lot, held 3 week old grandson as much as I could, and played with the other two (a 17 month old and a 4 year old). I got lots of exercise! I found out that pushing 60 pounds worth of grandsons in the stroller is good for my butt muscles :o)! Even though I haven't posted anything, it was a great week in the moving my body department.
So that's where I've been. I'm taking the train back there on Sunday, will stay overnight (I'm encouraging my DD and SIL to go out minus kids), and will pick up my DH at the airport and head home from there. After that it will be back to a regular work week for me. I might have to work on changing my vocabulary for that!
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend everyone. Don't forget to count your blessings, and remember those who gave their lives for our freedom!
