Technical Difficulties

Here we are back in the UP.  It is a well needed vacation, I was getting a bit frazzled in my day to day.  My heart longs for this place when I am not here.  Sometimes a little, and sometimes a lot.  So, we are back!  Wednesday night around midnight I woke my husband up […]

Last Day

Well, here it is, the last day in our little vacation get away.  Tomorrow we will leave and head home to Mississippi.  There is ice on the roads down there so hopefully we will have an uneventful trip.  The last day is always filled with cleaning and packing and it just makes it oh so […]

Last Ride

Well, today was most likely my last ride for the winter.  I don’t think I did too bad, I mean I think I put on about 435 total miles.  On a snowmobile.  In the cold.  Today I think when we left the house the temperature was 4 degrees and felt like -7.  Anyone who has ever […]

Quite a Day

Yesterday was a lazy day.  We are currently under a lake effect snow advisory and it was really snowing yesterday.  And cold!  So, we stayed home and watched movies. It was a nice relaxing day.   This morning, Rod decided he had to wake up early so that we could go out.  Ok.  I don’t […]

Perspective

As I sit here in my little house up North, supper is cooking in the oven and I have no idea where Rod and Sterling are.  They left for a ride around 3:30 this afternoon and I took off for a walk to the Lake.  Spencer has been keeping to himself the entire time we […]

146 Miles

Today my son and my husband wanted to go riding.  They absolutely love riding and usually want me to come with them.  I didn’t wake up wanting to ride and frankly Rod was irritating me due to a misunderstanding from the night before.  I wasn’t going to go at all.  Then I thought about my […]

Happy New Year

Well, it is officially 2017.  Today is a clean slate.  Today we all have the power to change our year for the better, or for the worse.  We can actually make the changes any day, but for some reason the beginning of a new year seems special to us.  We make resolutions, myself included.  Most […]

Walking With Sterling

What a lazy day!   Sometimes those are the kinds of days that you need, and I guess New Year’s Eve is as good a day as any to have a lazy day.  No one got overly excited about going anywhere and with football games to be watched, I saw a lot of clock watching […]

Snowmobiling

This morning I woke up feeling really good.  I made pancakes for breakfast and while I was eating my husband says, “Anybody want to go for a ride?  Babe?”  Well darn.  I thought I’d have another day or so to work up my courage.  No such luck.  But, one of the New Year’s Resolutions that […]
