Just Doing What We Do

Yesterday was craft day.  Judy went to her quilting/sewing group in the morning and I went to a painting class in the afternoon.   Judy will continue with her quilting group, but I won’t be going back to the painting class – it isn’t what I’m looking for at this time.  I borrowed a couple of books on the subject from the library and will continue watching Susan Scheewe and Bob Ross on PBS.

Jim and Ellie invited us over for a chat and chew.  Ellie prepared a wonderful chicken casserole and salad while Jim donned his apron and prepared a yummy Georgia Peach Cake (an Uncle Bubba’s special).  Bo cuddled up next to Judy and indulged himself in all the attention he could muster up while Jasmine made her presence known by hopping up into my lap for some loving.  It was another great evening with great food and delightful conversation.  Thanks guys, we’re looking forward to a couple more “get togethers” with Jim and Ellie before they pull up anchor.

Judy and I have been finalizing our 2012 budget and travel plans.  Right now we a planning a trip to the hill country area of Texas with Mike and Peggy in March.  Then in April we’ll begin heading slowly north with stops in Murfreesboro, TN (grand kid fix) and Asheville, NC on our way to Alexandria, VA (Mary and Joel).  We’ll be in New Hampshire (grand kid fix) and Maine sometime in mid to late May. 

Then we’ll turn west in June heading for Michigan for our workamping gig in Petoskey (June 10 to October ?).  We’ll be staying with Ray and Pat for a few days in Mecosta, MI before returning to Murfreesboro (another grand kid fix) and return to Summerdale by way of the Natchez Trace Parkway.  This is a rough outline which is carved in putty subject to change at any time.
