Rip Van Winkle.
It’s been ages since I’ve posted. Life has been full, and while I’ve thought about putting it down for you to read, that’s as far as it’s gotten. I need to get a new memory card reader for my camera, so I can share a wealth of pictures that have accumulated. I’m a dinosaur where phones are concerned. I have a Tracfone flip phone. It DOES take pictures, but I haven’t a clue how to move them from the phone to more useful media.
We’ve been busy. (Obviously too busy to get the memory card reader! lol) We are mostly moved into our “new” home. We have to do a little work in the garage yet, and in the basement TV area, and the living room.
We celebrated our 25th anniversary early by going on a Viking Tulip Time cruise with friends. We flew to Amsterdam and then cruised around the Netherlands and Belgium. We were gone from May 1 to 11, and it was a wonderful trip! If you watch PBS and see the pictures of the riverboat in Budapest, thats the type of boat we were on.
Our oldest granddaughter is eleven and I’ve been teaching her to sew. My goal is to get her to the point where she can make a simple quilt, but we started with a portable game and a skirt. I think it’s been a good start!
We came back from vacation and scheduled sleep tests for both of us. We both flunked. We see a consultant next Monday and will likely be using Cpap equipment in the future.
Fred is learning to soar. He started in late March with lessons at a soaring association west of us and is nearing the time when he will solo. He’ll have to have more instruction and then take a very long written test, and a soaring test to get his license. He may have to do an oral test, too. I’m not sure about that. He’s as happy as a clam.
The Arr! is for sale. Know anyone who wants to buy a 1983 Bayfield 30 foot sailboat?
We’ve seen our house and lawn through every season, now. I have plans to change the front landscaping. Although I like most of the plants, I think the curb appeal is sadly lacking. I’ve met one neighbor who is an amazing gardener, and I understand there is another just a few doors down who is an expert at landscape design, so you can guess what I hope to be doing this winter.
We’re well and busy, and settled in. I hope that those of you who might chance to read this are having a good summer.
