The Condensed Version

I went to Florida and all I got was this lousy. . . 

sinus infection. No, not really. I got some good stuff, too! You would think I would be editing photos like crazy in order to share our 16-day adventure with you. Uh, no. Not so much. This infection has me feeling generally lethargic and "headachy." OK, everything is unpacked, the laundry is done, the house is in order, the meals are being made, consumed and cleaned up after, and even the Easter decor is put away. Other than that, I've basically been sitting around the house doing a whole lot of nuthin' - except sneezing, coughing and clearing my throat. Just delightful!

Still, I feel I owe you some sort of post - just to let you know that we're still living and breathing in the Keweenaw. Since my concentration skills are a bit lacking right now, I thought I would give you the Reader's Digest Condensed Version of our trip. Here goes.

We were in 11 states in 16 days. We saw some stuff.

We ate some stuff.
Steve's Flounder at Clark's Fish Camp, Jacksonville, FL

We visited Senior Citizen Land (aka Golf Cart Haven) - The Villages, FL. I was already sick; Steve got a little sun. Greatly enjoyed our time with family.

We saw more stuff - sometimes just through the windows of the vehicle.

The Keweenaw had some pretty significant melting in the snow department while we were away, but we awoke to this scenery on Sunday morning.

It was 64° here the day before. Now? We're in the midst of a good old-fashioned ice storm. Limbs are falling from trees as I type. Hoping the power stays on!

All is well in the Keweenaw.

Sunday Reflections

"For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received,
how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again
the third day according to the scriptures."
I Corinthians 15:3,4

All is well in the Keweenaw.

Here's a little secret. We were on vacation from April 2-17. We had a great time visiting family in Florida, and I'll share more details about our trip soon. My allergies were triggered the minute we hit the Florida state line 2 weeks ago, and that has now turned into a full-blown sinus infection. I was down for the count Wednesday and yesterday, but I'm rallying today in order to take advantage of my free birthday meal at our favorite restaurant! 

Mr. Cut Off informs me that the last 2 days were pretty gray and dreary around here, so I didn't miss much. Today, however, we were greeted with a fresh coating of snow and beautiful sapphire blue skies. Not a cloud in sight!

Oh, it's good to be home in the peace & quiet of the Keweenaw!

We have some errands to run today courtesy of the State of Michigan. They give us the best birthday presents ever. That's the day our driver's license and license plate tabs have to be renewed. Since my birthday and Mr. Cut Off's birthday are just a week apart, we get hit with a double whammy every April. Yeah, tabs for 3 vehicles and 2 driver's licenses in one week. Thanks, Michigan! So, that's on the must-do list today, and we'll meet friends for dinner later. I can rest again tomorrow, right?!

Oh, and Chloe's home, too! She's one of the deer who hangs in our backyard.

All is well in the Keweenaw.

Sunday Reflections - Easter!

"He is not here: for He is risen, as He said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay."
Matthew 28:6

All is well in the Keweenaw.
