Merry Christmas

Good morning and a Merry Christmas!
It is currently 17 out, and with some light snow yesterday afternoon, and during the night, we are having a white Christmas.  :-)
Sunday, we went to Muskegon to spend the day with my Mom and my brother Brian and his wife Ruth. After cutting Mom's hair, taking out her trash, and getting her shopping list in order, we met Brian and Ruth at Logan's Roadhouse. Everyone had a steak which was very good. After, we headed over to the VFW for drinks, talk and a few pull-tabs. It was a nice visit. On the way back to Mom's apartment, we stopped to get her some groceries. Got her settled in, said our goodbyes, and made it back to Lansing.
Monday, we worked a short day in the Salon, and as a holiday treat, bought a frozen pizza for dinner.  :-)
Spent the afternoon on the puter, searching campgrounds for the upcoming season.
We had wanted to go to Indiana Dunes State Park for Memorial day weekend, but even though it's not even January, I discovered the entire campground is already booked.  :-(
I didn't realize, Memorial Day is less than 6 months away, and popular campgrounds book up very early.
So, we went through our appointment books, decided what weekends we could take, and marked out 11 for this year. And since our first trip will be less than 5 months away, I booked 3 of them. We so far have 2 new campgrounds we are going to, Hocking Hills State Park in south-eastern Ohio, and will soon book a weekend at Starved Rock State Park in north-central Illinois. This year, I've convinced Craig to take an extra day off on some of our weekends, so we can go a little farther away.  :-)
And today, it will be a nice quiet day at home before we go back to work tomorrow.
Merry Christmas everyone!

  2. Glad to hear you talked Craig into taking a little more time to relax!
    I did not realize that campgrounds booked that early. Wow.

    Thanks, Wayne. Merry Christmas to both of you, too!

    Hocking Hills has a number of intersting natural sites to visit. Let me know of your dates and maybe I can get over there to meet you and Craig.
