I just got back from a weekend trip that involved visiting three members of my husband’s family – his parents – and his uncle. Had it not been for a global pandemic, none of this would really be noteworthy. It was great seeing people again – and I have some photos to share!
Sadly, we learned that my in-laws’ dog Major died a short time ago 😦 They still have three cats, however – and a summer visit – when all of the windows can be opened up – is the absolute best time for a cat-allergic person to visit people with cats!
Aside from weather muggier than the inside of a toilet on our first night, weather was pretty lovely for our two-night visit. It was a good excuse to just sit and watch the river, which occasionally had people floating in it.
Not far from our minds on the trip was our friend’s son, whom has been battling cancer for the past 17 months. His most recent battle involved getting a tumor removed from his brain. The surgery was successful – and he’s coming home today. If there is any news I love to hear involving cancer, it’s GOOD news!
If my blog headline is going to continue being accurate, how about talking about our FIRST TENT CAMPING TRIP OF THE YEAR? We tentatively plan to camp near the West Branch area of MI beginning July 4. A possible visit with an old high school friend might be incorporated into that trip, too!
What else? We ordered a stationary exercise bike! My husband and I both want to get into better shape – him because of stiffness/arthritis issues – me because I need to lose some weight (hey I’m not the only one who put on some weight during this pandemic). I also have my own issues keeping me from taking walks more regularly (a bum ankle, if you will), so hopefully some bike rides to nowhere (LOL) will help boost my strength in a low-impact way and help me shed some pounds. Hell, just putting the damn thing together will probably be a workout in itself!
That’s about all I have to report for now…
