This Hyatt is wonderful and we had a great time here. Except it is so darn cold out.

Happy Thanksgiving

Grandma Marjie, Julia and Andrea

Andrea and Ryan fixed a great Thanksgiving dinner, and we ate too much, a family tradition.
It is rainy today. We are staying at the Hyatt Place in Mishawaka, Indiana. Very nice hotel. We are going home on Saturday. Enough time for Andrea and I to get in a little shopping.

Beautiful Sunrise and Sunset


Sunrise - reminds me of an oil painting.

November has the best sunrises and sunsets. The sun is pretty low in the sky and there are often clouds on the horizon. It is still dark out this morning and it is cloudy with many very bright stars and planets shining bright.

Deer Hunting

Paul got home from deer camp at noon on Tuesday. He saw many deer, but the largest was only a 4 point. Not big enough to shoot. He can get that size right behind our garage. In fact, Squeak was hunting in his blind there and got a doe, a spike and a 6 point. He has a picture of an 8 point on the trail cam, but he only comes late at night.

However, he had lots of guy fun. Which is the whole point of deer camp. I wouldn't mind some good venison for hamburger and filets, and he will probably get a deer for meat.

I stayed home and ate frozen Marie Callender and Boston Market. In my opinion, Boston Market is the best. Oh, the hot lava cake in the butter section of the supermarket is pretty good too.

It is gray and cold here, not much sun today. Baby Boy Sens has been cooperative and didn't interrupt deer season, next hurdle is Thanksgiving, then we can make a run to NY.

Replacing the grocery getter

The color is a med green with lots of metal flake in the paint, chrome wheels, and every option available. Has 87,000 miles and lots more to go. The van is going to retire to Texas. I am going to have fun driving this in the summers!

This is the engine in my 1996 Taurus SHO 3.4 liter DOHC 32- Valve V-8. It looks like a plain car on the outside but is really fast. Ironic, since I don't ever drive fast. But I could if I wanted to.

Catch up Time

Pretty little Julia, age 4

Over the colds, and weirdly thrown off by the time change, time for a new blog. Andrea and family were here for the weekend. Fun, lots of walks with the kids. They all went to a wedding on Saturday night.
