This was an errand day for Dave.  We went thru our closets and gave clothes to Good Will for one thing.  He also had to return the tv he bought last Friday.  Three of the channels had no sound.  So he got another one today and all the channels work!  Then he moved things out of the craft room so the carpenters that are to be here in the morning don't have to work around stuff.  I think that means I have to get up earlier than normal!

Tonight besides watching the Cubs game, we got to talk to Aidan on the phone.  He told us about his day at school (he started a new pre-school yesterday)!  He's such a sweetie!!

Didn't get to post last night.  This dumb computer shut down on me.  I will never have another HP laptop.  This one has too many things it does like shutting  down on it's own, or freezing and then I have to pull the battery to get it to restart,  Grrrr..........

We had a good day.  Cooked burgers for lunch and ate out on the balcony.  Then we made cheesy potatoes for the condo picnic starting at 5:30.  Delicious food and 37 attendees!

Fun weekend!

We had such a fun weekend.  We went to Harvest Farm campground on Friday morning.  It took us 2.5 hours to get there - it should have been 1.5 hours...another one of those shortcuts!!  Not only was it a longer than it should have been trip, it was also a bumpier trip with curvy and chipped road!!  Needless to say we came a different way home!  Bryan and Aidan got there in 1.5 hours later in the day.  It was so nice there.  Friday was perfect but Saturday was drizzly for a while.  Then it turned out beautiful too.  We even got to have a campfire Saturday night, so Aidan could  have S'mores!  Now that Aidan talks, he's just so entertaining.  He's always talking about Grandpa Dave!  He was so good all weekend!

We came home today just in time to watch the Cubs sweep the Cardinals!  That was a lot of fun, too!!

Today was kind of a quiet day.  Other than getting things ready to go camping this weekend, we didn't do a lot.  Dave even got to take a nap.  I had an outing to go to.  One of the ladies who lives here is moving to Davenport as soon as her condo sells.  She will probably be gone when we get back from Florida in the spring.  Another lady down the hall had a little get together for the ladies...wine, cake, snacks, etc.  It was nice.  I think there were 10 of us there. 

Now I'm watching the Cubs!  I'm pretty sure we won't have tv or wifi at this campground, so I won't be posting for a day or two!

Summer is back in Waterloo.  It was 86 today and supposed to be hot all weekend.  I guess that's good.  We're camping this weekend and I'm pretty sure that where we're going we can't get wifi!  Bryan and Aidan are also going.  Bryan's taking their camper.  Tomorrow we'll load the camper and we plan to leave Friday morning.  This campground is near Cresco...way up north near the Minnesota border.

Today was fun...for me.  Not so much for Dave.  Dave was in charge of the window washers, so he was tied up from 9:00 until 3:30.  I, however, went to the eye doctor to pick out my new glasses and then went to have a pedicure.  This evening we went to LJ's for supper.  Now we're watching the Cubs.

Busy Day

We got busy this morning finishing up the den.  It looks really nice.  Next Weds. the guys come to paint the ceiling and frame in the windows.  Then it will be done!  Yay!!

This afternoon I had to make a salad for my PEO meeting - a salad potluck.  Yummy!  I made a grape salad which was very popular. 

Now I'm watching the Cubs!

A new day!

Today we both woke up early to see how the Holiday Ranch made it through the hurricane.  We were very pleasantly surprised to find that most of the units in the park made it through just fine, ours included!  God is good!
