It was a good weekend, even though I had a couple of moments of my own. I won't go into detail about it here, but suffice it to say that when you hurt someone I love through your selfish inconsiderateness...you do NOT win points where I am concerned. The end.
The countryside was beautiful. I told the Irishman that I always thought I liked southern Wisconsin more than northern, but I have changed my mind. The area north of Chippewa Falls is breathtakingly beautiful. Here's a picture (s) of the Chippewa River at a little town called Jims Falls:
This was our cabin. #2
The great room
The cabin and deck.
Kudos to the folks at the Mallard Resort. It was a nice place to stay.
Back to our regularly scheduled programming. lol The Irishman is at work, the dogs are over their missing-us-ness, and the cats are almost ready to speak to us again. lol The chicken coop is cleaned and refilled and refreshed. The Garden is in dire need of weeding. Things have grown SO much in 5 days!!! I have one load of post vacation laundry washed and hung out to dry and the second load is almost ready. Then I have to drive to the city because my niece is in labor today and my sister is coming unhinged from lack of sleep. lol Not sure what I am supposed to do besides offer moral support, but I'll be there for a little while.
The drive home yesterday was about 9 hours, a little less. I am tired and achy, but mostly good. I am going to fix my sweetie some chicken fajitas for supper along with some home canned pintos and tortilla chips and salsa. It's about 85 today, a little hot, but not bad. Should dry the laundry nicely, as there's a good breeze whipping along.
The major house cleaning that hasn't been done in 5 days will have to wait until tomorrow. We got babies need birthin', Miss Scarlet !!
It is really good to be home.
