Home again, home agin...clippety clop

 And here's my handsome husband with his great nephew, Ethan.  This child was the star of the weekend show. lol  I don't think I've seen a happier baby in my life.

  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:

 The little campground was very nice, the cabins were cozy and clean. The bed was surprisingly comfortable (even for me) and we had a good time there.  

This was our cabin. #2

 The great room
The Kitchen

The bedrooms.

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.

A trip is always fun, but coming home is the best part. I laughed at the description of your cats. Ain't it the truth? :-)

I'm so glad you had a good trip--apparently despite some rudeness. What a sweet cabin! Can tell you are glad to be home. Wonderful feeling. :)

I am always happy to be home after a trip.
I am glad that most of the trip was enjoyable for you.

Welcome back! What a beautiful part of the country. Best of luck with the birthin', Mizz Scarlet. Let us know how it goes. And that baby is adorable!

There is nothing quite as heart warming as a handsome rugged man holding a baby.
