Michael’s turn to cook breakfast this morning and he did a mighty fine job!  Over easy eggs, bacon and toast.  Great way to start the day! A while back Michael reinforced our dining room chairs bottoms with upholstery tacks as the original staples were pulling out.  Not long ago we noticed that the bottom of Michael’s … Continue reading »

First Day On The Job

I met Debra & Allison at the gatehouse at 12:30 this afternoon to go over what they want/need me to do while we’re here at Ocean Pond Campground.  Everything is pretty laid back and there’s no set schedule of hours to work or where to work.  Being an ultra-organized person that’s gonna be tough for … Continue reading »

Who’da Thought We’d Meet Woody Woodpecker?

We noticed a truck go by the house after hours and wondered how they got in passed the locked gate.  As they came back passed the house Michael chatted with them and found out that they were contractors with the forestry service and that about 6:30 they were going to come back by on their … Continue reading »

Looming Government Shut Down

I spent the day preparing to go back to ‘work’.  It may not be 40 hours (about 25) and it may not be paid but I’ll still be gone from home and I don’t want things to fall by the wayside.  Michael says he’s going to become a ‘domestic god’ but for the past 28 … Continue reading »
