Hunkering Down and Family Time
My lovely wife and I are hunkering down at my daugher's place. Good to see her and her family after all these months. That's the one big downside of long term travel: grandkids grow fast.
We got here Friday night after a day of 70+ degree temperatures. Sunday it's supposed to snow. We'll probably try and stay until sometime on Monday. There's supposed to be freezing rain in the morning back home Monday. By the afternoon it's supposed to be just rain. That I can deal with. If we time it right, we'll avoid the ice part and just have rain.
There's one more leg of travel before we get home. Actually, we won't move into the house right off. We'll be staying with another daughter and her family in the town next to where we live for a bit. That will give me time to get the house opened up. I'd like to install a new water heater before starting up the water.
I have a lot to reflect on about this trip. We are kicking around a number of different ideas about the near future, next winter, and beyond. In the next few months there are a lot of home projects to attend to. That will keep me busy. My lovely wife and I have yet to figure out what we'll be doing next winter, but we have some ideas. More research is needed. Beyond that, we could end up doing anything.
Of course, like anyone else, we are subject to outside influences. We aren't immune to the turmoil in the rest of the world. Even simple things like minor changes in our health can make a big difference on what we do.
Enjoying our visits, but looking forward to being under our own roof again.
