A view of the chaos, from above.
I also got to sit in the recliner, which is the one spot Sandy is allowed to climb up on. So between Sandy and the blanket, I was extra warm. Best seat in the house, IMO.
Very slow day overall. Took a nap in the late afternoon, and that pretty much summed up the pace for the day.
Mid-morning today, I was down in the basement with Kirt helping to set up the Super Chexx machine. For all the time I’ve spent playing this game, this was my first time actually touching the puck (pretty cool).
I didn’t end up taking a lot of photos this weekend. I was planning, originally, to start that sentence with “sadly” but I’m wondering now if this was a bad thing. I ended up enjoying the moment more, and wasn’t as focused on trying to document the moment.
Around the tree in the sitting room, Kirt had set up an old model train track. The train cars themselves were all pretty substantive, and suggested to me this was an old set.
We left a little early this week, to spend a long weekend in Whitehall, MI, with Kirt and Anne at their new lakehouse. Liz and I both worked from home on Thursday, then hit the road around 4PM.
Liz, getting some quality time with Sandy.
The ladies, checking out some family photos on Tricia’s laptop. For some reason, my iPhone added this extra blur/gauze to things and this looks like a ridiculous stock photo.
After arriving, we got a tour of the new place. And ended up in the basement, watching a bit of TV. We ended up sitting at the basement bar, watching the second half of “It’s a Wonderful Life” – which was a nice thing to do, as we were visiting for our “Early Christmas” celebration.
Liz and I travelled to Atlanta this weekend, as an early holiday visit. We took an earlier flight than we normally do, which was nice as it allowed us time to have dinner with everyone, and to hang out a bit afterwards.
