February 15, 2011

I'm still learning how to post things on this blog. I just posted pictures of our New Year's Dinner at Ken's house, pictures of the snow and ice around our apartment complex in the last "big one", and a couple taken last week when we were visiting our campground, for the first time since last September. The pictures aren't in good sequence, but I guess you can make sense of them.

It was good to get back to the trailer after being gone for so long. It was COLD outdoors but we were toasty inside, with a good furnace and an electric blanket. We are so grateful for the great insulation in this old quality-built trailer - so different from the new easy-to-tow lightweights of today. Mostly we just "chilled" as they say. Tom watched TV and I spent most of my time deleting old emails that pile up. And each afternoon brings a shower and soak in the hot tub and some socializing with other members.

Winter months are busy for us. Tom is busy with his NJGM Chorus and I'm working with several churches in our Presbytery, so we're visiting various churches on Sundays and there are meetings during the week as well. I'm on the Finance Committee of our Co-op, where we're looking into various investment options. It's a joy to see the sun earlier in the morning, and the darkness coming later in the evening. Summer will come! And we're looking forward to our summer garden plans.

For those interested in my hearing loss - I can see some improvement, but nerves take a long time to heal. Unfortunately, the middle tones of the organ are still absent, so what remains for me to hear is an unpleasant cacophony of tones having no relationship to "music."  Thankfully, I can hear voices, with my hearing aids. Other than this, our health is fine. (As I write this, I think Tom has Mac watching the Westminster Dog show - hoping he will pick up a few pointers on how a Cairn is supposed to behave.) We're also watching the development of Amendment 10A as it goes through the voting process and seems to be gaining ground. We're praying that it passes, this time. I'm active on Facebook these days, so I encourage you to find us there.
