Yep, it’s the old “Good Thing My Head Is Attached” Syndrome (GTMHIA). On my last post I mentioned Marti had decorated the Journey inside and out and then I forgot to put in the inside pictures.
So here goes. Our little tree on the steering wheel table.
The dashboard has our ever color changing snowman and some caroling figures.
Even Tag, our stuffed dog is sporting a Santa hat. Nobody gets left out around here when Marti has her Christmas decorating cap on.
Our Journey is warm and comfortable and really has become “home” for us. We appreciated it more this week when we slept over at our daughter Heather’s house for several nights. She had a minor surgical procedure that kept her off her feet for most of the week. With two high energy boys, it was good that we could help out, we’re glad our full time life has enabled us to be here when she needed us. But it’s always nice to come home to your own bed. :c)
Once again, we took the boys out geocaching. Today we struck gold, four finds in four tries. One even had Marti jumping across a big ditch to get to the wooded area where one cache was located. No, she didn’t fall in, she used a big stick to kind of pole vault across it and back. Amazing what a grandmother will do with her grandsons.
These caches are pretty cleverly hidden. Owie found one by himself, he’s pretty proud of that, especially when this cache defeated us before.
Another one was very hard to find, but patience won out.
Sweet Victory! Geocaching is a great thing for us to do with the boys. It’s a great sport that doesn’t cost anything, gets everyone outside in the fresh air and isn’t a video game. We’ll be doing more of this with them. I don’t know who loves it more, the boys or Marti.
The weather has been great, high sixties during the day and nightly lows into the high forties. For Marti and I, both growing up in the Northeast (MA and NJ, respectively) this is positively a balmy climate.
Thankfully, we’ve just about finished the Christmas shopping, so now we can kick back and putter around the Journey, doing some minor tasks and reorganizing some things.
Life is good. :c)
