After visiting with our son on the 4th of July, we headed back to our spot on the Tippi River. We arrived and got set up around 3pm. The weather was so nice and the river so peaceful. We were glad we had made the decision to spend the weekend here at the river. July 5th we each had some small jobs to accomplish. Bill went to the stick house--he decided he'd better mow the lawn. I stayed at the river. We have some scrape wood pills that need to be cleaned up so I spent the day sawing up wood and burning. Needless to say, we were both pretty tired by the end of the day. Sunday the 6th we packed up and headed in to the stick house. We plan on splitting our time between the stick house and our "real" home on the river. We will spend weekdays working on the stick house and weekends relaxing at the river. Anyway, that is the plan we will see how well it works.
Monday, the 7th, I spent the day at the hospital with my mother and stepfather. Stepfather is having surgery. It was a long day, but all went well. I got home around 10pm. Mom spent the night at the hospital. I go back today and hopefully will be bringing them both home. I was glad to be there for them both, but boy do I miss the road!
