A Nice 3-Day weekend

You know, sometimes you just need an extra day off during the week… This week, I was lucky enough to score a Friday! 

Before I get into that, the important stuff first.  Michelle and I are happy and healthy, and yep still employed! We made sure to get our flu shots last month, and even though we are back in a Covid shutdown for a couple of weeks, we are making the most of it. 

We have already decorated for Christmas 

And in our backyard, Frosty the snowman is holding auditions for Santa’s Sleigh Team. 

We even went out for dinner the day before the shut down began. Tidal Raves in Depoe Bay has done an excellent job keeping people separated and safe, and who would miss a sunset like this?

So all in all, we are doing well! 

But I still wanted an extra day off! Continue reading “A Nice 3-Day weekend”

That was me this morning… Continue reading “Plan B comes to an end..”

The perfect day to hang out in the room!

So there I was last night, fast asleep. And when I snooze, I snooze HARD! However, along about 11:30 my eyes snapped open. Outside the wind was howling, the waves were crashing and a storm was raging. The hotel we are in keeps flood lights on so you can always see the waves.

I laid in bed for a bit and saw that the wind was blowing so hard, that sand was blowing higher than our room past our balcony. We are on the second floor. I jumped out of bed, and went on the deck in just my underwear (OK, TMI, but I did) and saw the ocean was roiling! I dove back into bed to warm up and I was back asleep… Continue reading “The perfect day to hang out in the room!”
