Where is this year going?! It's almost February. We've had a good few days since we got home. Monday we headed over early to Reno for Ken's glaucoma appointment. All good news his pressures were 16 and 17! Yay! The eye drop is working! Last appointment the bad eye was 23 and now 17. He goes back the end of July.
|Eric and Christina gave us this pic of Seth and a few others for Christmas.
Gets me every time I look at it. Ken hung it today
(well, he hung it before but it didn't stay.) The picture is straight.think my
camera was crooked!
After that we headed over to Total Wine and then to Winco to get some groceries. We ran by Lowe's for a couple of shower heads too. We thought we'd go ahead and drive over to Minden and hit up Carson Valley Inn as we hadn't been there in awhile. There were hardly any cars in the parking lot..gee what's up with that. They had a buffet going in one of the rooms downstairs, but turns out they're changing out their kitchen appliances so Katie's was closed. Darn, they re open the 1st. Now what? Back to Carson and Betsy's Big Kitchen. There just aren't too many choices that we like, but what we like we really like. :)
|We had a beautiful sunset..Karen captured it..
Lisa was there and took really good care of us as usual. Then we headed home. Unloaded groceries and then just took it easy as the day was done. :)😊
Tuesday we were basically home. I pulled apart my kitchen and got rid of a wheelbarrow full of stuff I don't need. It was to the point my cabinets were such a mess I didn't even know what I had and didn't. Put some new tupperware like stuff in that I bought at Black Friday Once that mess was cleaned up I ran to the post office to get a mailing box for Seth's stuff.
Ken took John's trailer and went and got some wood for Karen for the fire pit. He moved the cab over to the concrete. I checked it out and it looks ready to go.
Today, (Wednesday) was a baking day for Seth. I got some cookies done and packed :) Ken worked most of the day outside finding plenty of stuff to do along with a load to the dump. We don't pay for garbage so about once every 6 weeks or so he'll take 6 garbage cans to the local dump for $10.00. We're hoping that doesn't change but we're hearing rumors.

gotten carried off by the wind

|Double Chocolate Chip
Still writing letters and hoping we get Jacob's address soon. Seems longer to me than 2 weeks but it really hasn't been long over that. I remember Seth's took about 2 weeks to get. Hurry up and wait!
It's been 20 years since I've done care packages. When Russell was on float I used to send them once a week but that was 20 years ago. I think I did pretty good at filling every nook and cranny in Seth's. Hopefully he likes it too! I'll mail it in the am before getting my hair cut finally!
|Before the final finishing..
|Every nook and cranny filled!
Ken's going to bar b q some burgers in a bit and I've got some oven fried potatoes to go with them. I was going to do zucchini fries or broccoli tots, but I'm thinking I'm too lazy now! Oh well.
