A productive weekend, at least on the chores end of things. On the photographic art side of things, I did manage four studio still life floral shots. All the gardens are planted, weeded, and the lawn is done. The batteries are charging on the boat and I will do further cleaning and prep work on her this week for when Eric comes, Thursday through Tuesday. We will be going out to Butch and Janes, neighbors of Tom and Sharon, for holiday cookout and get together on Monday. All the area residents (due to the wilderness nature of the area, their homes are miles apart) usually do the major holidays there and I have done so as well since meeting Tom a number of years ago. Jane actually drove my RAV 4 home from Marshfield when I had my cancer surgery a year ago, so Eric could transport me. Almost all the folks at the get together are like me, not yoopers by birth, but long time transplants who sought the beauty and solitude of the northwoods.
