Just Another Ramble

November 3, 2017

Guys…it’s cold here. It’s been 4 years since I lived in a place that actually gets winter and I’m not sure this California girl is ready for such cold weather.

A few weekends ago, Michael, Olga and I went out and enjoyed what was probably the last nice weekend of the year. We went on a full day adventure exploring southwest Wisconsin and had a great time. We saw beautiful things, random things and hilariously funny things. I’m so glad I have such great adventuring buddies out here.

Can’t tell from this picture, but that bird in the upper left is a bald eagle.

Farms are everywhere out here.

One of our more interesting finds: the Grotto of the Holy Ghost

After MANY stops, we finally made it to the Mississippi River.

Now that the weather is cold, however, I feel my adventuring days are going to be severely limited. The cold just makes me want to go home or stay home, and either bundle up and do nothing or else just sleep. And I hate that. I don’t want to sleep away my life! I’m realizing that I could never live in Greenland or someplace that has long, dark winter months. It’s going to be challenging to stay active out here.

But, I do have a few trips coming up to look forward to. Next week I will finally be picking up some new US states! I can’t even remember the last time I visited new states. Honestly. I’ll be driving for the Cross Country teams here at MBU next week, as well as doing some photography, so I’ll get to visit Missouri and Mississippi with them.

Then for some new, big news, one of the girls here and I will be (Lord wiling) heading to South Korea next Feb with an Olympics Outreach team! I’m beyond excited about that. Especially since I was so close to the last winter Olympics in Sochi and didn’t make it down there, boo. Keep us in your prayers as we raise funds and prepare for that!

My last trip this year and into next year will be heading home to California for Christmas on Dec 22. I am ecstatic about that. I cannot wait to see my family and especially those nieces and nephews. It’s going to be awfully hard to leave the sunshine, warmth, and family of California to head back to cold, dreary Wisconsin. I’m already dreading it and I haven’t left yet. =(

So….there’s an update for you. Happy weekend, friends!
