Another Tuesday is Upon Us and and Yellowstone Trip-Next Week-Wow

Good morning everyone,
   This has been Such a few weeks for us. 

     With Hubs illness and then a couple days ago the passing of his father. So our emotions are all over the place.
   I decided not to join T For Tuesdays today as I may not be able to get around to everyone and really enjoy reading and commenting on all the posts.

   Last night I got invited by a friend to come over for grilled brats-such a wonderful evening with friends-the night was perfect too-warm no wind and a full moon. They have a huge pond and their property in the woods is kept up like a lovely park. Didn't get home til really late so had a good sleep as well.

   My father in law was 95 and he had quality of life until about a year ago-so we were preparing ourselves but is always a difficult time. Hubs needed to be there, so he drove up to the Chicago area and will be there for several days. We had friends that offered to go with but he said no.
   The sad thing about the beautiful place we live in, we always make sure someone is on the property do to all the thievery here and there is sooo much of it that it sickens me. Especially since this area is in the "bible belt".   If we would have known-but when you buy into a new area how would you know-we would not have settled here--but we do love our beautiful space here in the woods.

  Yesterday it dawned on me--Wow I am leaving on my Yellowstone Trip next week-how is that possible already?? lol  I am pretty much ready to go just need to get things packed and I need to buy a few clothes yet as I really don't have much in nicer clothes any more-especially since my size has changed over the last few years. 
  The one special highlight of my trip will be to meet my favorite author Peggy that writes the Yellowstone novels I had posted about previously. Her and husband will be camping in the park during a couple of the same days I will be there too. We will be doing a hike together on one of her favorite trails so I am very excited about that. There will be four of us taking the hike and we will all have our bear spray handy.

I probably will not post again til I return-Enjoy your May everyone.
