Been Gallivanting!

This has been a busy week..
I wonder how I ever found the time to work, life as a retiree is jam packed..
Spent 2 days in Michigan with my daughter Sherry. We explored Utica, Sterling Heights and Auburn Hills, okay the reality is, we spent alot of time in malls and stores. We did get some Christmas shopping done.

Spoiled ourselves with a suite of rooms,
nice to have a lounging area separate from the bedrooms.
Relaxing with coffee planning our attack for the day.

What a treat, someone else to make breakfasts and suppers, make the beds, clean up ......

Did we get all our Christmas shopping done?
No! Oh , but we did manage to get just a few things for ourselves as compensation.
Home one day, then Festival by the Bay is on this weekend, craft dealers and local stores holding open houses for the holiday season. So girlfriend Carol and I did a mini tour to see what we could find. One of the most quaint stops we found is the Wood Shed set back in a wood lot.
Lots of bird feeders ,
bird houses , love the moss, what bird wouldn't love to live in this one?
old chairs ,
trunks, and my fav a Charlie Brown Christmas tree
Did we get much? A few little items , actually a couple more Christmas presents.
Note the date squares, yes, there was home baking for sale that we could absolutely not pass up.
A busy but fun week!
