Wisconsin Time

Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. 
Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, 
and appreciate where you are at this moment 
instead of always focusing on how far you have to go.
~Mandy Hale

We are enjoying our time with some members of my family in Wisconsin.

First, let me share some pictures of my oldest brother and his wife's tree house. Here is the first floor porch;

the first floor inside sleeping area;

the stairway to the second floor of the treehouse;

the second floor - the ceiling is lower to stay within code;

the second floor front wall and door leading to the deck;

This is the treehouse from my next-oldest brother's yard, 3 houses away.

One of our grandsons (Guitar Man) attended the Shell Lake Arts Center Guitar workshop this week. 

Our grandson and his dad stayed with my next oldest brother and was a commuter student to the camp. He spent most evenings fishing with his dad and his great-uncle. Last night we all enjoyed Guitar Man's FishFry and helped eat all of the fish these guys caught.

We took a few pictures after dinner but were in some shadows so they aren't the best.

Today we enjoyed the final concert of the week for the Guitar Workshop. In addition to group songs, all of the musicians had solos and one of Guitar Man's was a medley of 5 songs including one of his original compositions. #ProudGrandparents

Now people are dispersing. We'll stay in the area with my oldest brother and his wife and my next oldest brother - they all live here - for a few more days. By noon tomorrow, everyone else will already be home or headed that way. 

Health update - I'm hanging in there. I really dislike the meds and the feel-good/not-so-feel-good days. I'm hoping a little more rest tonight and tomorrow will help. At least there's been no anaphylaxis. #Only7MoreDaysWithMeds 


  1. I love following along on your trips. Glad you are not experiencing the severe symptoms you've had in the past. These pictures are gorgeous and so peaceful!

  2. Glad to hear you are enjoying family so much! And that tree house is amazing! Hopefully today is a feel good day and before you know it, you’ll be done with those meds. Take care!

  3. What a neat tree house! The fish fry looks great with lots to eat. Glad to hear you are doing better. Know it seems a long week with the meds, but boy they did the trick to keep you safe. Enjoy the rest of your family time.
