Poker Run

Well, today we had good intentions of participating in a motorcycle poker run to benefit the Humane Society. My friend, Heidi, came with us. But, we got down to Merrill, Wisconsin and the sky grew blacker and blacker and it started to rain so we turned around and came back north. We rode through Irma, Tomahawk, then to Crandon and Three Lakes, where we ate lunch. We stopped at a cute gift shop just south of Eagle River called the Evergreen Cottage. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but it was worth the stop. They had lots of really cute things including quilts. We headed north to Eagle River where we stopped to put on our rain suits because the sky was getting dark. We got rained on for about 5 -10 minutes so it wasn't too bad. We ended up riding around 225 miles today. It was a great time.

Now I'm off to scrap while hubby watches the Nationwide race. We can't watch races together because he says I talk too much and he just wants to watch!

Until next time...

Completed Addition!

Since we had to replace the entire roof from the storm that hit in July, we decided to add "up". We started the addition the end of September 2007 and it was pretty much finished by December 2007. The colors didn't come out too good in the photos. The living room is a rich terracotta color and the bedroom is a peachy color with a deep burgundy stripe. We love the additional space and my favorite thing to do now is to enjoy a cup of coffee on Saturday or Sunday morning while relaxing in the loft area. You can see the lake from there and it is so tranquil and beautiful. It's been finished for a while, but I've been lax in posting here.

Until next time...
