It has been a hectic two months. My LJ time had dwindled to where I can barely see what all of you are up to.
Starting in late June, we took the whole family to my nephew’s wedding. A great time was had by all.
Two weeks later my brother, sis-in-law and niece spent a few days camping with us on the Oregon coast. We had a great time.
However, during that time, my mother became ill. I had shared about a year ago that she was diagnosed with cancer. Things were going well until she developed this infection which evolved into pneumonia.
We cut our camping trip short and flew to see her. After a few days, thing were looking kinda stable so we flew home. A few days later she passed. Another set of flights for the funeral and all that goes with it.
I got back with one day to spare before I got to go charter fishing in Sitka Alaska for 3 days. Had a wonderful time. Limited out every day and finished 2-3 hours early. Even hooked a 120 lb halibut
On top of all this, I had just changed jobs at work and was only starting to settle in when everything happened.
I am finally finding time to start participating in LJ’s, but not as much as I would like.
I have an update to my kitchen stool blog ready to go, just need to write it up.
I figured some of you might want to know where I went…
