Back Home in Michigan

Last Sunday afternoon, after spending a wonderful 2 days with Darlene and Kathy in Denver, we headed for Michigan, driving straight through, arriving home before noon. We had planned to stay on the road Sunday night but a bad weather forecast prodded us on. It was no fun, but we took turns driving and managed to stay awake. It's was a great trip but I always love to come home where I get more writing (and painting) done. Tomorrow we'll stay at the loft (above the barn at Carlton Gardens) overnight with a crackling fire to keep us warm. We don't have much business in the winter months but we both get a lot of work done. Here's a bird house John built yesterday and that I painted this afternoon---made to look kind of like a broken-down shack.
