April 2021


So, in true Straka Family Vacation Curse fashion, we packed up the Jeep for the Arnold weekend ....drum roll.... the Jeep's battery was dead. We've had quite a few dead batteries during quarantine since, you know, we don't go anywhere. I got gas for the first time in a LONG while and I couldn't remember the card's zip. We headed up on Thursday, April 8 and returned on Sunday, April 11.

Anyhow, we got on our way and actually stopped in a restaurant with Pat and Stacey. El Jardin in Murphy's. First sit in a restaurant since quarantine! Stacey and I did some crossword puzzles. I hadn't done one in years! On Friday morning, we headed out to the trails.

Arnold Cabin

We found a couple of nice camp sites for future trips. Right on the water. Beautiful!

We were at 7,000 feet. There was snow. Lots of it.

We played a silly card game and I wrote these notes so that I could remember how to play it again. I can't even remember the names. Does this look familiar to anyone?

There was no Guest Room activity during April because the new flooring had to acclimate. And...I'll leave you with an April flower.

My name is Rosy, Chacha, Meez, Mama, Mother...take your pick. I am the sort of stay at home mother of 4. Sort of because of my Zumba and my Rodan and Fields jobs.

This is my personal blog intended for my family and friends and for anyone out there who enjoys a good laugh, likes to try out new recipes, likes kittens and loves Zumba. Welcome!

One of my favorite sites and one I'll be ideas from. (Hmmm. I already see my Nerd font is similar to hers. Hers is Edwardian Script and Mine is Beautiful ES.)

This is my nieces blog. She's cute: needs a facelift and makeover. I'll be working on that, too.

They need you.
