I’m up in Michigan on vacation this week, having a great time. The weather is fantastic, in the low to mid 60s during the day, and Erika’s getting her first experience of the summers here. Beats the daylights out of the winters. I went to high school here in Whitehall, on the coast of Lake Michigan, and I have a lot of nice memories of the area. We forgot to bring the digital camera, so I’ll have to post photos later after we get them developed.
We’re helping Dad and Caryl stain the cedar for the outside of the new addition to their house. They added a garage with a workshop, a half bath, utility room, and more space to the living room. Seeing this stuff in action gets me and Erika that much more excited about getting a house. We picked out a floor plan at the newest Perry Homes development inside the loop, and now we’re working out the mortgage details. Caryl’s got a lot of home-planning magazines, so we’ve been looking at different color schemes for the new house.
