Sunday morning finds us saying goodbye to the lovely and talented lady of the house’s daughter and granddaughter after a wonderful two-day visit to the remote outpost along Wisconsin’s northern border. They headed south back to the southern part of the state, some six hours drive.
This was the first visit from any family to us since we arrived five years ago. Sometimes living off of the beaten path can be a blessing and a curse. Family is family, and while we don’t see eye to eye on all things, they are still family, and all had a good time. It was nice to catch up and chat about work and family things.
We were able to share a meal around the kitchen table, a first for us in the five years we’ve been in this house. The last time we had seen this part of the family was six years ago. And despite the wintery weather, we got to show them around our little part of eclectic and charming Wisconsin.
Now that the ice has been broken on family visits, maybe we will begin to see more family head to our remote outpost along Wisconsin’s northern border.
