Finally Some Golf

We had planned on going golfing a couple of times, but each time the weather turned out to be worse than predicted so we didn’t go. On Friday we finally had a nice day to get out on the course for the first time this year.

We didn’t golf at all this winter. I don’t like to go to courses I’m not familiar with, and I don’t like to pay a lot either. Last year Kevin went by himself and with some friends. This year he didn’t get out at all after we left Wisconsin.

So, it had been since late last September since either one of us played. I was expecting a terrible round. On the first hole, I had a one over par. Things were looking good. Overall, I ended up with a decent game. I had one bad hole, and my drives weren’t all that good. But, for the first time out in over seven months, I was happy. Kevin struggled a bit. At least he got it out of his system.

I forgot my camera, and wouldn’t you know it we saw a family of herons. I don’t know what kind they were, but they had a red patch on top of their head. I’ve never seen that before. There were two parents and two babies. What an awesome site.

The weather has gotten better. We haven’t had much rain over the last week. Things are starting to dry out. There are still some very wet areas in the park.

About half of our sites are occupied this weekend. Summer must be here because we have our first tenters and a few pop-ups. Wood sales have been brisk as it’s still dipping into the low 50s at night. I’m glad the weather is decent this weekend for the campers.

I’m volunteering again at Beaver Dam Hospital this year. Last year I rocked babies at their daycare center. This year I thought I’d try something new. I’ll be spending four hours every Wednesday afternoon at the 2nd floor reception desk. Mostly, I show ladies where to undress for mammograms and make reminder phone calls for upcoming appointments.

Tomorrow we’re meeting my family at a restaurant for Mother’s Day. No cooking for the mothers in this family :)

A very Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there in blog land. Enjoy your day and relax!
