Kathryn took Dakota and Izzabella to an overnight in Rochester. They joined other Skelly’s to watch Pat’s daughter, Nicole, perform her Renaissance Faire routine, The Gwendolyn Show, as part of a benefit. They stayed in a hotel and did some shopping on Saturday before returning home.
For Christmas Eric got me a card game called “Exploding Kittens” and we have really been enjoying it. Well, the exploding kitten part isn’t great, but we still like the game. It’s a little like “Old Maid” where you don’t’ want to receive an Exploding Kitten card.
You may remember long-term St. John resident and sailor Peter Muilenburg. He had the sailboat, The Breeze, that we used on our St John’s vacation. I think we went to his house after our sailboat ride. I remember dropping one of his hand-carved chess pieces onto the stone floor. He passed away recently.
Eric is off school until 6 January. He played in a Christmas basketball tournament. His team lost one game and won one game. Thankfully, practice gets him out of the house.
Eric and I have been battling being congested and coughing. I had a dentist app’t and was medicated enough that I didn’t cough on the hygienist.
We have lost all our snow. We have had warm days / nights and it rained starting yesterday through the night. Kathryn, Billie Jo and Dakota leave at the end of this week to go to Seattle for several days.
