We are ready to put 2020 in our rear view mirror. This week, Julia celebrated her 60th birthday. Mine is coming up in a few weeks.
Julia's sister gets credit for the party favors. I baked the cake from a cake mix box. One time, I tried a cake from scratch and it looked more like chocolate flat bread. The party was just for the immediate family, but it was nice to have both Allie and Justin home for the event. Allie heads back to California at the end of the week.
Justin plans to go back to college during the third week of January. There are still some caregiver issues to sort out, but things are much more promising than last fall. Justin has good priority for the vaccine, but things are rolling out slower in Wisconsin than some states. UW-Whitewater has done a good job keeping its virus numbers low after a rocky beginning.
My knee has not been right since the fall at Wildcat Mountain State Park a couple of weeks ago. I've been limping around and staying out of the woods. I'm pretty sure that I stretched or strained that ligament above the right knee on the right side. It has felt better the last few days. The knee hurts the most when I get up from sitting. After walking around for awhile, it feels fine.
Callie and I hiked both the Lodi Marsh and Gibraltar Rock this week.
