Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our other wheels. When we are not vacationing check in for updates, although less frequent, about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

A New Year A New View

Point of view that is!

That being let's stop letting Covid take over our mindset. That doesn't mean not acknowledging it.

January was a crazy month as we determined WE ARE GOING SOUTH!! WOOHOO

So now we navigate the packing, the birthdays we need to celebrate that we will be missing, and how to fit my work and trips to Saskatoon.

But we are old hands at this and the flow returns.

We had trips to make and dates to be had prior to our approximate end of the month departure.

First for me was the start of celebrating my 60th birthday! My dear friends Anais and Maria whisked me off to Canmore for a girls weekend. We did not pursue any crazy activities other than long walks, and actually stayed in the condo mostly, laughing talking eating drinking binge watching TV and even working! For the 3 of us it was just what we love.

You know you have raised your kids well when they grow to be loving and caring woman. Between Don and the girls I had the most special family day to celebrate my BIG birthday! One of my favorite meals, chocolate cake, an amazing gift and best of all everyone together in one place! We have always appreciated that part, but this pandemic makes it all the more special after almost 2 years of not being able to gather.

Then Don and I were off to Tisdale. We really wanted to see Mom as Covid and the world in general had hindered that for a while. We were so lucky while there to have a dinner with all of Don's siblings!

After the quick trip to Tisdale we were off! I'll let you know how this goes! See you in February.
