Badgers, House, Yard and Family

Happy weekend, everyone.  Last night was more than a bit of a downer as the Badgers lost to the Spartans on a replay review on the final play of the game.  It was quite a big letdown, Wisconsin is now out of the BCS Championship hunt.  I don't expect the Packers to win all of their games, yet I do hope they make a good run to the Superbowl again.  The Badgers, on the other hand, could only hope to go undefeated and then still they may not have been considered for the national championship.  I would much prefer a playoff format, but you can read about and discuss that on other sites.

At the crack of dawn, Chuck was here to finish washing our house.  It's taken him a bit longer to finish than I would have thought, but I knew he was busy.  Yesterday my wife and I got a lot of things done in the yard and cleaned up the garden a bit, garden blog post coming soon.  I got the bushes in front of the house trimmed, mowed to mulch leaves again and pruned the lilac bush some more to encourage new growth in Spring.  My wife did some replanting and cleaned up the garden in addition to everything else she does on the weekends.  Later today I will have to run out to get some garden soil and manure to add some nutrients to the soil before we plant the garlic bulbs.

My grandma called me yesterday, she likes to check in every few weeks.  She was happy to hear that I was talking to my sister about coming down for a visit before the snow starts falling this winter.  Scheduling is the only difficult thing with football and my Sis working weekends right now, but I'm sure we will figure something out.  Sunday after Thanksgiving might be feasible, but hopefully we can get down there before then.  I know you read this, Sis, so let's get on the ball and figure something out!  Also, congratulations to my niece and nephew on their first Tae Kwon Do tournament!  It sounds like they had a lot of fun and it looks like they did very well!  Love you J & L!

The sun is shining though the weather is seasonably cool. Still, it's a nice day to get some more little outside projects done before the Packer game this afternoon.  My wife just got home from a late breakfast out with her dad and Chuck just finished up with the house so I best get going.  Have a great day, all!

Just about any weekend day (most preferably without a day football game that day) is fine. Let me know!
