After a strange split season working at Luton’s Teton Cabins, we have arrived back in Wisconsin, a current “hot spot” for Covid infections. We are trying to decide what to do next, as the weather has turned unseasonably cold. Originally, we were hoping to stay in Wisconsin at least until the end of November, then head out in search of warmer weather.
We enjoyed working a split season, even though we originally had no plans of working at all. Normally by the end of the season, we are tired and ready to leave, but this year we stayed until October 8th. Karen and Al also stayed until the end of the season, as we had the busiest fall season ever. It was ironic that the four of us, who were not even supposed to be at Luton’s, were the last to leave. We all remain optimistic that Canada will eventually open up, and we can visit Alaska in 2021 (although they just extended the border closing through November 21.)
We had several excellent pot lucks during the month of September and into October, including two prime ribs roasts. Al, as usual, did an excellent job of cooking them. This was a 20 pound roast, cooked to perfection.
It’s back to doing some chores at Dan’s parents house in Wisconsin. We also have some medical appointments for Makena and I set up. And we are working on clearing out our belongings that we have stored in my sister’s attic. Other than that, we are just enjoying some down time for now. My cousin Caroline gave us a giant Northern Georgia Candy Roaster squash that she had grown in her garden. I think it weighs about 10 pounds.
We tried roasting some slices for about an hour, and it turned out delicious! Even if you don’t like squash, this particular style is very sweet and tasty. No brown sugar needed to improve the taste!
We are trying to decide where to go for the winter. A lot depends on how quickly we need to leave, but we are leaning towards heading back to Arizona for a few months. But we are also considering heading to Texas as well. It will all just depend on the weather.
That’s a wrap for now! Stay safe everyone.
