Quite the change in the weather today but I suppose the fact that it is still March it should have been expected particularly from those of us who have spent any amount of time living in the Northwoods. I have to admit; even though we anticipated a bit more of the cooler weather I still (like so many others) jumped the gun a bit. We have already cleaned out and “summerized” our wood stove, the patio furniture is out and in use (same with the grill) and just this past weekend Dick put away the snow blower and took out the garden tractor and the two of us spent a few hours getting the motorcycles ready for the season, batteries are in, fluids are good and they are cleaned and polished and ready to hit the highway BUT we have proved to be long-time residents because the bikes are still in the garage and have been re-covered up, the plastic is still on the windows in the house and no outdoor planting has begun! Soon enough we will be able to enjoy all the benefits (and busyiness) of the summer season but for now we will still have to pace ourselves.
This past weekend we also took time to sit down with the owner of the resort where we are getting married to finalize details of the reception and any last minute questions we had regarding the meal, music, décor, lodging for guests, ceremony location, etc. were put to rest. There is still much to do and the window of time to get it done is getting smaller all the time, but being able to put closure to some of the “nagging details” has allowed me to renew my promise to keep my anxious “stressarella” tendencies to a minimum :).
Beyond that, we have so many things planned for this year here at the station that it promises to be as busy a summer as we’ve had (and THAT is saying a lot!) Be sure to stay tuned just to keep up with all of it or check our website regularly as we will have everything listed on there including our upcoming Business Expo at the end of April.
Well, gotta go for now, Bruce Marcus is done with the newscast and it’s time for me to take my place behind the microphone for the morning show and don’t forget to come out to the Brown Barn Bath Company in Minocqua today, I will be broadcasting live from 11-2 and they are having all items in the store 20% off for today only!
