We are pretty well settled into our motel suite at the Towneplace Marriott in Novi, Michigan.  I have finished physical therapy but still go to the pool to do my exercises and enjoy the hot tub.

Bob is enjoying his work.  He works five-and-a-half days a week and then spends Saturday afternoon and Sunday resting up.

Bob and Patty rest up for a new week

I keep busy running errands, doing laundry, and generally enjoying myself.  I am taking a class on Wednesday evenings on Microsoft Word, Excell and PowerPoint. 

Outside of our window is the pond where we can watch birds every day.  We have seagulls, Canadian Geese, Swans and today I saw a Sandhill Crane.

Our swans.

Swan - I'm thinking it's a young one?

It was hard to catch them both with their heads up!

Stretching his wings


I was walking Patty when I saw what I think is a Crane.


Here he’s on the other side of the pond.

The Crane is across the pond from the geese.

Well, that’s about all for now.  I’ll try to get some pictures when we take a road trip.  Be well, all.
