Sacramento Again

It has been too long since I visited my sister in Sacramento, so this morning after breakfast at the Wigwam (got lucky with the free-play coupon, free breakfast, yay!) and after confirming that Lisa was too worn our from yesterday's home improvement work, I headed off for Sacramento. This is a trip that I can do it one day — it is only half the distance to the Bay Area, and thus the round-trip is only like when I drive to the Bay — but it always leaves me pretty tired.

I spent a couple of hours with my sister, discussing both business and pleasure. She has put the various postcards I've sent her from around the world up in her portion of her ward. She and I discussed places she was able to go before she got too sick to travel.

Visiting Kelli was the only purpose for today's trip, so other than stopping for dinner in Auburn and swinging by the grocery store on the way home, I didn't do much else today. When I got home, Lisa showed me that she had unloaded the wood box (preparatory to replacing the lid and repainting it) while I was gone. She even moved the energy logs into the garage in case it happens to rain. We had a tiny bit of drops in the past couple of days, but the energy logs dissolve in water, so it was good of her to get them under cover while we prepare the wood box for winter.

Tomorrow I have few plans, other than to help Lisa with the wood box repairs if necessary.
