Ugh! It's only Wednesday! Oh well, the good news is I am going to the mountains this weekend. TLC The Hunter, his cousins, his cousins wife (who is one my best bud ever) The Hunters sister and all of our childrens are also going. We will be traveling to the lovely town (town is a strong word here) of Mineral, CA. It is just at the base of Mt. Lassen. The cousin's wife, (we'll call her Tam,) has a family cabin there. We haul our trailer up and park out side and every body else sleeps inside. It is a tight fit to be sure. We always have such a good time hiking and drinking and eating and drinking and shooting Beebe guns and drinking. After all that fun we usually have a fire in the pit, roast marshmallows and have a cocktail.
The Hunter is a planner. Me not so much. This fact drives him insane. So in lieu of redirecting his insanity to mildly crazy, the gals of the family decided to make THE PLAN to go to the cabin for mothers day (and the 24th anniversary of cousin Cat's 25th birthday)
Day one will start with us leaving early and heading to a fanTABulous restaurant called Granzella's for brunch. It's a super cute place with a country feel and a bunch of dead animals on the wall (right up The Hunters alley). Then we head up the road through Red Bluff, CA. (They have a great rodeo in case you were wondering) then up the side of the mountain. On day two we are going to Mill Creek. They have another charming diner and make super hamburgers and onion rings. (Hmm, does anyone else see a pattern here.) I am sure all the empty/spare time will be filled up with fishing and digging in the dirt. Sunday we will head home. Perhaps stopping at Mineral Lodge for Mothers day Breakfast. It's a good thing I belong to a gym. I am pretty sure this won't be a low calorie weekend.
I will be sure to post some pictures of all our adventures.
Totally of topic but more good news is The Hunter was accepted into the Operators Engineers (inspection division) apprenticeship program. This means he'll hopefully be back at work soon. Then we can all stop riding the crazy train around Nutsville.
