A snowman’s prayer

It’s been too warm this week.  The snow is melting.

My first thought was to dismiss this photo, because it’s probably difficult to see
what I am talking about

On second thought, I’ll show it to you and see if you like it.
Can you see what I mean?  My entire back and front yards are still covered in snow,
even after the warm temps we’ve been having.
It glitters in the sunshine.

Someone walked out of the swamp and across the street to visit.
I can positively say that it was not a bear.
Looks more like it might have been a deer.
It came all the way up on the porch.

And there, quietly, sits the rhododendron waiting for its time to be colorful again.

Oh, look – something is already happening

Snowman’s Prayer: “Please freeze! Amen”

Time for some color

The weather is dreary once again. That’s fine.  I put color into my day by playing with my food.

The boys and I spent Sunday afternoon in Traverse City which always includes a trip to Meijer’s for me.  They have food!  They have the kind of food that we, here in Frankfort, can only dream of.  I am particularly fond of their produce department. Yumm.  I could spend hours in that place.  So, I stocked up on veggies and fruits.  And now I am turning those veggies and fruits into the most delicious juice.   Here is what I made this morning.

Carrots, apples, beets and Swiss chard – mm~mm~ good 🙂

Tie dye – not too appetizing yet, but wait until it’s all mooshed together :mrgreen:

.
There’s no recipe, only that I always include apples and carrots because they sweeten up the greens; the greens change from spinach to Swiss chard, to beet greens and parsley.

OMgosh, look at this sweet, red juice.

Monopoly

For the first time in a long time we played Monopoly.  Not just any Monopoly but Coast Guard Monopoly.

Ty was out at a friend’s birthday party and an overnight, Marc was here.
He did not need his arm twisted to play. That surprised me, he’s been a bear for the last year or so.

Then I tried to get some nice pictures of Mike and Marc but those two
Dinglefritzes kept making faces at the camera.
