More Pure Michigan

Tonight we were at the annual Convention and Visitors Bureau Dinner at Crystal Mountain.  We had great cocktails, fantastic food and a really good speaker Dave Lorenz.   Anyway, he’s with Pure Michigan and he showed us the three new local commercials for this year’s campaign.  My very own husband is in one of them, fly fishing.   I have pictures to prove it 😆

Cool, isn’t it?  I took pictures of the pictures that were displayed, hence the quality…

Coffee at the Wayfarer

A cup of coffee!

I went grocery shopping today. Whilst putting all the new stuff away, I had to shuffle around some of the old stuff.  And of course, a bag of ground coffee fell onto the stove. The stove got excited and turned on and burned a huge hole into said bag.  I lifted the bag off the stove and all the coffee spilled everywhere




Ok folks, that’s all.  I thought someone might be interested in today’s disaster.  Everyday something else…


Oh and before I forget it,  those curtains I made for cottage 3 yesterday – measure twice and cut once is a something to think about!
Yes, they are too short




Have a great cup of coffee to start your day!

What did the Neighbor call it?

It has rained a little the last two mornings.  The grass is growing and it looks a lot like SPRING

Today is the day to begin the real clean-up at the Wayfarer.  This means getting the big branches off the cottage roofs, rake up what can be raked up, drag it all to the huge burn pile in the back 40. But there needs to be fun mixed in as well…

The neighbor calls it a Redneck campfire 😆

There’s at least one wanna-be redneck in the group

And look,  there, among all the debris sits this singular daffodil…

Happy Spring Break!

Spring Has Sprung at the Wayfarer!

Alright, after our short winter two weeks ago, it’s now officially spring and to my surprise, the daffodils are blooming already.
Yes, yes, only one or two so far but pretty unusual nonetheless.

!Excuse me!

It is only March 20th.  Our sweet daffodils don’t bloom until mid May.
What will this mean in the way of summer weather?  Maybe I should go ahead trust that this will be one of those summers that comes along only once in a blue moon.

Happy Spring everyone!

Winter Storm 2012

Having taken another long break, due partially to having misplaced my camera again…

I am here today, finally, to show you some amazing pictures.  Until yesterday, we didn’t have enough snow all winter to make a decent snowball.

But!! Friday oh Friday, after the daffodils had already put out some feelers and the lilacs shown some buds, it snowed and snowed and snowed.

The neighbors down in Elberta called to tell me that their house is on fire and that they are coming over to make sure their 80 some year old mom, 18-year-old son and Wally the dog would be safe.  And that’s where I got a glimpse of the devastation around our house.

Without further ado, pictures:

This morning there was no snow anywhere to be seen. 

I don’t have a good picture but some of the pine trees in the front yard have lost all their north facing branches.  It looks like someone sliced them off.

Having said all that, I am very sad for all the people in Indiana and Kentucky that have had much devastation and loss of life.
