She’s back!

Now don’t think that I forgot all about you. I haven’t.
But I have been busy doing nothing.
Well, not nothing. I have been brainstorming with myself about what to
tackle first in the cottages as soon as the snow is on its way out of here.
Mike quit his job in order to be here and work on making the cottages beautiful.
We are both very excited about that.

Do I hear a

WELCOME BACK

to me?

Right now, a huge snow storm is on its way across Lake Michigan.
Time to get back to my comfy chair,
put another log on the fire,
enjoy some *Russian (hot) Chocolate* and my kindle – yay

There is nothing better than snow on the ground and more snow falling from the sky.

True? – Opinions please.

See ya  in a couple of days

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.
