Pere Marquette Beach Sunset…

…October 17, 2018; Lake Michigan.

As much as I complain about Michigan, and it is a lot, I am lucky to live less than 10 minutes from this beautiful lake. There are so many wonderful parks around us, and my girls and I spend a lot of time at them. The leaves are pretty much completely changed and already falling off the trees; this is not the long Autumn season I was hoping for. I am absolutely dreading Winter, especially after the triple ankle break in January and 11 weeks trapped in my house 😦 If you did not have the pleasure of seeing that horrible image, you can check out the post here:Β Well Doesn’t This Just Suck…

I am getting an opener put on my garage door today, and still have to buy a snowblower. I have not gotten my front steps fixed that I slipped down, but everyone knows to not use my front door.

So on a happier note, here are some sunset pictures. Up next; what has been going on with me and my 2 youngest daughters; the 14 year old the only one at home and pushing all my buttons πŸ™‚

The Flowers are Starting to Bloom!

Published May 23, 2018 by Angela

Not any of the 30 plants I just planted, of course. I fear I will be waiting years to see that; if the squirrels stop digging up my bulbs and moving them.

But after a year in my house, and I planted nothing last year because I wanted to see what was here, I am glad to see I have many perennials!

And I had to move my bird feeder from my front windows where the squirrels would just walk right up and feast. I moved it to a side living room window, which my cats finally discovered they could stalk from my bedroom window. Benjamin and Franklin; my two toddler boys I never had πŸ™‚

Get a Grip Michigan!

Published April 14, 2018 by Angela

It is April 14th, the middle of April, nearly a month beyond the start of Spring, and we are under a Winter Storm Warning. It is non-stop raining right now, with temperatures dropping below freezing later this afternoon, and then the freezing rain begins. They are predicting up to an inch of ice by tomorrow 😦 Which for myself means, as soon as it starts freezing, I am not leaving the house.

I am really hoping we do not lose power, but flashlights and batteries are good to go. I thought by now I would be cleaning up the leaves out of my yard and planting new flowers and shrubs.

After 11 weeks of being in my house with a broken ankle, I am well beyond ready for some sunshine, and warm, fresh air! In the meantime, I have a blanket I need to finish crocheting, a book to finish reading, and a paint-by-number that hasn’t had any attention in a couple weeks!

Some of my favorite flower photos! Has Spring sprung for you yet?
