As much as I complain about Michigan (and I do; a lot!), there are definitely so many beautiful things that come with living on Lake Michigan. I am anxiously waiting for the leaves to start turning, (some already are), and then my camera and I will be taking daily road trips.
It has been unbearably hot and humid here.
Since I have been awake since 3am, which seems to have been my routine for more years than I can count, I figured it was a perfect day to get out and get some pictures. My favorite pictures have to be nature coated with dew, and wildlife, of course.
As much as I like these pictures, I certainly hope tomorrow finds me sleeping in. May you have a beautiful day as well!
I was certainly expecting some snow by the first day of Winter in West Michigan, considering right after Halloween we had a week of horrible storms, several inches of snow, and enough Blizzards that schools and businesses were closed.
So I was up early, as usual, and since I have not been out lately to get any pictures, I figured it would be a good day to go see what I could find.
It was freezing cold out, literally at 32 degrees F, and I am pretty sure I destroyed one of my favorite pairs of shoes when I was looking through the lens, and not at the water, and the waves nearly knocked me off my feet when they came roaring in well above my ankles.
I will definitely be wearing the rain boots the next time I venture out this Winter. Once the snow is significant enough, the roads down at the lake are all closed and I will not be able to get anywhere near it. There are definitely both ups, and downs, about living less than 10 minutes from Lake Michigan.
Hoping your Sunday is warm, and full of Blessings and Happiness! I plan on doing not a whole lot more than reading 🙂
…is all four of my daughters being in the same place at the same time. We all have such busy schedules that we literally have to schedule family time as well.
Autumn is looking beautiful in West Michigan, and I wish it would stay like this for the whole year.
Looking forward to a busy Monday off from work, thanks to an incompetent dentist and my crown falling off my tooth and out of my mouth yesterday. I really wish I could say this is the first time this ever happened, but it is not 😦
May your Monday be filled with Blessings and Sunshine!
1) Do your homework on Saturday.
2) Get your homeschooler’s work caught up on Saturday.
3) Make sure you have the basic necessities in the house before Sunday; you know, like milk, bread, toilet paper.
4) Make sure no one is going to call you asking for something (i.e. turn your phone off).
5) Don’t plan a road trip for Sunday.
6) Do not put of until tomorrow (Sunday) what you can do today (any of the 6 days prior to Sunday).
I have done an epic fail at this on this weekend. I have homework, my 13 year old has homework, I need to get groceries, I am hauling my 3 girls to meet my 4th daughter at her college campus so I can get (finally) some updated pictures of the 4 of them together.
At this point I see no need to turn off my phone, because I am not going to be relaxing today. I was on the road yesterday with a car full of kids, and get to do it again today. I need to get a weekend figured out where I truly have nothing to do, and nowhere to be. Hopefully before the snow flies.
Have a beautiful, Blessed Sunday!
