Snowy Day

A snowstorm is ushering in December. Personally, I find the snow beautiful. The roads are not as beautiful right now. We actually had freezing rain first. But, I am fortunate enough to be able to stay home today.

Until next time…peace

Happy Thanksgiving

I just want to wish everyone who is celebrating today, a very Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you get to spend the day with lots of food and your loved ones (including your four-legged family members).

Thank you for following my blog and viewing my photos. I love all the positive input I receive.

Until next time…peace

Silver Bells in the City

Over this past weekend, I attended the annual event, Silver Bells in the City which held at our state’s capitol in Lansing, Michigan. The event marks the start of the Christmas season with a tree lighting ceremony. And, yes, being in Michigan, the weather is cold for this event. But I absolutely love the light parade, tree lighting, and fireworks over the capitol.

Sometimes, braving the cold is a necessity. I find singing Christmas carols with complete strangers while standing in the middle of the street a great way to start the holidays.

Is there an annual event in your area to celebrate the Christmas season? I would love to hear about it.

Until next time…peace

 

The Silence of Winter at Sunset

Yes, I know it is not officially winter. But the mid-Michigan weather suggests otherwise. We have been experiencing frigid temperatures. Anyone who follows this blog knows I love sunsets (and sunrises). So I still think the caption is fitting.

Have a wonderful day.

How’s the weather in your area?

Until next…peace

Happy National Cat Day

“What a greater gift,

than the love of a cat”

Charles Dickens

 

Today, October 29th is National Cat Day. I currently have six cats. Some days, I wonder about them. I think they are plotting against me. (Just kidding)

Each one of them has a unique personality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But, my old house would be quiet (and neat) without them.

Do you have any cats?

 

Happy International Raccoon Appreciation Day

I did not know there was an entire day dedicated to raccoons. Don’t let those cute little faces fool you, raccoons are pesky little creatures.

To keep them from destroying my bird feeders, I actually have to grease the poles. I must look like a right fool out there greasing the poles to my bird feeders. But the silly process works.

Columbus Troop 115: Gavins Point or Bust

I absolutely y love this picture. I wish I could find someone who could give me more information.

In my opinion, I think these boys are getting ready to go on a camping trip to Gavins Point. When I research Gavin Point, I come up with a couple different locations. I do not know precisely where the Columbus Troop 115 was heading. But I hope they had the time of their lives.

I love the little girl in the picture. I would bet one of the boys is an older brother, but she had to be in the photo. I wonder if she went on the trip too. If a parent was a chaperon, I could easily see the little girl tagging along.

The old truck and camper are perfect for an adventure. If you look closely at the top of the camper, you can see camp cots and chairs. I am guessing, the camper is filled with all types of food and other supplies for the trip.

The two little girls in the background are utterly oblivious to the photo being taken. They seem to be having a deep conversation. When you look closer, I can actually see the one girl leaning toward the other as if to share a secret.

If you know something about this photo, please share with me. I would love to know the story.

Until next time…peace
