Snow Day.. Again

Sunday, February 20, 2011

Just got the call that our meeting was cancelled for this afternoon. Severe weather warning for our area. What a loving family that we belong to . Several of our friends our elderly and what a mess the roads would be when it would be time to leave. Already have an inch in an hour.

This is what I call Pretty Snow. Huge flakes flying in the air, tumbling to earth.
If you are to experience snow for the first time this is what to be out in.



This is a picture of DH hat, I was hoping you could see the flakes.


I just got a call that car accidents are happening all ove our little town. Brother has a police scanner and is listenening to the problems. I just heard another siren go off. Thankful we are inside. This is Queenie my cat. Warm and comfy.

Yesterday A few deer were trying to cross the road. We pulled off and I got this shot of one hiding. Can you see him?

I got his backside and white tail as he hurried away in the woods.


Hope you all have a great day.

    Oh my word these are such beautiful photos, from your snow to your gorgeous pussy cat and the deer which can be seen clearly. What a lovely creature to spot. Pity they are so shy, but I guess "hunting" seasons have taught them to be.
Thanks for this blog...absolutely loved it.

Fall is ending

Friday, November 05, 2010

Today's temp will only get to 41'. Calling for snow around the Great Lake areas. We are near Lake Erie but It is just spitting rain. I am not looking forward to winter. I am glad alot of our territory is driving.
I wanted to share the sunset we saw driving to Monroe Walmart last week.

    I absolutely love your photos...esp the last one. I am also sooo jealous of them....esp since my camera broke. emoticon Too many other expenses right now to even have it repaired or replaced. Oh well, maybe in the new year.

giant in the sky

Thursday, October 07, 2010

Have you all seen the movie Independence Day? The huge alien ship over the cities???
Well Tuesday. October 7 evening this is what the sky looked like at my place. Flat Rock, Michigan.
The skies were beautiful. Did you see it?

    That's funny. I wrote a poem about what I thought looked like a giant's foot up in the clouds. I'll post it in a blog so you can see it.
Great pics by the way!

    Breath taking to say the least. Isn't Jehovah wonderful? He gives us so much. emoticon emoticon We were on the last leg of our trip so saw very little of it. We were in the mountain areas.

Picture Day

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

When ever I can get my DH to pose for pictures I am so excited, because it is a rarity. Once a year a photographer comes into our town and sets up appointments to take a proffesional photo in your home. GREAT ! He does not have to leave the house to smile.

So I set the appointment up for tonight. All week I have been planning on what to wear. Sunday afternoon before the WT meeting he yells at me and says " HONEY,
I have a Problem and I need you to fix it !!

Well , I yell back and say I don't have time, you will have to come up here and tell me. He is smiling as he walks into the room... You see he was cutting his hair and well I guess pictures DO say alot.....


He forgot to put the clip on to cut the hair NOT shave the head. OOOOOHHHHH.
I was cracking up.

AND then I remembered our picture day. UGH with him BALD!
So I told him we would have to put coats on and for him to wear a hat.

Well when the photographer got here I asked if he would take a picture on my camera so I could show you the before and after photos. He does not look to bad if I say so Myself.
emoticon
See my page for the after photo.

    Was just visiting again...and this reminded me of when my brother was little..we are talking back in the fifties. He decided to cut his own hair with the electric clippers, but didn't know about the different heads for the clipper. He shaved a stripe right down the top of his head...and a not quite so close one down either side. I STILL find it funny all these many years later! emoticon

    My son had the clip part break in mid haircut! So he had to shave his head to the scalp...now he wears it that way anyway to deflect the ribbing for his premature baldness. My guys didnt' stand a chance in the hair department.
