Tuesday at Tobico Marsh

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

I had the day off today, so DD and I ran errands to credit union and Dad's house to check mouse traps and the mailbox.
We then went to the State park on Lake Huron and hiked the Tobico Marsh trail.. Lots of people walking dogs, Springer spaniel, German Shepherd, Labs, bloodhound, shelties, ..
I almost stepped on a frog as it got ready to jump into the cattails, but it made a getaway.

We got to the weir to check out the flow from the marsh to the lagoon and I spotted acute little river otter.. DD kept saying it was a squirrel(city slicker!!) would not take a picture of it,, finally when it was too late, she admitted it was an otter. We got so much rain here that the beaver dams are breached, floods everywhere in the park.

It was a great hike until it started to rain. You would have thought we were made of sugar the way we hot-footed it to the car!! A nice morning..

    I am so glad you are out walking instead of at home coughing. That is a good sign. I very rarely watch TV but DH like to watch netflix together. Maine is still very cold but the grass is green, I am happy you are feeling better emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank goodness for some time to decompress!

If I would just warm up some, you could enjoy those rain showers with a bar of soap. :)

Almost eight o'clock and the sun is actually out, bright...
We got more snow yesterday morning, but none today. I have not been out of the house since last Wednesday so I am still cold here with the furnace going. I finally slept in my bed and got a few more hours sleep!

Back to work tomorrow.. did not miss it at all..

Saturday

I lay in bed for three hours,(it is now 4:10am) cannot breathe lying down,, All the Vicks, breathe right strips, allergy/cold medicine/liquids/tissues in the world will not allow me to sleep lying down. Might as well get up and accomplish something, then try to nap in the wing chair.
Sent DD to store yesterday for more supplies,,
I did get some good news,,

A co-worker of mine told me a buddy of her hubby wants to buy my pool filter and pump, so when I return to work we will figure out a day to have them pick them up. I am overjoyed, since they have been sitting in my garage since he pool exploded over a year ago. I was planning on hauling them to dad's garage for the sale, but at the last minutes, since the filter is filled with 150 pounds of silica sand, it is very heavy. It weighs more than that empty, so having them buy it from here is great.
