Not as warm as yesterday but still very nice out. Our DIL lived in Boyne City when she taught school in Petosky before she met and married DS. He was stationed across the state and they met at a bowling tournament.
Not a lot going on here. I don't have the energy to do very much. I did walk a mile with Leslie and maybe that is where my energy went. Three days in a row now. DH is washing one of the cars. I have a load of clothes in the washer and the bed sheets did get washed and the bed it ready for DH to tuck the sheet and blanket in. I can not lift the mattress.
I finished one book and may start another.

It's 41 degrees and he sun is out so it should warm up to 44.
A friend gave me some fish her grandson caught. I'll be grilling sea bass for dinner today. Have a big salad of romaine, tomatoes and avocado with that. There might be enough sea bass in that package for another serving tomorrow.
Yes Patty, I am familiar with your area. My parents took me there more than once. The temperature swings are not unusual for Michigan. We lived in East Lansing when there was a very stormy spring night and the temperature went from below freezing to ninety degrees in just a few hours. That night my husband and I took the baby out into the car so we could really watch the storm. It was spectacular!
I was babysitting the day the big tornado hit Flint. The child I was caring for refused to look at the sky after she first saw the clouds. I have always wondered if she knew that storm was going to happen.
Michigan weather is considerably more tempestuous than is the weather here in Washington State. I think the ranges of mountains serve to moderate the weather. We rarely have thunderstorms. We do have some wind storms. They take down the really weak trees. The root systems of the evergreens is generally fairly shallow and flat so those trees come down fairly easily.
Once in a fairly great while we will get a typhoon, (the Pacific version of a hurricane). I saw one when we lived in Eugene, Oregon. That was fascinating. We do have our interesting weather events. Not as many as you have, but they are interesting when they happen.
Judy, Boyne city is north of us. We live between Traverse City and Manistee. Are you familiar with that area at all? Going from -6 to 55 in one day is fantastric. I see, after hearing from you girls about the temps that we live in the wrong state...lol Patty
When I was a girl in Michigan we used to say, "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute." I left Michigan to fly to Seattle in December of 1956. The temperature in Michigan on that day was minus six degrees. I landed in Seattle to a temperature of fifty-five degrees. I haven't been back to spend a winter in Michigan. You mentioned the pinkie of Michigan. My uncle lived in Boyne City for years. He and his family went up there after he finished college. He was one of the GIs that got an education after WWII. My father did the same thing. The GI bill was one of the smarter things our country did to promote industry.
I cooked the London Broil last evening. I first braised it and then cut it in half and put it in the toaster oven. I cooked it a little too long for my taste, but it worked out very well anyway. I am going to slice it for sandwiches today. I'll probably save some for some sort of a noodle dish too. I am going to pick up another piece tomorrow when I go into town. I may even pick up a couple and I know I'll pick up another bag of Chicken breasts. That store also has Van de Camps fish fillets on sale. I hope they will have some of those left. We need them.
I'm getting my sleep pattern back to almost normal now. I went to bed around eleven last evening and woke after five this morning. Not bad for me. I hope I can keep it up. I have to start living on somewhat of a schedule. I have a new caregiver starting tomorrow. I really need her. My house is a shambles, my clothes are all dirty and ....
Good morning Girls, It is 11 degrees out today. brrr supposed to get up to low 20's today, then 40 tomorrow, then back to 20's again...silly weather. why can't it just stay in the 20's. It gives us a taste of spring like weather with temps up to 40, then drops back down again. Really, it is too early for spring. We still have March to contend with, or most of March, Usually the first couple of weeks in March are doozies, March coming in like a lion, going out like a lamb, that is the saying for March in the pinkie of Michigan.
Nothing else happening here. I need to get moving, but this weather makes me want to cuddle by the stove.
no to moving yes to water yes to food plan
Two out of three is better than it has been. I guess anyway.
