As I think about the other states I've been in, I have been thinking how nice it is that Michigan summers are a mixture of mostly pleasant weather. Sometimes, it hot & humid. But, thank goodness, it fluctuates & gives us breezy & nice, too. The grass is green, but not b/c anyone had to water it. emoticon

Yes, it is nice to have beautiful days here in Northern Michigan, but, as of now, the sun isn't out here.

Aren't we lucky to have another beautiful day here in Michigan? It's so hard to stay active when you're cooped up in the house all day. Today was made for gettin' outside and gettin' moving. I have a brand new hoe and a garden full of weeds, so you know where I'll be today. Hope you all have a GREAT day!

Happy Back to Work day Monday, unless you're retired, like me :)

Gentle rain with some thunder this morning. We needed it and it's nice to not have to pay for water for the lawn.

Doing laundry, cleaning and going out to mow the lawn (if hubby let's me) and then we'll get ready to go to the Tigers game and out to dinner with our neighbors. It will be cool because we'll get to see the fireworks. I'm just not sure how to dress for sure bringing a jacket.

Everyone ENJOY and have a SAFE day emoticon

I'm just staying home and relaxing this weekend, doing my workouts and usual housework.

I don't live far from where they shoot off the fireworks, I can actually watch them from one of my kitchen windows. I love that I can stay inside and see them and not get bitten up by the mosquitoes!

I had some morel mushrooms growing in my yard, and didn't even know it! My niece found them when she came over to help me with some yard work this afternoon. She loves them, and she was so excited when she found them. I don't care for them though, so I told her she could have all of them she could find. It made her day to find them, and it made my day to see the smile on her face!

Snow here too; everything was covered when I got up this morning; there are still a few patches here and there that haven't melted yet, and I have quite a bit on my porch where the sun didn't quite reach today.

According to our local paper, there were 5 people in one of the mobile homes when it flipped over, and they made it out with only minor injuries, and those are the only people I know of that were hurt. A local business here in town lost their roof too.

Now they are saying the damage was from straight line winds, 75-80 mph, only lasting 3-5 minutes. It's hard to believe how much damage can be caused in just a short amount of time.

We had a scary storm here in Big Rapids last night, around 9pm; no watches or warnings, it came up rather suddenly and blew through here fast. Knocked the power out too; mine was out from around 9pm until 10am this morning.

I didn't realize how much damage the storm did til I went this morning; there are 4-5 uprooted trees in my neighborhood, and once the power came back on and I was able to get on Facebook, I learned the power was out for the whole town, trees down all over, and roofs damaged. In one part of the county there were also 2 mobile homes flipped over. It hasn't been confirmed yet, but I suspect we may have had a small tornado.

There's no place like home...there's no place like home.
We are still in Florida but I am getting excited to be returning to Northern Michigan in two weeks. I miss springtime there. The air is so fresh as the snow melts off. Bud springing up and waterfalls of melting snow. The cracking of ice as Lake Michigan ice turns to floating iceburgs.
Did not miss winter this year but do miss spring time.

Just had some flurries today. I just Can Not wait for spring to come. Looking forward to longer walks with my dog. Really want to try couch to 5K this spring and summer. Took a ride to the beach (Lake Huron) to see the ice. Wow. It's on it's way down towards the river. Our beautiful Lakeside beach park will be getting a complete makeover within the next year. Love our Michigan beaches!

Tonight is date night with hubby. We're going out for dinner and then to a play at Meadowbrook Theatre. Tonight is Lysistrata Jones. It's a comedy about the battle of the sexes. Sounds cute. We've been buying season tickets for about 4 years and have really enjoyed the performances.

I'm enjoying the sunshine! My driveway is finally cleared of the ice that's been stuck to it for so long!!

I never have, but it sounds cool!

We had about 8 inches of snow from that last storm, but it warmed up to 43 here today, and a lot of it has been melting and dripping off the roof.

The sun is shining, it is 37 degrees in Taylor and ice is melting. This morning I had ice over the front part of the driveway from the dripping off the roof and gutters overnight, it's gone now.

Hopefully will not have a repeat of that tomorrow.

I have no idea where ants would be coming from this time of year either, but that would freak me out. I have a phobia about ants, even the teeny tiny ones.

We had some brief light snow flurries here too late this afternoon.

Our Dairy Queen has already open at least a couple of weeks, and surprisingly, even doing business on the days we have had wind chill advisories.

Very light snow flurries outside my window this afternoon. It was nice to see the sun most of the day yseterday. Dairy Queen opens March 1st....Spring is coming!

I am seeing carpenter ants and wonder where the heck they are coming from. There is still close to twenty inches of snow on the ground around our home. This is a sign of Spring that I could do without!

Last night we returned from a weekend with friends in their beautiful Gladwin, MI home. It overlooks a large snow-covered lake and we could see all the crazy ice-fishermen out there hoping to catch dinner! It really was a beautiful sight (from inside the warm house!)

Tomorrow we leave Michigan for a week in San Diego. We will visit my son who is stationed there and take a run up to Huntington Beach over the weekend to visit my brother! Can't wait!

It's freezing, but the sun is shining which always gives hope to Spring at some point!

Feeling a bit "blah" today and not quite sure why other than Winter doldrums. I will hop on the exercise bike and pump up the volume on my CD player with some good "workout" music and see if I can chase those away.

Have a safe and happy Weekend!

I've noticed the streets falling apart, too! This Michigan weather is tough on pavement! I'm not a bit fan of having salt spread everywhere, but sometimes I guess it helps.

Come On April!!!

Called City Hall yesterday to ask if something could be done about the profileration of potholes on my street. They've gotten so bad if you swerve to miss one you run into two others. I was told a program was already in place for April. APRIL????? sheesh!

I wonder if I can get the mayor to shop for and deliver my groceries until then?

I will see if Kitten Bowl is available "on demand". My husband would enjoy it. We watch Animal Planet a lot :)

So far today, cold and clear with 3-5 inches of snow coming tonight into tomorrow. At least for now we seem to be past the below zero stuff.....HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL....in more way than one LOL!

OH man there was a kitten bowl? I totally missed that !

Spent an hour yesterday chipping ice off the front sidewalk. My knees and back are letting me know it this morning. I will still get in some fitness, just not overly strenuos ones until it's heald again.

Hoping the sun today melts off more of it.

I'm enjoying a quiet day at home today; it's only reached 21 so far, but some of the snow is starting to melt on the roof with the sun shining.

Looking forward to watching the Puppy Bowl and the Kitten Bowl later on today.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! We don't have any plans or parties to attend, but that's fine with me. I'm really looking forward to a quiet day with my hubby.

The snow is absolutely beautiful today! I'm actually looking forward to getting outside to shovel the driveway and maybe take a little walk around the neighborhood.

Stay warm!

It seems like we all talk about the weather LOL....must be Michigan!

On tap for today is general housecleaning, laundry is already started and bathrooms are cleaned. I plan on losing myself in my Kindle for at least an hour this afternoon.

Super Bowl Sunday fare at our house (it's just my husband and I) will be a roast turkey with mashed potatoes, peas and sf/ff chocolate pudding with bananas and RediWhip.

IF he stays up late enough to watch the game (doubtful) we will have apples to munch on.

Have a great weekend everybody!

It is supposed to be a little warmer today, along with about 1 inch of snow. More snow expected for Saturday.

I am laughing about that Christmas greenery donation hitchhiking on the Purple Heart truck!

We did get out of the house yesterday and today the weather is going to be great until later in the day when some more snow comes.

Almost the end of the month and well on track for my 40 hours of fitness in first 40 days of 2014 (FB challenge I joined) at 35.5 hours for 29 days.....thank you SparkPeople!

Make it a great one team!

The Purple Heart truck came by today to pick up a few donations that we had. He backed into our driveway and hit one of our pine tree branches which was hanging too low. As he drove away a huge chunk of tree branch was stuck to the side of his truck! I got a good chuckle out of that! I'm sure he'll be surprised at his next stop to see that we also donated a tree branch!!

A little warmer today, but, not bymuch, I know it has been cold for such a long time. I went to Card Ministry this morning and then did some Grocery Shopping.

I have to say I was so happy to leave the house today and get back to work. The roads were ok but the temp is still low. My kids are still out of school today. They want to get back to normal. Since I don't have a scale at home I use the one at work and I am down 1.7 lbs from last week. YAY for snow shovels.

I know what you mean Susan! I honestly don't remember the weather being so cold for so long before! It's getting very old. I think I'll be making a run to the store today, too; just to get out of the house.

On the bright side, the sun is shining today emoticon

After getting all the way to -9 this morning, it's now a balmy 6+ in Taylor, MI this afternoon. Going to 0 overnight and then I think we are better the rest of the week.

We are all getting cabin fever and snapping at each other, really need to get out in the sunshine tomorrow, even if just for a ride to the store!

Thanks Rosie; I am anxious to get it and see what all is on it; I was so surprised and excited that I won that I didn't really get a good look at it before I confirmed my address, lol. I didn't even notice the DVD on the wheel before I spun it, so it really surprised me when it popped up.

From Warren, MI. Snow and cold here as other parts of Michigan. I had my snow shovel exercise yesterday and looks like we will have a bit more today. I am trying to focus on getting more protein in my diet. I finally lost that stubborn holiday weight gain and one more pound besides! I just want to continue to chose healthy food choices and hopefully that will help me achieve my goal someday.

You might be from Michigan if.....

Your most used piece of fitness equipment this Winter has been your snow shovel!
