SnowMelt

From polar vortex to ice storm. This winter is definitely packing a punch. My frosted windows melted away on Friday and my car started without a hitch. This weekend most of the ice and snow also melted away in above 40-degree Fahrenheit temperatures. This cheerful snowman had a very short life. But our brief time […]

The Ice Queen visits again

January started off mild, but now we are getting the brunt of winter. A first blanket of snow appeared January 12. By mid-week the temperatures had become frostier, and the Lake had a visit from the Ice Queen. I enjoyed the stroll, although fingers get frosty by the lake when the wind is whipping. The […]

Snowscapes

Here’s to the last hurrah of our snow fest this month. A few weeks ago Lake Michigan was splashing chilly waves all over the place. It made beautiful iciclescapes. Then came a dump of 12 inches over the weekend. Officially we got 6 on the biggest day, but it looks like more to me. Dutchies, […]

Frozen January

This January feels stalled. I am not accomplishing what I thought I would, partially because of where my family focus has been. I had a laundry list of things I wanted to work on since December 15, but am finding that January is breezing by. So when I returned from Houston I decided to let […]

Summer

Summer has begun and I wish I could go on vacation. Instead I am sneaking lake time away from the computer when I can. I uninstalled the DOT Show and am pleased my circles held up well. I even got to take home 2 of Carol Hamilton’s dots. Along the way I got to watch […]

Hello, Lake!

It’s still wire bending time in the studio, but I did have a chance to stroll by the lake during two balmy weekends. Yesterday’s snow flurries remind us it is still winter, but for a moment Spring was real! At least the queen’s crown is melting off. Within a week the tree  trimmers came by. […]

Fighting the ‘Why’

“You are here so God can experience the world through your eyes. See what you see, feel what you feel. Everyday he can’t wait to see what you’ll do. He can’t wait! Every day he falls in love with the world all over again. Elizabeth, you are his muse.” ~ Jeff Daniels as Arlen Faber […]

The Ice Queen visits

My energy is coming back and some good things have been kicked off, but I still need to ease into a normal routine. The Ice Queen paid a visit this weekend and left some lovely art behind. There is much beauty in this wintry scenery, though staying out very long is not an option. I’m […]

Girly Time

On Sunday a few of us girlfriends had a gathering where no boys were allowed, and it was a lovely time of chatting, nibbling and toasting each other to the good things in our lives. We capped the evening with a candle-lit Fairy and Goddess Card reading, which seemed to hold good messages for everyone. […]
