Dreary, rainy...but waaay above freezing!

Thanks for all the comments yesterday. I really appreciated them. Feeling a bit more cheery today. No sunshine - it was rainy and really dreary - but the temperatures were above freezing. Waaay above freezing. I think it was a record for Michigan. We were at 57F/13C. I went out for a walk despite the rain. We're going to have a mess tomorrow. Temperatures will be dropping back down to 26F/-3C. Talk about a temperature change! The snow has mostly gone, but more is on the way.

As the temperature was warmer and the roads clear I ran some errands after my walk. I returned library books and did a little food shopping. I was really good and only picked up a few things. I'm trying to get through some of the cupboard/freezer food.

It was really squishy out by the lake and there was a fine mist coming up from where the heat of the air hit the cold of the snow. It was really quite eerie.

I did get up to my craft room and manage to fill out some wildlife pages. Really enjoying making the book. I also did some colouring of stamps ready for cardmaking. The bright colours helped make me feel a little more cheery.


  1. That's a wide range of temperature! It's just dull and boring here in Essex, UK.

  2. I love the images you coloured.

  3. They will make some great cards, I need to make a start with some that I need.

  4. We do need some color in January here in the Great Lakes States - midwest - those are cute.

  5. Oh gosh that cold is not nice is it. Glad you got out while you could. Hope that you can enjoy your crafting and that it will cheer you up!

  6. (((HUGS))) Sharon. Sorry to hear that the weather is getting to you. Hopefully, time spent crafting will ease the winter blahs.

  7. I really appreciate your professional approach.These are pieces of very useful information that will be of great use for me in future.
