Thanks for all the lovely comments regarding my photos. I was really pleased with the light over the stream.
This weekend had some good and some bad. I know I shouldn't dwell on it, but Saturday marked six months since Mum died. It also has been about a year since Mum got taken to hospital with Covid. It's been such a rollercoaster of a year. On Saturday, the six month anniversary, I tried to think good thoughts, of the good times we shared and the holidays we enjoyed together. I want to try to think of the good and not dwell on the bad, but sometimes it's hard.
Yesterday we went to the lakeshore when it was really wild and windy. I can almost imagine Mum laughing at me and thinking I was crazy for going out in that weather. She would have hated it. I think she probably would have sat in the car as husband did lol.
It snowed Saturday night and we got about 4-5inches of snow. It was still snowing when we got up and I wasn't sure we were going to go anywhere! The forecast had predicted sun but I wasn't imagining any with the start we had! Husband said we'd go out anyway. He's a good driver in the snow, confident and used to it as he grew up with it. He made me laugh with the story he told of when he was stationed in England and it snowed. He drove to the base in the snow only to find it had closed. He didn't think anything of driving in it, but he did wonder why the roads were so empty!
We meandered through the countryside and up to the lakeshore - a little further away. Guess what? The sun came out! It was cold, but a beautiful day. I'm so glad we went out! By the time we drove home the salt trucks had been out and the main roads were mainly just wet.

Yesterday after we got back from our windy day out it was lovely to have a cuppa soup, some lovely chocolate chip cookies and watch a favourite film all bundled up in my blanket. Worth smiling about!

Seeing the ice build up on the pier! Wow, it's grown just since last weekend!
I took lots of photos with my camera too.
Here's a black and white from Saturday with the wild waves. A lot of people have been posting on social media so I thought I'd try something different. It certainly shows how dramatic it was!
I have some catching up on blogs to do but I think I shall do it in the morning when I wake up. It's getting late and I am so ready for bed. I hope everyone had a good weekend.
