Well, it was nice to be away, but now it's back to normal. I went for my walk. It was chilly but sunny. Then I picked up MIL and we went over to Jane's. It's not our normal day, but we had arranged to meet one of Jane's genealogy friends so she could go through Jane's books and see what local groups could use. It was nice to distribute a few more of Jane's things to someone who would appreciate them. We aren't going the rest of the week. We're supposed to get another storm on Thursday, and I don't want to drive in the snow. We're hoping next week the weather will be better and we can get back to our normal Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We have a sort-of plan going forward and we need to keep going so we can get it done.
Tomorrow will be a walk, lots of housework and catching up with things I've been falling behind on. I did go get the things we needed for meals for the week today, so I am back on track with that. I feel better knowing that meals are planned, and ingredients are purchased. It makes me feel a little more in control of things and it helps that I don't wake up trying to think of what's for dinner!
The photos today are catching up on my Phone Photos - Things That Make Me Smile. I have been taking them each day but have now organised the catch-up ones on my phone and so am placing on my blog. There were lots of things that made me smile over the weekend it was tough to pick just one!

Our last sunrise at the lake. Oh my. It was a frigid morning. I was the only (crazy) one out there. I stood on the ice watching the sun rise. I am standing in the lake. The ice was solid all the way across but this is pretty close to the shore. You can see where the ice was formed.
Beautiful photos, Sharon. It sounds like you are seeing the beauty of winter all around you.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I think I have to look for beauty otherwise I'd be inside all winter long lolDelete
As always, your photos are a delight to look at. Thank you so much for the pleasure they give.ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, what a sight for the eyes those photos are spectacular. No wonder they make you smile.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I'm trying to look each day for things that make me smile just so I don't feel so down all the time.Delete
Wow, that ice sculpture is amazing. Is that at the lake near your home?ReplyDelete
It's in the same state where we live but it's about 260 miles away. It's hard to describe but it's the lake attached to Lake Michigan. Michigan has Lake Michigan on the west side of the state and Lake Huron on the east side of the state. We went to the top of the state where the lakes meet and it is right there at the top. Hope this makes sense! The state I live is known as the Mitten State as it resembles a mitten!Delete
I always love your pics and that pic of the Falls is absolutely utterly stunning! It must feel good to know that some of Jane's stuff is going to places where it will be loved.ReplyDelete
Take care of yourself.
Thanks for the support. It is nice to know that research that she treasured, and her love for genealogy, is being honoured. I know MIL would have trouble throwing it out.Delete
