It's been a cold, windy, snowy day here in my corner of Southwest Michigan. We've stayed inside all day. There were cars out on the streets - a few - I saw some go up our hill. I think that, if not for the wind, it would have been a normal snowy day. People would have got out pretty much as they normally do around here in Winter. With the wind, however, I think visibility would have been pretty poor. When the wind blew I could barely see from my garden to the neighbours. The birds were out in droves, eating the seed as quickly as I could put it out. We had a flock of Starlings at one point that devoured most of the seed laying around. I suppose they have to eat too! Most of the birds were all fluffed up, trying to keep warm. A little like us with our bundles of layers lol.
I didn't get a whole lot done. I messaged with sister, chatted with son and chatted with daughter. It was a relaxing day overall. I put off doing a few things, but it was nice to have the break.
It's still snowing as I write this. I think it's supposed to continue overnight and most of tomorrow. The snow has been pretty light and fluffy and has been drifting with the wind.
I had husband turn on the Christmas lights for most of the day trying to inspire the Christmas mood. Can't say it's really happening. I did enjoy looking at the ornaments and lights though. Cheered me up a little.
Taken with my phone. Some of the handmade ornaments on our tree. Most of what is on there is handmade.
There is a lovely petrol/gas station that sells the most wonderful Cinnamon Rolls. Seems strange but they were really tasted. We put them in the microwave for about 30 seconds and they are all warm and gooey. Yum!
Yum, cinnamon rolls! I love that little knitted reindeer sweater ornament! Stay warm and safe during the big winter storm the weather forecast is saying is impacting the Midwest!ReplyDelete
Those cinnamon rolls are delicious. My MIL made the knitted sweater ornamentDelete
Cinnamon roll - how delicious!!ReplyDelete
I'm glad the weather isn't dreadful and that your power is OK. xx
They are really tasty!Delete
One of our local gas stationss sells Krispy Kreme donuts! I dearly love the raised glazed ones so I try to stay sane and healthy by driving right on by most of the time. It is not where I buy my gas so that makes it easier.ReplyDelete
Ha ha. Some of them have really tasty food! There is a gas station near Muskegon that sells really fresh lovely muffins. YumDelete
I like your tree ornaments... did you make them or were they gifts from loved ones?ReplyDelete
