Super Saturday #33

Hurray for Super Saturday #33…

Beautiful things, exciting things, inspiring ones…I’ll share with you those things that bring me joy and make me happy!

 

Here are three things that make me happy:

 

1) these two lovelies make me happy…Carl is feeling better, cheerful and pleasant…which means Mom is feeling better, cheerful and pleasant ;)


2) a bunch of wonderful ladies…out to eat

3) a rocket launch at the cape at night…Atlas V with NASA communication equipment on board….just took the photo with my little camera, not bad for point and shoot:))

Super Saturday #32

Hurray for Super Saturday #32…

Beautiful things, exciting things, inspiring ones…I’ll share with you those things that bring me joy and make me happy!

 

Here are three things that make me happy:

 

1) Frozen lake, then more snow, then it starts to melt…and this beautiful blue color appears!

photos just can't capture the color...

 

2) the guys and girls gave me a wine tasting for Christmas, and we took advantage of it last night….great place, Filipo Marc Winery! We tasted 15 different wines, with great explanations and tasty snacks. Yum!! Then we went out to dinner…great night with those favorite folks of mine:)))

cute couple #2

(a few other slightly obnoxious photos were taken, but I’ll keep them secret)  ;)

3) goofy cat has decided that sleeping on cast-aside newspaper from Christmas boxes makes the best place for a nap….lots of crinkling going on:)))

silly kitty!

Definitely Winter!

The past week in Michigan…Wow!! Definitely more like winter than usual for this time of year!!

 

Lots of snow…more than once…and ridiculously cold temperatures, with and without considering the wind chill factor! 14 below zero is cold even without the wind…add that in and you get 40 below!

I have been hibernating, just looking out the window. It IS beautiful, especially if the sun shines!

 

Here’s a peek!

the end of last week...

with the sun...

over the weekend...getting the hockey rink ready

starting to snow on Sunday

snowing

late Sunday

by Monday...below zero...

Tuesday, blowing snow and frigid

still pretty

 

By Wednesday, I was out and about. The high was only 11 degrees, but it felt downright balmy after the previous few days!!!

Keep safe…wherever you are!!
