Spring buds on the maple trees
This week’s photo challenge at WordPress is: Escape.
Just wanted to let you know. We’ve finally busted out of winter here in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula after almost seven months.
We’ve successfully escaped.
We can only hope someone hid the keys of that winter jailor…

I’m going to Europe–vicariously.
Our son and his wife (who married, as you may remember, last October) are flying off for their belated honeymoon in France and Italy.
I’ve packed myself in Christopher’s suitcase–never you mind that his suitcase is halfway across the country in San Diego–and I’m going to visit Paris, Florence, Nice and Rome. I’ll be so quiet they won’t even know that the mother-in-law is ooohing and ahhhing up that Eiffel Tower.
I promise not to speak. In fact, they won’t even know I’m there.
Talkers and Listeners
Yesterday I meandered over to Carol’s blogging back step where she revealed she just visited Cee’s back step. Some of you may know that Cee invites us to answer blogging questions.
These help our readers know us better.
Perhaps they even help us know ourselves better.
How would you answer the question “Are you a listener or talker?”
Would you say, “Both”? (That’s always my standard answer. We’re both listeners and talkers in different scenarios in our lives. With Person A we might talk a blue streak. With Person B we listen endlessly without interjecting.)
Yet, truly, we’re often more inclined more one way or another. Which way is your default position?
For all the times you’ve mothered…
Mother’s Day wishes are swirling all over the ‘Net. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. Happy Mother’s Day in honor of my precious babies who are now grown up. Happy Mother’s Day, dear Mama Earth who helped birth all of us, big and small.
I want to add another Mother’s Day wish to those of us humans who have never labored and given birth to real live squalling babies with red faces.
so here i am at another coffee shop, another cup of steaming java, late friday afternoon, barry at a high school track meet taking pictures for his newspaper job. me writing before he retrieves me just because it’s fun, playin’ with stream of consciousness writing, just because.
so here you are reading another blog before you high-tail into your weekend and what are your plans?
just had a fabulous chiropractic adjustment at superior family chiropractics, bless their adjusting hearts, i do love them so. it turns out the pain i’ve been experiencing lately merely involves a twisted sacrum, swollen ligaments and a kinked-up lower back.
Ice breaking up on the Keweenaw Bay
Yesterday morning in town–in between errands a’plenty–I noticed that the last of the ice on the bay was breaking up into jagged concentric circles and other patterned ice floes.
It was warm, about 60 degrees (16 C) in the early morning so I paused to take some pictures to show you.
Hope you enjoy the last glimpse of winter of our Keweenaw Bay. We hope it’s our last glimpse!
It breaks into thousands of floating icebergs
