Lamp at the Landmark Inn in Marquette. Where we stayed for an overnight Christmas visit. (Photo is slightly cattywampus, but I still like it!)
- I may be over-doing it blogging lately, but, gosh, it can be fun. Some day, perhaps, the writing will cease again–but for now, it’s alive here.
- It can be especially fun when it’s cold. Something to do, you know, in a Little House in the Big Woods.
- It was warm today–almost 15 degrees (-9.4 C, right Sybil and Nicole and Bonnie? Did I get the celcius right this time?) Unfortunately, the wind blows incessantly. I spent five minutes watching a brown frozen oak leaf fall from the tree onto the deck. It looked like magic as it twirled and fell. I recommend watching leaves fall in the wintertime, if you’re lucky enough to see one skitter and prance on the wind.
- Good news for ice fishermen like my husband! Lake Superior may freeze all the way to and from Canada this year. He’ll catch 100 lake trout and burbot, and we’ll eat fish all winter. (OK, disclaimer, he may catch zero. But I’m being optimistic, because it’s more fun.)
- Should a person go to Florida and visit her mother in February? That is the current decision. The freezing cold temperatures prompt one toward a positive response.
- Vegetarian pizza for dinner tonight. Organic frozen broccoli from the garden. Add green pepper, red pepper, red onions and mushrooms. Shall I take a picture for you before it’s cooked? Please scroll to the bottom. I cannot seem to interject the photo here, alas.
- I am so enjoying comments on the blog. I am enjoying replying to comments. Don’t be afraid to comment if you’re so inclined.
- I wrote a post yesterday about not making resolutions. It didn’t say quite what I intended. I have been *almost* addicted to making resolutions in the past. (The 365 day outdoor blog was one.) These days it’s more relaxing to take a more relaxed approach. That’s what I wanted to say.
- So often we blog what we ourselves need to hear!
- Today I went to town, mostly for something to do. What did I do? Visited my husband’s place of work and saw some of my favorite people. Stopped for a latte at Java by the Bay, thank you, Michael for that whipped cream! Banked. Grocery shopped. Returned home within the hour.
- It is time to put the vegetable pizza in the oven.
- And tomorrow is another day in a cabin in the middle of the woods. What will happen? How will Life express itself? What new and exciting twelve points will be written on your Wall of Possibility? Will your twelve points be enough to make you happy?
