Honest. It's coming. It'll be here soon. Never mind the snow, the ice, the below zero temps.....the sun shone today. I put on actual sunglasses.
One of my favorite spots to go in the warm weather is Port Huron, Michigan. It's a very busy border crossing town [used to live there]. Sunday, my girlfriend from London Ontario met me there, and we got a motel room and stayed up half the night catching up on "stuff". Normally, we have all our boys [my two and her four], but this time, it was girls only. You betcha we're going to do it again.
Last night, it got down to -8F or something ridiculous like that. We sat in Cracker Barrel, in front of the enormous hearth, enjoying the roaring fire with our meal. No pics sorry, we were too busy having a gabfest. This morning, I went sightseeing, and it was nice without all the tourists. But COLD!!!
Loved that house. I also went to visit the lighthouse that I'd never been to. It was closed, but pretty. Didn't stay out of the car long! I think it was 1F by that point.
Now this pic is looking toward Lake Huron from the lighthouse, which is on the St. Clair River....
The trees on the right, across the river, are in Canada. You see that white line that stretches across the horizon? That's ice on the Lake. The Great Lakes have something like 90% ice on them!!!! Unheard of!
This is where I lost my nice warm gloves. One of my favorite spots by the Bluewater Bridge.
And of course, I stopped at the quilt shop - Sew Elegant - and found the perfect fabric [I hope] for my new pattern.
Isn't that great fabric? It ought to be, for what I paid for it. Been awhile since I purchased anything new, lol.
So that was my lovely weekend. I hope you had a good one too, and that you're enjoying warmer weather than I am....I'm back to working more hours, so my attendance at your blogs will be spotty at best. But the paycheck gets me more fabric, and that's a good thing!
Keep thinking spring....spring....spring....
