We are so lucky

Saturday, December 06, 2014


The title we are so lucky is referring to us in the UK, more in the South East. Why, well my nephew who sent me this picture below. He live in the US in a small town called Florance in Wisconsin just South of the Michigan boarder. Nearest "big" town is Iron Mountain.

The other day he sent me an email telling me it was -22C and snow was up to his chest outside his home.



Who fancies using a JCB to build a snowman.

To all my SP friends in the USA please stay warm and safe.

    Wow, I live in Michigan but we don't have any snow right now. It is suppose to get up to almost 50 degrees this weekend. Warm for us this time of year. Looks like they may be in for a rough winter and it usually comes across the lake and blows our way!

Sunrise

Saturday, November 29, 2014

I was up a little early this morning and wow what a sunrise.

I was just out the door to going and get my morning paper, as I stepped out of the house this is what I saw. I just had to go back and get my camera.

Please enjoy as much as I did.



First sight


looking around



Of course the camera doesn't give justice for the eye but this is the best it can do

Have a good weekend.

A bad time of year

Sunday, November 23, 2014

It is a bad time of year with nothing but wet cold windy weather. I thought I would look back at what things have been like a few months ago just to cheer things up. I lot has been shown before but this will remind you of what I am missing here. No order only as they come.



Sunrise


Rose


River in Spring


Tulip















That is it, I hope it cheers you up

    Wonderful pics Trev. Put a smile on my face for sure. I love Sunrise's like that one. Such a deep red. Good shot of the Moon! Are those Starlings as the feeder?

    I know how you feel - going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark is so tiring - I do enjoy the stars though! Must admit I'm sort of counting the days to the winter equinox on 21st December when the days begin to get longer again!

Too nice to stay in

Sunday, October 19, 2014

After being in or not going very far (because of the flu) I decided that is was too stay indoors. I loaded the car and set off for may favorite haunt, Bloors Wharf. This is a pier that sticks out on the river and lets you get near to he wildlife.
The trouble today was the wind was gusting and blew my tripod over, no camera on it at the time.

I managed to get set up and spent about 45 minutes taking pictures.


Teals and Mallards

Have fun and a good week

Too much

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

It is like this, I wanted to go for a walk this morning, 2 miles round the block I thought no problem. I did it and felt good afterwards.

So good I decided to do this weeks 5k virtual walk, big mistake that as it was too far. The route did not let me take a short cut home so it was keep going. Now after (or still trying to get over the flu) that was not a good idea. So just to get home I had to keep going and finish.

I managed to get home but my time sucked 8 minutes over my best time a time I was doing two years ago.

Two good things:
I finished
I have something to aim for doing next weeks 5k.

    Hope you had a chance to fill the cupboards and get in some rest along with exercise. I want to get in 13K steps a day again with my walking so I am ramping up the walking this week and making sure I am active and not sedentary unless I am sleeping!

Happy Weekend~ emoticon

    I was just thinking this, you are still recovering from your flu so give yourself a little break on the time factor. I walk round my neighborhood quite a bit so I can get a little bored with it so sometimes I use the treadmill if I am struggling with steps. I am about to do a half hour outside in a bit here! This time of year I need to do my morning walks until baseball is up and then I have more breathing room in the evenings!

This week I am working at just getting more consistent with my walks and next week I'll worry about getting in the 10k+ for 5 days~

    Uh oh! You probably still don't have your strength back just yet after being sick. Get some rest & take it slow the next few days.
