Somehow, Michigan went straight from Summer to Winter! It's been snowing on & off all day today & even I have to admit, it's pretty :) The weatherman said it wouldn't stick to the ground, though, but I think he needs to look outside again! Our temps were just in the 70's last weekend & today, I don't think we've hit 35 yet! Brrrrr!!! And of course I just had to take some pictures & here they are. The first one above is of our deck & our doggie's footprints :)
Here is our front yard with snow on the leaves that we haven't had a chance to rake up yet.
Another picture of our front yard.
Backyard & grill.
Doggie Dandruff? :) Reeses usually loves the snow & loves to play in it, but I guess there wasn't enough for him yet.
I just wanted to take a moment & thank you for the prayers for my Mom. She had her surgery today & I just got off the phone with her & she's doing really good :) God does answer prayers!

In other news, I finally got my baby (car) back today :) The body shop did an excellent job on it & you can't even tell that there was a dent in the roof! But of course, now it's all dirty again from the wet roads :( Ah well.....if it warms up this weekend, I'll give it a bath.

And lastly, I just wanted to give a shout out to the awesome Detroit Tigers :) They are in the playoffs & are now 2-0 against the Oakland A's. WOO-HOO! Let's go Tigers! I truly hope they can go all the way as it's been WAY too long since they won the World Series!

Have a great Thursday,

Ah Benita! Send me some of that snow!!!! I love snow! I hardly get any around here... todays' temp was near 80! But tomorrow is suppose to be a high of 59. The cold air is moving in. Hopefully our leaves will start to change soon! Now that I have my camera back----- BRING IT ON! LOL.

I'm so happy to hear that your mom is doing good. I will continue to keep you all in my prayers.
I still can't believe that it snowed their! That is just insane. Hope it warms up for you soon.

How fun is that!! I love snow (in small doses and that's all we ever get so I'm good with it.) and I'm a little envious! lol

Hi, Benita!

WOW, that snow is gorgeous! I'm jealous. In the 80's here. :)

I'm glad your Mom's surgery went well. God is so good.

Have a good Sunday!

Wow! You guys had that much snow already? We had a sprinkling just over a week ago, and a dusting today. I'm thinking SERIOUS winter this year! (I'm also in the Midwest, BTW.)
