I did my errands early this morning because we are under a Winter Storm Warning.
And what a difference a few days can make!
The wind is very strong, the snow is flying and later we will get freezing rain.
Below is the photo I took on Christmas Day.
I am sure people in others states use the same (or similar) statement as we do in Michigan:
"If you don't like the weather in Michigan, wait a few hours and it will change."
One thing I noticed while walking on Christmas Day were the number of acorns sprouting on the ground. The days had been so warm and spsring-like, I began wondering if any of the fruit trees in the area orchards were budding. That would be devastating because the the summer crops could be significantly reduced affecgting a major industry in West Michigan.
I am sitting at the table sipping a cup of Mint Chocolate Cocoa (a gift sent from our oldest daughter), watching the snow, checking emails and composing this blog as I wait to add the final ingredients to the pot of potato soup that will be our dinner this evening.
As that simmers, I will move to my sewing area and begin prepping for Merry Mayhem's New Year's Day Mystery Quilt

I have not decided what fabrics I will be using, but I do have a number of choices.
Have an enjoyable evening, perhaps you will be working on a little quilt project.
