The Week In Seven Photos

After another frigid week of weather, we are to the point where the dogs are thinking I can’t take one more day of snowballs on my toes or icicles on my beard.

It’s time for the hockey nets to be pulled off the lake, the shovels stored away

and sunrises on the lake in the kayak instead of freezing in the snow.

With thoughts of a St. Patrick’s Pub Crawl on my mind,

I thought I would try a Birdseed Crawl for the gang, but overall they appeared unimpressed

and would rather celebrate with one big bowl filled with only peanuts.

As we transition quickly from winter to spring this weekend with plenty of rain, there will be plenty of great things on tv with college basketball and the Michigan State Spartans and Michigan Wolverines playing for first place in the Big Ten Conference, the second season of Tin Star on Amazon Prime and time for a quick prayer that Bryce Harper has a fabulous season as he makes his Spring Training debut with the Philadelphia Phillies.

    1. With beautiful sunshine and finally a little warmer temperatures today, it felt like there is hope that it will feel like spring at some point this month.πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you!πŸ™‚ Wonderful sunshine today and the snow is slowly beginning to melt. I almost forgot what it was like to wear sunglasses.😎 The birds are getting a little fussy and now I’m not sure what to put in their bowls.😁

    What a winter collection! I can see why you’d like a shift into spring, though.
    Looking forward to season two of Tin Star – it is enjoyably bonkers, with Tim Roth chewing the (Alberta) scenery, plus the son of good friends has a small role in this season, so it’ll be fun to see what he does.
    The birdseed crawl made me laugh, even if the birds didn’t quite get the idea.
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you!πŸ™‚ Tim Roth is a favorite and I thought he was great in the first season and hope to be binge-watching episodes this weekend in between the big games. I’m discovering even the little birds have an attitude around here, but their reactions to the new bowls always makes me laugh. Enjoy the weekend!

    Your photos do indeed look like the frigid side of winter is still in town, but still, you have some beauties here. My favorites are the blue-hued sunrise and the snowy entrance of the church. Great blue jay with the peanut, too. Cheers, my friend, spring is close….

    1. Thank you!πŸ™‚ I’m really ready for spring after a few days of blue skies and melting snow! All the lakes look gorgeous right now with glistening ice and we may be close to actually seeing a few of the birds that have made their spring arrival in the lake.πŸ™‚
