High winds, falling trees across the roadways, temperatures dropping into the 20’s with cold rain turning to snow later this afternoon. It’s a good day to stay inside in Northern Michigan.

I hope we get all the bad weather today and tomorrow.

On Friday afternoon, my sister and I are leaving work early and heading further north to the upper peninsula for a “girl’s weekend” away. We are going to a casino for two nights of blissful pampering….no cooking, no beds to make, no dusting, no vacuuming, no dishes to do…..just play time. We did the same thing last year and it was quite fun. It is melding into a tradition. Maybe this year we will even win some moolah….the perfect topper to the weekend.

It is deer hunting season in MI. The “big hunt” is almost a state holiday here. Even the schools close on opening day. Hunting season lasts for two weeks, which means I will be very slooooowwww at work. Hardly anyone has a banquet during this time (because everyone is out to their hunting camps). Next week the banquet rooms will sit empty for three days straight (a rare occurrence). I have decided to put off doing the trees until then.


  1. "put off doing the trees until then"

    Sounds like a perfect opportunity.
    Uninterupted creative time is always a treasure.

  2. so true, Jenn.
    No, Sandy, DH does not hunt (which makes me very happy. I don't eat venison--yuk!)

  3. Have a great time with your sister!
    We do have hunting season in PA too. My neighbor sometimes shots the deer almost in our backyard. I try to stay inside.

  4. Dianne, Is it hunting season right now in PA?

  5. zoey. you girls have a nice trip to the up and try not to get snowed in.
