Friday Musings and My Garden
The weather up here in Michigan has been spectacular!! We have not needed to use the AC at all, not once. Even though we don't have an AC unit nor central air, I'm not sure if we'll ever need one, even in mid-July. As a matter of fact we had a cold spell just a few days ago. Woke up to low 40's so to take the bite out of the chill, yes, we did it . . . . wait for it . . . . we turned on our fireplace!!! Imagine that?! I feel like we live up in the mountains of Cloudcroft, NM or Ruidoso, NM. That's where we used to go hiking and camping and picnicking when I was a little girl. No wonder I'm drawn to this climate and type of weather. Come winter, we'll see how much I'll love it, right? At least that's what my kids keep telling me. Yesterday after dinner, my sister, her hubby and I went to an outdoor concert held by the river that runs out into Lake Michigan. For two hours I sat there with my blanket covering me from head to toe, it was quite chilly I tell ya!! I couldn't believe there were people there wearing shorts and halter tops. Brrrrr! They must've laughed at me. Anyway, we enjoyed the music of The Moxie Strings. One gal plays the violin, the other gal plays an electronic cello and they had a guy on percussion. Their style was Celtic/Irish and oh, their music was so beautiful!!! Check them out on Pandora and create a playlist with the title of their group. I promise, you won't regret it.
Well I guess I rambled on enough. I'm sitting in my front porch with Mo, the dog and the sun has set and it is dark. The computer screen is the only light, so if you pass by and see me, it will look like my face is glowing. Have a blessed weekend everybody! Stay safe :)
Until next time . . .
