I am a teacher and I enjoy living along Lake Michigan. It is a beautiful place that makes me feel like I am on vacation all year long!

The predicted high is 70 here today. It will be the warmest day since early last fall. I'm excited to run my new lawn mower I purchased a few weeks ago. The mister has decided that he doesn't want to mow anymore but he thought our old mower was still fine. Um, No. The old mower took 12-20 pulls of the cord before it started. At that point I was already to go in and have some iced tea. The new one doesn't quite cooperate on the first pull, but at the second one it roars to life. Then, watch out because this one is self propelled and I need to be ready to GO! Back and forth and back and forth in semi straight rows and in about 15 minutes it is DONE! Wonderful!
Our beautiful daughter has been here for two weeks, which is one reason I haven't been here chatting with you all lately. It is wonderful to spend time with her again after a 13 month absence. We just enjoy spending time together and laughing and talking and hugging because we can't believe she is back here again. It has been amazing.
She brought me some lovely things from Chile. A beautiful blanket from the Atacama Desert that I have been using as a tablecloth. I'll have to take a pic. Today is my birthday and she is my present. She'll be here about 2 more weeks, so there is still plenty of time to enjoy ourselves! Thanks to all of you who still stop by and leave a message. I value the time you share.
