Father Time

The month of December 2011 left us with almost no snow which is most unusual for us here in the northwest corner of  the lower peninsula of Michigan.  I had a couple of days of nice ice skating on the lake and now we are getting some real snow today.  Predictions are for up to 20" but we will see. 

Regardless of the forecast, I got extra grocery staples just in case.   The wood is stacked in case power goes out and we lose heat from the furnace.  Bird feeders are full as are the squirrel stashes.  Most importantly, perhaps, I organized the garage this morning so I could get my car inside.  That meant moving my pack and ship table, sorting items to be listed in my Etsy shop, loading the recyclables and Goodwill drop off items into my car.

I feel ready for anything now.   I think I'll curl up with a book and let it snow!

Here is a 1909 postcard from my collection.  Happy New Year!
