A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

Vacation and Computer Talk

Oh, my. I'm b-a-ack! I've been out of commission. Needed a new monitor--after only two years of use. Hopefully, all is well, now. It's good to be back!

I've been seeing lots of vacation photos, especially of Michigan. Being from the Great Lakes State, as well as vacationing here, I thought it would be fun to share some of my own. This year we stayed in Traverse City and Frankfort. Both are situated on either Lake Michigan or on the Bay. The main part of Frankfort is a three-block stretch of shops and restaurants beginning at the shoreline Frankfort is beautiful, small and serene.

These first three photos are of the same lighthouse and pier in Frankfort, taken from various angles and times.

Another photo of Lake Michigan. This one reminds me of Kuwaii, Hawaii.

Bald Eagle taken while we were kayaking at Honor, Michigan.

Taken from up high, near Frankfort.

Finally, taken further north near the top of the lower peninsula.

Oh, to live up north only when the weather is perfect! Warm weather, very little cold. Dream on...

Nighty, night; sleep tight... Pleasant dreams of beaches, sifting sand, lazing around, kayaking, being pushed by the waves and breathtaking sunsets on the water.

Thanks for coming over to my blog,and thanks for your nice comments. I came over and read back for some time on yours, interesting, you're like me, you cover everything from eagles to poetry to coconut cake. Which incidentally I wrote down. I KNOW my husband will love. Blessings, Diane

Beautiful photographs! I was also amazed how much the lake on the west side of the state seemed tropical - the water was just so blue and pretty!

I've never been to Frankfurt, so I may have to add this to my "places to see" list - you're right that there's so much to go to in the state!

Yes, Diane and Pretty Little World. Thanks for commenting. I love our coast! Frankfort isn't too far from Interlochen and closer yet to Honor.

By the way, Diane: My bachelor neighbor told me yesterday that, even though he doesn't care for coconut a whole lot, he ate all three pieces at one sitting. He said it was the moistest cake he's ever had.
