Ugly is beautiful

bridgeIf you saw my quick update from earlier today, you would know that The Seagulls returned to their Round Island Rookery yesterday, Saturday, March 7, 2009. And that’s my real post for today because that is actual news! But since I can’t shaddup, you get two posts!

Down here in the south, the south of the Great Lake State, that is, we had a dark day of rain on this first day of daylight savings time. It was too rainy/muddy to hike anywhere, so we took the Dogha out for a slow river ride checking out how high the water level is and looking at all the bare black tree branches. If I had been walking along the river, I’d’ve gotten photos of some of the old dead tree carcasses. The ones that began their lives in the last century or maybe even the century before that. Alas, Urine Huron River Drive is not only a scenic road, it is also a commuter route for many people and we’re guessing it was the church commute this morning. I’m not sure Jesus cares if they are on time or wearing the right clothes or whatever. Anyway, the river road is a twisty, turny, hilly, 35-mph, two-lane paved road with no shoulder and therefore it can be dangereuse to stop long enough to take pictures. But I did get a few that I thought were worth posting. Click here or on the pic. Oh yeah, the photo is of the Delhi bridge restoration project. The bridge has been painted (orange) and I’m guessing they are about to put it back into place.

It has rained almost all weekend. It’s fine. We need the rain and I love it. I spent a lot of the afternoon slodging around down in the Dungeon working simultaneously on my fabric stash and my UFP. Somehow those two prodjects (intentionally misspelled) have been intersecting the last few days.

Hope y’all had a good weekend. Love, KW.

    Went to Houghton Lake and messed up the webcam by mistake. Sorry. Now you have a reason to go up there. GG has to fix the computer program. I have no idea which button I pushed, but I wasn’t going to mess with it.
    The weather was a little soggy, but everything seems to be fine at the cottage. There is still snow on the ground and there are big piles in parking lots and in driveways. The ice is thick on the lake, but you can hear cracking noises and the ice is shifting and working its way up the sea wall. In a few more weeks it we should have open water.
    I worked on the curtain for the upstairs front bedroom, but couldn’t finish because I left something home. Next time I go there, I hope to finish the window covering. No more light house beam to keep people awake.

    Gimme some of that rain–we have the snow back and predicted record-setting temps of about 20 tonight. Can’t it BE SPRING??
