It's Friday!

Today is Friday which means we are heading up to the log cabin! It is suppose to be in the mid 40's this weekend so I'm expecting some more snow to melt. My in-laws will be going to their cottage which isn't too far from us. I received an ominous call from my brother-in-law - he said to tell the the hubby and stepson to bring proper attire to play paintball in the woods. Ouch! (No, I will not be playing - I don't feel like being riddled with 20 different paint colors!)

I'm more into the silent sports - kayaking, hiking, birdwatching...

* I will catch up with you on Sunday. Sorry if I've missed your blog lately - It's been crazy around our house as I've been helping the hubby at his office as well as managing my own business. I promise to visit you soon!

A walk around the cabin property

We still have snow up in our area in Gaylord (which is also known as a snow belt in Michigan.) We may get some more snow this Sunday and I'm hoping that's it!

Let's take a walk around the property. How do you like my boots? Marvin the cat likes them. He tries to chew the shoe laces so I've had to hide them!

Over here Greg is working hard at clearing a path to our lake. It will be nice to have a dock this year. (Minus the duck poop!)

We have some pretty Birch trees on our land...

Here is one of my favorite little pine trees - I just love their smell!

We have our Wood Duck box cleaned up and ready to go. Hopefully the Red Wing Blackbirds don't nest in it again, I really want to see a Wood duck!

The creek is starting to melt...

Here's one of my winter friends (the Common Redpoll) who is still hanging around.

And here's my new horse. He's a little tired. Ha,ha! Just kidding! Just wanted to see if you were paying attention.

Morning has broken

Morning has broken,

Like the first morning....

Blackbird has spoken, the first bird.

Praise for the singing, praise for the morning

Praise for them springing fresh from the world.

Sung by Cat Stevens. Lyrics by Eleanor Farjean.

I wanted to share one of my glorious mornings I had this weekend with you.

Easter came early to the log cabin

I couldn't find any bunny ears this weekend. But I did have a ladder and some Easter eggs...

Here's what Marvin thought...

I won't tell you what the Mister thought but let's just say I'm not allowed to use the ladder anymore. Ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha!!!!
