Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Out like a lion or hungry birds


Not surprisingly we had snow on March 31st. This is Michigan after all, where winter doesn’t go quietly.

We only got this much snow, but it sure was pretty!

Oh no, winter around here is much more sneaky than that.

After beautiful days earlier in the week those pesky weather people predicted snow, and they were right. It started Friday evening, by Saturday morning the yard was stunning. And when the sun peeked through the clouds (for only a few minutes, but still) it was spectacular.

A moment of sun early in the morning made it all sparkle.

I told Katie I arranged for snow just for her Gotcha Day. I don’t think she bought it, but she was kind enough not to laugh.

I’d rather not sit here mama, can we go back inside now?

Even she seemed to think it was pretty cold, wet and windy when we toured the yard. She said snow was not enough to get me off the hook for the lack of celebration on her big day. I had to promise something special for later. I think camping might do it, but don’t tell her.

Seriously mama, I’m cold and wet.

Meanwhile the birds were crazy. I have so many cute shots of them crowding around the feeders, that they will have to be in a separate post.

It was crazy around the feeders!

And of course Katie will be posting about her day and her expectations for future adventures. I might be in a bit of trouble there. We’ll see.

Waiting his turn at the feeder. Classy gent.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

    • No kidding! 🙂 But today the sun is out and the snow is melting even though it’s still cold. There are little things pushing up from the ground, bits of green. Sun makes anything seem possible, even the end of winter!


  4. Winter wonderland! My dad sent me a picture from Quebec. His car is buried in the white stuff. I bet you folks are sick of it all.

    • I was mesmerized yesterday afternoon as the light changed and the snow clad trees glowed. But now that Katie and I have played in it for a day we’re both OK if it just melts and we move along into spring now.


  5. We got some big fat flakes, too, but none of it stuck around. Better put on your Thinking Cap — something tells me your princess has a calculator going for all your slip-ups!

  6. Hope the melt down starts soon- enough is enough! Even though it does look very pretty
