We are already into the second month of 2014. Many, many inches of snow have fallen already this year. Our neighbor cleaned out our drive again yesterday. We have some pretty big snow banks that have accumulated from the drive being cleaned out quite often.
We are finally experiencing a real Michigan winter. Haven't had one since we moved here 10 years ago. This morning our thermometer showed a cold 9 degrees. This cold weather makes us still enjoy working on 1000-piece puzzles when time allows and in the evenings. We are almost halfway done with the sixth one this winter.
Some are harder than others. It depends on the picture and the shape of the puzzle pieces. This last one is not as fun as a lot of the pieces are the same shape. You have to be careful that a piece doesn't get put in the wrong place. It can look like it would fit in easily when it's not where it belongs.
Yesterday, Feb. 5, was Susan's friend Mose's birthday. Susan wanted to take supper in to his family in honor of his birthday. I helped her make the food which consisted of pizza casserole, lettuce salad, freezer pickles, hot peppers, chocolate pudding, angel food cake dessert, peaches and Swiss roll bars. We frosted the top of the bars so we could put "Happy Birthday Mose" on it so it could work as a cake since he likes the bars.
We made enough food so we could have an easy supper here. If the weather would have been nicer we would have all went along with Susan to Mose's place. But there was a winter storm warning out so we weren't sure how the weather would be by evening. It sounds like Mose had a nice birthday in spite of the weather.
