2014 in Review - March

Ah, March.  I don't have an official bucket list.  However, when the boss wondered if I wanted to go to a computer meeting in New Orleans I immediately recognized that that was something I had to do.  It gets complicated.  I don't like to fly, but I told the boss I could take the train.  And he agreed!  And he paid for a sleeper car instead of coach, as I take when I'm footing the bill.  Sweet!

There was an eight hour layover in Chicago, so I went up in the tower. This is March 4th.  Lake Michigan is frozen frozen frozen!

The train gave me a chance to see the scenery as we went south.  Going through the bayou was the best part!  It looked just like I thought it would after reading fictional stories set there.

I must go back to New Orleans!  Most of our time was spent at the conference, but our hotel was on the edge of the French Quarter so we got a little taste.

March was also the spring Home Show at the MSU Pavilion.  A nice harbinger of spring, but there was still snow on the ground!

2014 in Review - February

Youngest great-nephew Roman turned one.  A big party for all sides of the family transpired.  Too much fun!

Still much snow! A couple more snow days.  NO thawing! We are not used to winters like this!

2014 in Review - January

The first four days of January, 2014 were fine, other than we were still socked in with the debris from the ice storm that had hit three days before Christmas.  On the 5th of January, we got a new storm:  15 inches of snow in two days.  Beginning to look like an old-fashioned winter!

Sometimes it's not fatigue.

Sometimes it is the flu.
Next year I WILL get a flu shot.  104.2, 103.6, 102.8 are too high at my age.
