We go a little crazy in Michigan when the temperatures are close to 60 degrees in mid February. Everyone's mood lightens, the sunglasses come out and the lines at the car wash extend around the block. Everyone wants to be outside and feel that sun on their face.
Friday night was my neighborhood Bunco, just down the street and though the wind had kicked up, it still felt amazing to walk there with only a sweater, instead of a heavy coat. It was wonderful to see my neighbors and hear and see pictures of the new granddaughter, recently born to the host's daughter and son in law. She had also just returned from a trip to New Zealand and was thoughtful enough to bring back dish towels to use for our Bunco prizes. I was lucky enough to to win one, plus some money for the most wins of the night.
Saturday we headed to dinner and a comedy club with a big group and had a fabulous time. I live in the suburbs, but this location has a busy downtown area with lots of restaurants, bars and nightlife and the weather made it a beautiful night to park down the street and walk to our destination. It is always fun to see our friends and the comedian made us all laugh out loud. It was a fun and different thing to do on a Saturday night. My husband and I left the group after the show and stopped for a late night coffee on our walk back to the parking garage. It was a lovely night all around.
