Please Keep Praying!

Please keep praying about our trip to Marquette. The forecast has changed. Although we're expecting snow through mid-morning in the Keweenaw, there's a winter weather advisory for the area where we're headed. It tells us that we'll be driving through a bunch of snow on our way to Marquette and back again. Plus, my appointment has been moved up 45 minutes, so we'll need to leave well before daybreak. Oh well!

All is well in the Keweenaw.

Looking White!

What does 13-1/2 feet of snow look like?

Something like this.

By the time I was finished preparing that photo, I looked up and saw this.

Of course it's snowing! It's January in the Keweenaw!

It's *so white* and *so beautiful* out there!

We're off to Marquette this week for more dental surgery. Hopefully, the bone graft is sturdy enough now for the surgeon to place the dental implant post at this appointment. After a few more months of healing, I'll need one last check up from him to make sure my local dentist can place the new tooth on the post. I'll then be able to kiss my gap "goodbye!"

When we set this appointment back in July, we were quite concerned about the weather, as daily snowfall is normal in January in the Keweenaw. Even though it's snowing to beat the band at the moment, the forecast for our travel day to and from Marquette is looking pretty good. Amen! The last thing we wanted to confront when we returned after a long day of traveling was a long driveway we were unable to navigate because it had snowed so much while we were away. That doesn't look very likely, so we're thanking the Lord for that!

Gotta do some advance meal prep in the kitchen today to get ready for the week. I ended up with a mega migraine after the last procedure, so I want to be prepared just in case. Can't let Mr. Cut Off starve, you know. (Okay, he wouldn't actually starve. He's quite proficient in the kitchen, but I haven't let him practice much in the last 12 years.) I'll let you know how everything went later this week when I'm sitting around healing! 

All is well in the Keweenaw.

Sunday Reflections

We've had about 5 more feet of snow since I snapped this photo!

I would appreciate prayers for my upcoming dental implant surgery this week. He'll be placing the post in the area where I had the bone graft back in July. It'll also be a long day of traveling for us - to and from the dental surgeon in Marquette.

All is well in the Keweenaw.
