The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–Winter Wonderland Edition

And the snow came down, down, down!  Like a lot of the Midwest, we are under a winter storm warning.  It is snowing  right now, and it’s supposed to snow all day long.  The puppers love going outside in the snow!  I’m kidding – Poppy totally hates the stuff.  So do I.  I am already tired of shoveling it, and winter’s only just begun!  We are expecting temps in the negative teens tomorrow and Tuesday – ugh!

Stay warm if you are in the storm’s path!

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–Back to Reality Edition

 

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

We enjoyed our trip to WDW, where we walked, grazed, and basked in the sunshine.  My parents joined us for a few days, and I hope they had a good time walking, grazing, and basking in the sunshine with us.  I’m already looking forward to returning next year!

The weather outside has been frightful since we got back.  Yesterday and today – icy rain, which has left many without power and slippery roads.  I think I’m just going to hibernate today as I am not looking forward to trying to get out of our subdivision.  The driveway is a nightmare.

Hope all is well with everyone!  Is everyone finished with their holiday shopping??  I have a few more things to get, and then I am DUN.

I had a busy week prepping for our WDW trip.  It’s ridiculously busy at work, which isn’t the norm, so hopefully the business surge is an early indication that the new year will be busy, busy, busy.  I can’t believe Christmas is only a couple of weeks away!  December is going to go by crazy fast!

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–December is Here!

 

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

I can’t believe that it’s DECEMBER!!  The year flew by!  I’m excited for our trip to Disney World later this month, and I love the holidays, so 2014 will be here before I can blink.

I spent the weekend hanging out with Dean and the puppers.  We had a lovely Thanksgiving meal at Mitchell’s (no puppers allowed!).  Dean went all traditional with the turkey, while I enjoyed scallops and shrimp.  It was a wonderful meal, then I went to Kohl’s to check out the sales.  I won’t be doing that again any time soon.  I did pick up a few pairs of jeans, but the sales weren’t anything special, and the lines were ridiculously long.  The only Black Friday shopping we did was at PetSmart – the deals there were much better, and so were the lines!  Stocked up on treats for the dogs, and got them a new pillow for the family room.  They like it so much I wish I had bought one for the kitchen, too.  Maybe during the New Year’s sales?

It was actually in the 40’s yesterday, so we hit the park for a walkie.  I hope today is as nice, though the forecast is not as positive.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you celebrate it!  What did you do on Turkey Day?

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is next week! This year we are heading to Mitchell’s Fish Market for an early dinner (they are serving a special turkey dinner in addition to their regular menu – I am planning on ordering scallops because I don’t like turkey), and then I hope to hibernate for the rest of long weekend and read.  I hope you all have a wonderful week!

We had a quiet week for a change.  Thankfully!  The new furnace works like a charm, though the vacuum had an unfortunate incident and will have to be replaced soon.  Any suggestions?  I have a Dyson and I’m not happy with it – though it is 13 years old, and it has lasted longer than any other vacuum cleaner we’ve ever had. 

Severe weather is threatening part of the country, including Metro Detroit,  today, so take care!  I’m just bummed that it’s going to be 60 degrees, but the thunderstorms will keep us inside today.  Dang!

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–November 10th Edition

 

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

Last week was challenging, to say the least.  The past few weeks have kind of sucked.  There was the doctor appt from Hell, which I don’t even want to dwell upon – though receiving the bill yesterday for a test the doctor didn’t even have time to discuss grates on my nerves. 

The furnace has been replaced.  What a noisy endeavor that was!  All of that clanging and banging! The puppers were beside themselves with the strangers in the house and all of the commotion.  They collapsed in exhaustion right after the installers left and didn’t get up again until the next morning. 

I love having heat again, but I was not happy with the servicemen.  They forgot to relight the pilot on the hot water tank.  That was an unpleasant discovery at 4:30 the next morning.  I would never survive any sort of apocalypse – the loss of coffee, hot water, and access to the internet would kill me.  Anyway, Dean finally got the stupid pilot to relight after fooling around with it for – oh – about an hour.  Grrrr.

I was able to read 3 novellas during the furnace install, and this weekend I’m going to start reading through some of the holiday stories I have received.  It’s chilly outside, I have a functioning furnace, and yippy, I have a full can of coffee and Pumpkin Spice creamer so I’m all set for a weekend of Christmas themed stories.  I also have to finish up The Lair, which I am enjoying, but after the 50% mark, the pacing has become uneven.  Hoping for a strong finish.

What are you reading this weekend?
