Well, it may be spring, but it still doesn’t quite feel like it here in Michigan.  With highs in the 30s and lows in the teens, I worry about all of those flowers that are beginning to stir.  The grass is still brown, and our trees still don’t have any leaf activity.  I check every day!  Come on, Mother Nature, give us some green!  St Paddy’s day wasn’t enough.

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–Spring is in the Air!

Last week was a trying week, so I didn’t have the energy to spend much time on the blog.  My time away from work was spent with the dogs, the horses, or reading and decompressing, and I finished Anne Bishop’s Vision in Silver.  The book was just what I needed to escape from reality, but now I’m sad that I’m caught up in the series.  It will be a long wait until the next one!

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–Viva Las Vegas!

Last week, Dean and I packed our bags and headed to Las Vegas.  We stayed at the Venetian, in an impressively large standard suite, and spent our vacation strolling along the Strip, playing slot machines, and eating.  It was a nice, relaxing week, and I managed to stay disconnected from my devices for most of the trip, so that was a nice break, too.

Here are some pix:

Dean and I are taking a little break this weekend, which I’ll tell you all about next Sunday.  I hope you are having a great weekend and that the weather is improving wherever you are!

I am reading Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop and it’s fantastic! What are you reading today?

So, wow! We had two days when the actual temps were –18 and then –22.  Just HOW??  Is that even possible?!  What an awful stretch of frigid weather we are having!  The dogs don’t even want to go outside to do their business!  We had a slight reprieve yesterday, with a high in the 20s, but it’s going to be subzero again the rest of the week. UGH!

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–The Alberta Clipper Edition

Ugh! What a weekend!  It hasn’t been my favorite.  First, Poppy hasn’t been feeling well for a few days, but since her activity level was pretty much the same, I wasn’t extremely concerned.  Then she threw up what seemed to be 3 days of food Friday night.  I was worried on Saturday when she wouldn’t eat or drink, but I boiled up some chicken in the crock pot and mixed it with mushy rice and sweet potato baby food, and she did devour that for dinner.  Now we just have our fingers crossed that whatever made her upset to her stomach has passed.  I hate when my puppers are sick.

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–Heat Wave Edition

Last week was all about the snow.  Ugh!  About 20 inches of the stuff!  Most of it fell on Sunday, and then we got another dumping on Wednesday. We couldn’t get out of our driveway on Monday, let alone our subdivision, so we took a snow day – which involved actually moving snow out of the way so we could get our cars out.  I was also able to read, so it was a nice, unexpected break.

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves – Super Bowl Sunday Edition

It’s already February!  This is my least favorite month; it’s all dark and dreary, and even though it’s the shortest month of the year, the weather makes it feel like the longest.  Our forecast is calling for 6 – 10 inches of snow – oh, yay!  NOT!  The grocery store was a disaster with people shopping for the Super Bowl and stocking up in case we do get whacked by a snowstorm. I would like to officially lodge a complaint because they were completely out of taco sauce and my favorite variety of pasta sauce. How will I survive an entire week without my taco sauce??
