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?

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–It’s Stupid Cold!

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??

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves – January 25th Edition

Yesterday I went to a schooling academy show with Pixie.  Both Elsa and I took turns riding her, and Pixie did really well.  I didn’t care what ribbons she got, I just wanted to see if she would behavior her sometimes sassy self in the crowded, cold venue where these shows are held.  If she had walked a bit better I would have been ecstatic – as it was, I was pretty darn pleased with her performance.  The weather even cooperated and it was a balmy (for January) 38 degrees!  Still chilly when you’re hanging out all day in an unheated barn, but so much better than the last time I went!

Wow! I have nothing to say today!  It was a long, cold week, and I’m pretty exhausted from battling the cold and snow.  We had a pleasant reprieve yesterday, with temps catapulting to the 30s!  It’s a wonder I didn’t get heatstroke! 

How was your week?
