STAY AT HOME SATURDAY

Good evening to all my dear Friends.  I have been hold up in my home for this past week. It is so cold out side that the moment you set your foot out the door, it turns blue even in shoes. brr brr.

Thursday night it went down to -30 below. My poor fur babies we I felt so bad to have to send them out to do their business, I had to wipe and warm their little paws for them. I really need to get them some cute little booties....  At least they don't mess around too long..        Well today is not to bad out, it is above 0, so that is good.   So hubby and I have been watching some movies, with a fire going,  getting ready to eat a cheese pizza. Then I am make me some hot tea to sip.   I have my Vintage Valentine Swap Box already and ready to send. But with the weather being so cold and the cars not like it, I was not able to get to the mail. I feel so so bad for my partner, but she has been really great about it. 

It has been such a long time since we have had a Winter like this.  Oh I did color my hair today, it came out pretty good for doing it myself. I did a Med. Blonde, but because I have some red to my hair it looks like a  light strawberry blonde, funny how that works. Well at least it did not turn out green or purple. lol   Al though I have seen lots  of that color lately on Idol. lol   I am having fun watching  Idol how about you, are any of you into Idol????  Hubby and I are hooked on it.  

As for redoing my home  I was hoping to be able to get some paint to start on my family room walls, but just did not make it out. Maybe next week it is going to be in the 20's so  that I can handle. I am getting really tired of looking at my walls, so I am really really ready to get some great sage green on them, with the bottom a creamy off white  on bead board and chair rail.  I have been looking on Ebay for lots of fabric  to make curtains for our patio door. I am thinking of a  silk for raw silk. Something that will flow really pretty and puddle on the floor. Not sure of the color though, but no pattern to to, just plain. So when I find it I will make sure I post about it. Which could be a while, I am a very picky person, until I find what I want nothing else gets done until I find it.  Not sure why but that is how I am.  I have my own way of cleaning and even putting in the trash bag..  Now  is that normal?? Please tell me that some one else out there  is the same way..... 

Well ladies  I smell my Pizza, and  I am getting hungry now, lol So I thank you all for all the comments and the visits, even though I have not posted in a couple of days.  Sorry about that.  I hope you all who are getting all this very COLD WEATHER  are staying warm inside.

Have a great weekend; and please keep stopping by, I love your comments. Gives me something to look forward to during the long cold days.......   You are the best.....................  God Bless;

Hugs;

Stay warm! I cannot even imagine weather that cold. I do remember one winter where it was about 10degrees. That is really cold for this part of Tx. Enjoy your weekend.

It does not get that cold here in California. We worked outside a bit and did errands without taking a jacket or sweater. It does cool down after dark.

I cannot imagine that kind of blistering cold. I hope the weather improves so tolerable temps. I heard on the news the midwest and east are just getting hammered by an arctic storm. I wonder if that's the one we had a couple of weeks ago. We had ice and for that to happen "here" is just odd!
Please stay warm & take care!
As for having a certain way of doing things...there is nothing wrong with that! I'm the same way :0) I even go as far as the TP roll...it must roll with the sheets coming off the top (over) not under (bottom) .

It sure sounds like you are keeping busy with allll the cold outside....I have never lived in the snow so the long winter nights and days probably would be a little hard on me not being able to get out..but staying at home I would like that part....have a wonderful aftrernoon.

Hi,
It's been cold here in Mississippi, but not as cold as it is there!

Stay warm! Maybe we'll have an early spring!
