'Cause if it's not spring yet……I'm going to continue to be a crab! I am SICK of winter!!
Our normal temps for this time of year are high 30's - low 40s. Right now, it's 10! Yes, 10! And all this week the reported high is only going to 17. Not only that good news, but next week (March…in case no one knows)…..is only going to 20 for a high. Everything here is coated in ice! Usually by now, hubby and I have cooked outside at least a few times, but his year our grill is still buried in a snow drift! And poor Toby……the little sweetie looks like a billy goat climbing the drifts to find a good place to pee. I'm telling you, spring can't come soon enough!!!
We did have two birthdays in the family last week though. Hubby's and sweet great niece, Audrey. I naturally had to send her books in special envelopes:
Dummy me forgot to leave an uncolored area in the top space of the "A" snake for Audrey…..duh! But, after I jazzed it up with 6 birthday candles, she figured out it was an "A" cake and loved it! My little granddaughter, Arwen, age 4, is learning to read now too, so soon I will be sending her books!! Every now and then I do send her something………….kids love to get mail.
I got two more "Lady" orders (#68 and #69), so I will be working on them this week, plus continuing to read my stacks of books that I bought. Last week I finished:
"Reconstructing Amelia" by Kimberly McCreight
"Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend" by Matthew Dicks
"Dark Places" by Gillian Flynn
"The Book of Secrets" by Elizabeth Joy Arnold
"Dark Places" by Gillian Flynn was the best of the bunch and (in my opinion) was tons better than her popular "Gone Girl". I really wasn't that crazy about that one at all.
So there you have it….another boring week! I am enjoying every book though. It's been too long since I immersed myself in reading………and my house is showing it. The dust gets thicker! lol Have a good week, my friends. Stay warm!
