Happy Friday!!

Awwww! Got the teen man/child to school, and the little man fed. I'm a bad mom...bribed him with a large mug of hot chocolate, and put his homeschool lessons on hold until after lunch. Maybe I can get my character outlines finished today. First thing though, I need to finish a beta read before my crit partner thinks I've abandoned her.

I'm so glad today is Friday and I have nothing to do this weekend that requires going out in this ridiculous weather. Our high today is supposed to be 19. *sigh* The low....3 degress. I'm so ready to give away a couple of dogs. The Chihuahua won't go to the bathroom outside when it's this cold and just stands by the door shivering. So he's using his carrier and my laundry room smells awful. Which means he smells awful. Ugh. The two Boston Terrier sisters keep getting out of the fence and running off. We've been hearing a pack of coyotes or wild dogs recently, and I'm afraid the girls will disappear. The rescue lab? She loves me. She goes out, does her business and comes into the warm house to lay around quietly. Good dog. Anyone want a couple of adorable lap dogs? I'll even pay to ship them.

I actually got another box emptied yesterday. By this rate...I'll have everything put up in it's place by 2013. Hubby was supposed to paint a couple of walls before he left, but didn't. I'm trying not to stare at the baby blue walls with gold glitter. Thankfully my chair faces the log walls and I can look out at the trees and landscape. I'm looking forward to Spring when the leaves will be full. The front porch will be beautiful. It spans all the way across the front of the house and has hooks for plenty of hanging baskets, draped with vibrant colored flowers. I took a ton of pictures during our recent "blizzard" and will try to post when I find all of my computer cords. In 2013?

Happy Friday!! Hope your week was productive!

Unpacking...what a drag. Good luck, though. And I hope you have a wonderful and very productive weekend!

PS - It's freezing where I am too. I hate it! Maybe I'm confused, but I thought the south was supposed to be warm?

I hear you about the weather. It's 0 for a high here today, and the low is supposed to be -19 tonight. The wind is brutal, and they say with that it will feel like -30. I am so looking forward to Spring. I envy you your front porch. Sound beautiful. Good luck with your character sketches.

Funny! Those poor dogs have nothing to keep them warm out there piddling. One box down.....Hope you get lots done. :O)

Enjoyed visiting your blog a la referral from Jennifer!

It's wonderful to meet another writerly type!

Hope you can check out my "place,"

We lived in a house with walls like that once. It just makes me wonder what people were thinking when they painted their walls baby blue with gold glitter?

If I lived closer, I would totally help you get your house in order. And I don't want your lapdogs. I have a PITA all of my own. He uses the deck when it's raining. You step outside and smell urine. Not a pleasant thing to have furbabies who are, well, babies.

By the way, I've nominated you for something-something. You have to go over to my blog to find out what.

Wub ya!

Kimberly ~ was a productive weekend. I wish I could say I got the painting done...NOT. ;)

Susan ~ I'm loving the porch. I've been sitting out on nice days and reading. Too bright to take out the laptop. That will be nice for the warm summer evenings though. I hope it finally warmed up for ya.

Diane ~ I'm getting there, slowly but surely.

Patti ~ Love to have ya!! Come by anytime! I'll run by and say hi on yours. :)

Natalie ~ I'm thinking the blue glittery walls were the result of a man. Hmmm. Maybe one that had had a few drinks. :D

Rae ~ If I had the money...I'd fly ya out. :D I've been making sure the dogs make it off the porch. That is my sanctuary! Not wanting the urine smell in my laundry room either though. Thanks for the award, sweetie!! I'll try to do mine this week.
