It's been so frigid for days now.  The kind of weather that 
makes me feel like nesting.  I go out only when necessary and
come back home as soon as I can.  If I am not wearing leggings,
wool knee socks, boots and heavy sweaters, then I am in my
flannel pj's, big fluffy robe and shearling slippers.

My Mac died.  Well, it's not totally dead and could be fixed, but 
I decided to put the money into a new one instead of fixing up the
old one.  I have been using David's laptop while waiting for my
new one.  I can hardly wait to have my own Mac again that I don't have
to share.  It's been hard to read blogs and comment and I feel so 
out of the loop right now.  My life has become so intertwined with
yours through blogging that I feel as though I have been living on
a deserted island.  I should be fully connected again this weekend.

I am thinking about painting an antique curio cabinet that is currently in 
my studio.  I have not mentioned this idea to David yet.  I want to paint
it but I am pretty sure that he will not be too happy about it.  I love painted
furniture.  I don't want everything painted, but I don't want everything 
stained either.  Maybe I'll make one of his favorite dinners before
I bring up the subject.  What is it about men and stained wood???

My third blog anniversary is coming up this weekend.  I think that it will be
time for a giveaway.  Don't you?  I'll be giving you the details, so 
stay tuned.  Until then ... stay warm, stay cozy and be happy.

Happily joining ~

Bentley is nesting too.  He is quite content staying inside either
playing with his toys or cuddled up in a quilt.  Smart pup!

Susan and Bentley


  1. Susan - Congratulations on your anniversary!!! I don't know if I'll make it that long. LOL I know what you mean about wanting to paint a piece of furniture. Men just don't understand. I don't know how you handle all of that snow and cold weather day after day after day......


  2. Happy Anniversary!!! Calling for snow here, doubt we'll get it. My "frigid" nesting is laundry, LOL!
    Hope you are having a GREAT week!

  3. Susan, I can commiserate. My laptop was in the shop a week and a half ago to get fixed. After a few days of trying to read blogs on my phone, my sister took pity on me and lent me her I-Pad. I got my computer back yesterday and couldn't wait to post to my blog. Unfortunately it isn't fixed so it has to go back tomorrow. I feel like I'm in withdrawal or something...J

  4. I know our cold is nothing like yours, but we are snuggled inside just the same. Happy Anniversary!
    I got a new Mac this fall. ;-)

  5. We finally got a few days of cold and a little snow in Texas. I am a warm weather person. I like the spring and summer to get out in the yard. Best wishes on your soon three years in the blog world.

  6. I have a lap top and PC . I don't post as much as I used to but if I couldn't read any other blogs I would go nuts . I do so enjoy all that others are up to and what is going on in their neck of the woods its like being on a round trip from home lol ! I like my Pj's best but also like to bundle up and go for walks with my Miggs . Hope your new laptop arrives safe and sounds ! Have a good day !

  7. Congratulations on your blog anniversary! Your little birdies are so cute.

  8. Congrats on your blogging anniversary! I've been nesting too with a little shopping thrown in! Had to shop for some things to tweak the nest. How exciting to be getting a new laptop and a Mac! I've heard great things about Mac computers. Bentley is a smart little pup. We've had some crazy weather here in Michigan 50 degrees for several days and then back down in the 20's. Even your nesting!

  9. Lovely post!! Congrats on your upcoming 3rd Blogging Anniversary!! My 3rd one is at the end of this month and I am thinking a giveaway may be in order too.....


  10. Here in western Pa the frigid temps and howling winds have arrived. I wish I could just nest until spring lol! :)

  11. So pretty! Thank you for joining Home Sweet Home!


Bentley and I LOVE and read every comment.
