Only 74 Days Till Spring

January 6, 2009

Br-r-r-r! It's just bit nippy this morning. I hear the heat coming up from the furnace, but where does it all go? I won't say that it's a bit cool in my house, but when you make a cup of coffee, you have to gobble it up right away or it is cold. Nothing tastes as good as cold "hot" coffee. YUK!

I just had to go put my "snuggler" on. Boy, that sure helps! I hate to wish away any time, but I sure could use some Springtime right about now. I am not a snow bunny and I don't do skiing. So after the prettiness of the first snows, I have had all I need of the white stuff. Now I need warm, sunny, and flowers. Dream on Edna.

This morning folks, I do not have a photo. Until the weather changes, there is not much outside my door to photograph. I will get some this afternoon when I go out to the store. This is where the hard part of my project comes in. When it is cold out, I just don't want to go out unless I absolutely have to. So the photos can be hard to come by at times.

I did however, work on a couple of challenges. And I turned one of them into a freebie QP for you. The brush challenge was of a Valentine's theme, so that will be your freebie today. The other challenge was the "My Favorites" challenge and this month it is about books.
My favorite author is Rosamunde Pilcher. And I think my two most favorite books are her "September" and "Shell Seekers." All of her books are hard to put down until you are finished reading them. Another wonderful author is her son, Robin Pilcher. So here is my layout for the Favorites challenge.

How about an update on Howie? His antics have been getting more and more difficult to handle, especially during the night when it is quiet and everyone is asleep. So now his doctor has given him something to help him to relax and sleep through the night, and it seems to be helping quite a lot. Maybe now poor Moo can get some good winks during the night.
How about we talk a bit about food. Some foods, I just love! Pasta is right up there at the top of the list! But like so many others, sometimes I tend to overdo it. I know I could stand to lose a few pounds, but I just can't live on rabbit food and raw carrots.
Now there is someone who is very good at putting together healthy, satisfying meals, and still keep within your dietary limits. You should have a look at The Chronicles of Nani. Her meals are delicious and low cal, and you can visit her @ If you need a little inspiration to help you stick to your diet, this is the place to go.
The heating oil man is here now so I have to leave to pay him. Enjoy your freebie, and Y'all have a great day now.
Hugs, Edna B.

Glad to hear Moo is getting more sleep. Just had a look at Nani's blog - food looks yummie to me !I like that sort of stuff. Your Challenge layout is great, I tried to read the books of R.Pilcher but prefer something a bit more exciting.You might like Victoria Holt - she has written some great books as well-do you know any of hers?
Hugs Snowy
