Good morning everyone. I hope you’re all having a great weekend. Has anyone done anything special or fun this weekend? Here in Alberta it was much too cold to do anything but stay inside unless you’re a die hard winter fan which I’m not! We had a winter storm this past week and got a dump of snow but it’s really the cold winds that are the worst. With the windchill it’s about 20 below in Fahrenheit – very cold. Worse yet is that Sammy still seems to love it out there even though it’s so cold. I’ve been putting his boots on – it’s just too cold without them. I let him out once without them and he was lifting his paws within a minute or two. It’s a battle to get those boots on though. I’ll have to get a picture of him this winter all dressed up for you guys. I didn’t this week but I will.
I haven’t been doing too well with my reading. I just can’t seem to motivate myself to read. I’m really tired though so that could be it. This cold weather really does take my steam right along with it. Normally I like to read in bed early in the evening and into the night once I get Sammy to sleep but lately I’ve been falling asleep with him. Luckily after tomorrow it is supposed to be warming up – thank God!
What’s up for the blog this week. Well let’s take a look…
Monday – Review of So Far Away by Christine W. Hartmann
Tuesday – Book Spotlight/Giveaway of Running Away to Home by Jennifer Wilson
Wednesday – Still up in the air
Thursday – Guest Post/Giveaway with Melissa Foster, author of Come Back to Me
Friday – Still kind of up in the air – depends on how much I feel like reading
Saturday – Book Spotlight/Giveaway of Narrow’s Gate by Jim Fusilli
Now for Sammy. Did I tell you guys that he still wants to go for a walk in this crappy weather. Needless to say we are not going far because his mommy has a really hard time breathing when it gets this cold. So we bundle up – him in his booties and coat and me in so many clothes and scarves that you can barely find me. I just take him a short way down the block and up our alley and he seems happy enough with that. It’ll be nice for him when it warms up though and we can go a bit further. He hasn’t really done anything terribly bad this week – surprise, surprise and other than the battle we have putting his booties on he’s been good. His tummy is a bit off this week so maybe that’s why he’s actually been fairly good. Hopefully this week will be a better week for him. Anyhow I only have a few pictures of him to share with you this week. I’ll try to get more for next weekend.
Oh where or where can I hide my sockie this time??? By the way mommy wants me to mention that I cry the whole time I’m trying to bury my sock. I don’t know why that’s important since all she does is laugh at me but she wanted you all to know.
Ok, I need something else to do now mommy or I’m going to have to find something on my own and you know what happens when I do that – you start yipping at me and chasing me around the house to get whatever it is out of my lips. It’s really no fun for me since obviously it’s something I’d like to chew up.
Maybe I’ll relax a bit although if she keeps up with that camera I’m going to get up and find something to get in trouble with. Mommy says I have a bit of a mischievous look in my eye and she’s probably right. I do spend my days looking for things to chew or destroy. It’s a pretty good pastime in my doggie world.
Well that’s it for me. I’m going to spend the day trying to read and not freeze. Hopefully I’ll finish up my laundry and get the bed changed as well. I still have my summer clothes to put away and pull out any of the winter stuff that still fits. After losing almost 47 pounds I can tell you that nothing fits me anymore and I never did pop into the store to buy some warmer stuff. I’m not a fan of shopping for clothes but I’m going to have to at least get some pants. It doesn’t matter if sweaters are too big but your pants falling off isn’t really a good thing.
I hope everyone has a great week. I did an awful job of visiting your blogs this week. My motivation for that is nil as well but I’m going to try to get my butt in gear this week. I miss everyone and knowing what’s going on in your lives so if anything important has happened please let me know. With it warming up again my hands should feel better and I can get my commenting fingers going I hope. Take care everyone!
