Welcome to Winter!
Good Sunday morning everyone although you can see by the above picture that all is not so pleasant here right now. Yes, that’s right – as usual I spoke too soon about our lovely weather and now look. We got quite a bit more snow after I took this picture and we had gotten over 10 inches of snow already at the time of me writing this and it was still going pretty good. It was snowing and blowing and yucky! I got a kick out of Sam Saturday morning as he didn’t even want to venture out for his first walk. He braved the second one although we didn’t go far. It was hilarious though as we went down the alley and he was running inside the tire tracks which were as high as he is. He’d look side to side and then all of a sudden take a big jump over one. lol. Anyhow, while I don’t like snow and icy roads we did need the moisture so I’ll grin and bear it for now. It’s supposed to snow more today as well so we’ll see how much we end up by the time it’s completely over. Spring isn’t that far off… I hope…
I thought I’d update you all on my tests – thank you so much to those of you who sent me emails. That really meant a lot to me. The one ultrasound I had I do have to wait for results but the other — the one lump I had was in fact a cyst and while it’s quite big it’s not bothering me and we’re leaving it alone for now. Unfortunately though I do have one that is not normal and I have to go back in six months for another look. If I notice any changes or if they do at that time, it’ll be a biopsy. So, while I’m worried I’m trying not to really think about it for now. Thank you all for your well wishes and all that good stuff.
Ok, let’s see what’s up for this week. Well my reading has been going pretty good. I’m not getting as much done as I’d like to but at least I’m not in a slump. What I do need to do is clean up this blog a bit and get some monthly updates done and – I know this is bad, but I need to catch up and do last years because I still want a record of my reading for last year. What am I reading right now – Insatiable by Meg Cabot in preparation for Overbite which I’m reviewing later this week and also The Book of Lost Fragrances by M.J. Rose for later this week as well. I haven’t started The Book of Lost Fragrances yet but Insatiable is pretty good! Anyhow, here’s a look at the week ahead…
Monday – Guest Post with Nicole O’Dell, author of Girl Talk and Giveaway
Tuesday – Review of The Book of Lost Fragrances by M.J. Rose

Yes, another very busy week. Oh well hopefully I can do a few posts ahead of time and then it’s not so bad. I usually sit down during dinner and get my posts done or when Sammy is napping otherwise it’s impossible to concentrate. So, I hope you’ll all join me for another fun filled week at the blog!
Well I do have a few pictures of Sammy enjoying the snow for you this week. I’ll tell you though it is close to impossible to get pictures of this guy outside. He does so many funny things out there until the camera comes outside and then that’s it. He stops, gives me the ‘look’ and heads for the stairs or if he’s inside the house turns around and walks away. It is so frustrating! I hope you enjoy the ones I did manage to get!
Hello everyone! Boy oh boy there is a lot of snow here to play in. But… she has that camera… I’ll just scoot up the stairs instead. Ooops, I guess not. She booted my butt back down. Guess the camera stays.
Kind of hard to see with all this snow blowing in my eyes. Do you see how big that snowbank is beside me? Where did that come from? It wasn’t here last night…
Ok, I’ve rooted through the snow a few times and I’m ready to go in. The truth is I’m sick of that camera mommy keeps following me around with. Can’t a puppy just come out and play without being bugged all the time by his mommy.
Ok mommy. Enough is enough. Do you see this snow falling on me and my snowy booties? It’s about time we get inside for that treat of mine!
Now for some book winners and there’s quite a few since I forgot to do the two from last week. Congrats to all…
