This weekend was a busy weekend, with blogger meetups, surprises in the mail, bathroom decorating work, projects and general errand-running. I have so much to write about, I'm torn on where to start.
On Saturday morning, I met Phantom Scribbler and Songbird for some book shopping and chats. I have met the wonderful Phantom before, but meeting Songbird was a first. She is as lovely in person as she is on her blog. Very kind and considerate, gives good advice, and is a great listener. All of what you'd expect. Plus, her dog Molly is ADORABLE, and we all know how I feel about dogs. We started out thinking we'd do some book shopping, but couldn't stop the conversation so we headed to a nearby Starbucks to talk uninterrupted. It was warm enough for a long walk outside, even though it is January! Funny, but it didn't feel as if we were meeting for the first time, it was so relaxed and comfortable. I hope we can do it again soon!
When I arrived home later that day, I was surprised to receive a package in the mail from Ninotchka!
When her beautiful daughter was born in September, we made some guesses on her birth date and her size, and I guessed the closest for sweet Anna Sofia's weight! Look at this beautiful wrapping job! You really outdid yourself, Nino!
Nino was sweet enough to send me a prize package! Thank you, Nino! I loved everything!
Josh enjoyed the prizes also. He was more than happy to eat the gummy fishes on Saturday night!
He's just like a kid, this one.
I have so much more to tell you, like all of the projects I've undertaken this weekend. I was right in assuming that my energy for indoor projects would return once the weather went sour. I spent much of the summer outside enjoying our brief summer, and now that the snow has begun to fall fast and furious, I am back to my projects. Saturday it was close to 60 degrees, and this morning my front yard looked like this!
My poor tulips are so confused that this weekend I noticed that a few have sprouted. Does anyone know what happens? Will they freeze and die or just hold out until April? I'll be so disappointed if my first venture into planting bulbs fails miserably!
Hope your weekends were equally fabulous!
