Yippee! We finally got to run up to our cottage for an overnight last night and it was GREAT! The weather was really cold, about 8 degrees, but it was cozy inside. Our friends Debbie and Kenny came over and we cooked a big old steak dinner and talked and laughed for hours. Good friends are just the best! My poor old bike looked so lonely in the snow! It's just hanging out waiting for spring and flowers to be planted in the basket.
I ended up leaving the Christmas decorations up until next time. We only got to enjoy them twice!

You'll be in for a treat by tomorrow night. Our artist, Sally, is opening her home for photos tomorrow and what a home it is! Be sure to come back to visit and bring your drool cloths!
Debbie and I are trying to figure out a way to go to the shows in Ohio at the end of the week. I really want to go, but I don't want to get into a bad weather situation. Help me bribe the weatherman to give us good weather through next Saturday!
Well, it's also good to be home and I'm ready to snuggle in for the evening and watch a little t.v. Remember, come back tomorrow to see a wonderful old house!
Until next time...

  4. Dawn,
    Are you coming to the markets that are in Columbus? I'm about an hour away from there and I checked out the weather...calling for a little snow on Monday, but the rest of week is looking good without any snow or bad weather at all as of right now.

  5. I love your frozen bicycle photo! :)
    I hope you all had fun.
    Oh no---we need snow--- the Winterfest in Mackinaw City is this weekend---so we really need snow and cold. I know what--- just this once, if you get any snow this week, call out the troops, set out any huge fans available, and send it up here please!!! :D
