One Last Fire and a Cup of Coffee

The weather was so beautiful last weekend. Sunday the thermometer said 70. Not in the sun, actual air temp. Short sleeves, yard work, window washing weather.

Yesterday morning the thermometer said 22 degrees! That's just wrong. But it goes to prove who's in charge here, and it's not us. Mother Nature says we're not done with winter just yet. Or maybe it's just that she's not done with winter. This morning it was in the high 20's with a forecast for mid 40's this afternoon, so there's hope.

The Sunday morning ritual around here is coffee and the paper in front of a fire. Last weekend it looked like that was over for this winter. I almost cleaned out the fireplace this week but didn't. I must have had a premonition that there was one more fire left in the winter.

No one enjoys the fire more than Lucy. She likes her coffee, too. If we could only teach her to read.




A shameless plug here: If you haven't already visited Words of Wisdom, please go take a look.

I LOVE that last picture of Lucy. I want to cuddle up with her (with a book, of course). Maybe I could read aloud to her!

Twenty-two degrees just shouldn't be a temperature. It's not right.

And those are very cute photos of Lucy. It's a rough life, but someone's gotta do it, right??

I was going to say she needs her pipe and slippers, too...but then remembered she IS a she, haha! Well, unless she's like Lil Abner's granny and smokes a corncob pipe! These pictures were SO cute!

Lucy is adorable! Today is my daughter's birthday and she has to drive back to school - 3.5 hours - and it's so ugly and wet out. She swears it rains every year on her birthday.

I have finally accepted that winter will never end!

It was sunny and mid 70's here in Vegas. But a cozy fire is always a welcome thing, so I wouldn't complain if we had one more chance to do that. Oh, we have a Lucy too and she loves coffee. She's like a little old lady - she likes coffee and whiskey.

I just love Lucy, what a cool dog. ;)

Lucy is one smart dog! (but then I am convinced that our dogs are smarter than all of us!) She certainly knows where the best seat in the house is on a cold morning! My Bailey does the same thing, and has, in fact, dragged his bed in front of the fireplace!!!

Luckily once we get through this rain the next few days the warmer temps are coming back! 70 by Friday and 80 by Easter!!! :-)
