Good evening,

It's been a wintery day here, I was so hoping that after yesterday's heavy rainfall and warmer temp that winter would be gone....nope, it seems it did not want to stay away :( most of our ice and alot of our snow had melted and we had lots of mud and brown grass was showing , until today. All week it has been very windy and today we had snow, than hail and snow again. Enough to cover the ground and stick :P It's quite chilly out tonight and I hate bundling up to take the dogs out for potty breaks, lol. So tonight, I am sitting in the cozy livingroom with the fireplace on and watching my Friday night show...Canadian Pickers! Oh how I wish I had the money to travel across country going to peoples houses and pick through barns to find such wonderful treasures. Well at least I am learning what to look out for when I do venture out to antique shops and goodwill stores so i know what things are worth, lol.
Today was a P.A. day for my kids, than March break starts on Monday! I bet by the end of the week I will be frazzled. Perhaps my dear mother inlaw will take some of the kids for a few days to give me a break, she's good for doing that :D Sunday there is an auction that I'd like to go to and we are having my inlaws over for dinner to celebrate my father inlaws birthday, so I guess I will have to make sure all my house cleaning is done tomorrow and hope my hubby keeps it clean on Sunday if I do go to the auction....I won't hold my breath on my hubby keeping it tidy lol, because the NASCAR race is on again that day and everything takes a backseat when the race is on :( The weather is suppose to warm up nicely by Sunday hitting 14 degrees, that's in the almost 60 farenheit! Perhaps we will bbq dinner! And on Wednesday up to 16 or 17 so hopefully the kids can get outside and play and burn off their winter energy :)

Well, I think that's about it for tonight, I will get back to my show.....

Thanks so very much for stopping by for another visit, and I will be sure to post any pics if I get to the auction!

Have a wonderful night and stay warm,

Blessings, Trish


  1. I love American Pickers, too. Good luck at the auction. I'm going to Goodwill tomorrow. Maybe I'll find another bowl!!!

    Our weather is beautiful, a bit overcast today but the flowers are all in bloom and I just love it. Of course, when it gets more moderate in your neck of the woods I will be sweating!

    Show us what you 'catch' at the auction.


  2. Thanks for visiting Pam! and I will indeed share what I got at the auction if i get to go :) I can't wait til our flowers are all in bloom, I will dream through your flowers until then! Have fun Goodwill shopping and i hope you find another bowl!

    Hugs, Trish
