Brrr....It's Turning Cold!



It was so cold in the mountains this weekend...
I told Rob that if we were ever to retire here on a year round basis...



I would get into my pajamas on Columbus Day....
...climb into bed and not come out again until April!

...April is usually when the ice on the lake finally disappears.



The frosty air made me want to come inside by the warm fire...and begin to think about indoor activities...baking, art projects, family games...



and snuggling up in warm wool blankets with furry friends....



Well, maybe not this fellow...but certainly our faithful kitty, Starla...

...Now back home I'm bringing my plants indoors as we are expecting colder temperatures here too! Looking forward to staying home this weekend and getting things organized around here...kind of nice to slow down and stop traveling for a while...
What are your plans for the upcoming weekend?

You'll see from my last 2 posts that I've been slowing down. This weekend, I am hosting a party at my house. That would explain the cleaning and purging too, huh? Bundle up and enjoy! ~Mindy

No plans for the weekend but just selling more "stuff". You should stay in bed with temps -30 degrees. That's even too cold for me!
Stay warm!!!

You are right about the temps going down! For some reason it makes me want to make the house all cozy!

We are FINALLY having colder weather...and RAIN! Yes, it does rain in Southern California...lol! Time to get those warmer PJs and slippers out. And change the duvet to a warmer comforter. Gotta love the change of seasons!

Staying inside by the fake fireplace with heater running. Packing more on the house, drinking hot coffee and reading my new book. Slowing down....

When it is cold and raining I like to stay home and in my pajamas, but this weekend I will probably go to Hood River, Oregon for their Harvest Festival and get some fruit to put up. Have a great week. Florence

It's happening here in the U.K., Laura. The cold weather has started, although not too chilly yet.It's still really Autumnal, but this morning has a real chill in the air.
We are painting three rooms !!!! It's about time. Trouble is, we seem to help our children paint and decorate their houses and ours has been neglected.
Well, it's our turn now !!!!
Lovely photographs Laura, giving us a real picture of how you will be spending the late Autumn. XXXX

Hello Laura,
ohhh, yes, it's cold outside, first time this season i have to scraping ice from my car when i drive to work... On Saturday i also like to snuggling up in a warm blanket and have some nice afternoon tea. On Sunday i hope we will visit an antik market in Belgium, but it depends from the weather...
Have a great cosy day

I am the opposite of you! I love the cold weather and consider anything over 60 degrees to hot for me!! Although the flip side is that cold weather does make it tougher to attend flea markets, guess I can't have it both ways...lol...

marie said...

We're going to the pumpkin patch and apple orchard with the grandbabies this weekend. All those beautiful fall colors plus grandbabies equals lots more fun photos. Can't have enough of those. There's a hay ride too!

I love your checker set!

Shhhh ~ I heard the possiblity of snow mixed with rain sometime in the next few days ~ the first sighting of snowflakes always excites me and I just read of a Winter Storm Watch for the Northern Tier of PA. Maybe some will fall my way ;-)
Stay warm!
