I find our weather interesting. We are used to the ever-changing weather where we live, but this past week was truly interesting. Our week started off with a polar vortex that blew through here with temps below zero, to us waking up this morning to the ground all covered in that white stuff again. Ug. It has warmed up to 46 degrees today, which we are so thankful for. A heat wave from Monday!
But, without any complaining, I headed back outside and cleaned off the driveway (again) and decided I would take a little time for myself and built two snow doggies. I built a snow dog Nikita and a snow dog Bella which sit high on top of a snow pile at the end of the driveway. They both have little sticks in their mouths and Bella is sitting next to a red colored ice ball that I froze in a balloon in the freezer and added some red food coloring. The red ice ball actually looks like one of Bella’s balls sitting next to her! Gotta love it!
While I was outside, I decided to take down all of our Christmas decorations while it was somewhat warm outside today. I got tired of looking at them, so I felt it was time for them to get stored away. Only the gutter lights are still up since I need some assistance to take these down. I did hang the wood LOVE sign I made on the front door, to welcome VAL-entine’s Day with open arms!
We finally got our mailbox replaced by the city yesterday, so now our mail will not blow out because we have a door that actually closes now! Nikita watched diligently by the front window while the city workers threw our old mailbox into the back of their truck and installed a new one. Don’t worry, Bella was watching at the front door too, as she does not miss a thing that goes on in the neighborhood.
We are getting really excited for next week, because American Idol Season 13 starts on Wednesday & Thursday. So, if you are an Idol fan, make sure you don’t miss the first episode, as Keith Urban will be returning as a judge, along with Jennifer Lopez, and the heart-throb Harry Connick Jr.! We are excited for this season of Idol as we won’t miss the cat fights that happened last season from Mariah and Nikki. Their fighting actually took away a lot of time from the contestants who were trying to get their gold ticket to Hollywood. So, stay tuned as we do our weekly update of our favorites!
We hope your week was a good one and we’re glad it’s Friday already! Can’t wait to see what the weekend will have in store for us! What plans do you have for the weekend?
