Here we go again

Looks like we are in for another one of those weekends. We are under another winter weather advisory although this one is (as of the time I'm preparing this) only supposed to last until 9am today.
In preparation for the weekend, after I got home from work on Friday I dressed for the occasion. No, I didn't put on my snow suit and mittens and head to the back yard to build a snowman. It was warm cozy lounge pants, slippers and my robe.
After I was appropriately attired I set the scene.
Turn on fake fire place, check

TV, turned on
Kindle close by for my reading pleasure
Laptop also close at hand
Coffee, mug filled and fresh pot brewing
Camera just in case I feel like taking random shots out the window
I've also made a mental note of a couple dozen entertainment options I have to keep me occupied. Now all I need to do is figure out how to stop Monday from coming around so soon

Stay away Monday!
We've got some snow flurries falling but I am no where near as prepared as you are!

Slowing time on the weekend is what we all wish we could do. We need an inventor to get to work.

Ginny said...

We are having snow and sleet tonight, to be followed by an ice storm in the morning. Warnings of downed trees and lines. I'm like you, all of my best entertainment requires electricity, ouch!!! And that is the prettiest artificial fire I have ever seen!!

SweetMarie said...

Sounds comfy and cozy! Your fireplace is beautiful! And you have everything you need except...Duke! Where's Duke? My puppy dogs love to cuddle and they give off great heat. :) When I'm home for the evening I put on comfy pants, t-shirt and slippers. I'm all about comfort!
Focus on the moment and enjoy!

bichonpawz said...

Sounds like a perfect evening...except where is DUKE??? We just know he is there somewhere!! Have an enjoyable weekend and hope it lasts and lasts!!

Duni said...

We have "stay-indoors" weather too. Urrgh. It's depressing.

Jen said...

We've got an icky weekend weather forecast too; ours is just not as pretty to watch as yours (a.k.a. rain). Blech.

Our skies have opened up and are pouring down buckets of rain on us today. Too warm for it to snow...and our fireplace felt absolutely fabulous this morning. Even the pups enjoyed it.

Your fire looks so inviting.
Rather a gloomy day here, no wind, just grey, can't wait until we start to get the spring days.

just remind yourself when you are as old as I am, you can do this any and every day. what you described is my life 7 days a week, except mine is a book not a kindle and i don't drink coffee at night. hope you enjoy your lazy dazy week end. sounds perfect to me. like those light streams passing by your home.

Marg said...

Ann, you make a snowy week end sound like fun. You certainly are prepared to have some great down time, reading, TV and some internet. What could be better. Take care.

Sometimes putting a pillow over your head as you are lying face-down in the bed and screaming, "GO AWAY! GO AWAY!! GO AWAY!!!," works. Well, at least it has on me a few times. (Okay, more than a few. Happy?)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Sounds like a wonderful weekend in store for you, Ann. Wish I could keep Monday from coming around so fast for you.... Dang!!!!

Have fun and enjoy that Kindle.
Hugs,
Betsy

So ... Ann how's your weekend so far?

Done anything exciting like build that snowman with donuts for eyes - wait - that's not right! In any event, enjoy and keep warm.

Sounds like a good snuggle weekend.I am working of course.

Grace said...

Enjoy it for the now, by Monday it will be feeling old, which is not to say that work would be the most enjoyable change of venue...

Helen said...

We finally had some snow last night just 1". The kids were so excited! Hey, Monday! stay away! :)

allotments4you said...

Sounds like heaven...If you managed to stop Monday come round so soon be sure to let me know your secret! Have a good weekend Ann.

Antonella said...

Sounds perfect! Enjoy! We are about to run out and go sledding :-)

Tim Hicks said...

That sounds like a great way to spend the weekend! Here, it's rainy and overcast, but we're expecting more of the white stuff starting tomorrow.
I agree about Mondays! It comes too soon.
Have a great weekend and stay warm :)

Ann said...

I've decided snowy Saturdays are pretty nice! Hope yours has been a good one too.

Whimcees said...

Hello!

You certainly have the right idea! I hope that your weekend is as enjoyable as you have planned! We finally did get heat in our building - it turned out to be the outside vents plugged with snow from our big snow fall! Take care!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Chatty Crone said...

You were sure ready for anything that happened today - so did it snow? sandie

BeadedTail said...

We're having a stay inside kind of weekend too and it's so nice! I hope you can figure out how to keep Monday away!

Reeni said...

I'm snowed in too all snug and cozy! Hope the weekend goes slow!

Kloggers/Polly said...

What wonderful pictures ....... I could almost feel the glow from the fire. We're up in the air again over here - middle of the night temperatures are 7C which doesn't seem possible - keep pinching myself to see if I'll wake up. Trouble is you know that you have to pay for mild Winter weather and the question is how?
Enjoy your weekend and snuggle up and keep warm. :)

silverthoughts2 said...

That definitely made me wish for a nice cozy snowy day where I didn't have to go anywhere!

Sharkbytes (TM) said...

Yup, Monday is here. I'm hoping Om gets our new DVD player hooked up soon... limited entertainment options without it.
