Finally, A Heat Wave at 30 Degrees!

It took awhile to warm up, but boy....did we catch a nice break today!

 It was sunny inside and out.

 99.9% of the painting is done.  Tomorrow we can put the books back on the shelves.
 The living room is coming together....at last.
 I tried to simplify....simplify....simplify.

 It was still 30 when I went out to do evening chores.
 The girls were in the mood for some selfie shots.

 After they were tucked in, I took a quick shower and we were off to Maryellen and Jay's for dinner.  When we arrived there was a roaring fire going in their woodstove and it was so comfy.
 They have two cats and one very sweet dog.

 Dined at 8.  What a great meal.
We brought a salad and some rolls
 Maryellen made...
corn (from their garden)
 roast beef
 mashed potatoes
 and a spectacular berry pie.
 (Blueberries and raspberries from their garden)
 A very relaxing evening...just like their rag doll cat was having.
Night all.


  1. Not sure about you, but down here, -1 Celsius is hardly a celebration. Painting looking good, and as always super meals. I hope the weather improves soon, you need snow free days and warmer temps. Cheers from Jean

  2. Yes it is warm here this morning I am looking forward to getting out there with a few less layers on. I will take it. Enjoy Lori we never know how long it will last. Hug B

  3. I had a feeling your heat wave was still freezing

  4. Warm here today with about 30.

    Love the pics and that pie looks delish.

  5. Hi Lori! *waves*

    Im finally visiting everyone - January i get the 'sads"...its either forego the sunscreen and get wrinkles faster or get sun...

    Looks like everyone is surviving quite well over there - and that is a heat wave- coldest winter this year ack!


  6. The living room is looking great. The bookshelves look huge when they are empty.
    Maryellen's dog reminds me of Kersey.
    I want that dinner. All of it.
