Pink Saturday No Show

I wasn't going to participate in Pink Saturday this week as I had a gazillion things to do today. But sitting down to a quiet evening tonight I thought I would go ahead. Unfortunately I missed the deadline by a few hours. Note to Blondie: Start writing on your calendar, it's not just there for the pretty pictures! :-)

Well just for giggles I downloaded some pictures and I think the ones I snapped this morning qualify as pink, so I'm posting them for anyone who visits.

Above is a picture of my baby boy, Milo. He is a rat terrier (very much like a Jack Russell). He loves to sleep in cozy warm spots and this morning The Husband and I shared coffee in front of the fire before he went off to work. Milo curled up like a baby and in no time was off to dreamland. Note there is some pink in my couch, just a little. I love pink, but I love a lot of colors (they go along with my multiple personalities) ;-) I do favor pastels though, with a few punches of bright hues here and there. The couch is fading a bit but I like that, flowers fade too!

While I was stoking the fire I took a picture of my favorite chair. The bright early morning sun made it look so pretty. This is my favorite spot to curl up and read, it's very comfy and right next to the fireplace.
Hopefully I will have my act together to participate in some of the theme days next week. They look like such fun and I enjoy seeing what my favorite people post.
Tomorrow we are off very early to the lake. I'm so looking forward to it as I have not been there since last October. Our resident carpenter finished our outdoor work and moved inside and it has been quite a mess. New hardwood floors were put in throughout and he had to replace the huge windows in the great room as the seals had broken and gases had turned them yellow. Though that work has been done I still hope to get some before and after pictures. I really look forward to summer when I can post pictures of the outside. That was a big job, extending our patio out to a retaining wall and building a little guest house. I also started a little English garden and am so psyched to start adding more to it. I will come home Sunday with some pictures that I will take this weekend. We plan to just stay in, keep a fire going in the fireplace and the big old wood burning stove we have, rent some movies which I haven't done in ages, and maybe pop out for dinner. There definitely will not be any long walks in the woods or iceskating because of the cold but it will be good to be back.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and though it is starting to sound monotonous, stay warm! :-D

I'm so glad you found me, so I could find you. You're right, I think we might be kindred spirits.
I love your pink Saturday post. and the chair looks very inviting. On colds days like this, I could sit there and read all day.

Curling up in front of the fire, renting movies, staying tucked in all weekend? Yes please!!!
My brother lives in Michigan...I think all of us Northern States are equally as cold!
Stay warm yourself. :)

Happy Pink Saturday, Janie! I love MILO! How cute is he? And I have multiple personalities with you... love lots of colors, too. So maybe that's why we're such good bloggy friends! :-)

Sending much love to you this cold Saturday.

Hello Jane, thanks so much for stopping in to visit me. I love your sweet Milo all curled up--it's just freezing here in NC! I would love to see some pictures from your visit to the lake--hope it was a very nice weekend!

Milo looks like such a a sweetie! I love your reading nook. I love to read and I can just see myself curled up in that cozy chair.

Sigh...Boudreaux did come back from the bird chasing. That dog is going to give me a heart attack one day!

I'm seriously going to have to do Pink Saturday one of these days. Seems like everyone I know is doing it.

That chair looks so comfy. I could curl up in it right this minute and take a nap. And, isn't Milo so precious?!

Can't wait to see the work you've done. As someone who is currently remodeling, I'm always interested to see what others have done or are doing.
