And up we go ..

Make yourself indispensable,
and you will move up
Act as though you are indispensable,
and you will move out

  1. But sometimes those "indoor" cozy days are the best! I hope you and your kids enjoy it and don't get bored! :)

  2. I kind of like horrible weather as long as it doesn't appear one too many times. Sounds like a sweet day...and I love your photo (again).

    Hugs from the other side of the world....

  6. HALLO MIJN LIEVE VRIENDIN! We had a TON of snow fall today and it is getting chilly! But it is cozy and it is an opportunity to get creative although I had a lot of grading of tests to do for my 50 kids! Do you get snow out there?

    Here is wishing you dearest one and wonderful SUNDAY! BISOUS, Anita

  13. Although I do love bright and sunny days wit blue skies, I think cozy stay home days are just as special, especially if they fall on the weekend and you can stay home all snuggly! Enjoy and have a great day. :) Tammy

  30. Horrible weather: Yes! unfortunately...
    Shuffle boarding: No! unfortunately...
    Iron boarding: Yes! ...unfortunately...
    But that won't get us down, all those people having a flood in their houses now, that's much worse! I wish for blue skies, no more rain and al lot of courage for all of them!
    And a staircase like the one you've been showing us in your latest posts(is this really your house???)to go UP!
    Have a great week with hopefully blue skies!

  31. Lieve Saskia, we had horrible weather as well - but today was friendly and sunny. For my taste, the hwole of winter could be like that - 2 weeks of snow and chill would do for me! The best thing in winter is being able to wear boots - which i love. And blogging! Your photo is gorgeous! Fijne zondag avond!
    P.S.: if the mag hasn't arrived yet, it will soon. My husband kept waiting till we finished all the envelops, so it got out here on friday. Sorry for being late ;)
