Quiet Weekend!

Won't you come on in and sit with me for a little?

I wanted to post the last few days and for some reason my internet was not allowing it and I could have gone to the library but to be quite frank, I'm too cold to go anywhere Hahaha

But come in, I have the heater on and a hot cup of tea, I'm also nibbling on some shortbread which is hitting the spot.

So it's been coldish and cloudy here the past few days and the tips of my fingers and my toes are actually freezing. It's so weird makes me feel like I'm not in Arizona though just one look out the window at the cactus around here quickly squashes that thought.

We've been home all weekend, hanging out, watching tv, reading and laughing and playing games like Dominoes Mexican Train, such a fun game to play.

We've also been enjoying comfort food, you know the kind, the stick to your ribs and sop it up with a bread roll kind, like the delicious beef stew I threw into the crockpot and has been cooking all day.


I'm almost done with the Tracie Peterson book "A love to last forever" and Oh my goodness, if only I had found this author before, I'm loving the book it's so good, I can't wait to finish and review it for you all.

Another thing I've been doing this cold weekend, other than laying under warm covers and cuddling, is watching a bunch of Paranormal shows on YouTube. I love the Living Channel on BBC and unfortunately I don't get it but they have so many good shows, so I'm thrilled that I was able to find a bunch on YT.

Like Living with the Dead and Most Haunted (so irked that they don't show it anymore).

When it all comes down to it, I think the biggest reason I enjoy all these shows is because I get to virtually visit all these amazing, gorgeous cottages in England. I want so badly to one day build our own home and make it exactly like one of those cottages.

Like that one, so pretty

Or this one, yes this one.

It's just a dream, I can have them whichever way I want them right?

Anyway, my tea is getting cold and there's nothing I dislike more than a sip out of a cold cup of teat or coffee. So I'm going to make a new one, grab some more cookies and finish my book.

Lol you like haunted cottages? I prefer my ghostless ;)

You must be brave to watch those programmes. I watched on the other day and it scared me and hubs was with me! :)

Do you like dumplings with your stew? I love dumplings. Lovely comfort food.

Love n' hugs x

...that should be 'mine ghostless' not 'my ghostless' lol

Mari said...

I love those old cottages too - not any ghosts though!

Sheila said...

Oooh I love English Cottages! I would love to have one of my own one day! Some day......*sigh*

Conny said...

Oh the cottages (make mine minus ghosts too!) ... we saw some on a 10 day trip to England too many years ago - in the Cotswolds (keep that in mind when you got England - MUST go to the Cotswolds!!)...

The stew looks scrumptious!!
Stay warm! :)

Renee said...

Those cottages are gorgeous and your stew looks so good! Quiet weekends are the best.

I love the cottage on the movie Holiday! It is hard for me to believe that such really exists! I would love to go there & visit them too!
Now pass the tea please!

Linda said...

Oh Sandra, the h word is hard to hear right now, it is so hot here. I just couldn't imagine a heater on. Wow.

Sounds like you have a good book there.

Try for the shows you can't watch with your cable. I really like it and have been watching past seasons of shows to catch up before the new season starts.

Amy said...

Oh man, my hubby likes those shows :) I can't watch them tho, I like my sleep too much! lol! I get bad dreams, and get all filled with fear... sounds like a lovely and relaxing weekend!

hugs.. Amy
