Welcome to Virginia!

One week ago, this was my view..It was 80 degrees, blue sky..just wonderful convertible weather!
This weekend..winter arrived! 40 degrees, windy, rainy..just gross! so this is my view..I usually hate using the flash on my camera..I think I may have actually used it once since buying it 1 1/2 years ago. But last night..I couldn't resist using the flash to capture these grainy photos. Dante loves the fireplace.

But oddly, it is supposed to be 70 degrees again next weekend. For now..we are just trying to stay warm.

It looks like a cozy way to keep warm to me! I'd still rather have eighty degrees, though!

Your fire looks great, hopefully it will be warm once again.

We have had those kinds of weather swings here. Fireplaces make it all better!

I'm thinking that Dante is the only one who's enjoying the cold weather -- but then again, who could blame him? How many of us can say we have a nice comfy bed in a prime location :)

Anyway, just happened to stumble upon your blog and wanted to say hello. I'm a big fan of dogs -- Greyhounds especially -- and just started working for a coffee company that directly supports The Mobile Greyhound Adoption Center. I was so psyched when I found out! Green Tree Coffee & Tea actually makes 4 "dog friendly" blends and donates $1 per pound that they sell to the adoption center. Cool, huh? Anyway... you should check out the website:

...especially if you're a coffee drinker, know a coffee drinker, want to support a good cause... or get an early start on Christmas presents :)

Take care... enjoy the fire.. and I hope it gets warmer for you guys!! Feel free to get in touch with me at any time -- or toll free at (877) 338-0040
