Weekend of fire and luv!

It's been FREEZING here in Minneapolis. Well, not really, it's been in the 60's during the day and the 40's at night, but our landlord hasn't turned on the heat, so our apartment has been cold!  And we started thinking about how great it would be to have a nice FIRE in the fireplace.

Sitting in front of fires is one of our main winter activities. So we just had two cords of wood delivered from the fella who delivered it last year.

All that wood is sort of a splurge at this point being that my freelance business as an advertising writer has ground to a halt. Gulp. But I'm making splendid progress on my new novel. (And maybe I should add that I'm just fooling around - that really isn't our apartment pictured above.)

Well, isn't this just love orgy time in blogland. Last weekend, as many of you may recall, was the weekend of anger. But now, oh, love love love. Yesterday I loved my pals LB and Tump.

And now I got an "I love your blog"  award and will give it! I got this award from three different places: Naida at The Bookworm, Marg at Reading Adventures, and Ana and Thea of The Book Smugglers, three great blogs where you can always find good company and smart reviews of an eclectic range of books.

The rules for this award are that you need to:

1) Add the logo of the award to your blog
2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4) Add links to those blogs on your blog
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs!

So I'm officially awarding this award to:

Aymless of Aimless Ramblings
Brie at Musings of Bibliophile
Wendy at Kicks & Giggles
Christine at Happily Ever After
Rachael at What I am Reading
KB at Babbling about books

And I am going to be SO MAD if you don't play. Just kidding. I still have to do Christine's Z. I can't keep up!!
