Sundays on Silverado #28

Life Lately

Current state of mind:

We’ve had not quite as much snow to report in Iowa this week for a change. But, instead we now have arctic cold temperatures to contend with. And by “arctic cold”, let me share with you the details:

Yes, you are reading that correctly. Today’s “high” was a lovely -6 degrees, with it only getting worse over the next couple of ways.

So what have I been up to? Not leaving my house anymore than required…

We are having a quiet Valentine’s Dinner for Two at home tonight.

This cold weather has me ready to bring out alllllll the fresh spring decor, and at least make the inside of my house feel like I’m living someplace pleasant.

In case you missed it, yesterday’s post was about Spring Decor Ideas to Brigthen Up Your Home.

Oh, I’m loving all the Valentine’s Day posts that filled the link party this week with a stunning display of pinks and reds, so I’m featuring them one last time today, since today is Valentine’s Day after all.

  1. Niky – thank you so much for featuring my red tulip tablescape! That’s so sweet of you! I love all the pink and the Valentines – even after the day itself is over! We’ve been out of power like so many others, but it came back today and it’s wonderful to catch up on what everybody’s up to! Brrrrrrrr – you stay warm over there, and thanks again for hosting and featuring!

  2. So many beautiful links to dive into, Niky! Love the features you chose and I hope your Valentine’s celebration was a happy one. I seriously can’t even imagine being that cold. The minute it gets below 70 in Florida I’m hunting for my cardigan. Thanks so much for hosting. Hope you guys stay safe, warm, and cozy. Hugs, CoCo

  3. Lord have mercy that’s cold! Here we’ve had -6 degrees centigrade and I thought THAT was cold! Wrap up, stay in, try to keep warm and fingers crossed spring will be making things more pleasant soon.

  4. ouch, we’re super cold here in southern Missouri too. Below zero and single digits. It’s hard to hear the furnace run 24/7. Snowing most of the day but not a lot of accumulation. I’m just grateful there’s no ice! Love your Valentine’s Day silver tray with candles and hearts! stay warm!!

  5. Oh Niki, those temps are unbelievable! In Alabama we’re bracing for the winter storm hitting tonight and tomorrow, our town will shut down…I can’t handle winter well at all! Thanks for the party fun and have a lovely Valentine dinner~

  6. Oh my goodness, that’s some serious cold. We are supposed to get 4-8+ inches of snow tomorrow here in Tennessee, which is VERY unusual for this region. The whole city will probably be shut down for an entire week. Ha! Thanks so much for hosting, and I hope it thaws out for you soon!

    1. That’s a lot of snow for TN! This weather pattern is nuts! I can imagine it will be hard to deal with for a state that isn’t used to that kind of snow, nor do you probably have the heavy equipment that we do for clearning it, right? Oh my, best wishes for you all!

  7. Nicky, it’s even reaching into Texas! We are definitely not used to these weather conditions. Supposed to be 3 degrees tomorrow! I feel for you! Can’t imagine subzero temps. Stay warm and cozy indoors. Be safe.
    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  8. We’ve in the deep freeze here too for over a week with temperatures in the -30s C (-20s F) and dangerously cold. I’m wearing layers INSIDE the house. Thank you so much for the paper valentine garland feature, Niky! Stay warm and Happy Valentine’s Day. xo

  9. Thanks so much for hosting! I really appreciate the work and time you put in to host a party. I thank you too for visiting each link to pick out features….Stay safe, healthy and happy!!
