Midwinter R and R

The house/cat sitter has been arranged and will be here in a week. The packing will start soon and the anticipation of a warm getaway is in my thoughts. We've had way too much really cold weather this winter and I'm ready for a change!

Sorry Guy, you and Dot have to keep our house sitter entertained!

I'll be closing down my Etsy shop for a few weeks for some rest and relaxation. I'm going somewhere warm and hopefully sunny.

Trading ice castles for sand castles!

I'll be back posting sometime in March. For many of you, the signs of spring will already be arriving. Winter for us here in Minnesota lasts till May!

I'll try and drop in on your blogs when I have time. 
Here's where I'll be,  in a chair like this sipping on a cool refreshing cocktail .... ahhh....

Bye for now, see you in a few weeks!


  1. I'm a Minnesotan too, and I hear you on being ready for a change. Enjoy!
    Glad I found your blog. I'll enjoy following the words of a fellow Minnesotan.

    1. Thanks Debi, only true northerners understand that while we love it here, it's nice to go somewhere warm for a bit!

  2. Enjoy your winter getaway! Have a cocktail by the pool for me!

  3. Sounds wonderful! Have a great time!

  4. Thank you Debra and Martha, I'm looking forward to the warm weather and maybe a cocktail or two! I always miss my kitties though!

  5. Diane, I know it's going to be just wonderful! Enjoy your well deserved "warm" vaca break!

  6. Diane, have a great time away! Relax and have fun! I love that pink chair! Yes, you are right, winter does stay with us till May! We never plant anything before May! Big Hugs!

    1. Stacy, I've been surprised by a May snow before so I'm no sucker! hahaha Thanks dear!


Thank you for leaving a comment! I do read them all and will try to respond if I'm able. Please know that all comments are appreciated, I love to hear your thoughts on my posts! ~ Diane
