Warm

Hi again!
I am sitting here in the dark writing this, with the only light being that from my dying fire and my dying computer.  
You see the gales of November are upon us here in Michigan and that means that not only is it approaching the winter season but it also means that it is power-outage season in my neck of the world.
We live in the woods and well, you know.
So I have been trying to keep warm by finding lovelies on Pinterest. :)





















and just for fun.....






How YOU doin'?


So I hope you have a wonderful weekend and stay warm, maybe one or all of these will help.
 I know some of the areas of the US are getting hit pretty hard with some nasty weather and hopefully you are not sitting in the dark as well.
Hopefully the power is back on by the time this posts.
Although it is kind of peaceful for now. :)

Hugs!!!

Tonya said...

LOL! That made me smile! Love me some Ryan Reynolds! Such a cutie! My favorite movie of his is "The Proposal" with Sandra Bullock! They were so cute together in that movie & Betty White was hysterical! If you haven't seen it, its a must see!!

trumatter said...

Hahahaha...honestly that put a smile on my face too. The last pic was a good idea. Very in fact. Know what I mean? I'm sitting in a cold, dreary blue and white editorial office cubicle which is shabby but not chic. Just shabby. Like moss green. Not ruffles.

Martina said...

Ha ha, lovely autumn post here! It's damp and grey outside where i live, but for today, i quite enjoy this mood! Have a lovely day Michelle!

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

Brandi said...

Hope your power is back on and you're warm and cozy!

Hartwood Roses said...

Ooohhh ... kittens!!!

You just reminded me that I have to go sweater shopping. I purged a lot of my old ones this year, and I need to restock. :)

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

um yes, ryan reynolds can come keep me warm any night.
and i love buying sweaters that have sleeves long enough for me to tuck my hands into them. :)

Backwoods Cottage Pam said...

Cozy photos, all of them. Glad you are keeping warm. I have yet to venture into Pinterest...I just have not had time and I know I will need plenty to explore. Our weather is lovely even if it is cold. But I have come down with a cold. First one in years so I shan't complain. Just sets me back in schedule. Maybe this is a good time to check out Pinterest.

Debbie said...

I think Ryan would keep anyone warm! Even without a shirt(him of course).

Deborah said...

A Vintage Vine said...

Those are great images....especially that last one! Stay warm! Sometimes you make me want to move to the woods of Michigan and bag this warm Texas thing!

chiara said...

Hallo Michelle! it seems rather weird for me to think you're on the side of the world reading me right now.. I know, the greatness of the web! Thank you so much for your lovely comments, you know I love you and your blog and reading of you in my blog mekes me proud.
I love interest, too. It's kind of a drug to me!
many hugs
Chiara

chiara said...

Red Gate Farm said...

Ha! I really loved the little kitten pic until I got to the last one of course ;)

At least you're having a good time with your computer while you can! Perhaps a generator should be in your future?

High Street Cottage said...

Michelle, I really can't complain here where I live, but for a few years we did live in Illinois and I have to say, since then...I havn't really been cold. Those winters made me realize what cold really is. So, here's a few warm hugs I'm sending your way...thank you for the inspirational photos, tami

Robin said...

**sigh** Nothing better than a pretty face and a pair of jeans! LOL.

Kristin said...

That last photo was quite a nice surprise!! lol

Hope you stay warm...I'll see if I can send you some of our 70 degree weather. :)

Alabaster Rose Designs said...

Loving that last photo!! You made me laugh with the "How you Doing?". Love your blog and I can't wait to visit your past posts!
I'm a little jealous that your able to enjoy a fire where you are. In So Cal, we don't have much need for a fire, but it always makes me think of winter.
Hope you have a lovely day.
Sincerely,
Melinda

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

Oh my, thanks for that! I'm all warm and toasty now.
We had a little cold front go through here. Nothing like you have I'm sure :)

Salina said...

Everything looks so very cozy...especially that last photo. ;)

Patti's Artful Design said...

Oh my...things are heating up over at Emerald Cove:)! LOL Visiting your blog is always such a treat for me:) Lovely music, lovely picts, and that lovely (ever changing) blog header of yours:) Have a great holiday season, Michelle.

Green Willow Pond said...

I smiled and felt warmed by the cozy sweaters. I began to warm even more next to that fire (it needs a couch or something to lay down on in front of it). I melted when I saw the kittens, then I burst into flames when I saw Ryan...or maybe that was just a hot flash...excuse me, I need to go take a cool shower.

Gwendolyn said...

I heard on the news that some areas of Mi. were without power.. sorry to hear you are one of them. It sure was cold here today in Grand Haven. Time to start making some cozy fires in the hearth. And I need to go buy some long underware. Brrrrrrrr!
light some candles, drink some cocoa and stay warm.
Blessings~

Oh my, those cute kittens make me feel warm all over!

Loretta Fontaine (APPLESandRUBIES) said...

Michelle- Keep warm!

I do know what you mean by the glow of the computer screen. My in-laws live "in the woods" and once the power conked out and we opened the laptops for the nice glow way before we found any candles! Ha ha!

Sadly, batteries do die down. Hang in there!

Power outages are the worst! We just had a two day outage right before Halloween - not fun! Stay warm - loved the pictures. You brought a smile to my face!
Take care!

Hope the powers back on! Love the first photo of the grey sweater. I would love that with some jeans and boots.

semplice said...

Love the comfy sweater! I live in Kentucky but my family has a summer home in the UP of Michigan. On my phone it is set to that weather.. and a bit chilly it is today!

Tricia said...

I saw that cute little pile of kittens and thought I'd love to have those....then, I saw the next picture and thought MmmmMmmm. Wouldn't you like to cozy up to him in front of a fire...with some kittens too, of course. Ryan Reynolds is so delicious.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

I was gonna say, "I LOVE THAT FIRST SWEATER AND THAT FIREPLACE" but then that last photo.........yikes!

LOVE YOU DEAREST! Anita

Carolyn@SweetChaos said...

Your pictures actually make me wish it were colder here! Cozy blankets, a warm fire, hot coffee and an even hotter Ryan Reynolds sound very appealing :) Stay warm, my friend!!

A Cottage Muse said...

Ok Michelle...I thought I'd stay warm by the fire...then the kitties stole my heart...then, well that last photo...totally hot! Thanks girlfriend!

Valerie@chateaualamode.typepad.com said...

Stay warm Michelle :) You are so good at posting. I loved all the photos you shared today. That last photo is great but it was really the little kittens that got me...I'm such a sucker for them :)
Enjoy your weekend!

I had to go back and check out Ryan's picture 3 times LOL!! Um, I'm certainly warmer now. ;O)

We haven't lost power...yet. It's only a matter of time around here.

Beach hugs to you & the family,

Julie@beingRUBY said...

Glad I didn't read this yesterday.. it was over 38c here.. way too hot way too soon!! although maybe I could have pretended it was cold!!

Hope the weather sorts itself for you Michelle.. and have a great week.. ciao xxx Julie

Kate Coveny Hood said...

I love the image of sweater sleeves and a hot mug of...something. That pretty much sums up winter for me!

The DIY Show Off said...

lol - all images to warm things up. We got your weather last night over here further east...but we stayed south of tornado warnings, just some high winds and tons of rain.

Not a fan of winter at all, especially when the snow hits us but I do love warm sweaters and hot drinks.

Rose West said...

The wind is wild outside right now, so this post is just great. My definition of cold is probably a little different from a lot of people (anything below 70 is freezing!), but it feels like it's time to curl up with a blanket and a book. I think I'm ready for some tea! Oh, and I do believe winter was invented for sweaters, and not the other way around ;)
