We are in the middle of a heat wave here.   It is 40 degrees right now and some ice has melted but there is still a ton of snow on the ground. If it doesnt snow anymore I will be very happy but they say back to the teens on Friday and snow. Grrrr

  1. Hi Annie,
    I enjoyed your answers on that meme. I might try that for tomorrow :)LOL heatwave. We are still as you know in the 80's hoping to cool down tomorroe to our regular weather temps in the 70's. I enjoyed the video of the Swingle Singers I have never hear of them. Hope you stay warm! Hugs, Dru

  2. Fun meme, Annie. I like that you included the song. Wondering if Swingle Singers is a tongue twister for Swingling Singles? ;) Love that Pooh quote! Funny cartoon! Hope spring comes quickly for you. I know our taste of summer won't last. Jan- March is usually our rainiest season... if you could call it that since we don't get all that much rain. (((Hugz)))
    PS. How wonderful to be so close to your children/grandchildren. I hate that Justin is over an hour away! I'd like to be able to just walk around the corner, too!

  3. Hi Annie I liked your Meme answers, your name is cute. My daughter's new last name will be Fanning, similar to yours. Have a wonderful week and stay warm, 40 is cold to me, we've been that lately a lot, but the teens are surely brrrrrrrr!
    Big Hugs

  4. I like memes. You learn interesting things about the writer. We've had a heat wave here as well but cooler temps are on the way.

  5. Hi Annie;

    ;-} Loved reading your answers to the A-Z meme, especially your L, M & Q. I also love your new header by the sea with your clothes on the line. It's my favorite so far. I did the "make your own album" meme for today. It was such fun. BTW, I'm raising 2 hands being tired of snow. LOL! Keep warm and have a great day my friend. Hugs

  6. Ciao Annie :) Oh, I L-O-V-E your new header, so pretty! I would love to live in a cozy charming cottage by the sea like this one *dreamy face* I enjoyed your answers on the A-Z meme, esp. A and K :)
    Stay warm and cozy :)

  7. Hello Annie, great meme. It's a lovely idea! I love your new header, I have the feeling that you're looking forward to spring ;o)
    Have a great day & stay warm, snow seems to be heading your way.

  8. HI Annie, I thought maybe what parent would do that name their child a rhyming name, but I didn't want to be presumptuous. LOL! well I am sure that is what the kids called you right? Big hugs

  9. May I please live in your header house ? It is so very perfect...especially the Spring flowers and green grass ,
    says she...yearning for an end to the cold weather .
    Listened to the singers...WOW ! Amazing what comes out of talented folks !
    Have a wonderful day...hope you are warm and well...

  10. Hi Annie Fannie, the new header is awesome. There is something about clothes drying on a line that touches my heart. But aren't you afraid they will get covered in snow? (just kidding) The video is absolutely amazing. i loved it so. what talent.
    love the meme, i was just at Toni's and I didn't see it, I will have to look closer.

    When I have more time to play, I might try to make an album cover.

    Love the CS Lewis quote up there, he truly was brilliant.

    stay warm and I hope warmer weather is just around the corner for you and that it stops snowing soon! I'm sure you've had enough.

    thank you for the condolences. it was such a shock.


I love hearing your thoughts and your visits mean a lot to me.
