I know we need the rain but...

This is what I'm seeing out my office window. Not a pretty sight ~ Pretty ugly and depressing if you ask me. And it's cold and only going to get colder. Yep, freezing tonight and snow tomorrow. Hopefully, this will be the last of it because I *really* am ready for spring.

This is what I'm seeing under my desk:

This is Nestle and he is very worried about all of the thunder outside. It makes him nervous! He goes back and forth from under my feet beside the space heater to look out the window to check out the commotion and back again:

The other dogs are sleeping peacefully in the nest. Not Nestle, he was jumping up and down all wild eyed and panting like a crazy man. I'm afraid he is going to have a stroke or something so I let him stay in my office with me while I work. The problem is sometimes he likes to bark when I'm on the phone. Not good.
I usually keep something soft like a wadded up paper towel on my desk and if I'm on the phone and he starts to bark, I bean him with it. Mean, huh?
Since I'm freezing and the weather is awful and I don't really want to go anywhere, my sweet Douglas is bringing me a hot steak grinder from Bellacino's. Yum!
Yesterday, I went to McAlister's Deli for lunch. In the plaza they had the most beautiful tulips all around. I love tulips. It was just starting to rain but they still are so pretty:

Oh! I almost forgot. A few weeks ago Doug and I went to the Tulsa Home and Garden Show. While we were there we saw Priscilla Hauser. She is a decorative painter. I used to watch her on The Carol Duvall Show on HGTV. I was so excited! As is turns out, she has a little painting studio here in Tulsa where we can take a painting class or have painting party with friends or whatever. I have signed up to take a class with her in a couple of weeks. Anyway ~ tomorrow she is supposed to have an open house to show off her studio. So I'm praying the snow isn't bad on the roads and the open house is still on. I'm SOOO looking forward to it!


  1. I love tulips...they're my favourite spring flower.....Your little dog is so cute...I think my old English sheepdog would overpower him though!

  2. Brrr - looks cold! My hubby has lots of family in OK - San Springs & Tahlequah, plus scattered here and there. Little Nestle is just too cute for 'beatings'! LOL Have a great week!

  3. I'm reading Company Girls a little late. :)

    That's so exciting about the painting class! I would like to take one of those.

    And don't you love how personable dogs are? (And shhhh but I completely understand about bopping the dog when he barks, haha.)
