Happy Friday all of my wonderful friends! I know this post is a day late and I am really sorry about that.  As you can see, I am still recovering from that terrible cold.  I am feeling better, but still not 100%, so I am just not getting on the computer much at home right now and you all know I can't access this stuff from my office now either.  Anywho...... yesterday I received not ONE but TWO fabulous awards from these lovely ladies - please go check their blogs out - they are 2 beautiful women who I am so thankful to have a chance to get to know through the bloggy world:  The first award I received was the Sunshine Award from Mae Rae over at In and Out of the Bubble.

And as promised, here is a picture of my deck after it snowed.  I never made it outside Wednesday afternoon to take pictures before my husband and son worked hard to snow blow and shovel the snow from our other decks and driveway and steps.  I hope to get more pictures this weekend to show you of the beautiful snowfall from our house here in NJ.  We got a total of 14 inches! ACK!
I hope you have a wonderful day and a great weekend.   Do you have any big plans for the 3 day weekend?  If I am up to it, I will start painting my living room on Saturday morning.  What about Valentine's Day?  Do you have anything special planned?  We may go out to dinner or something but other than that we really don't have much planned besides maybe doing some painting and then just relaxing - though, I must say that painting is very relaxing and therapeutic to me. ;o)

I hope all of you have a wonderful and great Friday and a Happy Valentine's Day weekend. 

Lots of love and hugs,
Trac- :o)
