*****I can't offer any special prizes***** Just encouragement / Feb Contest with a twist

Please, guys, submit some more photos.
I should be closing the submissions, but we are really as low as ever. So I'll push it for one day, til tomorrow evening, Saturday.
If you want to submit a second photo, go for it. I'm the hostess, I can decide that for my contest, and maybe it will be fun.

THANKS for EVERYTHING you do, Mira.

6. Just for you, Mira.

I haven't been coming here often these days, but I do notice that the submissions have really fallen off lately. I don't know why unless I am not the only one who hasn't been here much. This is about the only group that I miss.

7. OK, I'll put in a 2nd one.

I am sick at home with the horrible awful cold that is going around. Sent my husband off to New Haven by himself this morning
where he will get to have a fun weekend with our youngest son (playing percussion in a play up at Yale Cabaret this weekend). Meanwhile,
I sit here, going through boxes of kleenex, watching old movies, reading, and eating from a big pot of chicken soup I made today.

So...with a little cabin fever of my own, I'll put in a 2nd one.

8. Soooo very sorry

I just got over it myself, it put me out and made me useless for over a week. Please hurry up and get better, you are great to be the first to enter a second one, I will now go look at it.

9. My husband had it last weekend and I banished him

to the other end of the house in hopes I wouldn't get it and have it ruin this weekend. No such luck. Came down with it Monday night,HORRIBLE Tuesday and then much better Wednesday. Crashed again yesterday with a nose faucet that wouldn't quit (that's why the waste basket is so full! ) Gave up
last night--after taking Snowy to the pet resort-- and canceled my tickets to go. Hope they have a good time. Definitely made the right decision, though, to stay home.

What did you do with Lola? I decided to leave Snowy at the pet resort and give her a vacation from a sick mommy who would definitely not want to take her for walks this weekend.

14. I have a wastebasket like that.

My Kleenex use has deforested several counties. I've had this cold for seven weeks; hope yours doesn't last so long.

We need a "cold" smilie.

11. Saw it. Love it.

I hope the lovely bed setup helped to make you feel better. By the way, I too dragged a 13 gal trash bag full of Kleenex gathered in the house to the big trash can.

12. I thought about entering a Snowy in the snow photo--too boring--

but gave myself something to do instead by "arranging" a shot.

Time to crawl back in the bed with some more chicken soup.
