Anticipation


So, how was your weekend, lovelies?

Mine was cold.
Hella cold, as in 20 degrees on Saturday morning.
Yep sports fans, it really, truly gets cold in Texas.

Let's see, what else?
I worked, worked and then worked some more, but hey...
the old man was in Houston visiting family, and with the overtime I raked in, 
I'm that much closer to affording my pricey new camera lens.

And that much closer to something....

exciting !


I can't tell you just what it is....yet.

But soon !

 Have a wonderful week!

Overtime=Lens=Wow

Sue said...

Everyone should be "rewarded" for hard work! Or at least that's what I keep telling myself as well! Buy the lens, buy the lens, got it?

Take care, Sue

OH.. the anticipation is going to do me in!;)

Let's see... how was my weekend? Wonderful compared to the week we started with. My hubby and I made two trips to the ER, I was sick, and my sister's house was robbed. Yes.. I think my weekend was wonderful! Thank you for allowing me to vent a bit!:)))

Happy Monday, Sweet Friend! I hope you get a bit of rest after your long work week.. and I also hope you get that new lens soon!;))

Hugs,
Melanie

Sorry you had to work so much over Thanksgiving, but hopefully, as you said, you are that much closer to your new camera equipment. Yea!! And I can't wait to hear your news. That is so exciting. It has been chilly here too. But it makes it feel more like Christmas. Last year we got snow before Christmas. Can't wait to see if we will get any snow this year for Christmas. Have a wonderful week. Love & blessings from NC!

Ugh, 20 degrees. It got pretty cold here too, and the wind chill factors made it feel worse. Not ready for this AT ALL.

Yay, I'm glad you're working towards a goal. That makes it seem a little more enjoyable--right?

And you are such a tease--you know we can't wait for you to spill the beans on your little secret. I know it will be something sweet.

Take care and have a wonderful week!

Meri Wiley said...

Good Morning Anne,

Always teasing us with things to come.....ho hum, I guess I'll have to wait like everyone else! You're so clever at keeping us hanging on.

Hey, we're just as cold here in Arizona as you are, what you need is hot flashes and chronic inflammation like me.......ha ha, hee hee, and constantly run a fever......you're always warm!!!!!

Hugs,
Meri

Theresa said...

The 20's IS cold
for you folks down
in Lone Star territory!
Now for us up North,
depending on the time
of year, it could be
a veritable heat wave : )
Glad you had a great
weekend....I took a
little blog hiatus to
tend to hearth and home
but am back in the
saddle.....and looking
forward to your big
REVEAL!!

Where there is a will there is way! Awesome ~ and I can't wait for the surprise :)

Jem said...

We had a very chilly weekend here across the pond in the Peak District! I woke up early hours of Saturday morning and our thermometer read -9 degrees celsius! Though the rest of the weekend was generally between 0 and -5 :-)

You must be so excited to be inching your way toward your new lens! I know how excited my other half gets when he's sizing up new pieces of kit!

Jem xXx

Farmgirl Paints said...

I'm stumped. Poor thing...20's is really cold for you down there. That's brutal when you're not used to it.

Lululiz said...

Oh you terrible tease!!!! When will you tell? You KNOW I am terrible at waiting, lol. You can whisper it to me, you know, by writing real small, nobody else will notice......

Now wrap up warm and keep well!

Hi Anne,

I wish I could package some of our sun for you dear friend. Sorry it is really cold there, but I think it is everywhere, England and Paris have snow too.
Good luck with the new lens and I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful photos.

Stay warm

Hi Anne,

Just saw your post over at Dawn's site, so I thought I'd pop over here and say hello. Haven't checked in with you since around this time last year. Hope you're going to have a happier holiday season this time around. (I forgot what was going on...but you were kinda down last year). :-) Your blog is as lovely as ever!!

red.neck chic said...

Okay. It's like this. I'm anti-computer starting tomorrow - so when you break the news will you call me? Pretty Please? With sugar and a purse on top?

I can't wait to hear!!!
