The #NYTimes Top 15 (20) #Bestsellers in #Fiction for the week ending Feb 8th, 2015 plus #BLOGGING UPDATES!

Welcome! It's been another week of GREAT books! I can't wait to see what books made the list this week! This post is always up every Sunday by NOON every weekend and most of the time earlier!
Thanks for coming by! I LOVE sharing this list with you! If anyone is interested in linking to this Post, you are MORE than welcome to do so! It takes me about 2-1/2 hours to type it up, especially depending on what I write 'here' in this location, first. You could do a Blog Update like I do, or however you want to word what is going on at your blog each Sunday and link it here at my blog in the comments for now until I look into the Linky link-up that is out there, the pricing in particular, and that way your Follower's can see the NYTimes bestsellers, too, and you don't have to do the work!
Also - if you link up HERE, then anyone who reads this post can see everyone's links, too!
I LOVE sharing this list with everyone!

I have the Winter Blues! This week has been a struggle for me - temperature wise! It's been SO COLD here! At night it's been below zero and then some, which doesn't add in the wind chill/dew point which has been an additional 10 to 15 degrees below zero! It's been a battle to stay warm! All I want to do is sit here wrapped up in my 3-layer thick fleece blanket! I learned to take my showers in the afternoon while the sun is out, thus making the house warmer! LOL! Anything to help stay warmer!!!
Earlier this last Fall, I weatherized this house as much as I could. The problem is the front door. This summer I'll have to get my husband to take it off the hinges, lay it flat, and check the bottom out. There is some type of weather stripping missing that has worn out and is now missing from the bottom of that door. This is where the ICE COLD AIR is coming IN THE HOUSE AT! When I say ICE COLD, I mean it! For now, I have towels shoved up against the bottom of the door, which is a pain when you have a dog who constantly wants to go in and out! She owns a fur coat, so . . . she doesn't care!
When my husband leaves for work in the morning, I'm not always awake to put the towels back in front of the door, either, so it just lets that cold air pour in! A door sweep won't work either. There is that other part missing that attaches to the underside of the door, (I don't know the name of it offhand) and I'm pretty sure that is what is letting in ALL that cold air, which is really an easy fix - in the summer! Not now!
Then THE SNOW!!!!!!!
I'm SO tired of it!
In the meantime, I just can't WAIT for the temperatures to warm up! Thankfully, one week of February is over! Three more to go! Yes! I'm counting!!! March usually starts to warm up a little more, so I have my eye on the prize of March!
What about YOU? Have YOU been freezing, too? Any tips on keeping the cold air OUT of the house? I'd LOVE to know!

UPDATE! GREAT NEWS FOR TODAY, Sunday!!! "TODAY" is going to be a HEAT WAVE!!! Woo-hoo! High: 37 Low: 16 YES!!!!
Mon and Tues at a high of 23 both days with a low of 12 for both!
Wed high is 29, then a low of 13 THEN . . .
Back to freezing my bejeevers!!!!!!!! (Whatever those are! LOL!!! My Grandmother used to say that! LOL!!!) Get this . . . With a . . .
HIGH OF 16 AND A LOW OF -6 (with barely ANY sun, and I forgot to check the wind. Nevermind! I don't want to know!) AND SO ON UNTIL THE FOLLOWING WEEK . . . Brrrrrrr, so it is  . . . CELEBRATION TIME FROM TODAY, SUNDAY, TO THIS WEDNESDAY!!!!!!!! HOORAY!!! (And that is STILL BLANKETY BLANK COLD!!!!!!!!!!!!)
