SNOW, SNOW, GO AWAY!


And don't come back another day! My physical disability doesn't let me ski, nor do I snowmobile, and a person really does have to be healthy and an avid outdoorsman to like the terribly long and white winters of New Brunswick, Canada. We are in over our heads, and more is already falling now, continuing until the weekend all weather reports are saying... another 15 cm. today added to over a meter we already have! Spring can't come soon enough for ME! If you are wondering why this entry is a bit short today, the power company informed us they have work in our area to do today, so I have to shut-down. With a good book in hand, I think the best place to be right now is under my wonderful quilt to keep warm (did you see my Flickr badge?). Hope you are keeping well and happy, dear friend!

Will Wonders Never Cease

My photo
Grammy likes piano music, fireplaces, children's laughter (no better sound in the world!), warm weather, bubble baths and blowing bubbles, tea parties, eating out, shopping sprees, dressing up, being creative, collecting vintage ~ children's book (for their illustrations), aprons and pillowcases, old black and white movies, photo albums, Christmas, Old Maid card games, Mother's Day, travelling by plane and train, remembers fondly ~ births of my children and February 3, 2008! huérfanos desde Chiapas, Camp Oneida, Tom Oshiro, Piper Laurie, Maggie and Jorge, Aunt Trudy and Uncle John, Granny Tweddle, Jean, Grammy and Grampy Hendry, all my wonderful online friends, fifth grade, CKC '71, May Festivals and Frank Holton's Public School Girls' Choir, summers in Michigan and Lion's Head, homeschooling, first flight. I dislike being alone (maybe because I shared my mother's womb with an identical twin?), my feet being tickled, mushrooms, whining, family conflict, long distance telephone bills, bugs (especially centipedes, earwigs, all pinchers and stingers), motorcycles, sirens, not having money, saying good-byes just like AVA (it's "see you later" right?), sarcasm, spit.
