I have several family members living in the Midwest area who'll be bundling up tight in the coming days…..
this is something completely unfamiliar to me living here in Southern California…..
I've never lived in an area where the weather could kill you if you went outside for a walk…..
I've always wondered…..
when you don't go to work because of bad weather…..
do you get paid ?
or do you use up sick time or vacation days?
how in the world do you know how much your utilities will cost?
and when everyone and their brother is staying off the road and sticking close to home….
why is Star Bucks still open and who are those poor people braving the roadways?
a tough bunch of people who choose to live there that's for sure….
I'm a pansy…..
needing sunshine and warmth or I start to whine like a three year old….
the photos are beautiful of all the chilled wintery whiteness….
the bowls of steaming soups, board games, sports on the television and crafting….
all of these activities never take place in my home…..
I've always felt as if I'm missing out not having snow….
I suppose I could pretend it's cold outside but the birds and sunshine call me elsewhere….
I'll post photos of my trees that are heavy with citrus and ready for harvesting….
my blogging buddies share their wonderful cozy homes while winter temps keep them close to the hearth and I'll share my flowers and sunshine to remind them Spring will arrive and they'll be shedding the wool coats down the road….
keep warm and safe and enjoy a football game and bowl of chili for me…..
and I'll be deadheading flowers and pulling weeds for all the gardeners out there waiting on Spring...
happy friday friends….
enjoy your weekend…..I'll be painting the coop and ordering curtains…...
