Good morning world. I am sitting here awaiting the first day of fall...it comes very late to those of us that live in warmer climes. I may have to wait another two weeks before I get that sweet, crisp, fresh scent of cold blowing in from the north.
Actually, though, I did cheat a bit...boarded a plane and headed north by northwest, flying high over our great land...viewing our magnificient landscape with heightened awe. Especially flying over the Cascades mountain range and seeing the snow capped mountains somehow made me feel so very insignificant...just the majesty of it all.
Ah...arriving in Portland, Oregon...temperatures were in the low 70's, coming from Tampa and 93 degrees...believe me it felt good.
Oh, I could be a snowbird so easily. Of course, I'd have to get rid of hubby, he can't abide cold weather any more. In fact, when the temps here go below 65 degrees he starts moaning over wanting to move further south for more heat. Hells bells not me! I just want to turn off the air conditioners, throw open the doors and windows - to know the feeling of breathing fresh air without the noise background.
I'm still planning on visiting New York for Christmas, maybe I'll get lucky and this time there will be snow. I want to throw a snow ball, build a snowman with the grandbabies...and if it snowed high enough, throw myself down and make snow angels in the snow...lol. At my size and weight that would be quite a picture. I can see it now...Grandma Sandi falls and she CAN'T get up!! They'll leave me there for spring thaw...lol.
Now I have to see if I can add any pictures to this blog...bear with me while I experiment...
