That four letter word

What's new in my neck of the woods?
Snow. Snow. Snow. And more snow.
Did I mention snow?
If you've never experienced the cold stuff, now might be a good time to venture north. It just keeps coming.
Perfect conditions for downhill skiing, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, making a snowman. The list is endless.
I'm loving the ideas of things to do inside. Things like write, and read, watch movies...there is something wonderful about the warmth of a fireplace on a cold winter night. Sounds inviting, doesn't it?

Spring will come eventually. Not likely anytime soon.  More snow is on the way this weekend. Oh goody!

First sight

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Sometimes it takes two or three!

I remember walking along in this village a bit teary-eyed.  My dreams of English villages had fairy tale visions, but wow, when I actually stood in front of the home where Jane Austen lived, well, it's pretty indescribable.

No words.

Unexpected News

A friend has just been diagnosed with cancer.
Stupid cancer.
I'm just sad, so under my electric blanket I will go.

Still 50 in my mind

Don't mind me. I'm still in birthday jubilee mode.

I've been writing today and was just thinking how lovely it would be to write for a whole month in England. That's my dream. Spend a month in England, writing. There. It's out there.
Think of a crazy, way out there thing you would like to do. That's mine.

I think it would be lovely. Write for awhile. Go have tea at a pub. Write some more. Go walk around a village. Write. In an English village. For a month. It could happen.
