Ah, But the Snow is Beautiful!!!

Snow and adolescence are the only problems that disappear if you ignore them long enough.
Earl Wilson
I am trying to do that!! However, after the past three days it is getting even harder to do!! It has only stopped snowing for a few hours this morning and then it was back to heavy snow!! Looks as though it may continue through the weekend.  Glad I stocked up on food before it started!!!  Hope you all have a great, snow-free weekend!! Enjoy!

I Prefer Roses to Snow!!

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive – Howard Thurman.

Wishing All of You a Great Week!! Enjoy!

There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story.
Linda Hogan

As many of you know, I'm taking a blogging break for a while, but I will still be eager to look at pictures of your world and commenting!!

My Apologies!!

My apologies for yesterday!!! I had been sent a very funny pic by my friend in Seattle and I had hoped to share it with you! But, as usual for Blogger these days, it couldn't be seen. Blogger didn't bother letting me know that however!!

Anyway, I wish you all a very wonderful and beautiful Sunday! Enjoy! Have a great new week!!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
