My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires, 8 years ago. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

I want a dog

I know it is a commercial but I don't care.


The Endless Winter


I can't remember when there was no snow on the ground. I don't remember which month it was when it started ... it seems like I should be trying to remember what year it was when there was no snow on the ground !
I fell asleep to the sound of sleet hitting the windows.
I woke to the sound of snow blowers and more snow, a lot of ice and fire sirens.

I am seriously considering living in a place that has no need for snow blowers ..

I will definitely see if I can do this too. The little birds count on me and come when they see me but not crows. What a lovely story this is.

When is Spring ?

I admit it, I got up and looked out the windows and saw that it was not snowing or doing anything else and I did a Happy Dance, right there with the kitten.
 Well , she watched, she isn't really into Happy Dancing yet.

She does do a little Kitten Hop when she gets a new toy .. or as in today- when I took an old toy that I put away, and threw it for her and she went all nutty because she had a ...New Toy , Oh boy Oh boy A New Toy !!!!

So I did a few things around the house and decided to go look at a few homes that were on Trulia.
I drove around and it was depressing, I couldn't find the right street or homes and one that looked really charming , although old, in the photos online, was one big sneeze from falling down.
I think it was built in the 1800's and has had little work done since.

So disheartened , I came home.

I told the kitten that we were going to have to just wait and see what happens and I got my Murder Mystery and got cozy on the sofa with the kitten and read my book.

Thinking that tomorrow, maybe I would go to a different town and browse around a shop or even go to Great Barrington ...
While I was having dinner I kept hearing this noise.
I kept getting up and walking around trying to figure out what it was ... then I realized, it was a tapping sound. tap tap tap .... ice ... on ... the ... windows.

We are now having an ice storm.

I have cat food, eggs, coffee, and pasta ... Minette and I can make it til Spring.

When is Spring again ?
