My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. 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.
Alan Cohen

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

The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.

Snow Days

So ... I woke in the night ... I thought I heard something .
No, I didn't hear anything.
Nothing.
Nothing at all.
Complete silence.
It was snowing.

I woke early this morning.
About 5 am. I heard something.
Snow plows, flying down the road.
Trying to stay ahead of the storm.

I woke again  around 8:30.
It is silent out there .
Snow.
Soooo much snow.
I cannot see the bottom steps to my front door.
I cannot see the stone wall beside the drive.

The birds are up in trees or somewhere but they are not on the ground
or around the feeders.

It is a totally silent white world.
And here I am .. all alone in it.

The only thing I can think of doing is to turn the stereo on really loud with Tango music and later I will bake cookies.
Make soup.
Learn to sew.
Iron. Do I have an iron ?
Give myself a pedicure.
Read my Kindle.
Hope the electricity stays on.
Wish I were in Buenos Aires coping with the heat.
Wish someone was here with me, that particular someone who would make the day funny and an adventure.

Snow days ...  they aren't what they used to be.
