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.

Right In The Middle Of It




A BAND OF MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOW TO IMPACT PORTIONS OF THE MID
HUDSON VALLEY....LITCHFIELD COUNTY AND THE SOUTHERN BERKSHIRES...

AS OF 750 EST...RADARS INDICATED A BAND OF SNOW...CAPABLE OF PRODUCING
SNOWFALL RATES OF 1-2 INCHES PER HOUR...JUST NORTH OF A
POUGHKEEPSIE...TORRINGTON LINE...MOVING EAST NORTHEAST. IF THIS
BAND HOLD TOGETHER WILL REACH INTO MOST OF COLUMBIA COUNTY AS
WELL AS BERKSHIRE COUNTY SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 90 THROUGH 900 AM.

VISIBILITY IN THIS BAND WILL DROP TO A QUARTER MILE OR LESS ADDING
TO THE TREACHEROUS TRAVEL.


Yes, children, this is where I live ... this is where I am located .. right there in the middle of it all.
My mom always said I liked to be the Center of Attention ... well ... here we are again, right in the middle of it.

I am not panicked like I was last year when yet another snow storm hit .. but it did give me pause when I looked outside this am .. I knew something was up when I woke to total silence .. not even Minette was making noise!
The bottom steps have disappeared on my front porch.
The birds are hiding.
Not even deer tracks through the garden as there are every other morning ..

I feel as though I woke up in another world.
One where there is only Minette and I .. huddling with a cup of coffee and wondering how long it will take to be dug out .. will I see another human before Spring ?
Will there be a Spring ?
Will there   be a Summer ??

Yes, I woke up with more questions than answers .

I am listening to music from Argentina. It only makes me more homesick.
But I will keep listening ... better than the dead silence that comes with a foot of snow.

Take care, be safe, be warm ..

Oh Candice, do take care in that white world surrounding your nest - thank goodness you and Minette are prepared for snuggling until things look better outside. I guess even the deer don't get around much in all that snow - best to be a bird I'm sure!
Speaking of which, we are filling our feeders almost daily now and it's expensive! We've also hung a suet feeder hoping the woodpeckers would enjoy however it's mostly a hangout for chickadees and, surprisingly, a big old robin seems to love it. Of course the squirrels eat more than the birds - Minette would have a field day watching all this activity.
Stay safe - no shoveling - just patience and the knowledge Spring will come soon I'm sure.
Hugs - Mary

Thank you Dear ! There is no way I am stepping foot out the door so no worries about the shoveling. No one can shovel this ! We have feet of snow already, past the inches stage.
Minette is hiding in the curtains at the glass doors, while the birds sit in the shrubs and watch her .. I think I will make a nest of the sofa and read the day away :) hugs to you too
