Oh Brother!

My BIG big brother called the other night. I have 2 ya know, and this was the oldest. Haven't seen Kari in, well...FOREVER!!! He lives in Texas now with his wife and amazing family while the oldest boy goes to university here in Nova Scotia. I don't know why I always go back in my mind to times when the oldest 2 were babies - I lived with them for around 6 months and I don't know how they put up with my immaturity. I had sooo much fun with the kids on playdates, making mud pies, dancing around the living room with someone on my shoulders, and eating chives out of the garden like they were going out of style, and the effects of others doing the same:0). That's living, baby!

I took a picture for them of the snow on my way to work yesterday because I'm sure they miss it (and for Steph who is surprised snow really happens at Christmas - 70 degrees! - she tries to make me jealous? Let the games begin!) . In truth, the roads were nasty, but I made sure Tim Hortons was in the background. That always warms the soul, LOL. Anyway, having trouble finding the software to install on my new computer so I can actually upload the pictures (grrr). Also finally took an update of moi. So, the pics will follow 'cause I really want to share the joy of snow and cold with ya'll - REALLY. And for those who are experiencing similar winter weather, you can see how great I look now compared to the last photo in July. I'm sure you're all on the edge of your seats, haha, but you'll have to be patient.

Evidently the karma gods were after me because yesterday was about 40 degrees with constant rain.......we had a bit of ice on the roads this morning - oh yeah, and fog too! I reealllllly hate the cold.......hence why I live in Texas for goodness sake - I have new respect for you and how you stay motivated to do ANYTHING when there is snow/ice on the ground. Screw that - I just want to curl up on the couch in cold weather!

Suffice to say, I'm perfectly content gazing at YOUR snow and enjoying MY heatwave!! HUGS!

Hey Can,

Great chatting the other night...hope your B-Day was excellent.
Nice to see the family pic and with a bit of luck we'll see ya'lls (learning some Texan) faces in person next summer.
Did I ever tell you that a dog liked to releive himself on the chives.
Snow is like extra weight, it's better when it's GONE!

I can't wait to see the new pics, but you can keep the snow. I promise I won't think you're being selfish.

I think if it snowed I'd have to start wearing socks....

Happy Friday!!
