I simply have to say that with the changes Jennifer has made here I am in blog heaven. That's right I said blog heaven. I was able to do so many things on AOL and when I came here I was a bit intimidated by all the html codes. Sooner or later, if I keep at it, I'm sure I'll figure some of it out....in the meantime it's great to have a friend who's such a quick study.

It finally feels like winter here. There is someone who lives in my house who hates snow. He calls it the "S" word. I love snow. It's the ice I'm not so crazy about. On Saturday and Sunday when we might have slept in several neighbors were out there making a lot of noise with snow shovels. I couldn't grasp why these type A people could not sleep in and enjoy the weather. This morning at 8 a.m. when I moved my car for Rob to get his out of our driveway I noticed some ice on the sidewalk. I began hitting it with the snow shovel and breaking it up. When I arrived at work someone mentioned that all federal government, state and county employees had off work today to honor Dr. Martin Luther King. I realized that many of my neighbors must have been sleeping, enjoying not having to get up and get out of bed today. Gee, I wonder if I woke any of them up. I would never deliberately do anything like that. Still, I wonder if maybe they will stop and think about their early morning clean ups. Especially our one neighbor who we really like. The guy is up however at 5:30 EVERY morning. At times he has actually begun to mow his grass around 6. Last summer, another neighbor, Terry, who is usually very calm came flying over to his yard screaming "TURN THAT OFF!" Since then he hasn't fired it up much before 8 a.m. Bless his heart. Sometimes as much as I enjoy my home here and the neighborhood kids, I have to wonder if ole Nelle might fit in better in a senior citizen complex. NAH!

I am not too crazy about the snow I have lived in Illinios and Virginia.. I remember getting up at 5 am.. going out starting my car up and going back in and taking a shower and by the time I left for work my car was thawed out.. Florida suits me better!!
