...snow on the bbq, bourbon in the glass... DO I feel like shoveling ?
I think I'll take a pass...

I love the way it blows and drifts, and covers up the brown...
I watch it late at night, because it softly hits the ground...

Sure, I HAVE to shovel it, it doesn't get much lighter...
Oh, for my sake, I'll take a break... My chest is getting tighter...

...kidding... i LOVE the snow !!!

...to ME, it just wouldn't be a Christmas without the blanket of snow...

I can do without the commercialism, or the ads that seem to start earlier and earlier every year, or the crowds, or....

...wait...

I'm NOT in Markham anymore, the crowded roads to induce road rage...

I don't DO malls... I shop LOCAL, and we have TONS of places to support up here...

Local artisans, farms, The Southampton Olive Oil Company ( of which, I have 16 bottles in my cupboard, but truth be told... I DO USE THEM, EVERYDAY !) ;-)

Gas is cheaper up here... so is my insurance...

We have neighbours who clear other people's driveways... we look after each other up here...
It's how we thrive, survive, and get to build REAL, solid, long-term relationships...

It's where we become who we've always wanted to be, all that we thought we COULD be...

It's where i live... Southampton, my "Forever Home"...


Peace !
