Feels Like Home

It is currently 36 degrees. I grew up in New York, on the Pennsylvania border mid way across the state. It is cold there – from October until late April to Mid June most years. One of the parameters in moving away from New York was warmer and sunnier. I find life in Nevada County meets that criteria most of the time and even on a day like today, I got 50% of the arrangement (sunshine).

Last week I was bragging to my family (those poor folk who live under cloudy cold skies) about daisies growing in the Christmas Tree Farm the family supported this year. It was 36 degrees there when I was sharing. Oh, the irony.

I have to keep in mind, this will be short lived and even if the snow predicted does fall, it only comes to visit. I will be bragging again in no time.
