Winter Hideaway

Hey gang! The big storm is coming and I am super prepared for a wintry 48 hours of snowed-in warmth and retreat. I have no work until Monday, so until then I am stocked up with food, wine, tea, candles, and firewood. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, those of us born under the astrological sign of Cancer are pros at this sort of thing – staying home and creating a comfortable, secure, cozy environment. So I say to storm Nemo, bring it baby! We’re ready for you in Queens, NY.

Be safe everyone. Have fun, throw another log on the fire, make hot chocolate, take photos of snowy landscapes, create art, read books, listen to Beethoven, play with the pets, curl up in a blankie, watch an old movie, snuggle with someone you love . . . . and dream about spring 🙂  I’ll see you all very soon.

    Red Sox pitchers and catchers officially report on next Tuesday — not sure about the Mets. Also not sure whether we’ll be liberated from the 24+ inches of snow we’re supposed to receive from this storm 🙂 But help is on the way!

      I’ve been thinking of you up there. You guys got hit hard?

        Thank you for thinking of us — just got the power (and heat) back late last night. There’s no public transportation yet. I had been watching a PBS show on The Tempest when the narrator said the words “utter darkness” — at that moment, the lights went off. How very typical 🙂 (It wasn’t so funny at the time).

        Sounds like you’re all set. Hope your mother is doing OK.

    Have just seen a very snowy NYC on the news – hope you’ve been tucked up safely against the elements!
    Take care

      Thanks Jennifer! We’re ok for the most part. Here in the city we got over a foot of snow but surrounding areas saw much more.

      Hope things are well with you!
