Hello Sunshine ...
... goodbye freezing fog, freezing temps, snow, ice dams, slippery driveways, frosty the snowman ... etc. ... hello Paradise.
Paradise is the little town that my parents live in. It's in sunny Northern California. This post is not a 'dis' on winter, but a hello to five days of beautiful sunshine.
Super Bowl Sunday is my dad's 80th birthday ... so I'm flying down next Wednesday to surprise him. I haven't been home for three years. It will be weird stepping off the plane in snow-free sunshine.
No hubby and no children. Yes, I booked a round trip ticket (I know what you were thinking ... one way ;)
I, of course, still love winter ... but it will be nice to feel warm without a coat, gloves, scarf, hat and boots. No need to wear shoe chains/grippers, snow shoes, use a snow shovel, snow blower, or 4x4 plow.
Better get a pedicure so my tootsies look nice in sandals.
I think the heat is already getting to me :)
