Wow, the weather is turning worse. We have had a very nasty storm. Lots of ice and snow but mainly ice. Yuck! this is getting very old. Hopefully just one more month of this and then we can start to enjoy warmer, sunnier weather. This kind of weather can really put a person down. It makes it so hard to get around and I feel so bad for the elderly cause they don't want to go out in fear that they will fall.

St. Patricks Day

It is now St. Patrick's day and everyone is in there green clothes. I had to work today so I had to wear my uniform and it isn't green. My coworker decided since I am Irish and didn't have green on that I definitely had to be pinched. Good thing she doesn't pinch hard.
It's always cool when Chicago colors their river. I saw some video once of it and it was really neat to see. They have a big St. Patty's Day Parade, too.

Florida is one of my favorite places to go to for vacation. I love the beaches, warm weather, and so much to do there. We have gone there 4 times and hopefully we will go again. One thing I do not like is the high humidity. Thank goodness we have not been there during a hurricane.

My sister has a dog named Zoe. She is a bichon. She is just adorable. She is so white and curly and has little short legs. She has the cutest way of begging. You can hardly resist her. When she's out in the snow she almost blends in. She reminds me of a big snowball out there. I can't get over how little she looks to me compared to my son's dog. I've really enjoyed being around her.

Seth took off for Italy recently and is traveling with other students from his college. They will be gone for 9 days. I think he said the flight is about 8 hours long. They left Chicago at 10:30 at night. They are going to Venice, Florence, and Rome. They will see the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican. I know they are set up for other tours also. This will be a trip of a lifetime. This is the first time he has flown without his family. I know he is very excited about it and I hope the time goes very slow and he enjoys it.

Winter Weather

Well, here it is the first part of March and it's coming in like a lion. The worst blizzard we've had in years. It's kind of cool in a way. Everyone is pretty much stranded and it's fun to stay in and bake and cook while it's so cold and snowy outside. The snow is piling very high and it makes for a lot of snow shoveling and plowing. I am very thankful that we have a warm home to be in and out of the weather.
