What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods? Leaves brown? Sky gray? Ice? Snow?

Are you dreaming of some place where it’s safe and warm? Let’s hear about it!

Or maybe you like it when it’s brown and gray. Is this what you’ve been dreaming about all year?

Write your spin on California Dreamin’. Post it. Link it hear any time this week.

Come back on Friday for my spin on California Dreamin’.

Second Blooming 

I’m a Yankee currently living the in the Heart of Texas.  It’s hard for me to get into the Christmas spirit because of the extreme difference in weather.  Where I used to live it wouldn’t be unusual for us to already have snow on the ground at this time of the year.  Here it is 70 degrees and sunny.  It’s beautiful and I absolutely love it.  I hate the snow.  I absolutely loathe being cold all the time.  I don’t like driving in the mess or anything about the snow.  But, I must admit, that it is throwing me off that there will be no snow for Christmas where I live.

Of course, if I had a choice, I’d probably be on a cruise somewhere fabulous drinking margaritas by the pool for Christmas.  But, alas, such is not my life.


I am a 43-year-old, single mom of 19-year-old boy/girl twins living in an extremely small town in rural Texas. Currently, I am employed as a Site Supervisor for a prominent corporation that provides security officers for homes and businesses.

  1. I hear you. I have always fantasized about a family Christmas vacation to the Caribbean or something, but it never happens, and probably never will. Where are you in Texas? I grew up in Austin, and now live in Los Angeles, so I’ve never lived anywhere with a white Christmas. And I guess because of that, that song has no emotional ties for me at all!

    Thanks for linking with The Spin Cycle!

  2. A sunny Christmas does hold some appeal, especially this year when we are hitting way below zero already, with bunches of snow.

  3. The good thing about living in a place that experiences actual seasons is that it’s possible to get a White Christmas. Other than the holidays, I could totally skip the snow and cold weather.

    Now a cruise . . . well, that I could do anytime!
