Oh, boy. What a state of mind! Here I am just sitting at my desk this morning trying to catch up on a few things. I’ve just been moping around feeling sorry for myself because it’s cold out and I miss my Florida home, family and friends. Moving away from all of this and out of my comfort zone (not speaking of the weather on this one…well, maybe a bit) was not an easy thing for me.
I’ve been wanting to post more about our new surroundings but haven’t braved the cold new world. So I’ve been pretty much staying inside going through and catching up on my emails, some Facebook and trying to figure out when I’m ever going to get consistent again on my posts. Waaahhhh! Big baby. When lo and behold! What to my wondering eyes should appear out my window? It’s too late for reindeer! But wait, there’s a whole herd of gorgeous deer (that I have yet to get any pictures of).
Not taken on our property but in Blairsville (give me time)
They’re so beautiful! And I watched about seven or eight of them just dilly-dallying on the hillside down from my window. Of course, I tried to sneak out to snap some group pics but, no matter how quiet I was, I think my black jacket gave me away! So off they went on their merry way. Well, all in due time. Now, can someone here in North Georgia please tell me when hunting season is over? We’ve heard shots (albeit in the distance but still sounds too close for comfort) since we arrived in the middle of December. I’m nervous for my new friends because I’ve been hearing shots all afternoon. If I could just explain to the deer that if they hung around our house, they’d be safe. We’re not hunters; we’re feeders.
At the closing on our house, the previous owners told us about how in the spring it becomes so beautiful around here with all kinds of flowers and plants, etc. I can’t wait (but I guess I have to).
But looky, looky!!
I’m thinking daffodils? I don’t know my flowers at all but I suppose it’s time I started learning! Are they usually early bloomers? I know the weather has been absolutely crazy.
And what wonderful new friends we’re making here. I’m just loving the people we have met here. All of our new friends at church — I just love them to pieces already! And this week, we’re going out to lunch with two of our neighbors. We’ve been emailing but because the weather has been so off-putting, we haven’t met face-to-face yet. Well, we’re going to change that! I’m excited! The good Lord has sent us here for a reason. One of these days, I’ll find it out! I still don’t like the cold one bit but this too shall pass! Right?!
