Okay. I have a dilemma.

Between some back pain work and a root canal.. demerol fog.. I remembered that I never replied to an email, about this site, from my cousin Ruby.  Now I can’t find it and I’m left with the idea that I dreamed it instead of received it.

So, Ruby.. if you are out there, please email again.  I’ll keep trying to find your email.  (I think I read it on my phone is why its lost.)

Its so exciting to be in communication, with family, because of Facebook or Blog Posts.

I noticed a different last name, that, of course, I didn’t write down.. So I can’t look for you on Facebook.. but I’ll try.  Facebook Me, Ruby.

Lots of Love, Cousin Heidi

PS: I often drop names in blogs, in case anyone Googles Themselves.. and last week, my cousin, Selena, found her name dropped. Isn’t that fun?  Drop a name into your posts and see what happens.  I love the internetz.

Week Two: Winter Memories

1. I was born and raised in San Diego, California.

2. I never owned mittens until I was an adult.

3. I’ve never shoveled snow.

4. I’ve never salted a walk.

5. I’ve never dripped my faucets.

6. I’ve never owned a pair of snow boots or a rain coat.

7. I’ve never made a snow angel.

8. I’ve never been on a snow mobile.

9. I have seen it snow.

10. I have scraped a windshield and dealt with frozen window fluid, while traveling.

My winter memories are much different than most because I grew up in the land of milk and honey.  The perfect weather that I didn’t appreciate until well after I had moved away.

Weather patterns, in Southern California are usually wet and dry.

Winter is wet.

The most drastic “wet” that I remember would have been around 1977 or 1978.  It rained so much, the San Diego river swelled up into the shopping centers.  The traffic was readjusted and bus schedules changed because there was only one way over the valley.. interstate 805.

Nothing else much changed, in winter, where I lived.  I didn’t ever use an umbrella or I got more soaked than not using one. We still walked and took the bus wherever we needed to go.  Life didn’t change much.

One time, my cousins Dolly and Ruby were over and my mom allowed us all to go out and walk in the rain.  What a grand day that was.  We were soaked but happy little kids.

We had no snow days where I went to school.
