Meanwhile to the South

jessieshouseYesterday, Jessie and Kim told you how hard they are working and how disciplined they are being up there in New England.

Today, Liz and I thought we’d offer another perspective.

15 Thoughts

  1. Looks like you are having a fabulous time. Jealous. So jealous.

    Not of your frigid weather, however. It’s been in the mid 80’s here all week and should continue well into next week. How you can stand having weather in the 60’s or 70’s is beyond me.

      1. I don’t know. It’s a running joke (years long) about how I can’t stand cold weather. It started on a trip to Vermont where someone from New York was talking about the lovely summer weather they were having for the trip while I was bundled up in my coat because it was low 60’s and raining. You know, Southern CA winter weather.

  2. To my loves in Key Westβ€”I think of little else but returning home to New England. But after seeing your photos today I could be very happy there with you.

    My Harrington aunts criticized me without mercy for years, after I moved away from home in Massachusetts. When I went back to finish up school and find work, I expected to be seeing a lot of them. Instead I learned that they spent the cold months down south and the hot months up north. I never saw them.

    Roberta, I love following your adventures in Florida.

    Terrific blog today!

      1. Barb, I left Massachusetts for California after high school. Whenever I said anything went wrong or was unpleasant, my aunts would sayβ€”you’re the one who left. They kept asking me when I was coming home. But when I returned home to go to graduate school, none of them were ever around. They were either in Florida (because Boston was too cold) or they were in Maine or Nova Scotia (because Boston was too hot). πŸ˜‰
