Snow... Snow... Everywhere Snow

My Cyber-Sis, Julia (~aka~ Queeni), over at Interruptions and Willzmom at Lots of Little Things have tagged me for a new meme. It’s a 'Six Word Memoir', inspired by the story that Hemingway, who once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. He came up with: For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.

For more examples, check out Not Quite What I was Expecting: Six Word Memoirs by Famous and Obscure, written by Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser.

Here are the meme rules:
1. Write your own six word memoir
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like
3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere
4. Tag five more blogs with links
5. Remember to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

I came up with two........... My first choice was: Life's A Journey, Hang On Tight. Although this is true of most of my life, present day life for me is quite a bit different so I did a wee bit of a variation on my original.

Life's A Journey, Enjoy The Ride!

With that said, I tag the following people to take part in this meme:

Diane at Diane's Place

Tammy at The Pink Magnolia

Lynne at Lynne's Little Corner Of The World

Mary at Mary's Writing Nook

BJ at Sweet Nothings


Since my last posting we have had snow twice. We received about 2 1/2 to 3 inches of the white fluff on Wednesday. I ventured outside with the camera and took a few shots to share with you.

As you can see Frog Dog was completely covered. I brushed away a little hole so his smiling face would show.

There is usually very little traffic on our road, but for some reason when it snows there is even less. How ever the Postman's creed still holds true.

I can't wait until it warms up enough to once more sit on the pergola and drink my morning coffee and just enjoy the fresh air and sounds of nature.

Our welcome rooster is a bit taller than Frog Dog so he didn't require brushing off.
Do you remember me mentioning that we were going to be getting high speed internet hook up via satellite? Well, yesterday was the day that the tech was scheduled to come. After the last experience with the Direct TV tech not being able to make it up the mountain due to snow, I scheduled this one in the afternoon, thinking that if we got snow, by afternoon the snow plow would have the roads cleared enough for traffic. It was a good thought, but it didn't work. About 2:30 the tech (George) called and said he was outside of Louisville, KY and would be here in about 3 hours. Right after I hung up the phone, the snow started to fall. It Fell.. and ~ It Fell.. and ~ It Fell.
Two hours later, he called back to let us know that he was hung up in traffic between Cincinatti and us because of an accident. By this time the snow had not let up. Adding what had fallen to what was still on the ground from Wednesday amounted to about 7 1/2 to 8 inches of snow. There was just no way poor George was going to make it up this mountain without 4 wheel drive. As a result, we had to reschedule. Hopefully come Saturday afternoon we will be buckling up the seat belt on our computer chair (mental note: install seat belt to computer chair) and whipping around cyber space at neck break speed.
Have a Great Friday and Wonderful Weekend...........

Enjoyed your six words. Both are accurate in so many ways.

I'm sorry your high speed internet is a long time in coming. You will get it and you'll enjoy it.

Thanks for visiting and commenting on Michelle's surgery. She is getting more rest at home and the boys are loving that she's there.

Love both your 6 word memes!! It's so amazing to me how much you can learn about a person from just 6 little words--thanks so much for playing!!! (and i love the "cyber sis Queeni" bit--)

i'm not sure i want to even CYBER visit you with all that snow!bbbbrrrrrr... i'm so spoiled by this California Bay Area weather. Today my little desktop gadget says we are having "Severe Weather." Um, it's raining. And maybe a little windy.

We still have so much snow and ice here...I'm getting cabin fever...but I won't drive very far with this kind of weather...aaarrrgggghhhh! lol Like you, I will be so glad when Spring arrives and I can sit out on my deck again to have my coffee and enjoy the fresh air. Our temps have been so frigid and even when it's sunny, it's not enjoyable to be outside! Oh dear, hopefully you will finally get your high speed internet by this weekend...tell Mother Nature to stop the snowfall for that day! lol xox

Best of luck with finally getting that Net hook up! You will love it!


Tammy said...

Poor frog dog and rooster...if they are like me they are sick of that white stuff! LOL!

Oh me...I will really have to think for this meme...hmmmm!

Diane J. said...

I'm with Tammy: I'll have really muse over this meme! But I'll see what I can do....

We got freezing rain last night but it melted off by morning. No snow, alas! I really wanted some for snow cream.

Hope you get your high speed hooked up Saturday. Don't whiz by so fast that I don't recognize you, LOL! ;o)

Love and hugs,

Soon! Spring will get here soon. I remember winters in Marietta. Its seems like snow was always on the ground. And then when it melted, the river flooded. But it was so GREEN in the spring!!

Jo, I have my six word meme posted.
