cabin fever? Memories....

I'm a person who was raised in Cleveland, Ohio. Ohio is a pleasant place to reside, for you

 

have 4 seasons. Spring, snow has melted, slushy streets are dry, wash your windows, put the

 

storm windows up and pull down the screens, finally get to wash your car and it stays clean

 

for longer than a day. Summer, swimming in outdoor pool. Plant the vegetable garden and

 

erect the 6 foot fence to keep out the rabbits, deer, and any other critter that thinks the garden

 

was planted for them. HA! It's so nice to be outside in fresh air, no heavy coats to wear, no more

 

having to shovel the snow off the 50ft driveway so my dad can get in and out of the driveway. Also,

 

so the Heating Oil truck can make a delivery. Standing out in the cold at the end of the driveway

 

waiting for the school bus. The birds are arriving, robins pecking at the ground finding a worm, making

 

nests in the trees. Memories....... We did not have A/C, got hot you went down in the

 

basement. They didn't build houses with A/C. Fall, is one of those seasons that is beautiful, very

 

colorful, different shades of reds, yellows, oranges, browns, greens. But, the trees lost their beauty

 

the closer we came to winter. Winter season is how you look at it and make of it. When you’re a kid

 

LOVE winter. Sledding on the back yard incline. Ice skating at the neighbors back yard pond. First

 

you had to shovel the snow off. memories....You go play with your friends, bundled up, and stay

 

outside for hours, nose is rosy, mittens are wet figures cant' feel them any longer. Now time to

 

come in, take all the wet cloths off. Put clean dry.... clothes on. Sit in front of the fire and good old

 

mom makes hot coco with marshmallows for us all. memories....

 

That was the first 12 years of my life living in the country, with 2 older sisters and one older brother.

 

Yes, I'm the baby of the family. memories......

 

The big move to the city! From a big house, 4 bedrooms, 2 bath rooms, living & dinning rooms,

 

eat in kitchen, huge basement finished on 3 acres of land. To a town house, 3 stories. walk in

 

the back ground level is a basement finished. Second floor was Kitchen, Dinning & Living rooms.

 

Third floor, three bedrooms and 1 bathroom. ugh!

 

I started this post on Jan. 13 my fathers birthday. Today is Feb 3rd watching the weather channel where

 

the big snow storm, blizzard, hit most of the country. Atlanta is having a windy day but is to going to

 

reach the 50's.

 

For awhile I was unable to get on the site so I started writing this in Word program. I will copy & paste

 

this in and will continue doing my blog this way, for I hate when I start my post and hit the wrong key

 

and loose the post. Till another post bye all.

It was fun to read your childhood memories. I love the innocence of childhood when you are not worried about anything just enjoying the present moment with what it offered be it snow or sun.

 

I think it's good idea to write in MS word & then copy & paste if you are not planning to finish in one sitting.

You should really love the weather you got there now! I couldn't handle it with my stroke. I been there a few years but it was summer time in Canton and Camp Perry for the shooting championships each year for 12 years.

 

Guss I'm spoiled being from Houston Texas! When I lived in Germany that was enough for me in snow and cold weather!

Jeannie, I loved your blog as usual. Your childhood and mine in England up to aged seven were similar. In 1955 I came to Australia, no snow here and summer lasted five months and was hot, hotter, hottest especially out on the western plains. I love autumn (fall) here, milder days, cool nights.

 

Thanks for reviving the memories.

 

Sue.
