Attractive Differences

It’s a balmy 6C here at 43.4516 N Latitude today, while my friend basks in an approaching New Zealand summer. Why balmy you ask? The morning started out at -2. As a rusty trusty Canadian I have a rule. Below zero I wear leggings under jeans and clothes to venture out. I suppose if I had long underwear that would be my garb of choice.

I must say I love winter, and summer, well, all the seasons. First snow, go outside and breathe. The air has a crispness and purity that I can’t find any other time of year. Went the ground and trees are covered in thick snow the world around takes on a quietness only experienced in winter. I used to think I wanted to live with palm trees all year round and in fact lived in south Texas for a couple of years, and thought I would stay, but a trip home after eighteen months to hills, streams, lush greenery, the whole flora and fauna thing and I was hooked.

Southern Ontario, where I abide, is nestled in the beauty surrounded by great lakes, hills, history, and vineyard! Love Canadian wine – okay – also New Zealand wine. Oh and German – well I am an internationally favourite drinker. Or is it internationally favoured drinker? Anyway, you get the point.

I must dash – in the middle of blocking and sewing together a knitting project – takes longer than the darn knitting but well worth the effort. Just had to pop in and thank all who ‘liked’, ‘followed’ and ‘commented’ our inaugural post yesterday.

Y’all have s wonderful day!!

One is about 43 degrees latitude N. The other almost equidistant south latitude. Two women, two minds, different personalities and experiences, choosing a life of meaning, continual growth and learning, at the same time negating ageist opinions of exactly what ‘an old lady’ should be.

  1. What a great idea! I’ve been following you, Judith, for a very long time – possibly ten years, not sure as time accelerates with age. And have been encouraged and inspired by you. Chris I recognise from comments on Judith’s blog. I look forward to reading your future posts.
