to warmer climes

I took this picture of the front of my house yesterday morning. We have had another dump of snow since.

The shot below, of my 55lb dog sitting on my front walk, gives you an idea of the height of the snowbanks.

It's -21 Celsius (-6 Fahrenheit) today with the windchill. In other words, it's bloody cold.

I am off to Florida with my four year old tomorrow. We need to leave for the airport at 4:30am.

We are flying via Cleveland and it will take us forever to get there.

I don't care. It's going up to 24 Celsius (75 Fahrenheit) in Sarasota tomorrow. By this time tomorrow, I will hopefully have dipped my toes in the ocean.

And the only white powdery stuff around will be the sand on the beach.

I'll be back online on February 25th.

I also have a short post up at Mommybloggers.

I just stumbled across your blog, and wanted to firstly wish you a great trip.
Secondly, I wanted to let you know about a challenge I´m currently in the middle of in order to raise as much money as possible for the charity, Cancer Research.
My challenge is to get to every capital city in the European Union without a single penny in my pocket.
I´m 110 days into the challenge, and have knocked out 15 capitals already.
My adventures are documented on my blog, and I´d appreciate if you´d all have a look at my blog and if you like it, recommend it also to friends. Obiously the more attention I get, the better, because I want to reach as many potential sponsors as possible.

Take care, and I´ll be following your blog from now on.

You can treat cancer with Flavonoids!

It's easy, cheap and effective.



I want your opinion on this.

Flavonoids are compounds that come from fruits and vegetables. They work against cancer cells. Now there is a site that teaches how to use flavonoids against cancer.

Tell me what you think of it. Click on this message to visit the site.

Please blog about it.
