About Me

My photo
I am a retired English teacher and department head, the mother of three, grand mother of three, and have been married to the same man for 42 years. I subscribe to Dr. PM Forni's concept of Civility. I was born in South Philadelphia and grew up in the 'burbs. I love soft pretzels and cheesesteaks, the Phillies, the Eagles, and San Diego. I love being Mom, Aunt Kathy, Nona Kathy, and Teacher. I spend a lot of time in my gardens in the spring and summer, and in the winter I plan what I'm going to plant. I also am an avid reader and photographer.

This is a warm image since we have a whole lot of snow after our all day snow event yesterday. I popped over from Jane's blog. xo

It is so cold down here right now. I wish you had warmer weather while you were down here.

It reminds me of where I grew up...I like our little mini-seasons here better though. (I can say that because we are snow free so far this year!)

I need all the help I can get to feel warm. We had temperatures in the upper 30s this afternoon and that almost felt warm.

What is that growing on the tree? I've never seen a palm tree like that. Some kind of parasitic plant? Almost looks like mistletoe.
