My photo
I am a girl/woman/human who has random thoughts. Sometimes you can find me here rambling, other times i might have useful stuff to say. For the most part, my friends and family can see what I might be up to in the days events. Or, for sake of sakes, its all made up... only i know.. and MAYBE a select few of you! Either way~ I am an American living in Australia. Oh, and any photo you see on this blog IS NOT FOR YOUR USE. If I have taken the photo myself or have permission to use it, YOU CAN NOT USE IT FOR YOURSELF. So be warned... and just dont use my damn photos.

Homesick

I dont know what it is today.. maybe its that its a bit dreary outside and cold and blustery...much like a MN September day. Maybe its just reminding me of things. Things I miss.

-the first snowfall
-the laughter of my friends
-the scurry to find your scarf before heading out the door
-one of my best friends wedding
-seeing my friends' kids grow up
-seeing my friends grow up
-spending Thanksgiving with Grandma
-not being the ONLY family to celebrate Thanksgiving in a 100km radius
-feeling the cold chill in the evenings
-looking at the frost on the windows
-etching your name into the frosty windows
-de-icing my eyelashes in the winter

Sounds odd to miss all these things. But, for whatever reason, MN still holds my heart. I love driving the section from Stillwater to Wisconsin and being able to see the Welcome sign.. it just makes me melt.

Funny, most of the things you listed (well, those pertaining to the cold anyway) are the things I DREAD! Maybe it's because the season of scraping frost from car windows is right around the corner and the first snowfall always leads to many more. Crikey, I dream of hearing Aussie accents all year long. I guess, we only want what we can't have...

I know, I had a bit of a chuckle after I wrote the list as well... I dreaded all those cold items as well. The only thing I really loved was being able to sit on the couch and look out the patio doors and watch the snow fall.

However, I think I want all those cold things just for a day, especially when its going to be a very hot hot day here.

Maybe its just a MN home feeling...
