Friday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.

I love snow. I have always loved shovelling snow. I would shovel our driveway before going to school. I would always make forts. I would dig deep holes. I always made snowmen. And I always did these things with my kids when they were young. I remember making the forts with them and making seats in the fort and we would have a snack in the forts. They loved it. I love walking outside when there are big snowflakes falling, the smell of fresh air, the smell of fire places. I have cross country skiid, downhill as well. Snowshoeing, sliding, all of it. But when it gets to -30 C. then I don't like it!! LOL. And we get those temps in Ottawa, Canada, every year. Wanna come visit me! LOL! They are calling for 10 to 15 cm on Sunday, I can't wait!!!

One day at a time!!

I don't like the cold weather like I used to.  I've lost most of my insulation and I'm constantly looking for warm stuff to wear.  I enjoy being inside and making cookies or candy and keeping warm in the process.

I love to watch the snow fall and the hush of the town when everybody decides not to go outside because it's too cold.
I live on the busiest road in the town and cars are always flying by, but when it snows no one is on the road. It's so quiet.
In the south (GA) two inches of snow can paralyze the town. No one knows how to drive on it. :)) Every year it snows someone winds up wrecked in our front yard. (I live on a curve.)

I love the comfort of a real fire and a glass of wine. I am not fond of cold snowy weather at all, yet I've lived with it for 15 years now. I just find the older I get, the harder it is to stay warm or feel safe on the ice and snow (I've fallen twice and broken bones both times).

I do love how pretty everything looks after a snowfall, but I prefer to admire it from my window while I'm snuggly warm inside!
