We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.

Time to get out the Umbrellas


In the Winter when you still suffer anxiety at the thought of snow, you stop and think, it doesn't snow in Florida. My stay here so far has been anxiety free ... until now. 
But along with the lack of snow, is the lack of that feeling and the sight of Autumn, my favorite time of year.
And now, just to be sure that I am not too relaxed and feeling too safe .. there are Hurricanes here and there and now we are getting warnings of our own .. rain , lots of rain, flood type rain. Wind, with a forest behind my house .. tall trees .. wind .. floods .. I think there is something almost Biblical about the weather forecast ..
time to get out the umbrellas !

The Story for anyone who reads this blog but has no clue about me ....

My husband and I moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina and lived there for 7 years.
We came home to the US when a new baby was expected in the family ..
My husband saw a doctor and had a test . nothing was wrong, he was quite healthy.
We were happy.
A few mornings later,  my husband  died  .
 I lived there in that house for as long as I  could manage alone, then sold it and moved where there is no snow .
But now I miss New York and will probably move back soon.


This is the short version. If you want to read the long version, just start with the first blog or go to NotesFromABroadBlog .. 

Thank you to everyone who reads my blogs and who contacts me in emails, I love you too :)

A Change Is Gonna Come

The Housewife might take a vacation. I feel that there is really nothing to talk about at this time.
When I make a change in my "situation" , I think there will be more to talk about and more interest.

As it is now- I stay home, if I go out on my own, I get lost .. I now panic easily because I think I am lost and I am not .. or I worry I will get lost so I stay home.
Yes, me ... the woman who put the cats in the car and drove , alone , well, with the cats but they refuse to share the driving , from New York State to Florida.

I am living in the most beautiful condo, with a State Forest of pine trees behind me .. flowers and lawns and high fences and  big gate .. but I am very alone and also .. it is  also dreadfully boring.

I know it is safe, but it would be nice to look out the door and see humans. Now there is just a gecko here and there , sometimes a fabulous noisy bird will fly over, land by our lake and do some fishing. Thats nice .. but it doesn't make for a very interesting life.
And I am tired of being so isolated...

I also miss family in NY .. one person is not well, I don't know how much time I have left to see her again. So my mind is busy, zooming around, figuring out how to do this and where to go and what to do then.

So odds are .... A Change Is Gonna Come..
