For All My Cold Weather Readers

Ahhhh, San Diego. One of the reasons we moved back here from the East Coast was for the weather. Not to be cruel to my cold weather friends, but I love looking at the weather in New Hampshire and comparing it to here. What better way to spend a Saturday morning in February than to go to the beach? No wonder I'm not doing much knitting lately...


I've been tagged by SASKnitsItAgain for a fun little trivia list, so here you go:

The only time I can listen to the radio is driving in the car when my girls aren't listening to their music. I usually tune in to NPR or switch back and forth between 91X or 94/9 during commercials.

4 Places I'd Rather Be:
Nowhere (San Diego is looking pretty good right about now!)...but if we're talking where I'd mentally rather be that's another story...hmmm, how about more settled on a decision if I'm going back to work full time as an analytical chemist in the biotechnology industry or continue to be a SAHM and try to develop my own at-home business? Oh, if money wasn't an issue....

OK, you guys are tagged next:
Taravera
The Shetland Trader

C'mon, Karen...you really miss the 5 - 10 inches of snow we're going to get overnight, in addition to the 4 - 6 inches already on the ground?? =)) You're crazy! It was brutally cold yesterday with wind chills near 0. How could you not want to be here for this? You have the beach, we have snowmen, bare trees, sand on the roads....you're missing out!!

I live right in the center of one of the largest citys in the Netherlands. A few blocks away from Hollands largest sky scraper (nothing compared to most in the US...) and today I couldn't even see it because of all the fog, it didn't appear at all today...
(you've been in Amsterdam? You're a biowhatchamacallitanalyst? Interesting!)
