Will 2010 be MY year? I hope so and I hope it’s yours too.

I don’t know why but at the end of each year, I say the next new one will be MY year. “Your year for what?” you say….well, maybe to win the lottery? Buying a ticket might help. Meeting someone charming and wonderful who doesn’t lie? That won’t happen unless I get out of the house. Going out on the town would expose me to some possibilities but then I’m not sure I’m really interested. I’m pretty content living alone with my dogs. Maybe I’ll sell a painting at the exhibition I plan on entering in a few weeks. Hmmmm……….Ah well, it will be MY year whatever happens won’t it?

I do know one thing for certain, in two weeks, I'll be leaving my sunny 50 degree Phoenix to visit my daughter again in Fargo where it's zero degrees. See temps for Fargo here.

I think I'll be having lots of these.

Hope all of you have a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous 2010! Stay safe.

About pam

I am retired from real 9 to 5 jobs. I do my artwork and occasionally write poetry. In September 2010, I moved to Fargo, ND after spending 60 years in Phoenix, Arizona. Now, five years later, July 2015, I'm back in Arizona. And yes, I love the heat!

    Boots: Sorel … a French name, a great boot. The Mayor of Barrow told me about them. He also told me about the .44 Magnum under his coat, but I don't think you'll need one of those in Fargo … not many polar bears around Fargo.Be sure the hat at least has a flap to cover your ears. You'll thank me for it. The pattern in muskrat fur used by the US Army during the Indian Wars is excellent. There's a modern one in bunny fuzz made under the name "Mad Bomber", and probably others. Bunny skins are not as durable as muskrat.Skiers use a kinda stretchy headband to cover their ears … it seems to work for them, but skiers have always struck me as being the sort of folk who don't much care what happens to them, anyway.Mountain climbers, too. Utterly mad.

    I totally agree. And I would like to add bungee jumpers and freefall sky divers

    That's for sure Ed. Maybe there will be a million bucks for each of us!Originally posted by derWandersmann:

    I used to have one of those, plus ear muffs. I think I gave them away when I quit skiing. Originally posted by L2D2:

    I used to love to ski but I'd never try those two. Originally posted by NLDH:

    Here in Phoenix today it was near 70. I will be so spoiled when I get to Fargo.

    I just read my personal weather forcast that I get emailed to me from our local station. Says by Tues/Thursday, temps here will be in the teens and won't get above freezing for days. I am so dreading it. And I don't think I can get my pipes wrapped before it gets here. Guess I'd better stock up on water while I have time.

    linda, it's none of my business but if it were me, i would work all night wrapping the pipes. you can get electrical wires designed to heat the pipes ( the ones you can reach easily) at any home depot. you don't have to insulate the whole system.another thing you can do is run a trickle of hot water throughout the storm. i can only think that you haven't realized that pipes burst by freezing water can cost you a fortune to replace. at least turn off the main and drain the system before a freeze.

    I agree with Scott on this one. Frozen pipes break. Besides a very big plumbing bill, there will be water damage.He's right that it helps to keep a trickle of water running throught the faucets. Another tip from when I lived in Texas: open up the cupboard doors under the sinks to allow the heated room air to reach the plumbing.Best wishes!

    I do this, as well as leave faucets trickling. I cannot crawl under the house, no way, no how. They are saying we are going to have record lows for the next week or so, and maybe even into single digits.

    I definitely will have a good time in spite of the cold. The best part of this new year will be that I'll become a grandma.
