A Snow-Bird’s View

Frogs, lizards, butterflies, and hummingbirds
Continuously blooming flowers
The scent of freshly cut grass

Palm trees, hibiscus, and bird of paradise

Live oak trees with moss swaying in the breeze

Singing birds in December

The ease of  going wherever, whenever without the need to bundle up

Sandals, flip-flops, and pedicures for life!
White shorts, sundresses, and tank tops

So much less stress
Sunshine everyday
Magnificent sunsets
Beautiful beaches with sugary sand, seagulls, sandpipers, and dolphins

Warm temperatures to ease achy muscles

Humidity to keep skin soft and supple

Did I mention sunshine?

Cocktails on the lanai before dinner

Oh, hell, cocktails on the lanai after dinner

Welcome to My World

This is my very first post.  I’m so excited to start blogging!  I’ve wanted to do this for a long time now and am finally working up the nerve to do it!  I love to write, but I’ve always kept most of my writing to myself.  I write about personal experiences, intimate details of life that I have always been afraid to share with others.  Most people don’t like it if you talk about them, and they hate it if you write about them!  I’m usually just honest in my observations about myself and others–of course perspective is everything–however, understandably, most people don’t like to have their lives examined and commented on. So, Carol Raymond is my nom de plume in order to protect the innocent!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not gossiping. I’m just trying to get through life like everybody else, perhaps learn a thing or two along the way, and have a good time.

I hope that you will enjoy my musings!
