I believe not having a garden for the first time ever has allowed me to be a bit immune to the changes in the summer season.

Other than changing a couple of calendars, being in a new home is keeping these changes in the season at bay.

Don't swear at me please, but I'm actually looking forward to winter. No snow to shovel, covered underground parking. :up:

If I were in your shoes, I'd be looking forward to that, too! I don't mind shovelling, so long as it isn't ridiculously cold.

I did keep one snow shovel. Not sure why, nostalgic?

Deep-seated paranoia?

It would take me a while to depend on others for snow removal . . . trust is earned. :admin:

After reading this, when will the governments start putting the "warning labels" on alcohol.

Corner unit with balcony, right? Depending on Mother Nature's mood when it comes to which direction the snow will be blowing, you might thank the stars you kept a shovel.
Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
