Do you remember those Family Circus cartoons? Not sure if they are still one of the cartoons that are going strong, haven't read newspaper cartoons in years. But I do remember the ones where the little boy went wandering around the neighborhood and the cartoon showed his path with little trail marks. I was reminded of that yesterday when I was out and about. The fresh snow sitting on the ground is a blank canvas waiting for some critter to walk on. I saw all these little paths in the snow that was made by all kinds of critters. In fact, just outside our bedroom window a big, 'ole rabbit was jumping around. I just thought it was cute...these huge expanses of snow with crisscrossing trails leading to and from the woods. In fact, right now I am looking out my window and just following the edge of the brush are a new set of tracks. So far my favorite tracks have been made by chihuahuas in deep snow. You will see four tiny feet struggling to lift out of the snow with one big belly-drag imprint down the middle!
I am a 4th generation Floridian who's family's past revolves on or around the sea. My husband is the man who has been my best friend for more years than I can count. We are foster parents & have welcomed a few kids into our home. Our goal is to eventually adopt. We have some furry children-2 Chihuahuas & 2 cats. We have both been vegetarians for over 20 years. I feel most comfortable cooking in a kitchen & especially enjoy cooking for large groups. I love the sound of distant train whistles, a large diet coke from McDonalds, political humor & reality TV. I have a pathological fear of bears, though I’ve accepted them in my yard! I have acted on stage & love the moment backstage just before an entrance. My dad had a green thumb that I wish I had inherited, but sadly I kill most of my plats. I adore movie musicals & have too many favorites to count. The biggest fish I've landed was a 95 lb. yellow fin tuna. There have been many jobs in my lifetime but until moving to PA I worked in the scrapbooking industry since 1999. Now I am "Misses Jen" to a hoard of kids in the crazy-fun Toddler Room of at a Preschool. Travel is one of my favorite things to do & I want to see the whole world!
