Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Here on the Frozen Tundra We'll Take our Spring Flowers Any Way We Can Get 'Em


Today I found a surprise in the mail! It came all the way from Cali from my longtime bloggy friend, Headless.

A darling little football bracelet - - - does she KNOW me or what??? Later when football season rolls around, we shall PLAN to wear our bracelets together separately while we watch a game.

In the package I also found this little note card with perky spring flowers on it and a warm sunshiny note inside.

I promptly propped that little fresh breath of spring right up on the kitchen counter, because REALLY, we "ain't" got NONE of those growing 'round here!!! Shoot, we "ain't" even got sprouts!!!

Here on the frozen tundra we've still got a lot of this:

Yes, yes, YES!!! I took this photo THIS MORNING. Well - - - by the time this post publishes it will be yesterday morning - - - but you know what I mean.

By the way, do you KNOW how you KNOW if you live on the frozen tundra or not?????


I don't yet know ALL the signals but here is one:

If your walk-up window DQ reopens for spring in mid February, and come sleet, freezing rain, snow, or subzero temperatures the "natives" line up at the window, some of them wearing shorts and flip-flops, to order their non-dairy frozen treats - - -

You PROBABLY live on the frozen tundra!!!!

I kid you not - - - I haven't passed this DQ since mid February that it DIDN'T have a long line.

We natives of the frozen tundra are a hearty lot.

I'm linking this post to the "No Rules" Linky party over at Wit Behind the Ears.

We're across the pond from you - over in Michigan - and we know spring is on its way when our DQ reopens for the season. It's like a holiday around here!

No foolin' you guys are hardy. Or crazy. I haven't figured which.

I love Dairy Queen. We don't have close to us otherwise I would be there all the time. I was with Headless when she got that for you.
She was so excited to get it for you. So happy you love it!

I can't find my blog said...

Go football! Glad you like it!!!

I couldn't imagine having snow around for that long. Living in the south, I complained about the fact that it snowed twice this year and that it was "cold" at my kids' soccer game this morning (mid-50s).

I love the football bracelet.

Keetha that is a gorgeous morning shot. I love it! The DQ in Michigan that I used to frequent always had a line in March, too. They were only open on the weekends in March and April as I recall and there was always a line.
