Somedays I really miss living in North Carolina

But today ~ not so much! Their weather today in Raleigh is a high of 67 with a low of 39 and a 70% chance of rain. Here it is a high of 72 and a low of 62 with no rain in sight. I've been talking quite a bit with my North Carolina friends (even the ones that are no longer in NC) and it makes me miss them and being there. I do love a crisp autumn day and making soups and stews in the winter. I love how pretty it looks when everything is blanketed in fresh snow then I remember... getting stuck in the house for long periods of time because EVERYTHING closes when it snows and all the missed school days that have to be made up on the days you were planning something really fun. I don't miss raking up all the leaves in our "heavily wooded" property that we thought sounded so cool when we first moved up there.

Maybe someday I'll be back there hopefully surrounded by family and friends and I'll be happy to being there ~ really grateful for being alive. Until then ~ I am one happy gal, soaking up the sun. And speaking of happy here are my two youngest actually looking like they are getting along ~DSC02203 but don't be fooled it's just that his sister had her game boy and he didn't so he sat close enough to share hers. We ate dinner at Uno's which I normally enjoy but tonight was kind of a disappointment. The food just wasn't up to it's usual standard and it seemed much louder than usual and our waiter was just so so. I guess you win some, you loose some.
Well hubby and I are off to watch the last couple of episodes of the first season of Heroes. Have you seen this show? When it first came on last year I watched an episode or so but hubs was away doing his 6 months in Va and I missed an episode or two and really didn't catch up or on to it, but he mentioned he would have liked to have seen it from the beginning cause it seemed fairly interesting. Santa Claus brought him season one this year and he and I are so very hooked on this show now. We are 2 episodes away from the season finale and are already freaking out over how to get season two immediately! I unfortunately know a little about how season two ends although it could be one of those very misleading cliff hangers. I guess I'll just have to wait and see. Something I'm not very good at!
So, How was your day?

I'm addicted to the show Heroes. My kids and I watch it together. Season two isn't quite as good as season 1, but it was still very good.

I'm in love with that Milo V. dude who plays Peter. He's very easy on the eyes!

I've loved Milo since he was on Gilmore Girls ~ Bad boy Jess! I've seen a couple of the previews for season 2 and not sure how I feel about the "new heroes". I have trouble keeping up with too many people.
