groundhogs and the big city.

sometimes in the winter, i wish i lived somewhere urban, in the north, where the cold matters because we all walk everywhere and we have a mass transit system that works. here in the birmingham, the buses run empty all the time, wasting money that the county doesn't have, and people whine about how it's so cold even though it's 45 degrees and they're climbing into their land rover, pulling out of their heated garage.

but, i know i don't really want the big city life, in some old city up north. i like trees, and wide open spaces, and beaches, and quiet. and i love summer.

i just get a little jealous when i see all these craft blogs like this. that's not all. there are more. all based in some cooler city like new york, seattle, baltimore, or boston. i think i once saw a craft blog from atlanta. and it's not like i blame them, because here, it's too hot most of the year to sit inside and make things, and also, in case you haven't noticed, birmingham is a really boring city. i've heard people complain about how boring atlanta is and how it sucks, but clearly, they've never experienced all birmingham has to offer. ha ha.

at any rate, here i am, in this little city, minus a craft blog. one day maybe i'll go north and see if i like it. i suspect i'll be the like the curious ground hog, sticking my nose up and out, only to run back to my familiar and warm little home.
