The Funny Thing About Snowbirds (people)

The Santa Catalina Mountains just north of Tucson.
We are STILL in Oregon. Family you know. My husband and I are snowbirds so we go south when Fall season gets deep. Even though we call ourselves "snow" birds, we do NOT like the snow or even frost! I love being here in my home but my body doesn't like the Northwest temperatures as winter approaches.

 Our friends are in Tucson golfing and having cocktail hour. We look forward to joining them soon.

So now I am getting very ready to fly away for the winter. My husband and I don't think about Arizona until we are ready to go. But when we are ready, it is all we think about.

As for my body, it will wait a little while I suppose. The cold is not good but the warmth of our home, family and friends somehow makes it all okay.

Be well.


Note: Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of this post for earlier stories about our snowbird lifestyle.

Our porch in the evening


  1. I hear you. We're chomping at the bit to get out of the cold and down to the warmth. Ditto for family reason.

    1. I think we snowbirds bloggers share so much in our lives. Where do you winter?

  2. We leave right after Thanksgiving. Even after over a week in Hawaii, I'm ready for Arizona.

    Shall we get together for an evening in December?

    1. Yes, we should. We will be down the week after Thansgiving (leaving on Sunday). Call me when you want to meet for dinner. Wonderful!!!!


Leave your thoughts...I am interested.
