I’m reposting last year’s Groundhog Day post with a bit of editing. Hope You enjoy! Also, six years ago today we emptied our U-Haul that brought us from New Jersey to Kansas City, Missouri! Six years and I’m still here and things are going well. Oh, and it’s still cold this time of year!
It is February 2nd, 2014. Each year, on this date in the USA, we celebrate Groundhog Day. We anxiously await the prediction of the famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, to tell us when spring will come. This winter, in particular, we want to hear of an early spring arrival. Didn’t happen. The famous furry creature has told us six more weeks of winter .
It’s an amusing celebration that we have acquired over the years. But what made it even more fun for us Americans was Hollywood’s production of Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray and Andi MacDowell. Totally enjoyable and some watch it every year to add to the fun of it.
** written last year** This year is extra special. The Superbowl is today also! And the game will be in New Jersey (my home state) where it is very cold right now. But even more special for my husband and I is the fact that five years ago, this very day, we drove all our possessions into Kansas City, Missouri to begin a new adventure. Here we are. It has been an adventure of ups and downs and adjustments. Now we look forward to more………….
Happy Sunday everyone and oh, Happy Groundhog Day to y’all!
