Fonetic Friday: Word of the Day

I'm bored with Fonetic Friday so I decided to do something different today.

For some reason I just can't seem to get New Orleans out of my head lately. I dream of being able to pack up my stuff every winter and move down there for January and February. I've even started looking at houses for sale, (even though I can't in anyway shape or form afford it, let alone get off work for two months every year.)

So what about you? Do you dream of having a house in a warmer climate during the winter, if so where? Do you already have one? What about people in other countries, Do people have winter homes/summer homes? What are the "hot spots"?


  1. Just one home, but I dream of a castle in Scotland, surrounded by snow...

  2. I want to move to Bora Bora Island! Before the ice melts and these islands are overwhelmed!
    :-) Take care

  3. Nope. We're the opposite. We wish for a house in the snow every winter. You know, the grass is always greener...well, with the snow maybe I should say the grass is always prettier?

  4. Hi Melissa,
    Thank you for sharing your wisdom with the world!! It is a precious gift from God whatever you hold in your heart and wish to share with others worldwide. It is a true blessing.
    God's richest blessings may always abound in your life, Melissa, and those you love!!
    I enjoy reading your blog as a follower.
    All the Best,
    Starry Dawn.

  5. I dream about adventures in African or South American countries in the winter. I dream of -- and am actively working towards -- a lifestyle where I can work in the states in the summer, and travel all winter.

  6. YES.. my sentiments EXACTly (hence my winter post the other day)... I've been dreaming of Florida lately... I went for the first time back in 2008 and I absolutely fell in love with it. I wish I was there now.

  7. Key West, Florida would be nice. Maybe you could be a hand on a fishing boat. I bet you'd come home with stories to tell.

  8. I never had that dream before, but this winter is killing me! At least it has warmed up a bit huh?

  9. Okay, so I live in the panhandle of Florida and it's coooold here! But a few weeks ago, I took a cruise to Cozumel (we ported out of New Orleans, and it was cold there too!) and I got off the boat in Mexico wearing a tank and capris and sunblock. So, I'd have to vote Cozumel for the winter. Even though the crazy people who lived there were wearing long sleeved shirts and saying how chilly 80 degree weather is!

  10. Turtle Island. It's where Blue Lagoon was filmed. That's my mental escape place.

  11. I spent a week in Bermuda during October, years ago. Pink beaches, palm trees, hours lying in the sun. Lovely.

    Speaking of fonetic friday, I had 'ingliz' a little while ago. Made me giggle.
