Ok, I've been sick. The flu found me, knocked me down hard! I've not left my house in days so I missed the snow yesterday. I thought I'd have enough energy to get up and at least snap a few photos but I never did. So, if anyone wants to share about the snow day... or anything else please let me know! Be well... I hope to soon! Tj.

This was a little photoshop fun! I will try to get some actual photos of the event and post this weekend! Until next time... Tj.
I found another nest in a tree down by the park. This is a much larger nest, maybe a Crow or a Scrub Jay? Or maybe it's a squirrel? I don't think it is high enough to be a Hawks nest, they nest way up in the tallest trees and in buildings. I think I"ll have to walk down and keep an eye on this one too!
Have something to share? Let me know! Read post 53 for more info. Be well... Tj.
I am hoping to expand this blog. Southside park is such a great neighborhood. Lots of interesting people from many different cultures and points of view. I would love to get slice of life type stories to post from other Southside neighbors. If you have an interesting experience and you would like to share, please email to me at email@example.com and please put blog submission in the subject line so I can identify those quickly. If you give me your name and I post your experience, I'll include your name. Or, it's ok if you don't want your name here too! So, bring it on! What great things have you seen, heard, smelled, experienced here? Let me know and I'll get it posted! (disclaimer: I reserve the right to not post, this is my blog after all. Keep it positive and it's all good!) Until then... Tj.
My hubby and I arrived home last night around 8:30, after the YMCA, and as we pulled up to our house, out the corner of my eye I saw something moving looked like a cat at first but then I saw no…. not a cat. It was a possum! Just walking down the sidewalk in front of our house. It ran and hid under my daughters car where it proceeded to play possum! Until next time...
We have almost any type of church you could want to find in the Southside Park neighborhood. Just around the corner is a very small church that is almost never used. Once or twice a year we have seen people there cleaning off the roof of the building, and we hear the church bell ring. But it is a tiny space and I don't think used very often. I am really not sure what kind of church this is, en Espanol. It has the cutest little bell tower, and beautiful tile mural of Nossa Senhora De Fatima. Oh and beautiful dark pink camellias! Until next time... Tj.
Our neighborhood has a wonderful community garden which was started a few years ago. It sits on 5th street at the corner of W. Wonderful magical garden cared for with love. This is the new garden gate, added last year. What an enchanting entrance to a delightful place!
