I always enjoy and look forward to my winter vacation. A winter vacation during the winter season is a vacation away from New England, winter, work, the cold, ice, freezing rain, sleet and snow. A winter vacation is a great way to take a break from the winter season, to change the winter season routine, to warm up, to split up the winter season and a reason to look forward to the winter season. I travel to either California or Florida to visit with relatives for my winter vacation. I am a very family oriented person. I do many of the things during my winter vacation that I enjoy doing all year long. I enjoy dining out which includes delicious food, fantastic company and great conversation. Nothing beats a delicious hot home cooked meal with all of the fixings. My sister who lives in Florida makes Jewish Meatballs when I go down to visit with her, my brother in law and my nephew. What a great meal. Jewish Meatballs have been in my family for at least four generations on my maternal side. I enjoy the hot and spicy kind just as much as the sweet and sour type. The aroma as they are being cooked excites my taste buds making them stand up at attention. These are made for very special family occasions. They can be served as an appetizer, an entree or as a snack. They taste out of this world, on another planet beyond our solar system in another galaxy. I am very interested in astronomy. When I visit with my cousins in California, I enjoy going to the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. They have a fantastic planetarium there as does the Museum of Science at Science Park in Boston. Whether a visit to a planetarium, going to NASA, talking about the space program, conversing about the cosmos or the possibility of life on other planets, astronomy is always a part of my vacation. Walking, hiking and running are included in my winter vacation. Sports are also included during my winter vacation. I will go to at least one sporting event. Running a road race really intrigues me. I run not for the competition, but for the camaraderie, enjoyment, excitement, exercise, friendship, fun, rapport and the sportsmanship that running provides. Science fiction is also included. Whether a book store, convention, demonstration, exhibit, extravaganza, movie, museum, program, screening, show or engaging in stimulating conversation, science fiction is always a part of my vacation. Sightseeing is something that I always look forward to whether on vacation or back at home in the northeast. I am always wide open to brand new activities and other exciting adventures. As much as I enjoy as well as look forward to my winter vacation, it is always good to be back home in Boston where I enjoy living and working in Information Technology for a health care organization. Now if I could just meet a nice polite easy going down to earth woman to warm my heart. That might just be the very best way to warm up during a cold, freezing, icy, snowy winter! Might that woman just happen to be you?
