Not that I'm entirely complaining... but I do need to note this for my records that The Year We Were Winter-Free is progressing along nicely.
This morning it was very cold with an even colder morning on tap for tomorrow. I think it will be about 22* (that's Freedom Units and not metric for you international readers...). And then it will warm up and be in the 50* and 60* for next week. Chance of a white Christmas = zero.
Who's happy about this? The cold, I mean? Kai. No one was happier than Kai to run right out there to and run around crazily in the cold than Kai. She went wild this morning racing around in the little bit of snow we have on the ground.. And then I got mad because it was cold and we all went inside. Now Kai is mad and is making plans to travel to the Land of Snow and Ice.
What's happening here?
Nothing. It hasn't been a great week here so there has been minimal activity. Remember my wonky hip? Yeah. I thought I had escaped the festive annual Hip Wonk but nope. I was laid low again. Then just as I was ambulatory again I made the mistake of being around people. So then I ended up sick... then hungover by the sickness cure, then a general malaise set in. So I spent most of the week watching cat videos on the interweb. Now I'm just mad and waiting for it to be 60* again.
They showed the extended forecast and it looks like the suckers on the West Coast are going to get our cold and snow and it's nothing but smooth sailing for us. I am not complaining. I'll take a temperate winter any day.
The mild weather also gives me the chance to work on some projects I've been putting off while I was waiting for winter to hit. More on that just as soon as I can get off the couch.
Happy Saturday everyone!
ps. THANK YOU to everyone who made purchases from my completely lame, entirely sensible wishlist! I can't see who orders what so I cannot thank you personally... but I'm very grateful for every click!
