My to-do list includes taking China for her summer shearing. She looks at me with pleading eyes and panting tongue, "I'm frying in here, Abby! Time to chuck the fur coat already!". But I'm all, "Nope, not yet!"
I also need to take the big van in to replace the snow tires with the non-snow tires. Nope, not yet.
Because EVERY April since we've lived here, we've gotten all YAY, spring! And then we get hit with a wet winter snowstorm. Like this one. Here's the backyard today:
Meego got to sleep in, thanks to a delayed start to school. Note the wall of wall stones that aren't quite in the configuration we have in mind just yet. It'll be here soon, I know it!
And maybe NOW we can put winter behind us. We just had to make it over that April snow requirement? We're done??
One nice thing, I was out doing the bicycle commute biz yesterday. The storm gave me a chance to test out my new lobster claw gloves/mittens I recently got at end-of-winter clearance.
It was doing that. My hands never felt better! Can't say the same for my cheeks, though...
|Not my shirt, not my chest|
In the end, although I wasn't too happy to need the winter gear, I was happy I had it.
But now I'm ready to get back to t-shirt weather.
