At 7:15 AM, it is already opening into a gorgeous morning and today’s forecast is a high of 83-degrees. The next several days are to reach the mid-80s with the upper 70s following for another several more days.
I don’t mind the hotter weather as I know I have time to spend on the deck and in the yard. I also don’t mind the colder weather. While autumn and winter are not necessarily my favorite seasons, I still cherish the variety, the overlapping, blending colors and scenery, and the opportunity to take photos of the oft-beautiful exchange from one seasonal chapter to another.
I am sure that if I were to check posts on social media, I’d find comments complaining about the impending heat to come. Of course, quite often, the weather complainers are consistent throughout the year. It’s always too cold, too wet, too hot, too humid, too dry, and so on. There’s precious little we can do about the weather. However, we can take measures to make ourselves comfortable. For those of us who are blessed, this is not a difficult response. Sadly, there are some folks who have limited options during weather conditions.
“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” – John Ruskin
I have three upcoming shifts in the next several days and I am trying to calculate when to mow my lawn as we expect a good amount of rain this Saturday. I am also trying to figure out research and writing time around shifts, yard work, and rest.
I am still chuckling from some of the comical scenes from THE DUKE, which I saw yesterday afternoon. I really want to see it again as it was so well written, directed, and performed.
It’s time to shower, prep for the day, and meet Bus No. 17 and 18.
Ahhh… and it is almost time for my iris to bloom. Pati Rogers gave me a ton of bulbs about ten years ago and they are gorgeous!
At the park, the lilac bushes are in full bloom and are gorgeous. Unfortunately, the scent of lilacs ignites an outrage with my allergies and sinuses.
