This Crazy Weather!

I don't know what this weather is doing except acting crazy!  I woke up yesterday morning to find this outside my door...

snow

When was the last time it snowed...in Texas...during spring?  Seriously.  I feel like I'm living back in Connecticut where sometimes the last snow fell in April.  Oh, but wait, it was warmer in Connecticut yesterday than it was in Texas.  What is wrong with this picture?  I had dreams of planting herbs and flowers this weekend, not turning my heater back on while I tried to keep warm under afghans!

Well, on the bright side, those mittens and hats got one more use.  Just when I thought they were hibernating until next season, and it was time to pull them out once more.  Hopefully it is just once more.  You might be asking why I seem so bitter about the winter.  Well, it goes like this.  I almost feel like I've been in a perpetual winter.  With the seasons opposite down in the Southern Hemisphere, the last summer I experienced was Christmas 2008 into 2009.  Don't get me wrong.  Although it gets cold in S. Africa, it doesn't snow in our region and we did see some warm days before we came back in November (but it sounds dramatic, doesn't it?)   I am, however, ready for longer spells of warm weather that I can enjoy.  It's almost like some kind of Narnia...always winter, never summer.  So warm weather, I wait patiently for you to come and linger around for a while...

Oh, yeah, and don't forget to check out the deals in my store!

Oh no, perpetual winter!

My kids talked with my parents this morning to see and learn about snow - no chance for it here in warm, sunny Perth. :D
