"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

your guess is as good as mine








It was a beautiful day.  The trio of girls headed out to walk the town in their t-shirts and sunglasses! I thought they were crazy until I stepped out myself.  Just beautiful.  There was a moment around noon that the breeze began to pick up and I got nervous.  I thought, "here it comes."  But it really was just that, a breeze and nothing more.  In fact, it blew out quicker than it blew in and still we were warm in our shirt sleeves.  When I finally got the kind of curious that makes you check the weather station for a temperature I was shocked to know that we had done it.  We reached seventy degrees today!  

Obviously these photos are not from today but from this 'winter'.  You know, day before yesterday.  Can we all say it again?  Schizophrenic... nay, bi-polar.  This weather deserves psychiatric care but I'm not having it admitted while it's seventy.  I'll wait until winter.  You know, day after tomorrow...


Blessings, Debbie

    Now that just made me laugh!!
    I think I've diagnosed our problem as senility. Apparently "old" man winter just plum forgot to show up.

  2. This whole post was a hoot! Are those your furry family? We have been having similar weather, but are heading for spring...yep, no more than one storm away from spring is my prediction.

  4. Those pictures are awfully cute! We also had a warm day - 68 degrees. It was wonderful, even though extremely windy.

  5. funny!
    We are having the same type of weather here in MA - I actually got laundry on the clothesline yesterday - today, rainy and chilly again. Next week back to the 60's.
    I am finding it funny that all the people who complained about the snow last year are complaining there is no snow this year!

  9. Debbie, We had the same thing this week. Snow on Monday, sunny and warm on Wed. & Thurs. Today is sunny, but not supposed to be as nice -- rain is coming and they're saying the snow level may drop to about 1000' by Monday which of course means we'll likely get snowed on. Again. Have a great weekend and enjoy that company while she's there. :) ~Lisa

  10. Oh good, I was afraid you were out walking in t shirts and that blew in, Yes, spring is calling, trying to tempt me to plant a garden. I am not listening but I feel I am growing weaker. :)
    I am so glad you had a 70 degree day, they are just beautiful.

  12. Bi-polar weather - heehee! It's been the same around here. I do enjoy the warm days! I'm glad you didn't get caught in a snow storm!

  13. Oh I am glad I am not the only one with bi-polar weather. It is so weird here in WA!! Clarice

  14. Wow, yesterday was spectacular here too. The snow just went down a lot and it was a really nice spring day. JB

  15. We started out yesterday just wearing a light sweater outside. Sometime in the night it snowed! Mother Nature's mood swings are playing havoc with my sinuses. But boy was it nice to go outside without lugging around a heavy winter jacket. I'll take more of that weather please!

    Happy weekend to you!!

  17. You are such a good writer, Debbie! Quite a clever (and accurate) take on the weather. (Ours has been schizophrenic too.)
    And your fur family is sooooooo cute!
    Enjoy your weekend...whatever the weather.
    Blessings,

  18. We had a day like that this week too! Now this morning it is in the 30s. I am tempted to put away the winter coats but I think I better wait ;) I love your shamrock pancakes on your header- great idea.

  19. I like that thought...psychiatric care for the weather! So true! Sadly, we get no snow down here...but maybe this bi-polar Schizophrenic weather will go crazy and bring us some!

  20. We are delightfully warming up here! It's been lovely - but we still could get snow before it's officially Spring! Bi-polar is correct!

  22. The pups are so cute! Such sweet faces!
    I know what you mean! Weather in Colorado is crazy, but today the sun was heavenly. We all sat outside and soaked it into our souls!

  23. Your enthusisasm for the white dishes restoration tip is making me smile! I was plenty enthused myself to learn this trick. I kept saying things like "Amazing!" and "I never would have believed it!" and "LOOK at that!" and things like that. Do you think that the Lord cares about my white dishes? I think that He does.

    And you had the same pattern?! Another thing to add to our list!

    {{{Hugs}}} to my kindred spirit!

  24. We've got the same bizarre patterns going - but then, we're in the same slip stream. The day we left for Santa Fe, snow finally fell here. Rachel was taking care of the horses and slogging around in knee high snow to do it. We had no such weather down there. By the time we got home -- two days later -- the arena had almost dried itself out and there wasn't a hint of snow anywhere. The crocus were up. I missed winter for a three day trip.

  25. Hi Deb! Doesn't that shamrock pancake dish in your banner look delicious - dare I ask if it is gluten free??

    Fun looking at your pictures and adventures - your 70 degree day - yeah - weatherman back east here is getting shot for all his big predictions this week that didn't pan out. Glad you got ours though - more ahead as one day rolls into the next.

    Thanks for your sweet Blogoversary comments - so lovely getting to know you, too - and more adventures in Blogworld ahead!

    Be in touch!
    Joy!
    Kathy
