The weather was so beautiful last weekend. Sunday the thermometer said 70. Not in the sun, actual air temp. Short sleeves, yard work, window washing weather.
Yesterday morning the thermometer said 22 degrees! That's just wrong. But it goes to prove who's in charge here, and it's not us. Mother Nature says we're not done with winter just yet. Or maybe it's just that she's not done with winter. This morning it was in the high 20's with a forecast for mid 40's this afternoon, so there's hope.
The Sunday morning ritual around here is coffee and the paper in front of a fire. Last weekend it looked like that was over for this winter. I almost cleaned out the fireplace this week but didn't. I must have had a premonition that there was one more fire left in the winter.
No one enjoys the fire more than Lucy. She likes her coffee, too. If we could only teach her to read.
