Hot and sticky today

I know it says 91 today, but it feels more like 120! There is a touch of humidity in the air which lends to some stick clothes and uncomfortable situations when it comes to being out and about. The problem is that it is suppose to be getting hotter into the weekend and on into next week. Just wish I weren’t working in a dreary cave like  building tomorrow … sure it is cooler in there, but the place is dark and depressing! Oh for some greenery and water features to help not only cool one down but which lends a wee bit of calm into the mixture! But I guess when ones lives on the prairie one should expect that of ones environment.

Warm day …

Seems that winter has finally broken its hold on S. Dakota.  Despite the wind I have found it to be more of the August weather rather than May.  I started out with a sweat shirt and had to pair down to my skirt and sleeveless shirt (I wear this style shirt all year round, but usually layered).  I mowed the lawn and it was just dirt/dust that came up. I am afraid to do the weed & feed I would not have ANY green on the lawn area. So far with the dogs most of the grass is gone.  I am planning on doing the 6′ fence this year, at least on one side. Wish it could be more but unless I can get my craft business off the ground that will be the best I can do.  What do you think about caning and basket weaving? I can fit both in the little studio without much hassle. More later!

Warm weather (Finally, but for how long?)

Sunshine! Weather in the 70’s (Above not below!)and a chance to work in good old out of doors! Yeah right! My family is getting that lovely chance. I on the other hand have to wear a boot for the next 2 weeks after slamming my (this time) left foot into the metal framed recliner and broke the middle toe. At least I still have the boot from last time. Anyway, this really isn’t about my bum foot. I was just looking out at the beautiful spring day. There are a few fluffy white clouds floating across the blue ocean of sky. Sure the winds are about, but the squirrel family, which took over the abandoned house next door, are out and about gathering seed and food. I have counted about 10 robin red breasts, and yet the weather is hinting at more cold weather and sleet.
So how long before this weather goes down hill again? Who knows. At least we can enjoy it while it is here and hopefully take advantage of the warm sun while we do. Happy spring!
