I hope the folks at Accuweather know that my plans are in their hands! I look at Accuweather out for days in advance and plan everything from my grocery shopping to taking food out to the compost bin (which is about 20 steps from my door) based on what they say our weather is going to be.
Yes, I need to clean the glass!
When I say I love cold weather, I don’t mean I like being cold! I think what I like is hibernating in the house, not feeling guilty about not picking up the twigs the river oaks have dropped, not feeling like I need to go sweep or blow off the deck. When it’s cold outside, there’s no guilt about sitting in the house and knitting. Of course, in Missouri, there are far less chores I should be doing outside than there were in Texas.
I do plan my trips out based on the weather. I need to go to the post office so I’ll probably go Thursday. Sometimes their descriptions are comical. Today: A.M. showers, then a shower. Does that mean an afternoon shower?
Next week, it’s going to cold . . and by cold, I mean cold for my Texas blood that hasn’t adjusted to MO temps yet.
I think later on in the week, it’s going to get warmer. Vince said I have to go somewhere at least once every 7 – 10 days to keep the car battery charged. He wanted to send the battery minder thing with me and I said NO . . I am not messing around under the hood of my car. With winter coming and him still not living here, and more changes of 7 – 10 cold days in a row, I might better get him to bring that thing and show me how to use it.
One thing for sure – the weather changes. I always look at the forecast for days and weeks in advance, knowing that it’s always going to change but I guess that’s about the same as all the plans I make . . knowing I’ll change my mind a dozen times about everything I plan.
