This is what my mom calls pneumonia weather. In fact, just this morning I was talking to her on the phone and we were talking about all the people we know who are sick and she said “Yep, this is pneumonia weather”. That’s the kind of weather we have been having lately.
This morning I woke up to the weatherman saying it was 19 degrees. 19!!! Monday it was in the 60’s!!! WTH??? What is going on with our weather? Is this the result of global warming? Literally Sunday when we were in East Atlanta at #2’s and we took Rufus for his walk/run you didn’t even need a jacket! I wore one but about halfway through the walk I wanted to take it off and tie it around my waist.
Not only was it warm, flowers were blooming! I first noticed the daffodils were budding and then a few feet later there were daffodils that were blooming! Beautiful, gorgeous sunny yellow daffodils that I’m not used to seeing until the very earliest March! It was JANUARY 1st!!!
Anyway, that wasn’t the only vegetation we found growing like crazy. There were pansies and some sort of black eyed Susans (I’m not sure what their actual name was), and cabbage and chard. Our walk was abundant and teeming with life. Vegetable and critter. From the squirrels skittering in the trees overhead, to the flowers, and the Rottweilers that were trying to claw their way out of their yard to get to Rufus.
Please enjoy our walk!
