spt -- weather or not


I had big plans for this week: yard work, big time (for real).

The warmer weather and sunshine were finally working, I was finally feeling some motivation to get out there and make a difference. Pruning. Raking. Mowing. The whole shebang.

But yesterday was cold, cloudy, and very windy. It rained like crazy last night, and then the rain turned to snow. This morning, it even hailed for half an hour. Huh.

As much as I love hibernating, I don't really care for enforced hibernating. In fact, I feel quite irritable when I finally work up some motivation and energy at the same time, only to be foiled.

That's Spring in Utah for you. Who knows? Maybe the rest of the week will be gorgeous.

I too, hate enforced hibernation.
I do not miss Utah weather, I have to say. I am enjoying my azaleas too much.

Marie said...

This looks very much like my own weather today.

I feel ya!

Janna said...

Your weather is similar her in Idaho.

Cute picture of your feet & it nice to visit your blog.

I am a fellow spt too
:)

Jill said...

I'm distracted by the state of your toes since I know they are a direct indicator of the state of your mental health. You need a pedicure STAT!

Susan said...

Jill's comment is too funny! But I have to admit that I was thinking something along the same lines..

Utah weather...go figure.

Tasha said...

I HATE enforced hibernating! That's what we've been doing here...

Yowza. For some reason I always envision Utah being warm and sunny...AND NOW I KNOW that's not true. ha!Go curl up under a blanket and think nice thoughts.

Hi Michelle - I've just read through your amazing posts on your amazing grandma Charlottoe. I'm sorry for your loss, but delight in your positive attitude that she is in God's company and able to do many more wondrous things from up there! I lost my step-dad at the end of February to cancer, and he died in a hospice. I can relate to so much of what you have said in your posts. And the images are very precious.

Weather? Yuk! If it's any consolation, the UK is experiencing mild temps and sunny intervals, but a COLD easterly wind blowing straight from Scandinavia and the Baltics. Woo-hoo! It's bracing.

I think, with the bereavements we've gone through, and this up-and-down weather, we just have to 'go with the flow' baby! xx

Amanda :-) said...

Urgh, I put a magic 'e' on the end of your Grandma's name! Sorry! It can be an 'e' for 'extraordinary'! x

Denise said...

Colorado weather is much the same, though we had a nice day yesterday--if a bit gusty with wind.

Seeing you toenails made me feel better about my own.

And yes, I still am feeling exhausted by "all that crying."

jenn said...

I didn't notice the state of your toes until Jill said something- I was loving the bright pink next to the dreary snow that just can't seem to go away.

As of last night, the weather is supposed to be much warmer (improved!) as we head into and through the weekend. Good luck with your outside plans!

Lene said...

Only a true friend could comment like Jill.

Your crazy Utah weather makes Arizona even more enjoyable.

charlotte said...

Yeah, the weather yesterday was completely bizarre. I'm hoping it gets nice soon!

Michelle said...

All I could think upon seeing your spt is...aren't her feet freezing?

Apparently, my body temp is ready for warm weather...'cause my feet are sooo cold!

The only reason I'm not thrilled with the snow still remaining in my flower beds is the fact that it smushed my daffodils!

Melinda said...

I hope you don't mind that I totally copied your picture idea of your feet. There was no way I could take a picture of myself with how broken out I am. We had crazy weather yesterday also.

Kelly said...

I'm amazed by the crazy Utah weather this spring. Your poor toes look way too chilly for April!

rebekah said...

Jill's comment made me laugh. I had to have an emergency razor blade session on my feet last night. Things were getting pretty grim. Tonight, it's toes. Unless I'm too lazy and I decide to just go get a pedicure tomorrow.

Becky said...

I am laughing at how Jill, your mom, and your aunt all are worried about your toes and all *I* was thinking was, "Wow, I'm amazed at how she always has on toenail polish and makeup, etc....I NEVER have time to make my toes looke cute!" Perspective is a funny thing :)

Fun SPT...hope you get some good weather this weekend!
