Really? In May?

This is what greeted me as I went out for the newspaper on Sunday morning:
Admittedly, it didn't stick around very long, but still! Not something my brain was ready for before coffee...
I mean, a month ago, it was so warm, the kids were swimming in the lake!
The day did improve - my son got back from his buddy's place and gave me a big hug, and some handmade Mother's Day gifts, my in-laws came for dinner, and I talked to my Mom in Florida - it was in the 90F range, while I was staring at snow. Surreal. She'll be home in a few weeks, and we'll have a Mom Day celebration then.

It was kind of strange having my husband around - his poker weekend got shifted back a week, so next weekend, my son and I will go on our annual forest hike. (Hopefully the weather will be a little more conducive to outdoor activities.)

I've been working away on my Red Green Sweater - I'm at the "11 inches of mindless stockinette" part, so it's good knitting for me right now - my brain is working overtime on other things, so following a chart would not be a good thing right now.

And those "other things" might get in the way of blogging for the next little while, so if I'm not around as much as usual, no worries, I'm still here. Just distracted by things.

It was definitely odd on Sunday, heading out for Mother's Day brunch, in my dress with bare legs, and little snow flakes swirling around.

Isn't Global Climate Change a wonderful thing?

You really don't have to wait very long these days to find evidence of global warming to you? Its like seasons are now only about shopping rather than what they used to be about - "weather"! (Remember our nice autumnal "summer" last year?

BTW Wow you go outside before having caffeine? That's impressive!
