A Fine February

Heidi sits in sun 2_20_14I used to hate February. It was the longest month of the year. When I was a kid in Montana, February often meant sky-high snowdrifts. When I lived in Northwest Washington, February was gray, cold, windy and rainy. Oh, and did I mention dark? Also, did I mention I have S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder)?

Last February, our first in Arizona, was on the cold side, with a couple of snow storms, but over all sunny. This year, oh my gosh–into the 70s last week, 62 today. That’s considered “summer” during two weeks in August in WA! No more S.A.D.!

Today, I got a bit chilled sitting at my computer, so I went outside to warm up! If it hadn’t been for a slight breeze, I might have been comfortable in shorts and a T-shirt!

My apologies to my family and friends in the frigid North. But I’m loving this!

Sunshine, Where Art Thou?

nt_cloudySo, I just flew from the northwest corner of the country to the southeast corner, hoping to escape the snow and the floods, hoping for a little sunshine and warmth. And what do I wake up to–cloudy weather in Orlando FL! I had to put on jeans and a jacket instead of shorts and tank top. What’s up with this?

The sun did come out later in the day and the temperature warmed up to about 60, but the natives are freezing. And with a bit of a breeze–surprisingly so am I!

Here’s hoping for that tropical warmth and sun when we board the ship on Sunday for the Caribbean. I ‘ll try to get back to more serious posts tomorrow. It’ll be a challenge to keep up with my daily blog posts, but I’ll try!
