Warm mornings, warm days and nights…warm hearts, and very cold feet. We’ve been warmish around here, easily reaching 30 C, which is 86 F, or HOT for those who want to convert.
Spring here means cold feet, and frozen toes well into July. Our cute little house has chilly floors, and the window where I write my blog is at floor level.
Wide open, with birdsong, and an early sun peeking over the mountains, sliding through the giant fir trees in the yard slipping through the screen. I’m writing this at 5:30 am, there’s a draft of fresh wonderful air wafting through, snaking around my already cold feet, rushing up the stairs to the bedrooms. The rooms upstairs are stuffy first thing in the morning, nice in the winter, but not so pleasant in the heat.
I’m not about to close that window, deciding instead to put another layer on, and wool socks on my feet.
It makes for a bit of a excentric gardener look when I go outside…a flirty skirt, grazing the knees, [perfect for gardening ] pink garden clogs, and bright blue striped woolen socks.
Oh, and a sweater…because it’s cold enough inside to make you think we have the air on…although we don’t.
It’s all fresh country air.
Brisk, until noon, when it gradually warms up in here, and I shed my sweater.
Meanwhile the Boo is luxuriating in the heat, building up his tolerance by plopping down on the cement until he can’t stand it anymore, and then seeking shade.
There’s been reports of a young cougar prowling the back roads where my husband runs, only one of us is concerned, and it’s not him. The house across the street has fairly regular bear sightings…so I’m more than happy to live here. We have had a bear cub hanging out in the yard, but that was before we moved here…as long as it doesn’t eat my rhubarb, or the Boo, I’m happy.
Today’s “Have you met this blogger yet” bloggers.
Joy, from Canadian Garden Joy and Mildred, from Cat Tales.
Both avid cat lovers, and wonderful, friendly bloggers, whom I have known for almost as long as I’ve been blogging.
Joy sent me that gorgeous Ostrich fern in the photo above, and it makes me feel like I am living in a tropical climate when I look at it.
