So our weather has been playing with us over the last three weeks. Essentially, it gives as a solid work week of good, early spring weather (70-80 F), followed by weekends which are cold and rainy. Which, of course, means very little gets done outside (I note in passing that it is almost as cold here than where we stayed in Montana last July).
Frankly, it makes me grumpy.
I had a careful list all planned out for the weekend: raking leaves (yes, where I live this is the season in which the leaves fall), mowing (the grass, of course, has been responding to the "mock spring" we have been undergoing), and even some potential pre-Spring gardening activities. Instead, The grass is dripping, the leaves are soggy, and I have managed to miss another weekend for making any forward progress.
There is just nothing quite as annoying as planning for something which you do not really enjoy doing, psyching yourself up to do it, only to find that all that mental energy is wasted. Grrr. Makes me not want to plan and just be "spontaneous" (Fancy Latin word for 'procrastination').
I am taking today and Tuesday off for Spring Break. Perhaps the weather will co-operate with me enough to get some kind of effort put on these items. Or, if nothing else, at least I can mentally prepare myself and fortify myself with coffee for the continued drearies.
