  5. In years gone by, we wouldn’t have hesitated heading out. We make better choices as we get older 😊

  6. That is CRAZY!! As much as I pine for New England now and again, I do not miss that sort of nonsense in May. How goes the dog search?

  7. Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:
    Wow!!! Brrr … “a blast of arctic air and snow is headed for the Northeast this weekend. The cold snap will interrupt a spell of spring weather that had been something of a salve and had driven people out of their homes to golf courses and parks.”


  8. Love that peeking out from beneath the covers look! It’s a beautiful sunny day here — there are predictions of snow here for tomorrow! I mean, really?

    but, I will take the sun. It is so inviting. And, there’s no wind. I’m off to the park with Beaumont — Sheepadoodles are a wonderfully goofy and loyal breed. Beau makes our hearts smile every single day. He’s also incredibly smart! Oh. did I mention stubborn? yeah well. that too. 🙂

    Have a joyfully warm weekend… inside.

  9. I, for one, am glad it is too cold for you to be tempted to go out there…nine days in a row of running deserves a break, yanno? Cuccooning – I know, we’ve been at it for more than long enough – but sometimes it’s just nice. No work to do, snuggle with a loved one on the couch and watch movies…
    It’s sunny and bloody cold here, too (so glad it is not a running day) and they are calling for flurries this afternoon. Enough already!

  10. That’s terrible for May weather! It will pass though. Good to hear that you’re having thoughts of another dog, however clandestine the search may be at this point.

    …and if we spend more time in quarantine, a dog would be your chance to get out…
    My yard has just become home to a ground hog! Back to The Wind In The Willows and The Hollow Tree and Deep Woods (Albert Bigelow Paine), my favorite, and of course Mr. Rat who ventured to Connecticut!

    My prediction was correct…for you, you had too coldof weather and didn’t get to see the geese family (sorry you didn’t get to see the Geese family) and
    wrong for myself…yesterday it was 83! ugh frost the day before and then heat wave…I like the temp to be between 55 and 72…82 is my upper limit…I start to get cranky when it approaches 82 (our daughter has Heat Intolerance too) her temp set point is even lower than mine!…suppose to cool down and rain for us starting tomorrow 🙂 Since you are Grandpa mode with puppy sitting that means Rachel has gotten out of the NYC Zone, yeah!

    You have seen the movie “Father Goose” ? one of my favorites I swoon over Carey Grant…

    “Will it be too cold to go visit the geese over the weekend…Dear Hubby said the Northeast is suppose to have a May Snow!!! A rare Polar Vortex… We had frost again this morning and tomorrow in low 80’s, hmm we’ll see about it being in the low 80’s here tomorrow, I am doubtful…”

    Yeah, I was hoping you’d go out later in the day or early evening to watch the geese family.
    Yes, 83 yesterday with frost the morning before…the normal temps and rain are returning!
    You should check out the movie “Father Goose” and have you seen this movie :
    Fly Away Home, I so recommend the movie…starting so many beautiful Geese and well known actors…

  14. We’ve just had a heatwave on the UK’s sunshine coast. It has finally broken today (May 10), with high winds, cooler air, and the odd spot of rain, but I actually have a suntan and all my plants are about a month ahead of usual. At the moment I have many plants in flower, including roses, flag irises, peonies, and geraniums! Also have quite a number of promising looking vegetable seedlings. Now all I need is a sudden frost. My dog has been doing loads of sunbathing, in between supervising my gardening efforts! Not much writing getting done by me, though.


  15. A friend recently framed these recurring cold dips as repeatedly getting to experience the joy of the onset of spring. What do you think? ;]
