Mother Nature – Get back on your meds


I understand that springtime and fall can bring about a wide variety of weird weather patterns.  Leaving Africa in August to arrive in Washington State.  Traveling to Seattle and then California with a friend in September, and eventually driving to Washington D.C. in October has had me confronting the most drastic weather patterns that I have encountered in my entire life.  I have been exposed to 89 degrees, clear down to 10 degrees.  I am seriously not sure how to feel about this.. except to say at this time I am seriously ready to go back to Africa!!!!

“When all is said and done, the weather and love are the two elements about which one can never be sure.”
― Alice Hoffman

Ahhh – comforting warmness

“SAUL: ‘We made love outdoors, my favorite place to make love, assuming the weather be fair and balmy, and the earth beneath be clean. Our souls intertwined and dripping with sweat.”
― Roman Payne

…. then rain….

“From where we stand the rain seems random. If we could stand somewhere else, we would see the order in it.”
― Tony Hillerman

But the sun returned.. with an enormous amount of cold.. but still the beautiful sun..

“Even after the stormiest weather, a true warrior will still reflect the brilliant rays of the magnificent sun through both his or her eyes. You may get hit by sudden lighting or take severe beatings from the cruel wind, but you will always get back up and stand strong on your feet again, soak in the sunlight, and be prepared to get hit by even the most merciless hail – time and time again.”
― Suzy Kassem

 

So yeah… then came the snow and the very, very cold.

Finally, after a torrential snow, sleet, rainstorm…I wake up today to this.

I’m going to just assume it’s cold out and stay inside and pretend that it is still summer.  I do love the seasons changing.. I just wish they would not visit every season in a one day period!!

“Pray don’t talk to me about the weather, Mr. Worthing. Whenever people talk to me about the weather, I always feel quite certain that they mean something else. And that makes me quite nervous.”
