For the first time in a while it's not going to be HOT today. Climate seems to consist of cold winters, a few weeks or week or mild spring, then HOT summers. Last year I made the mistake of driving into the heat.
Each time I moved it was down in elevation which means temperatures stayed up. Brilliant planning on my part, yes?
This year my goal is to manage stay in the higher places longer - we will see! So far what I plan and what actually seems to happen rarely sync up.
I wanted to share how cool the clouds were here when it rains. But it's raining so I'll have to go with last years example. I have a friend here who is from Montana - the pretty side - who says our Big Sky's are bigger and better. Sounds like something they would say in Texas.
This is the kind of weather where I really miss my old home. I miss having a house that doesn't shake and bounce and leak...though so far so good on that one!
I miss not having a fireplace, an oven that is bigger than a piece of toast, and the sense that you are safe from the elements, not living almost in them. Then again, I have it much better than the sheep outside my door who are visiting. They are wool sheep and we all know what happens when wool gets wet!
But it is beautiful isn't it! I am one of those people who NEEDS the sun. The joke in our family is if we lived in Seattle we'd all be under the covers, zoned out on Prozac.
But this last year has been bad...and I mean BAD....for drought, dust, and all the issues that go with it. Rain is better than gold.
The rain is a welcome sight and sound today and every day. Then, eventually, we'll all be complaining about having too much rain. Okay, so I won't hold my breath on that one!
Welcome to my Journey!
I'm inviting you to join me on my journey as I seek to find a new way of being in an old set of systems. It's hard, but worth it!
