From Blankets To Tank Tops

My mother was wearing long sleeves, winter pants and at least one jacket under the car blanket yesterday. I had the windows open a crack and was warm in a t-shirt and denim capris. A tricky time of year, late March, I mean April. If it snowed tomorrow I wouldn't be surprised but today it was 80.

A sunny, cool day at Devil's Lake

    1. Yes (giving you a cyber Elaine Benes shove), they are tiny humans and the female human looks as if she's posed like a miniature.

  2. Mother Nature is on the teeter-totter. You're in the 80s and I feel like we're seeing winter for the first time. :-)

  3. here in France it's the same. Last week it was hot, I went to the sea and I bathed. Yesterday it was cold like November with rain. but some leaders say there's no climate problem. Anyway your picture is very beautiful and no doubt that the walk should be pleasant. Devil was sleeping :-)

    1. I always think of France as having perfect weather but I think most of Europe has dealt and is dealing with some pretty weird weather this year. Oh yeah a pack of lying idiots, I mean how can anyone deny climate change, doesn't it make you want to scream?
      Thank you, K, I used to be quite a walker but I'm afraid now I'm closer to needing one.
      Ha, I think that Devil is sleeping for now, but he does rear his head and do evil there from time to time.

    1. Oh geez Bri, it's been 80ish for two days now and I'm already sick of the warm weather.

  5. This week was cold for me and it rained a lot, but starting with today is better weather expected!
    Be careful not to catch a cold!

    1. I suppose all those tulips need rain, Ella and they do okay in the cooler climate don't they? We must have traded weather cuz I'm here after 8 pm still feeling sticky and icky. Too late, I've had something for a few months (Dexter's grandma passed on her germs to me.) but my Dr. gave me meds today.

    2. What did you get from Dexter's grandma?

    3. Whaaaat, your English is fantastic, girlfriend. Notice I'm not speaking Dutch and even my Spanish is frightening. Dexter's "grandma" had the flu and this awful cough and when I brought her root beer popsicles I think she gave me the flu and this never ending cough. That was at about two months ago.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

    1. Crazy, it's so darn out of nowhere hot here. In my undies on the couch at 8:30 pm about to fetch a popsicle but refusing to turn on the AC until we have a spring dagnabit.

  7. Hi Jeanna, it gets like that here too, although minus the snow. I'd be like you Mother, under a blanket and wrapped up for winter... You can't be to careful.

    1. Ha, I used to keep the blanket in the car for the dogs, but now she gets the honors. I've been pretty warm every since this day so I guess we don't really get a spring.

  8. That sounds like Colorado weather (where our youngest son and DIL live) .... their weather is downright schitzophrenic ... they carry all kinds of coats and blankets in their car at all times for the layered look.

    1. I think of CO as snow for an hour then melting away in the sun. It's so dry out there I couldn't deal with it unless I lived on a spring or river. Ha, I bet they do cuz they have those mountains as well. Sounds like the trunk of my car.
