Sunny, cool, and rather lovely outdoors in my shirtsleeves at 7am.  If I hadn't been so pissed off with a noisy neighbour I could have really enjoyed it.

It's trying very hard to be a nice sunny spring morning up here...
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to
skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - open throttle in the other -
body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming : "Woo Hoo, what
a ride!"

I was quite surprised myself.  It probably won't last ;-)  Either the surprise or the pleasant weather.

For Gawd's sake send me some sun!  We got drizzle again.

I got my novel back yesterday from my editor and everything is looking good.  So that makes up for the lack of sun.  I have to submit this year.  I now have a self made deadline. Now or never.

We have collared doves courting in the garden and cooing like gooduns on the rooftop.  Traditionally birds start chasing each other around the hedges and chimneys on Valentine's day, but I think the weather discouraged them until today.  Winter hasn't finished with us yet, but today is a reminder to 'keep the faith'.

Hey Gyppo

I just realised all those posts over the last goodness knows when.  I used to be the person with the most posts. It must rain a lot where you live to keep you on that computer all day.  LOL.

I'm in deep trouble - no exercise, too much sitting down and now I have to take blood pressure pills.  So today I went back to the caravan and asked guy who stores it for us to let me in to have access to my Nordic walking poles.  I'm just not motivated these days, but if I want to live longer this is what I have to do I suppose.

Glad you enjoy your time on MWC.  I am meeting four members next week in Yorkshire.5th March.   I wish you could come up - you can if you wish.  We are reviewing our work over the week end as well as some time at the pub and walking the moors.  Should be good.  Everyone is welcome.  More info upon request.  PS I got 18 collared doves.

Yesterday our weather was again all mixed up. It reached into the 80s again for the second or third day in a row. Had to turn a fan on, resisted the impulse to resort to the A/C.

And guess what . . . they are forecasting another cool from later next week.

I'm ready for March, even if it does come in like a Lion.  8)  At least (hopefully) the yo yo temps. might even out.

Dark now (8-14 pm, but grey and miserable all day.  I was waiting for it to get in and rain, but it never did.

Sill cloudy, not a star in sight.

80F and sunny ... not a cloud in the sky.

Of course, that's just here in south Florida where I'm staying. At home there's supposed to be 8 more inches (20.32cm) of snow by tomorrow.
