small stones – May 16, 2016

another night of bitter chill
checking and rechecking
the calendar – is this mid-May?
I really don’t want to complain
for the heat will come soon
and I will beg for the chill
but right now, my toes
just want some warmth

    It’s going to be 85 here today, will send some warmth your way.

    I agree. Normally by now, we’ve definitely removed a quilt from the bed, and are often running the air. Nope, not yet. This morning has me turning on the space heater and wearing fleece!

      It’s just ridiculous! I have two pairs of socks on and a blanket over my feet and they are still a chunk of ice. We’d already packed away the space heaters and are just trying to brave our way through this cold snap without dragging them out again or firing up the wood stove. I hope it ends soon!

        I remember three very warm days in April. How we mowed the grass, uncovered the garden, picked up sticks…Sat on the porch after, sweaty and sticky…We must have scared them off!

      • Lori Carlson says:

        *laughs* yeah, we had a few of those days too. Dad was even going to start the garden this past weekend. Glad now he didn’t.

      • joey says:

        I started mine, but I do think it’s stunted. I’m going to replant a few things, but just this morning, I’ve considered buying some tomato plants, else I won’t even have tomatoes in June…

      • Lori Carlson says:

        Yeah, Dad is going to buy plants this year instead of doing them from seeds. Hopefully we will yield some veggies in June.. but not if we never get any of them in the ground.. lol Good luck with yours, Joey. Hopefully you won’t have too many stunted ones.

        Thanks 🙂

  3. Totally agree with you on this one. I’ll like a little more warmth in the northeast. 😊

    • Lori Carlson says:

      Ah, so it is cold up there too.. I am in VA.. really want this warm weather to get here and stay.. then I can complain about summer *laughs* Hope you get some warmth soon!

  4. I think we have everybody’s warmth here in Scotland (for a change) we have had the most glorious May over the past 10 days or so. Sorry Blessings Joy
