Girls Write Out
Wednesday, February 13, 2008

This is my clan in Santa Cruz this weekend.

Yesterday, it was 75 degrees. Life just changes for me when it's sunny. That's why I can't live anywhere else. I am a happy person in the sunshine. I took my doggy to the park, and she's kind of embarrassing. She is so excited to see people she sprinkles whenever anyone wants to pet her. Which amounts to everyone because she IS the world's cutest dog.

I had big plans yesterday! I was going to clean the house, finish the laundry, send off the first three chapters of my new book. But it was sunny. And my fish are dying. So here is all I got done:
I took the dog for a walk.
I vacuumed and mopped the floors.
I created an artichoke omelet and had lunch in the sun.
I read a little bit on the deck with my sunglasses in a comfy chair.
I got my fish antibiotics (they're doing well by the way.)

And today? I'm craving more sunshine so I can be unproductive again. The first spring-like days are the best. I remember tanning at the dorms in college at this time and life is so much better now where I can sit in the sun with my doggy and instead of cutting class, I'm cutting housework. That is much more satisfying somehow.

I'm with you on the cutting housework thing! Had to drive through fog to get to the kids school today, and it was all sunshiny when we got there and I started making all kinds of plans to do frivolous things. But then I got home and it's foggy again so I'm sitting her blogging instead. sigh, lol...

have a fun day :)

It's foggy here today too. I'm hoping it burns off early!

I hear you, Kristin! It's been so rainy for a long time here and I'm missing the sun. The last few days have been gorgeous but I've had no time for the beach. Today I might actually have time but it sounds like it's raining again. *sigh*

I'm at least hoping it's nice this weekend, a friend invited me to go on a boat. I need my tan back...

My dad used to say, "I'm tryin' hard to like you."

THAT is how I feel right now. Stuck in Ohio, in the snow and ice. My daughter's had two snow days this week, one because of sub-zero temps, and today because of snow. You really shouldn't rub all that sunshine in our faces, you know. It's just not fair!!

Save some rays for us...come June or July or so. :-)

I love the sun, too! And strangely enough, here in Kansas, we have more sunny days per year than Southern California, BUT, some of those sunny days only get up to 25 degrees...I'm longing for warm spring days...

Hey, sounds like a page out of my central Florida life last week. Isn't "spring" great!

It's 74 here with a high of 81, but a low in the 40s.

I love those early spring days. They are so beautiful!

The pic of the kids is great! Have a great relaxing day, Kris.

I think it's like 20 degrees out here today.

But it IS sunny.

Does that count? LOL

Okay, for any of you jealous, I will send you my TAX bill and you'll go right back to loving me. I WISH I could live somewhere I could afford!

I live in Florida now, and I miss having seasons. I always enjoyed the early Spring days, too, but there really isn't much difference here; oh, except for the arrival of lovebugs.

There are lots of sunny places! I crave one for myself. That's the bad thing about Indiana--gray days. though we've had some sunshine this winter. It's 23 out there today.

At 4:41 PM, Blogger Kayla said...

It snowed on Monday and yesterday. It's flurrying again, and it'll be in the 20s when I go to school tomorrow. I envy your sunshine!

I have the sun here in Texas, but could use the rain. (sigh.)

At 8:16 PM, Blogger Diann Hunt said...

I'm with you, K, I love the sunshine! I even heard birds singing today! Okay, maybe they were squawking. No, they were downright complaining. They're ready for spring, too. :-)

What's that song...? I'm walking in sunshine ...

It's sunny here in TX but the wind is fierce. Tomorrow rain and cold, cold, cold.

Dreamin' of Hawaii.

When I want a sunny day, everyone here likes to remind me "Denver has the most sunny days of anywhere else in the US!"

I didn't stay in California long enough last weekend. I want more time there.

Today was gorgeous and in the 60s here in Denver. Of course we had snow yesterday and will have it again tomorrow...
