Mother Nature strikes again
Sunday, April 13, 2014
Yesterday (Saturday) was hazy and in the 70s. I fertilized the lawn and some of my next door neighbor's lawn. (They just moved in from an apartment in December and have no experience with yard work and no tools.) I pruned shrubs and racked up a lot of steps and exercise. LOVED IT!
However, a cold front brought in cooler temps and rain overnight, whch is now turning to snow as the temperature continues to drop. Obviously I can't get out in the yard today, unless I want to turn into a wet, cold mess, so I'm doing lots of laundry and housework. I'd much rather be out preparing my garden beds, but Mother Nature has other ideas. We can always use the moisture on the front range of Colorado, but I hate the way our rapidly shifting weather teases. The coming week is predicted to have more precipitation mid-week and cooler temps, so my gardening will have to wait for Easter weekend. Any decent weather to be outside will pretty much occur while I'm at work.
I did do 15 minutes of cardio dancing, freaking out my pets, as usual, and now I should put towels in the drier and get the sheets in the washer. Then I need to get at my cooking for the next few days for the Fast Metabolism diet. I may need to run to the store for ingredients and the snow is supposed to get stronger in the afternnon, so I'd better get moving if I expect to get everything done.
I wish everyone a happy and healthy day!
