Yesterday I heard from an old local farmer that the last Friday of the month is a good predictor of the next month’s weather.
The last Friday of August it was about 100 degrees, hot, dry and windy on the prairie.
Today on the North Dakota prairie, it is gray, cloudy, cold…as in 48 degrees and raining. So much for the old farmer’s idea.
My toes are cold. I am wearing slippers and a wool sweater. The furnace is running.
And I am thinking about my to do list of what I need to get done before the snow flies…
Empty and clean out the garden.
Make salsa and tomato sauce.
Clean out closets.
Dig out snow pants, gloves, hats, boots and jackets and buy whatever it is that the kids need that I don’t already have stocked piled away.
The list goes on and on. But a few other things we need to do plenty of before the snow flies includes…
just what the girls and I have done this week when it isn’t raining.
Such as loving the sunshine,
running and playing in the yard,
kicking around balls,
and enjoying the green grass when and while we have it…and doing it all
What are you going to do before the snow flies?
Oh, you don’t have snow?
You don’t live on the prairie?
Well I am sure the above picture makes you want to relocate here right…before the snow flies.
