It was supposed to be in the '70s yesterday and the '80s today. It is currently somewhere in the low '60s. Which wouldn't be so bad, except that it is also raining. Just like yesterday. Seriously, both days, I'm thinking I should head downtown and run a couple of errands and enjoy the weekend. I plan my timing to miss a) the Memorial Day Parade yesterday, and b) Bike the Drive today. And both days, the minute I think it's time to get ready to go out, I hear the patter of little raindrops.

If he doesn't come through with tomorrow's promised 90ยบ and sunny, he's fired.

However, I am taking advantage of this to get a lot of stuff done around here. In the process of switching out the summer and winter clothes (between the bedroom closet and the hall storage closet), I have piled up a ton of things that I don't wear or that don't fit and have accumulated about four bags (so far) of clothes and other items to take to the Brown Elephant Resale shop. (I haven't taken them up there, though, since there are Cubs games every day and that always screws up traffic and parking in the area.)

Before the weather turned to complete shit yesterday, I went over to the library to pick up a book ("The Hare with Amber Eyes", which was recommended on Bookcrossing. I'm think I'll spend the dreary afternoon finishing up my current read (Arthur Phillip's The Tragedy of Arthur by William Shakespeare, and start the new one. I also went by the farmers' market. Not much variety yet, though you could have fed an entire town on all the asparagus available!

NOTE: this is my first attempt at posting to Dreamwidth with a cross-post to LJ. Hope it works! (I've imported all my LJ to Dreamwidth, too.) Which reminds me. I have three invite codes to Dreamwidth. If anyone wants one, drop a comment!)

LOL! Weather gurus are the same the world over, even here, where our weather is so stable compared to other parts of the world.

I've had the same task in changing over wardrobes over the last couple of weeks, though not nearly so dramatic as yours! Out with the jeans and sweat pants which are winter wear here, and digging out the light cottons which I actually could wear in winter about 50% of days (daytime only too chilly at night), but I like to put away so that I can enjoy the change!

If I need an invite code to join Dreamwidth, then yes please, I am holding up my hand here! I have been meaning to back up my LJ as there are some posts from some years back I definitely don't want to lose!

The sun is out this morning, and it feels like it's going to be warm, so I think I'll let him keep his job for awhile.

Here's the DW code you'll need: ABVC2G2VS2CA6AAAN93X
