Time Flies

It's hard to believe that Memorial Day weekend is already approaching. Not that I have plans to go away or anything like that, just that it's generally considered the unofficial beginning of summer, and it's at around this point each year that I think to myself, wait, where did spring go? I don't want it to be summer yet...

This year we had an up and down spring, with a couple of bursts of very warm weather mixed with more typical cool, wet stretches. It can be tough to figure out what to wear, and on days when the temperature can fluctuate by 30 degrees or more, I frequently end up carrying a jacket that conditions have become too warm to wear. I wish I was one of the people who can tolerate temperatures well enough to keep his jacket on no matter what, but it just ain't happening.

Being a person who dislikes heat and humidity, I kind of dread the point in the year when the onset of summer becomes inescapable. Last year I was forced to put in our air conditioners on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend, but thankfully it's not going to be that warm here yet. Remember a few years back when it didn't get hot until the middle of July? Yeah, I was the person who was happy about that.

The weather, and our trip to California, also led me to pull some shorts and other warm-weather clothing from storage before getting around to putting away my cold-weather clothing. Conditions in our bedroom and closet are haphazard, to say the least. A project for this week, I guess.
