WHERE GOOD INTENTIONS GO

Believe it or not, I enjoy Oregon weather.  



In Maui, it is 95% sunny and warm so I couldn't blame a blah mood on the weather.  I couldn't use the excuse that the weather was so nasty I changed my mind about going out to lunch with you.  Oooops!  Can't do that yard work because of the weather.



Living in the land of 8 months of rain, occasional snow and black ice makes for a whole different scenario!  Remember that Weight Watcher meeting last week around noon?  SUNSHINE and 60, so I went with Kate and Deacon to fun (and beautiful) park on the other side of town.  Cheese, grapes, crackers and juice for Mr. 3, iced coffees for the ladies.  Because in Oregon, sunny days with schedules in alignment means head outdoors!

Are you busy working on taxes to get them in by April instead of October?  Oh wait!  Temps in the low 60's and no rain!  Take the Dad to his community garden plot and play with the boys outside all day.

I have so many good intentions!  Finish organizing the kitchen cabinets.  Organize my bedroom baskets.  Do the ironing.  Go to Walmart to get the best buy on non-perishables.

I think my good intentions meet up with the socks in the washing machine ...

  1. What a weather transition you've had to get used to. I'm glad you don't mind it. I would. I'm not fond of rain, especially driving in it. But I do like the idea of scraping a project because the sun is shining. Very cool.

    1. The colder and wetter weather has NOT been good for my right knee. Hoping to get that replaced in September. And I don't like driving at night, and not at all on a rainy night!

  2. My second oldest grand daughter lives in Portland and she loves it!!! We couldn't entice her back here to live, even if we tried---and we have. She says it's too "flat" here in Michigan.

    1. And you guys get a lot more COLD than Portland. The grey gets me down sometimes but just when I think I can't take it ... we have a few days of sunshine!
