All Mixed Up

Weather is a great metaphor for life — sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad, and there’s nothing much you can do about it but carry an umbrella or choose to dance in the rain! ~Terri Guillemets,

The weather has me all mixed up. Meteorology speaking it is winter, and spring is right around the corner, but somebody better tell the weather that!

One day the temperature reaches 60 degrees then dips to 30 the next morning. I don’t know how to dress. Will a sweater be too hot? Maybe I should dress in layers. Clothes are everywhere in my bedroom because I am afraid to put away the winter clothes, but I am starting to pull out some cooler weather wear. The comforter goes on, the comforter comes off, the socks go on the socks come off. It is the dance that goes on all night long.

Is it going to rain or maybe snow? My knees and hands can tell you so. I don’t have to watch the nightly news to know that I need to break out the anti-inflammatories. The next day my sinuses and dizzy feeling in my head let me know that the barometric pressure is on the move. I carry a virtual medicine cabinet everyday so that I am prepared for whatever Mother Nature has in store for me.

I can’t wait for the weather to make up its mind. Let it be Spring already. Then I can pack up my winter clothes and break out the allergy meds!

  1. I agree, Rita. Our forsythia bushes are just starting to bloom in our backyard, and then I see snow—snow?!—in the forecast for Friday? Yes, perhaps the weather is a metaphor for life, with its unexpected ups and downs, especially this year. Here’s to spring… 🙂
