The temperature yesterday hit 70 degrees here. I would have jumped for joy until I realized that it was 70 degrees like 3 weeks ago – this is the craziest winter ever and it was like 8 degrees four days ago. Ruby, my trustworthy companion is getting old, I’m giving her joint medication now – whenever we stop walking, she wants to lie down and eat grass. I totally understand. When I reach her age, I hope I’m lucky enough to lie in the sun and have people come up to me and say hello.
It’s so strange to walk in summer weather and see withered trees.
