Seasonal Observations

Indy made a trip to the groomer's on Saturday. Not only has he been overdue for a haircut for quite a while, but our temperatures have soared to over 80 degrees for several days. Wearing a winter coat in summer weather is never a good idea.

The warm temperatures have the landscape bursting with color. We've waited so long for spring that it's hard to stay inside.

Unfortunately that reminds me it's past time to do my own seasonal switch. All the winter clothes must go to the basement closet. A few other items will go into a donation bag. If I haven't worn it all's time to say good-bye!

Then out come the short sleeves, capris, and light jackets. I'll be holding my breath for the moment of truth.

After a winter of slothfulness, will all those lovely spring/summer clothes still fit?

Very dapper doggy! And thanks for the reminder about closets!

BECKY said...

Hi Pat! Oh, I already know that my spring/summer clothes DO NOT fit the way I want!! I actually did pretty well all winter, until I was sick for almost 3 weeks! All I wanted to do was eat, sleep and watch TV....sounds like the perfect formula for weight gain...and worked! :(

Judy said...

A fine fellow here! Lady is also due for a spa-day soon.

Has Indy been dusting your mantle lately?

Bandit's Pack said...

He must have loved his day of beautifying because he looks quite pleased with his results.

Lynn said...

Nice doggy hairdo! Ugh, don't even want to think clothes for warm weather - love the weather, but not that part :-)

Oh, isn't it wonderful when it's time to bare arms and legs again. Well, wonderful if you've been a good girl all winter and kept up with exercise!

We are still having a few flashbacks to winter here, so Grammy's not put up the sweatshirts yet! We, of course, are starting to shed our undercoat! Tribbles and dustbunnies ALL OVER THE PLACE! The Country Corgis

Our temps hit the 80's last week and my Golden was panting almost constantly. He still wanted to play fetch, but we had to take it easy on him. He's actually happy to see the cooler weather this week!
