Stupid Weather

Being a 'project' kind of guy, I currently have several going that I would love to complete. The crossbow I made is nearly done. It just needs to be stained and sealed and given its final assembly. But to do the staining I need a warm day without rain or snow. Instead I get......

I have also made really nice progress on a custom,  mirrored medicine chest for the bathroom we are slowly updating. But now I need the right conditions to do some painting of the frame section and instead I am faced with......

Rosa and I also have a joint project to recover a large futon cushion on our enclosed but non-insulated porch. We'd love to get started on it, but........

I had made some great progress cleaning up the yard for a few big moves I have in mind for the garden. I had a few warm days in there but I need a couple more to get things finished. However.......

Like Lucy, I'm antsy, and grumpy, and irritable, and if the weather isn't going to cooperate I can only think of one possible thing that could change my mood:

  1. Hi KD,
    We also are having stupid weather..but in the opposite direction. Usually we can rely on a constant temperature in the mid to late 30'sC but it has been bouncing around from 22C to 41C in a weekly cycle; most disconcerting. However I prefer our weather to yours.

    1. Weather patterns are disconcerting everywhere it seems. However, Rosa and I were watching an animal documentary on deadly beasties in your part of the world and despite this spate of icky weather, I think we're glad we are in NJ! ;-)

  2. Real snowny day here and guess where my lady is taking out her frustration.

    1. Hmmm. Well, Joe, it must have been something in the air......Rosa also decided on a lengthy spanking for me last night......and we only had a little snow!

  3. Foggy mornings and warm afternoons here. I even wore shorts!
