May Gray


Such is spring in Southern California. The sun doesn't shine until about 2 pm most days. It's awful. It's kind of chilly, too. I hate it. I really do. In a couple of weeks it will give way to June Gloom.

Nice...

Anyway, it really makes me feel sluggish and unmotivated. It feels like it's early morning all day.

This weekend I need to feel energized and motivated. I want to clean the patio room and prepare it for a new paint job. Michael helped me empty the room of most of its contents last night, so it will be easier to vacuum and mop the floors. The dogs have really been naughty out there lately. They have bad manners sometimes. Grr...

And my roses need to be deadheaded. They have put on quite a show in the last month. I'll try to get some pictures when the sun comes out and share their loveliness with you in another post.

Lastly, today is my sister's birthday. Happy birthday, Julie!

Have a good weekend everybody!

    Happy Birthday Julie!

    I thought it was always sunny in California! I would have to agree that being grey until 2pm would be rough.

    Sounds like everyone is getting things done around the house today.

    Enjoy the weekend.

    Happy birthday to your sis!

    I hope that sun makes an appearance soon for you. The grey bums me out too. Not a fan.

    Come on up north girl!! Our fog lifted yesterday and we've got 70's to 80's for the next week! If you can't come up, I'll try to send it your way. :)

    Looks like outside my window too, just minus the palm trees.

    We're about 32F right now and it is cold BRRRR. This is our long weekend and pretty typical.

    I was really hoping to plant my garden this weekend but sigh it is raining too LOL.

    Glad you are back, I was getting worried!
    Happy Birthday Julie!
    Those trees look nice but I can't imagine no sun.
    Gardening is wonderful isn't it?!

    I hear ya- I finally got motivated to clean up the sun porch last week. But it was worth it because Miya loves sitting out there on the wicker rocker with a book- too cute! p.s. and the cat has been very naughty out there too!

    I'd give anything for CA springtime grey. It beats the heck out of triple digit Phoenix temps any day! Wish Julie a belated happy birthday from me :-)

    Michelle,

    Good to hear from you! Congratulations on your pregnancy! It will be so much fun for you to have a sweet little guy in the family!

    We miss you @ CV!

    Happy Bday to your sister Julie...

    Sorry the skies aren't bringing any sunshine these days... hope it comes out and stays out for you soon (I personally love an overcast day, but I'm weird that way!)

    I would never have guessed that May was Gray in Southern California . . . thanks for sharing. Mali & I plan to visit the West Coast someday, I hope within the next year or two. I feel like there are so many places we haven't seen yet.

    Happy Birthday, Julie!

    When I don't see the sun I always feel so blah and slugish!

    I used to live up North and know exactly what you mean! I feel terrible when the sun doesn't shine, maybe it is the SW girl in me :)

    Somehow it is very easy for me to imagine that you had the most beautiful roses! I wish that you would have posted a picture. I wish I knew the trick because I just can't seem to have nice roses :D
