Tuesday in the Swamp

Muggy day, temperatures rising, heading towards ninety.  Can't believe we'll be flying off to where the highs will be in the 30's and 40's.  Had to dig out winter clothes to pack.  Ordered myself a rain poncho as I don't really have any rain/snow gear.  Extra shoes, extra jeans.
And then we got to thinking about driving in bad weather and we upgraded our rental car to a SUV.  We usually rent the smallest car we can get away with, but decided something heftier might be in order.
We have a beautiful cabin rented, we're bringing things to do while it snows and hopefully we'll have some decent weather too.  I'm bringing a teeny, tiny cross-stitch and yarn to crochet some veggies that I saw on Gillian's blog Tales From a Happy House .
This is the book the veggies are in, I ordered a copy for my Kindle.
You don't usually expect snow in mid-May no matter where you're going, but we'll have a good time regardless of the weather.


  1. Have a good trip remember hats and mittens:)

  2. We have mid-80s, can't imagine being plunged back into cold weather again. I hope you have a good enough time to make up for it! '-)

  3. Looking forward to hearing about your travels. Snow will be a big change for you. An SUV sounds like a good idea :). B x

  4. Love the crochet, so cute! Yes, an SUV is definitely a wise choice. We are getting snow today in the foothills here in WA state.....Safe travels. Karen xx

  5. We have here in 60s, in the weekend it will in 90s.. what a crazy weather... love those cute crochet..

  6. 90 here this weekend.
    where are you going.
    Alaska ?

    cheers, parsnip

    1. No, Montana to visit the northern end of Yellowstone.

  7. I'm sure snow will be a bit of welcome relief for you after the temperatures you've been having at home. Have a lovely time.

  8. All this talk about heat makes me jealous.... it is May and pouring with cold rain. May is usually a very pleasant month for us. Hope you have a wonderful time.

  9. Sounds like the upgraded car will be more suitable for the place and climate you've described wherever it is. A holiday in a cabin and then getting out-and-about in the area will be good. Have a lovely trip!

  10. Have a wonderful trip ... looking forward to seeing and hearing more!
    Safe travels

    All the best Jan

  11. Gosh, you'll be going from hot to cold, stay warm and enjoy your trip:)

  12. Soak it up snd bring some home, the cold that is! Minnesota is a shock after 90s for me, too, especially an outdoor baseball game last night. Enjoy!

  13. Have a nice trip and enjoy the break from the heat and humidity!


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
