winter coats and hot coffee when it is 93 degrees...

OK, it isn't 93 NOW, this second,  but having the hot porridge for breakfast with the hot coffee has me sweating here...the majority of American households have AC, right?  Not us! It is usually colder than a well digger's azz here in upstate NY, and last week we were wearing heavy jackets to walk the dog in the early morning 50 degree cool.  But now?  It is very August-like, 80s, 90s, which my southern friends probably consider NICE.
My new winter parka arrived yesterday.  Don't think I am GREEDY, I donated a coat or 2 to make way for this thing....anyway, at that point the thermometer read 93, and I zipped that parka on, hood and all, lickity split out of excitement and to be certain the fit was good, which it was.
It is s'posed to snow next week, so it arrived just in time.....

More flowers on celadon pieces, mmmmmmm, mmmm good :)

Keep those flowers coming, perhaps they will keep that snow at bay!

Our humidity finally left today and it's almost light sweater weather. What? Crazy!

I can't believe you're heading into snow again already. Where did the time go? It seems like only recently that you were showing us the deep snow pics and then the snow melting. Lori, are you quoting Jon Snow by any chance?
