Brrr and Anyhoo

Per my usual weekend routine: Saturday, I grabbed my coffee, computer and E Reader and headed out for the porch in my sundress. Now the majority of the female readership are probably thinking sundress? Instead of cutoffs or shorts? It's the weekend for goodness sake. You were at home. Why a dress? Well, it was Saturday. Saturday is laundry day and pickings were slim. And its a very comfortable dress. But anyhoo. I sat out there about ten minutes before I hied myself back in and put on long pants and a long-sleeved shirt. It was sixty degrees out there! First chilly day we've had since...well just let me say its been a good long while. I stayed out about an hour. The air was crisp and the breeze caused the rustling leaves to sound like rain.
Being more intrepid, Belle chose to stay out after I gave up and headed for the house and warmth.



A little aside here: I googled anyhoo to make sure I had the right spelling. This is the urbandictionary.com definition of anyhoo: 'Used by many people, usually mentally retarded, as a means of saying anywho or anyhow.'  Hmm.......

  1. Yup, sitting in the early morning quiet in the sun room is almost over. Deep sigh, forlorn look. Anyhoo, a sherpa-lined hoodie, the space heater, and a hot, cup of tea help.

  5. Anywhoooo... I always spell it like I say it, with a bunch of ooooos! :)

    Don't care for the ninety degree weather we had last week, but the drop into the sixties wasn't any better. I want that stuff inbetween!

  6. I'm with you, Pat. If it would hit 70 and stay there, I'd be perfectly content:)

  7. Hey Jennifer, how are you?
    Seems to be alot of renditions of anyhoo/hew doesn't there?

    It just seems wrong to be wearing jeans instead of shorts this early in the season.

  14. Hey Rhobin, The Shardai pic? Looked a lot like my Chuckie boy.
    I bet it is cold where you're at.
