Crazy Weather.........

Today we decided to go to our arena and rope. We loaded up around 1 and I had to come back inside and change into a t-shirt. It was that warm! It got around 77+ degrees today. Isn't this December?!?!? Any way took "Roo", "Willis" & "Pedro" and got in some practice. Had a great time and found a few things I need to work with Willis on. After we roped we rode around the place and then headed back home. Savannah has a art class after school on Thursdays, so we needed to go and pick her up. Taylor was at the Ag Barn clipping his goat for his upcoming show on Saturday, so we decided to ride out there and see if he needed any help. We helped him finish his goat and helped another girl there with hers. She was alittle nervous as she had never clipped a goat before. All in all a great day! The weather is supposed to be unseasonably warm again tomorrow and then rain and cold coming back in late Saturday and Sunday.

I said the same thing to my husband, "Isn't it December? What's with this weather?" and he replied, "Nope dear, it's not December......it's January" He's so sweet. LOL!!

It was super warm here too, I opened up all the windows and let some fresh air come inside. The kids played outside all day. It was a perfect day to ride, but I am a rider slacker and didn't ride. :)

Glad you had a good day!!!

So sorry to hear about your uncle. These times are hard and I know what you mean about it bringing up all kinds of memories.

Wonderful picture of you and your little sweetie! Have a wondeful weekend! xoxo

Kansas was a balmy 60 degrees. We were outside most of the day hoping the warm sun would kill the green funk we've all had! Quite frankly, I love 60 in January!

Oh how 77 degrees would feel really good right now! It was 12 degrees when I went out to do chores but at least the wind is not blowing!

77 degrees?!?!? Hmph...I'm only going to get 37 degrees today! But at least it's sunny and the wind quit blowin'!

That sounded like the perfect day!

What an awesome day! As Broken Y stated we WERE warm. Nice cold front came thru tonite and brought 40-50 mph wind with it. Not my idea of nice!

LOL, December, girl, January and headed fast to February! What I wouldn't give for the warmth, though, by Tuesday this week we'll be lucky to hit a high of 0*F, Yikes!
