lists of 5: 5 signs that it is, undoubtably, winter.

1. I have nothing to wear. No. Thing.

2. The cats have doubled in size and the Ginger, who usually sleeps in really obscure places, has moved to her winter abode - our bed. (The Black is a stoically perennial resident.)

3. Everytime I leave the house I see any number of fender-benders. How quickly morons people forget how to drive on wet roads...

4. Our lemon tree is about 30 seconds away from busting out in fruit and showering us and the neighbours with lemons faster than any of us could possibly use them. Their big yellow globes are particularly fetching against a brooding stormy sky however.


5. Underfloor Heating has just moved up my Must Have list. A couple of months ago it was item about 435, it currently occupies slot no. 2, after New Winter Wardrobe.

Molly: It's so amusing to me that it is winter there yet here is 30 degrees and summer. My brain has a hard time computing this. Though it undoubtedly understands south/north difference. Shall ponder the existentialism of this....

Julie ~ those lemons are almost a post unto their own. And might just be at some point...

Veg ~ I feel a bit bad even vaguely bitching about our winter when it's so mild in comparison to all you Northern Hem's, but maybe it's because we're so unused to (and unprepared for) cold weather that it really, really sucks ...

Oh no, do not feel bad for bitching. Winter in any form sucks. I also feel bad for bitching about nice weather here since we so rarely get real stretches of it, but sheesh, it is only June 3rd and already 30 degrees, which is late August weather for us. I mean it could be raining, but a little cooler would be fine with me. I am a middle of the road girl, not too hot and not too cold.

Okay I'll shut up about our relentless rain here in Pennsylvania. At least it's not cold.
