Thinking Out Loud


I know we are all talking about the weather, as if there is anything we do about it.


If only we could accept it as each day comes and goes. Wouldn't that be something?


I think we notice the weather more this time of year than any other, 


at least for us living in the Northern Hemisphere.  Spring is special and has magical powers.


One just has to look around and see 'life' everywhere.....in the garden of course and beyond.


Here on the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia cyclists appear 
and whiz by doing the loop along the shore and back to the city.


Also the 'runners'/joggers  seem to follow and as well the surfers come out
of the woodwork and head to the beach.....a lot more than in the winter.


Plus we are back walking the beach once again. 
It is just too cold to handle in the depths of winter.


So yes, I am talking about the weather and how it affects
us all during seasonal transitions.


And I must say that my favourite is spring.

  1. My favourite season is spring, too. And I think we've been talking about it a lot because it has taken so long to truly arrive. It's a very exciting time of year with all the new 'life' it brings with it.

  2. Hi Jim,
    I also love Spring with her optimistic smile and little lime green leaves everywhere. Very happy 'me' returns in full flow, bring it on!

    1. Good to have you back in 'full flow', Ivan!! Yes! I too love those new and tender pale green leaves as they burst forth in spring and paint the surroundings a beautiful peaceful colour.
      Bring it on indeed!

  3. Sometimes the weather is the only thing to talk about.
    We are greening up quite well now.

    1. OK, I'll give you that, Sharon. The weather can and does affect us all in different ways.
      Must be nice to be basking in all the green and warmth!! Lucky you!

  5. I agree we all talk too much about the weather-I know I tend to. I love spring the best too, and then my next favorite is early autumn

    1. I know Kathy. If we didn't have the weather to 'let off steam'....can you imagine?!

  6. Hi Jim! We're smack dab in the middle of winter again ~ but I'm standing by what I've said before. My favorite season is every season, and each one is special because of its contrast with the others. My husband HATES winter and has been seriously complaining. He's been driving an hour a day for the past few days over icy, treacherous roads ~ so I'm cutting him a little slack. After all, I don't have to worry about that any more! This morning our area is gorgeous in its sun-sparkled blanket of snow. Have a good one!

    1. I 'hear' you Louise about liking all the seasons....each has it's pluses. And as far as the extremes each can have, we have learned to live with them.
      Oh yes! Those icy roads can be tricky!!

  7. Spring lover here too. After living in California for so many years, where there isn't really much of a spring, it's rather nice to experience it again. I think that you have to go through the pain of a cold and wet winter to properly appreciate springs beauty.

    1. That's correct Craig. We appreciate each season more through their contrasts. I can't imagine it being the 'same' all year round.

    1. Well Pat, this rocky beach will be half sand in the summertime. I don't know where the sand hides, but it magically reappears every summer.....much easier to walk on.

  9. Spring has been elusive this year and the weather has been worthy of talking about.
    Today we started out with frost, went up to 80f. We've had sun, violent storms, sun and then storms again. People take notice of that.

    1. I guess it has Stew. We are living through a definite climate change no matter what certain politicians say about it. I can pretty much handle most weather as long as I'm dressed appropriately.

  10. Well, I have spring in my heart Jim even if the weather isn't cooperating. The stone shots are mesmerizing.

    1. That is good Barb. When spring does arrive you will embrace it readily. I agree those stones are have that effect....so many.
