The Winds of Change....

As I drove down the road today battling my way through the gusts of wind that flung leaves and dust at my car, it made me think of the changing seasons and the fact that we are coming into the 'oh god, is it EVER going to rain?' phase of the year again already! It hardly seems any time ago that I was waiting and gasping for a good down pour and asking everyone to do a rain dance for me! Then came the rains, the mud and a desperate longing for it all to stop and for the sun to come out again.

I have to wonder if we are ever happy with the weather? It's either too hot or too cold. It's raining too much or not enough... sun in or sun out? And I began to wonder - is there a perfect place on the earth where the weather is always just right? And if this magical place existed - would we still find SOMETHING to complain about?

Just thinking! :)

By golly Jayne, I think we would! 'Tis human nature to perceive the grass to be greener on the other side.

I complained and complained about winter this year and now summer is here rearing it's ugly hot head and I am complaining wanting winter back. I am forever complaining about something it seems.

I haven't heard any complaints about the weather so far, knock on wood. (Where's my head!) It rains half the night and the sun is shining all day, this summer. But we have had fantastic weather for doing hay lately, with no rain at all. Temperatures are hovering in the lower to mid 20C.

It is not magical though. Autumn is coming and it will be time to batten down the hatches, with the fall winds. I won't complain about this weather, no siree!
