It's Suddenly Saturday

Can you take another daffodil? The weather is so cold and windy that they would probably jump back into their skins if they could. Brrr. It is going to be like this tomorrow too with the addition of rain. Next weekend is out May long weekend, the traditional time for people to open up their cottages, go camping, rafting and the like. Hopefully the weather improves a great deal before then. It's a true spring though with wild fluctuations like this; hot, cold, sunny, rainy, windy and everything in between. I even heard talk of flurries somewhere in the Maritimes tomorrow but I don't think it's here on the Island.

I am meeting a fellow blogger on Wednesday. She is Svetlana from Russia but I think she lives in BC. I think that's pretty cool. On my Shutterchance blog it is almost a regular activity, people meeting up and sharing a photo day. Svetlana is not from Shutterchance but takes part in the daily photo memes that are listed in the links on my Photos and Pursuits blog where I do the same.

I promised Loudon Wainwright III. I'm a big fan. Here's Cardboard Boxes, Living Alone, I Am The Way, and Treasure Untold. Today I'll replace one I love, After You've Gone and add one that he was quite famous for, The Swimming Song.

We have our third day of rain today. It is quite cold, and even Gracie won't go outside.

The rain makes the world so green, and I should be thankful but....

Sounds like you all are having the same miserable weather we are. We aren't alone, but it doesn't make it any more pleasant...

Hi sis.
I hope the weather gets a LOT warmer for next weekend.
We are going to run the Salmon River.
It should be a good time Nic has never run a river before and she can't wait.
I'm bringing my camera so I should be able to get a few good shots. LOL

Kat and Ralph, April showers bring May flowers - May showers bring grass to mow and seeds to germinate.... I guess. Have to think of something good anyway. The sun always comes out again.

Thought you might be doing that, Alf. Ocean is going on a houseboat somewhere in Alberta. She's pretty excited about that. I'm working. Bah!
