Apparently it is actually going to stop raining tomorrow. This is good news. We were working on a new ark but the allen key got lost. It's also good news for picture taking; looking at the rain streaks in the pictures above is a little depressing. But the point is, I am getting dressed, even in this cold, miserable rain. No, I didn't think I would be wearing layers and cords in mid-May (I was picturing dresses and maybe a skort... hmmm.. good idea, I should thrift a skort) but the weather has a mind of its own; it doesn't even listen to tweets. But you know the saying, when life hands you lemons... you whine about it.
In the interview I did with Cubicle Chic about my job, I said one of the keys to success in the landscape industry was not whining. This week I have been whining. It's true. It's hard to remember why you like your job and why you always step up to defend it, when you can't feel your hands and you need a 45 minute hot shower to warm up after work. We work through the cold in early spring and late fall but somehow, it just seems so much more cruel in May. If it doesn't warm up soon, I am just going to continue whining... which will inevitably lead to wining.
