The weather has been so strange lately, so unpredictable. For days we've seen a mix of sun and fog, extreme heat one day followed by brisk cold the next. Yesterday, what felt like a light breeze suddenly turned into a gust of wind so powerful I had to stop in the middle of the street so to keep from blowing right over. Needless to say, things have been changing rather suddenly these days--rather unexpectedly.

As a creature of habit, as someone who leans toward the familiar--toward routine--it usually bothers me when weather isn't steady, when I wake up and don't have any idea what I'll find outside my window. Usually, that makes me uneasy. Recently, though, my life has matched the odd weather; things have been constantly shifting, any sense of routine tossed right out the window.

And it's been just what I needed. Invigorating, exhilarating, altogether satisfying. Funny, isn't it, how sometimes we believe we know just what we need, when all along the universe knows better.

Ha, yeah. Here in Utah, the weather has been crazy. We've only had a couple of warm days and a TON of rain. This never happens. It's still snowing in the mountains which is very depressing.

I just wanna wear shorts already!!
