This Week...Shorts to Coats to Happy Birthday George

 

We began the week in shorts (ahhh sweet bliss) and are ending it with what I remember about February in Houston...cold, rainy, cloudy and windy.

Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distress of everyone, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse. George Washington



While it’s not as cold as what those in the north are experiencing, it’s still cold to me!

Laws made by common consent must not be trampled on by individuals. George Washington

It’s also President George Washington’s birthday today...February 22. It seems to be a little too commercial and lacking in respect that we lump the Presidents into one celebratory holiday.

Happiness depends more upon the internal frame of a person’s own mind than on the externals in the world.

 George Washington



And with Washington being the first, you’d think he’d get his own day. 

 

It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.   George Washington



That last quote reminds me of my High School principal used to say… I don’t expect you to make good excuses, I expect you to make good.

Enjoy your weekend!

Hello Kathy - while some overnight percipitation was predicted, I noticed some rainfall on the street/sidewalks last night when I ventured out for an errand.  I was wearing shorts which I plan on doing again this morning when the sun hopefully makes its appearance in less than two hours.

Being in Arizona, I didn't expect  it to be this chilly.  I guess it's the part of Arizona I am in.

We have rain here today too and I have to volunteer outside, so I will get the chance to wear my rain suit, haha.  It never gets used.

Good morning Kathy Streib - yes, we are in Florida.  It has been beautiful but yesterday was cold and raining.  We went to Vero Beach outlets.

It seems retail has glommed onto every opportunity to sell stuff!  I hate that. 

That said, though:
Happy Birthday, George. I hope you're not rolling over in your grave right now at the threat to our Constitution.

Thanks Barbara Todaro   EVERYTHING is commercialized!!!

Myrl Jeffcoat I'm not sure where we stand but even though we've had rainy days, where we are, it's been mostly drizzly.

Donald Urschalitz it's funny what we get used to. It was in the 50s+ here today and sunny. Actually kind of nice. 

Michael Jacobs I bundled up this morning only because it was a bit windy. I'd much rather wear shorts and flip flops.

Sharon Lee it always surprises me just how cool AZ can get. 

Brian England I don't even own one. I do have a lot of umbrellas. 

Sheila Anderson I discovered that I am familiar with fewer of Washington's quotes than others.

Hi Kathy:

Love the quotes, especially the last one.

Our weather has continued to be chilly at ight but decent during the day, although yesterday we had some really heacy rain plus thunder and lightening which is pretty rare for us. Nice to have the rain but it was a surprise.

Jeff
