What A Difference A Day Makes

It's Thursday, and I'm out running errands. So different from last week, when I couldn't get out, due to the snow! Bank, gas, post office, scratchers, Burger King! The freedom is great, but the weather is even better. Since I'm typing this at 2:51 a.m., I can't go out and take a picture. But I can give you one from Tuesday! Which was much nicer than the below-freezing temps on Monday.

That's 71 degrees, baby! And you can see how glassy my glass-back phone really is, I think it gives a better reflection than T-Hoe's mirror!
This picture was taken on the road that runs between the back of Dairy Queen, and my pharmacy. The building in the distance is the rat poison factory where our Neighbor Tommy got his first job. First job since his mom died, and we bought him that car. It seems like forever ago, but it was just a couple years. Maybe three.
Anyhoo... such a delightful change in the weather. My last errand day was like this:
That's the Sis-Town Casey's. You might think that the parking lot is clear past the snow, but it wasn't! That was slushy ice. I risked life and knees to get across that span to pay for T-Hoe's gas. 
Technically, the title should be What A Difference 12 Days Makes. Since that's the time that elapsed between the two photos.

I'm kind of glad Farmer H did my errands on the Thursday in between.

I'm glad you are feeling so much warmer now. You're almost into my comfort zone, just a couple of degrees higher and you're there. Of course that's the lower end of my comfort zone and coincidentally today's temperature here in Adelaide. So we're both happy :)

It's obvious he DOES love you--he was willing to risk HIS limbs so you didn't have to risk yours...

It didn't hold! We are having 50s and maybe up to 60 for the next few days. But it still FEELS warm when I walk out into the sunshine without a jacket. Farmer H will be firing up Gassy G Jr before you know it!

Farmer H only has a couple of good limbs left. Still, they are more functional than mine. He loves me so much that he gave ME the BIG Valentine heart full of chocolates. The off-brand chocolates... while The Pony got a smaller heart, but Russell Stover. What I would give for a good Whitman Sampler!
