Missed!

Just about now, between rainy season and planting season, I want to escape. I miss the sun when it is cloudy and rainy and windy, and cold.

I miss all the things I left behind in California.

All the things I could be doing out of the house.

Like long walks.

Right now, a trip to France comes to mind, up and down a medieval town.

You get a good workout when you go up and down those twisted, narrow streets. This town in France, and most other European towns built on hilltops for safety, adapted their buildings to modern uses.  The building we see here became a truffle museum. YeaH! I could get a workout going up, purchase some truffle oil or other specialty, and get back home to prepare some omelette du jour before working in my sunny garden tending my lavender and petit peas.

I bragged to you in some ancient post that we walk rain or shine. We walk when the rain is not pelting; and the temperature  not in the 30's, and puddles not preventing us from exiting our front door.

Right about now,  a sunny piazza, anywhere else would be a good sight.

Can somebody send sunny pictures? 
Thank you.

Don't worry! There is a name for this malady, cabin fever, and there is a remedy.  Time to plan a trip!

I don't know .... Carl and I had some cool and rainy weather in Orlando - The Sunshine State! I am going to dream my vacations, like you. Maybe to Spain or Portugal or the Outback?

It's sunny here in Maine today, but who knows how long it will last.

Alas, we are still lacking in sunshine in central Texas. There are some rays peeking through, hopefully tomorrow & through the weekend we shall have sun.
Now is time for painting, re-carpeting, & outdoor clean-up. It's almost overwhelming to think of all there is to do.
Plan that trip & let us know where you're headed!

Isn't that funny, I've been thinking of all the wonderful places in the world that I have not been to yet and would love to visit!

It's quite a long list ~ I'm still hoping!

I would be happy to sit in my garden in the sun. That would make a very welcome change from the cutting winds and cold that we are getting now, even though the sun is deceptively shining.

Nuts in May

The warm images you create are inviting. Sometimes even within the cold to find a pocket of sun is enough to keep warm and forward facing. Sorry you've not the sun. I do have the sun today and so I will head out into it...and enjoy.

You pick up an atlas and plan!

I will happily join you in a medieval French town or a piazza, oh my yes.

Hope the weather clears so you can get outside and enjoy your walk!

The rain will be worth it when everything starts growing :) All of Europe has had dreadful weather in the past few weeks. I heard parts of Spain experienced snow the other day - crazy conditions!! We had some gorgeous sun in Cambridgeshire over the weekend - now we are a bit grey but dry.

It is sunny here, so i'm sending you some asap! I do hope the clouds break up and your weather will be just how you like it.
Good luck trip planning!

Rosario, where in California were you? I pine for my native San Diego this time of year, although we have been miraculously been blessed with sun and some warmth this week, for which I am so grateful. Sending you some! A trip sounds devine!

So a picture trip to Iceland wouldn't do?

Deborah said...

Well, it's finally sunny here in the south-east of France - although the temperature still feels more like something Canadian. Thanks very much for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment!

I tried to Email you some sunshiny photos but somehow i have copied the wrong Email address in my address book.
We are having exceptional weather up here for this time of year. This afternoon we had 10C in our backyard, we have some tigerlilly shoots usually not seen before the end of April. I even saw an ant looking for food. Really, but really out of sync with our usual mid-March. Seems El Nino is responsible according to our weather office.
