Weird weather

We have been having some very fallish weather, which is wonderful, but today, it could not make up its mind! While we were getting ready, it was bright and sunny, promising a wonderful Indian summer fall day. As a result, we decided to walk to "close park" to play. When we left the apartment, the sky was cloudy and gray and looked like it was ready to rain any minute. In fact, it was spitting intermittantly. En route, I suggested a trip to the coffee shop instead of the park so we wouldn't get rained on. The kids both voted park, so that's where we went. After playing for about a half an hour, it was once again sunny and clear. Since it started clouding up again, we stayed for a total of about an hour and then headed to the 'Bou. We had our "coffees" (mocha for mommy and cocoa for the kiddies) and walked home in the rain and, once again, lots of gray clouds. It has been alternating gorgeous and forbidding all day.

I guess we've all had days like this...when we can't make up our minds what we want. And Mother Nature obviously has the same problem. Do you suppose that since it's the fall season, Mother Nature is acting like she's menopausal... might it be "hot flashes"? If not, maybe she's just getting ready for Halloween, with a little early trick or treating...
