What happened to the weather?

Maybe this is what they mean by global warming although last week I didn't believe it. Last week we had snow and temps in the teens. This morning when I walked out the door at 6AM, it was 54 degrees. It is 62 now at 8:30PM. It was 64 I think today which set a record. We are under a tornado watch now with serious rain forecast during the night. More like April or May weather. The snow is all gone except for remains of a pile here and there. Now I like the warm weather but this is just not good for our part of the country.

Tonight is the BCS National Championship. Louisana State University(2) vs Ohio State(1). Ohio scored a TD on their first possession. I'm thinking this is going to be a good game. Hopefully I can stay awake.

Do you ever come to the point when you just can't stand your hair a minute longer? Today was the day. Luckily I was able to get in for a dip and clip. Feels much better and looks even better yet. But I sure hate to put out the money. I keep thinking I should learn to do it myself but after reading the boxes, it scares me. I guess I'll continue to pay the price.

I think this is not really a flower. More of a weed. It is one of the last "flower" pictures I took this year. I was driving down a road I had never been on before and saw these on the side of the road. It was one of those trips when I had my camera and was looking for some pretty Fall foliage. I just happened to see these along side the road. It has become one of my favorite photos.

Bible reading is going well. My daily goal is 5 chapters a day. It is day 7 and I finished Genesis 35 this morning.

I think I'll sign off. We are having a really loud thunder storm with some lightening. Not a good time to be on the computer.

Guess what! I had one of those "got to get the hair cut today" days yesterday as well. There are quite a few $10 hair salons in NZ now to choose from; I pay $20 for a cut because it involves a bit of styling.

That's a big call - reading the Bible in a year. Did you consider the guide in the ODB? I did, but ... you're a better woman than me!

See ya

I hope you were able to stay awake for the game. DH and I wished we didn't (DH is a Buckeye).
Glad to see you in Blogland. Your photos are GREAT!!
Congratulations on your progress.
