At this time of year the average high temperature for my area is 67° Fahrenheit, and the average low 48°. However, this week Mother Nature is really confused. Earlier in the week we had well below normal temperatures, along with an overnight freeze. Yesterday and the weekend will be pushing 80°. The ups and downs make it hard to figure out what to wear. I'll use yesterday as an example.
6:30 am-Rolled out of bed, and it was chilly. I put on jeans, but in anticipation of the nicer temperature later in the day I dug into the back of my closet for a short sleeve shirt. That was too cold, so I added a fleece jacket. The last piece of the outfit was a pair of socks underneath my house sandals.
8:45 am-I got ready to leave the house for a meeting. Changed into my 'out of the house' jeans and tennis shoes. Grabbed a jeans jacket from the coat closet and slung a scarf around my neck before walking out the door.
9:15 am-Pulled into the meeting parking lot. Decided it was warm enough to leave the scarf in the car.
10:40 am-After the meeting I was glad there was nothing around my neck as I walked to the car.
11:00 am-Finished my first errand at the grocery store. Realized it was now
too warm to have a jacket on, so took it off for the rest of the errands
12:00 pm-Back at home, changed into a pair of capris. Swapped out the tennis shoes for sandals, but left the socks on.
2:30 pm-Took a walk with Hubby Tony. It was beautiful in the shade, but a bit too warm in the sun.
3:30 pm-After the walk it was too hot for socks. Took them off and just used sandals.
5:00 pm-It was nice enough to eat dinner on the deck. However, about 5:20 the sun went behind the trees and it started getting chilly. Time to come in.
5:30 pm-Put socks back on.
6:00 pm-Changed back into jeans. Staged fleece jacket nearby on couch.
6:45-Put fleece jacket on.
10:00 pm-At bedtime the flannel sheets that were wonderful just two nights ago were much too warm. Ended up draping a lightweight sarong over my shoulders and went to sleep.
2 am-Woke up chilly. Pulled fleece sheet up and went back to sleep.
