Wintery Mix

After a whole week of overcast days, iffy road conditions and tons of rain, sleet and ice, it was bright and sunny today...thank goodnesss! I really do start to wither if we have too many consecutive days of gray.

Fortunately I had my monthly writer's club today which inspired to me add five pages to my work in progress.

Things have finally slowed down at work and I'm looking forward to getting on with my water aerobics classes.

One final thought before I turn in for the night. Who came up with the term "wintery mix"? The media uses it all the time now to describe weather conditions. Don't they realize "Ice and Snow" has fewer syllables?

I'm ready for a summery mix!

Heck, most of 'em pronounce it "Win-try mix," so the syllable count is about the same. But it's like fog. Have you EVER heard a weather-person say "fog" without the word "patchy" in front of it? I don't think I have.

Here in Canada we live with "wintry mix" so many months in a row that we're often on our knees, hands raised in the air, begging for "summery mix with any kind of twist" to lift our spirits!

Sorry. Sounds a bit dramatic, doesn't it? Probably because I worked waaaay too late writing last night and my current nip (novel-in-progress) is due to my publisher in 60 days --eek!

I prefer to have one or the other. Just leave the mix out.
