The return of spring in November

I’m sitting outside a coffee shop dressed fully in black, with shoes instead of boots, absorbing blissful sunshine.

I look like Catwoman. Meow. 🐱

Why is this blog-worthy you ask?


We already had some snow. Not as much as the Dakotas or Minnesota, but still white stuff.

I’ve had to wear my winter coat at least twice in the past several days already. I thought warm weather was gone for the next 5, 6 months…

It’s November in Canada. πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈ

An additionally weird thing is that today was the first appointment for one of the cars to have it’s winter tires mounted. Never mind that all week it’ll be 20 degrees Celsius (mid 60s F) or thereabouts.

It’s like the world turned on its head and we’re suddenly a part of the southern hemisphere. πŸ™ƒ

I’m not complaining. I am thrilled to have access to outdoor patios while these endless restrictions continue to prohibit indoor seating in establishments.

While driving to this little bakery today after I dropped the teen at school I suddenly had a premonition.

I felt like I won some large amount of money with a lottery ticket.


I don’t buy lottery tickets…πŸ™„

But it’s a nice fantasy, no?

What would I do with this money?

Well certainly I would find myself a place to live that checks all my boxes. It wouldn’t need to be big. It might even be tiny. Maybe something like this?

A friend who knows me well sent this to me. πŸ’—

It’s perfect for a solo writer (but not a family in a country with 4 distinct seasons).

I would likely invest most of the money after giving some of it away, and after making a few indulgent purchases. Perhaps a nice new car? Mine is 18 years old…

Anyway. It’s all good. I have everything I need, and more, and this fantasy is just a stupid little dream to pass the time.

Happy Wednesday. And hang in there, America.

      1. Well I have read a good bit of your blog. I mean there’s some questionable stuff… but I don’t judge you. I’m pretty weird myself. Mostly annoying and a bit awkward.

      3. I’m not trying to be mean.. but I had some crazy followers on my last blog. Like somehow finding my email and emailing me out of the blue (without my consent)

        Going to old posts and trying to have secret conversations with me.

        Just being strange in general… I like to be weird and fun but not creepy.

        I’m married and am also a preacher. I tell everyone this. I believe in having a good time and being silly. And I’m a nice guy.


      4. You’re very welcome by the way! I enjoy your humor and wittiness! Almost as weird and goofy as myself… but not really πŸ˜πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ


  1. You mentioned at the beginning of this post that you felt like Cat Woman. So I will tell you a cat joke.
    The first cat says, “Meow.”

    The second cat replies, Meow, meow.”

    The first cat says to the second cat, “Don’t change the subject.”

  2. What a lovely daydream. I’m also surprised (but wary) of the late warm weather. The November long range forecast calls for it to be unseasonably warm for the whole month. I have laundry on the line! Just sayin’, we live in interesting times.

  3. Hi Writer of Words, good morning. I too am enjoying the sunshine on my balcony patio, drinking a cup of bone broth and eating a salad. I was looking for my bikini to put on (pushing the envelope a little bit), but realized I packed it away a few days ago when we were wearing boots and a winter coat. 😁
    The sunshine has gotten to me and I think it is spring so spent 2 hours spring cleaning first.
    Have a wonderful day, I think this is going to last until Tuesday.
    Sending you hugs and lots of love β€οΈβ€οΈπŸ€—πŸ€—
