Balmy Weather

I'm not complaining! No! I'm revelling in the third (or is it fourth?) straight week of delicious balmy weather in Tel Aviv. At the same time, I know we're due for some rainstorms and I fear there might be fierce cold coming, so I'm trying to figure out how to store this lovely warm sunshine and dole it out when it's really needed. I'm dreaming of a mild Christmas.

Well, somebody has to be having nice weather, so why not you? Seems only fair....

I like your idea of justice. If try applying it to health and wealth too, would that be greedy?

Go outside and stand in the middle of it, feel the heat, breathe in the sunshine, memorize every aspect and then you have it with you when ever you want. I am constantly memorizing good occasions, someone's laughter, the smell of someone's hair... and drawback onto that moment of time whenever I want.

I tried to e-mail you but couldn't. I want to say thank you for all of your lovely words and virtual hugs during the last few months. They worked.

Sounds great. Hopefully, it'll last a lot longer.

Ah. I am enjoying the cold and snow. I just love this time of the year. However, in February, I shall return to this very post to breathe in the warmth and balminess you are sharing right here right now!

Dear Still - I tried to do exactly as you prescribed...and I added my e-mail address to my profile (in the description section, to reduce spam). It's savtadotty[at]gmail[dot]com

Fred - We're looking good until Friday!

Tamar - Welcome! Your comments reminds me that I'll also have to treasure memories of this pleasant weather during July, August, and September, when we have too much of a good thing.

Wandered in for a little warmth (It's 17 degrees where I am) and found it in abundance here!

Savtadotty said...

Patry - Glad you stopped by. For a really good time, come to Tel Aviv :-) I supply home-baked pie and tea!

It's very cold here. But I'm okay with cold. But if you want warm weather, I wish you springtime in the middle of winter.

Was talking on the phone to my friend in Norway this morning. I was outside without a jacket and sweating, and the thermometer in her car read .5 degrees. Yep - it was half of one degree. She was more than a little jealous. I didn't realize that a thermometer could be that precise!

Savtadotty said...

TLP - It seems that your wish is Somebody's command. Did you know that you have Scary Powers?

She - If I lived in Norway I would design a thermometer that went from Bundle Up to Light jacket to I Don't Believe It!

Good idea! Several years ago, I remember getting an email from her at the beginning of July, proclaiming how Summer had finally come. A few weeks later, she wrote that it looked like Fall would be coming soon. During the Winter, she used to count each additional minute of daylight, as compared to the previous day. Of course, no one wants to see their country wiped off the face of the earth, so I suppose it's an even trade-off.
