part of the iPhone-ography...they have this cool app that creates this faded look with the blur and it. Even random things look more interesting, like my old bracelets.

Yes, I realize how boring it is to talk about the weather, but I am simultaneously pleased and perplexed by what the hell is going on. A couple of years ago, we had one of the coldest winters down here in South Florida. Iguanas were dropping out of trees dead from the cold, there was a record number of sea turtle rescues for cold, not to mention the manatees. And this year? Warm, warm, warm....

This might be one of the warmest winters we've had in over 30 years. Which is great! Yet also disturbing. While I love my warm weather, I know this is not normal. Not for this long period of time. I remember one winter-oh, it was fabulous! It was so warm and I spent the days of Christmas break at the beach, even swimming! A few weeks later, we were hit with record cold! That is more normal, the pendulum swings back and forth-warm, cold, warm, cold. Who knows? Maybe this is a bigger pendulum? Instead of measuring it in days or weeks, it's moved on to years... a few years ago, the longest cold spell, and this year, the longest warm spell?
Maybe I should just shut up and enjoy it while it lasts...
