When Spring Comes 3 Months Early

The weather today is a perfect example of why it doesn’t always make sense to plan ahead. The temperature is already (before 9 a.m.) higher than the high temperature that was forecast a day in advance, and if the sun comes out, we could have May-like weather and a record high temperature. It’s not the weather anyone could have planned on, but here it is, and it’s a great day to do something outside, or get an early start on spring cleaning.

That’s possible, of course, only because I didn’t fill up my schedule for today with lots of things that I absolutely had to get done. Keep your schedule loose and flexible, and you can take advantage of the opportunities that pop up . . . even a spring day at the end of December.
