Spring In Kansas


We are visiting Mom and family in Kansas. When I booked the trip in November I was thinking “early” spring right?! Well not exactly……let’s just say there have been NO bicycles 🚳 involved in this trip. We don’t seem to have what it takes to bike in 3-degree weather. We have walked and shoveled snow. Does that count?

Meet Diva we also fed horses!
My sister and her horse and dog Sarah. It was all of 5-with wind chill of -4.
We did get out for a walk the first day in a heat wave of 13!
The second day it was nearly 15….wow!
But this happened today. I think he’s having fun.
All star snow team. I was shoveling too but no photo. 
Well it is all a state of mind😊

Guess we’re going back to July visits.

Janet here of Jack and Janet in Seaside, CA. We just love to ride our bikes and share and read stories from other such afflicted souls.

    That mail box would have been a perfect fit for my “Springtime is a State of Mind” theme.

    Glad you guys got to have some fun with horses and snow blowers.

      I had a tuff time walking in the snow and ice !! Good on you for riding…..I’m very impressed!

    Love the letterbox, can’t fathom those temperatures and you are forgiven for not riding a bike in them.

      It was COLD 🥶 and we are home and it’s raining and windy and cold!! Winter needs to stop!

    The five o’clock state of mind is very appealing, the snow less so!

    Ooh, that looks chilly! It’s always good to see family… but always nice to be able to choose the best time (which is why I normally visit my parents in September!). I hope your mom and family were all doing well.

      We normally go summer….Jack really wanted to go sometime other than hit/humid July. He now says he’s rethinking July😂😂 this was very unusual as is the cold all over the country. I think Mother Nature is pretty pissed off about something and we don’t seem to be listening.
