Winnipeg has two seasons...

winter and construction.

Winter is officially over, and I am working in the yard again. I did inventory yesterday, and today, and will be doing it again tomorrow.

I am so getting a pedicure this Saturday. After all that climbing, my tootsies need some TLC. Possibly a massage as well. My back still hurts.

Also, I am the sort of woman that gets a lot of attention. I am tall, I wear lots of pink, I walk confidently, and I meet people in the eye.

I have noticed, over the past couple days, that I am treated much differently when I look like a ruffian. But, my behaviour is exactly the same.
Interesting.

Winterpeg has 4 distinct seasons...
Winter, Pothole, Mosquito and Construction. There is probably a reason why we live here, probably for the summers and the sunshine...the fifth season!!

Yes, but after a few days of mulling this one around in my pea sized brain.
You may look like a ruffian... but you are a ruffian with hand knit socks and imported beer (? can't quite make it out in the photo!).
And those are the delightful ruffians.
