You say artsy, I say fartsy.

Mother Nature loathes me.
Frankly, I think she’s jealous of my beauty.
I look pretty darn hot if you take off your glasses.

To punish me, she’s throwing rain and cold temps our way.
Ha. Do your worst, Mother Nature. I can take it.
My daughter, however, can’t.
Guess which one is mine:

So, if any of you have any connections with Mother Nature, tell her I’m ugly.
And tell her playing lacrosse on rainy spring days ain’t no picnic.
Oh, and tell her the daffodils are screaming for some sun.

In fact, send her this artsy-fartsy photo of a daffodil in distress.
But don’t say “fartsy.” Mother Nature wouldn’t approve.
She’s very proper and refined. Unlike moi.

Are you sick of Mother Nature’s machinations?
I say let’s rebel! Don’t allow her to control us any longer.
In fact, let’s all use the word “fartsy” just to annoy her and see what happens.

You go first…

I’m tired of it being June one day and December the next, but Mother Nature scares me. I’m not sure I want to rebel against her no matter what she does.

She has lightning and tornadoes after all.

Good point, Christopher. The threat of lightning is good reason NOT to anger Mother Nature. Perhaps I won’t use the word “fartsy” any longer. Oh, drat. I just did.

Yes, we are pretty sick of these chilly 67 degree days and having to wear parkas and blankets to the college baseball games when it then drops to a freezing 61! So fartsy to you Mother Nature for messing with perfection in San Diego.

Up here in this part of the country…we’ve been calling Mother Nature all sorts of names…farsty never came up! Go figure! But…it’s supposed to be spring now…so as long as we don’t get snow….She’s golden! ;)

I don’t worry too much about the cooler/colder weather hanging on, because I mind the heat of summer SO much. Gotta save my complaining points and spend ‘em during the heat and humidity in a few months’ time :)

Personally, I think we should all go on vacation to Hawaii.

Or you could all come down here to Southern California. It’s 87 at the beach today. Not bragging – just sayin’. If it makes you feel any better, we pay for this weather with high taxes and “fartsy” politics!
