The holidays are officially over, so life should be getting back to “normal.” But, what is normal? (Has there ever been a normal? Or, do things just seem less normal right now?) We finally used up the last of the fresh garden tomatoes, which we picked as late as November and wrapped in newspapers to ripen. This is not normal, but it is pretty impressive.
The earlier portion of this week, it was frigid, in the low double digits with wind chill even lower. Then, it zoomed to almost 70 degrees for a couple of days and we all peeled off our winter coats and frolicked.
Perhaps confusion is the new normal.
