Never happy with the weather !

Jamais contents du temps.

English version below the French text

On entend souvent autour de soi des gens qui parlent du temps qu’il fait pour s’en plaindre. Quelques exemples:

We often hear people around us talking about weather which does not often let them happy

A propos dess belles journée ensoleillées certains finissent rapidement par se plaindre du danger d’un brûlant soleil

Under the sun MF

About beautiful sunny days some people become quickly fed up with this dangerous burning sun!

Watering, arrosage MF

Et maintenant c’est la sécheresse . Rien ne poussera dans les jardins . On est obligé d’arroser
And now it is the drought! Not any veggies will grow up: we need to water. We are tired

Et maintenant il pleut . Quel triste temps !!

And , now here is the rain ! What a sad weather!

Fog, MF

Ah! le brouillard! Si malsain et si dangereux pour la conduite . Ce n’est pas gai!
Ah! the fog ! Not good for the health and for the driving! Not funny! 😦

snow, neige MF

Oui la neige est belle mais les automobilistes ou chauffeurs de camions ne l’aiment pas et vous savez pourqiuoi!

Yes snow is beautiful but the cars or trucks driver do not like it and you know why!

Et maintenant c’est le gelée . Le thermomètre ne ment pas. Quand en sortirons-nous ?

And now it’s the frost! The thermometer doesn’t lie! when will we leave this cold weather ?

J ‘ ai illustré ces plaintes qu’on entend souvent avec de petits dessins médiocres.Je souriais en faisant cela!! 🙂

I illustred with bad small drawings those complaints we often hear. I smiled to making this ….:)

    Oui, on parle du temps pour ne pas parler de ce qui est plus important.
    Demandes à Carole de te montrer la lettre que je viens de lui envoyer, aujourd’hui. À la fin de la lettre je me plains du climat en Angleterre !

    A Les Nonieres le mari d’une des voisines qui venait au ‘club des tricoteuses’ toutes les semaines dans la salle communale, a sorti son fusil et tiré au moins 30 fois à la voiture de son voisin, avec qui il avait un désaccord depuis les années de la guerre, (dispute au sujet de fonds parachuté au maquis, qui auraient été pris par ce monsieur avec le fusil…).

    Personne au club a parlé du fusillade de la voiture, et qu’est-ce qu’il pensait, le mari be la tricoteuse. On a parlé du temps!

    • La météorogie devient un langage diplomatique très utile quaand ne sait plus quoi dire ou que l’on n’ose pas dire ! Tu as raison Stéphaanie
      Pauvre tricoteuse, elle va se retrouver seule !
      En tout cas j’ai admiré la composition de ton post. Bravo!
      Amitiés
      Michel

    Your illustrations remind me of one of my favorite books, “Le Petit Prince”!

    We are never satisfied .

  4. Les variations de la météo a du bon. Une météo uniforme serait d’un barbant … quoi que mon expérience en Guyane …
    J’aime bien les dessins “médiocres” !
    Une belle et douce fin de journée à toi, Michel, et à Janine.

    delightful art Michel … sadly some must always whine, I prefer to look for the positives! Nice post, hope some of those miserable souls read this post 🙂

    I enjoyed your drawings. I should try such. Sun is out with wind, but nice enough to sit outside awhile. I read a bit and then broke off some long Nandina. (should pay to have that done). I was out with Mr. Grey, he has wandered off because Wil was back there too. He’ll be back for supper.

  7. Lavinia Ross says:

    I have always enjoyed your drawings, Michel!

    Much love to you, Janine and the family, ❤

    We all need to learn to be more thankful. I once talked to a young man from Chicago who moved to California. He told me people who live in Calif. complain more about the weather than people who live in the North. I think he’s right. Californians think they deserve good weather just because they live there. Those of us in Illinois and Indiana are so happy for good weather when it comes that we smile and talk about how nice it is to everyone we see.

  9. I love your illustrations. This post made me smile too.

  10. Thank you for making this post…and your drawings, Michel! You brought smiles to us, too! 🙂
    I ALWAYS enjoy your wonderful drawings! You should let someone make them into a book for your great-grandkids! 🙂
    I love the weather changes…I like the variety in each…sunny, snowy, rainy, windy, cloudy, etc…they all have their positives to me! 🙂 And the more well-seasoned (older) I get…the faster time goes by…so each season is a joy to see and enjoy! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  11. Doug Thomas says:

    I think your drawings are charming, Michel!

  12. Caro says:

    Médiocre c est toi qui le dit j ai toujours adoré tes dessins …c est tellement vrai on est jamais content….aujourd’hui il y a du vent à perdre son chapeau et qu il tombe dans une flaque🤣🤣
    Je vous souhaite une bonne journée et bon courage pour la dyalise je vous embrasse bien fort carole

    • Ah! Tu te souviens de cette histoie de chapeau dans une flaque !! 🙂
      Oui la dialyse s’est bien passée mais c’est fatigant.
      Nous venons d’apprendre le décès de l’Abbé d’Aulnay avec qui Maman faisait l’aumônerie à Pinel . Quelle tristesse.!
      Je t’embrasse.

    Lamentarsi del tempo e soprattutto parlare del tempo è un escamotage Per non parlare di nulla.
    Comunque giusto per informarti io sono una lucertola che adora il sole e preferisce grondare di sudore piuttosto che avere maglie di lana una sull’altra.
    Non amo il buio dell’inverno Anche perché il mio delizioso giardino è spoglio.

    Un abbraccio caro 🌷🌷🌷

  14. Michel, you smiled while creating this post…It made me smile reading it and looking at the engaging artwork. The drawings are very charming and illustrate your point so well.

    Wishing you a sunny day…unless you were hoping for fog, of course! 🙂

    Love ❤
    Cheryl

  15. Joyce Hutt says:

    well done, michel. love your illustrations which so accurately depict each weather condition. thanks for bringing an extra smile to my day.

  16. maidyk says:

    bonsoir Michel,
    Hé oui, jamais contents nous !
    On préfèrerait le tiède !
    enfin il parait plus facile de lutter contre le trop froid, que contre le trop chaud !
    faut dire que le temps va d’une extrême à l’autre !
    et nous n’avions jamais vu autant de neige devant chez nous et ça glisse encore bien le matin …
    et beaucoup de familles sont tout de même restées sans électricité !
    bises et bonne semaine !

  17. maidyk says:

    heureusement que personne ne peut choisir le temps, autrement ce serait l’anarchie totale et puis nous savons bien que le temps changera !

  18. I love your illustrations. They remind me of James Thurber. ❤

  19. Love your post including the little drawings. It made me laugh and realize that is how many of us seen bad winter weather. You have a great day Michel. ❤

    do you know what we would say at school – there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing choices
    when i moved here, i knew they had ‘a lot’ of weather
    i bought good boots – rain, snow, ice
    good coats – rain, winter, windbreaker
    i have to take the dog out all the time – best be dressed well then i don’t have to complain 🙂

    • Weather is surprising, Marlaine.. I went to Ontario in December 2001 , outfitted like going to the artic circle and you know what ? No snow , no cold, a sweet temperature arounnd Toronto! ❤

  21. Gayle says:

    Alas , I am never happy with the weather! I should know better…….we get what the good LORD gives us!
    Love your drawings Michel. Hope you and Janine are doing well.
    Thank you for the birthday wishes!

  22. Marion says:

    Michel, I LOVE your drawings!! I have to say I’m happy with whatever the weather does. It’s all natural and we have to live with it, no matter what we think about it. 😀

  23. cocosangel says:

    I agree Michel. The weather is just crazy. When it is sunny, we long to have some cold. But when it is cold, we long for the summer. And in between the rain can spoil days.

  24. Julie says:

    As I type this Michel its snowing here , it does look beautiful , hopefully it will still be there in the morning. Thank you for our Christmas card, it was lovely xx

  25. Sartenada says:

    Bonjour.

    En Finlande, on parle bien sûr de la météo. Aujourd’hui, nous avons marché environ 5 kilomètres bien que nous ayons aujourd’hui un blizzard! Merci. Bonne journée à vous. Matti

    BTW, grand art!

  26. wissh says:

    Good morning / evening Michel. You’re so right, no matter the weather there is someone who complains. My eldest son hates the cold now. I hate the heat. Neither is willing to compromise comfort for moving to a more mutually acceptable climate. For now; because none of us are getting any younger. By the way, I love your little illustrations!
    ❤️ Christine

    Wherever we live, we can always find something to complain about when it comes to weather….Even in France. But there is a song called “April in Paris’ Sounds like Paris would be the place to be in April. Your illustrations are so very clever…so true. We are just never happy. Although the last couple days here in Central Fl are just about perfect…We have hot humid summers that we suffer. In Ohio, January was cold, snowy and ugly and we had to look forward to February which was also awful! You take care now … no matter what the weather…stay well. I enjoy your talents here.

    • What a relief to read you, Françoise .
      I am so happy of this and also you comfort me .
      You are right to say “no matter what the weather ….” Thanks for your encouragements
      Love ❤
      Michel

  29. suester7 says:

    Your drawings are very nice, and I’m glad drawing them put a smile on your face ❤️

    We human beings never seem to be satisfied with the weather, huh?

  30. Resa says:

    LOL!
    Thank you for this funny post.

    Whether the weather is cold,
    Or whether the weather is hot,
    We’ll weather the weather
    Whatever the weather
    Whether we like it
    Or not!

  31. Larry says:

    I love your drawings, Michel! You are a wonderful artist!

    Ah yes, the weather! We get it all around here!

    Hope everyone is well and staying safe! Cheers, my friend!

  32. L. Marie says:

    I love your drawings, Michel! I understand the dismay over the weather. Snow has fallen many days in my area. It is hard to drive in.
    Love to you and Janine. ❤️

  33. Jane Lurie says:

    I love your charming sketches, Michel! Your sense of humor shines through. 🙂

  34. This gave me a laugh, Michel. It is so true, and we all have this in common. 🙂

    God bless you!
    ❤ Caroline

  35. kaiori says:

    J’aime beaucoup les dessins! Ils me font sourire 🙂

  36. I’m sorry to say that complaining about weather is a national pastime here in Canada, Michel. We complain a lot! Me too. Maybe it gives us something to talk about.

  37. Nancy Clark Hislop says:

    Your drawings are charming!

    That is why the weather is such a good topic of conversation. People are rarely satisfied with it, but nobody can do anything about it. It’s not like talking about the government, where everybody thinks he or she is right and has all the answers, so conversations often end unpleasantly!
