Summer Finally Arrived
The sun came out yesterday and it stayed. Looks like we are going to have a streak of “summer” weather here in western Washington. Two warm days and the news is going crazy, “heat streak” they’re calling it… Geez. It’s supposed to drizzle on Monday. How can a “heat streak” only last five days with only two of those over 90?
It was lovely today, 95 degrees with occasional light breezes. I took my laptop outside into the shade and opened a bottle of chilled Stella Rosa Rosso. It was heaven. We had kids and kids friends and cats and dogs all running in and out all day. Our four kids that still live at home (we have 6 kids between the ages of 18 and 29) spent the day between here and Lake Tapps to stay cool. The dogs and cats were a bit lethargic but we just made sure that the water bowl was kept full and that they stayed in the shade. And, as for Joel and I, we made sure our wine glasses were full, we stayed in the shade and we enjoyed the hell out of it. It was a day for relaxing, stoking up the barbecue, cranking up the radio, inviting over friends and keeping glasses full.
Here’s to summer… CHEERS!
Love, Laugh, Learn… LIVE!
