After living through the third wettest May on record, this first day of REAL sunshine (not overcast, not sunbreaks in between rain showers, but real all-day-long sunshine) feels simply amazing.
Reading all of your blog posts from the East coast and Middle states about eating fresh strawberries, and escaping the heat, and drinking lemonade, has been a tad bit depressing.
I am hopeful that the worst is over and the warm weather months will commence.
As of right now, 12:45 pm, I have made breakfast for my family and cleaned the kitchen, ran 2 loads of laundry through the washer, have 2 loaves of bread on their last rising and ready to bake, mowed the front lawn (by hand... with my reel mower),
and filled an entire wheelbarrow with weeds.
Now the kids are eating their lunch, and just as soon as I get them down for their nap, this is where I'll be...
I must be a solar-powered battery, because this sunshine has me Energized!
