The short answer: Yes. The deck on the house we are in for the summer is awesome! It's sunny at the right times and shady at even better times. Not to brag, but we had lunch and dinner out there today and the weather just hit 80 at midday.
And the most fun we had out there today?
We painted. Nothing fancy. Just a roll of paper, some brushes and some washable paints. The kids sat around the table for, I kid you not, 95 minutes. That's more than an hour and a half. I know. And I sat on a lounge chair. With my feet up. And the sun on my face. I might have even fallen asleep for a minute too. The last time I did that? So long ago, I can't remember.
And let's be honest - does it get any better than writing your dissertation on a lounge chair? I didn't think so.
I think I love the summer.
Next up: swimming lessons start in the morning. Let's see if I am still this relaxed after paying for something no one is going to want to do.
Are you a Mom?
Of course you are,
your shirt is dirty :)
