Weekly Update

Last weekend, we had a brief glimpse of summer when the temperatures climbed up to 82. I am happy to say that I did not forget how to sit in the sun and relax with a book. There was not a leaf on a tree and thus no shade, the umbrellas were still in storage and I was melting, but it was so nice to be outside. And then the temperature dropped on Sunday and, bam, we were back to winter. But hey, I practiced for summer lounging and it felt great.
